Superior Noise-Canceling: Even Clearer Sound, Even Less Noise
The WF-1000XM4 provides industry-leading noise cancellation – now even better. The newly designed Integrated Processor V1 provides even better noise cancellation. Specially developed by Sony, this processor takes the noise cancellation performance of Sony’s acclaimed QN1e chip and goes even further.
Improved performance and Bluetooth® ‘System on Chip’ technology delivers the industry’s highest level of noise-canceling yet uses less power than its predecessor.
The WF-1000XM4 features high-performance dual noise sensor microphones for excellent noise cancellation. By having two noise sensing microphones per ear – one feed-forward, and one feed-back – ambient noise is heard and analyzed. Thus, this results in highly accurate noise cancellation.
A newly designed 6mm driver unit with a 20% increase in magnet volume also improves the WF-1000XM4’s noise-canceling capabilities. The increase in magnet volume and the high compliance diaphragm give improved performance in low frequencies and enhance capacities by generating a high-precision cancellation signal to the low-frequency range.
Industry-leading Noise Cancellation
Newly developed Noise Isolation Earbud Tips provide an improved fit with the WF-1000XM4. The new earbud tips are made from a unique polyurethane foam material that is soft and elastic, which maximizes the surface contact area between the earbud tip and the ear canal. This eliminates gaps to insulate sound and reduce noise, as well as improving adhesion to the ear canal for a more stable fit.
Even on windy days you’ll stay totally immersed. Automatic Wind Noise Reduction mode detects when it’s windy and automatically suppresses it.
Exceptional sound quality
The WF-1000XM4 now supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC, Sony’s industry-adopted audio coding technology.
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth® audio. This allows you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
The specially designed 6mm drivers reproduce a dynamic sound despite their small size, and the high compliance diaphragm reproduces a rich bass range. The Integrated Processor V1 also enhances sound quality and reduces distortion. It also enables LDAC codec processing and DSEE Extreme™.
Using Edge-AI, DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real-time. It dynamically recognizes instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes. Moreover, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
These Sony truly wireless headphones are actually phenomenal. Plus, it comes in their very own plastic-free packaging–environment-friendly and an industry first.
