Sony WF-1000XM4 Wireless Earbuds review


Meet the new boss

Rapid, full-bodied and eloquent sound ; Impeccable ergonomics and some truly useful features ; Impressive call quality

Unremarkable battery life ; ‘B+’ noise-cancelling ; Can take a few moments to position comfortably

Sony WF-1000XM4 review


What Hi-Fi? Awards 2021 winner. Sony delivers the goods with another stunning pair of true wireless earbuds

Clear, detailed bass performance ; Wonderful sense of musicality ; Comfortable ; Class-leading battery life

Missing Sony’s Multipoint feature ; Lacking ear tip choices ; No aptX HD

You won’t find many true wireless earbuds that come close to matching the all-round brilliance of the Sony WF-1000XM4

Sony WF-1000XM4 review: Sony’s best wireless earbuds yet


The Sony WF-1000XM4 just might be the ultimate true wireless earbuds package

Coherent, expressive and engagingly musical sound ; Exemplary control app ; Splendid call quality

Battery life could be better ; Noise-cancelling not quite the best out there

The Sony WF-1000XM4 are profoundly impressive across the board, and are arguably the best true wireless earbuds you can buy. Some rivals may outperform them in certain areas, but the all-round package is very hard to beat.

Sony WF-1000XM4 review: Class-leading noise-cancelling wireless earbuds, 'nuff said


Sony has done it again. It's taken an already excellent pair of noise-cancelling 'buds and improved almost every aspect, resulting in a class-leader.

Great audio performance ; Superb adaptive noise-cancelling (ANC) tech ; Comfortable for long periods of wear ; Hi-Res Audio Wireless and LDAC support ; Qi wireless charging on case

No support for Qualcomm aptX ; Still reasonably large in the ear ; Battery life in the case is a bit less than some competitors

Sony has done it again, with a generational replacement truly worth the upgrade. The WF-1000XM4 true wireless headphones have all the bells and whistles and then some, coupling great sound performance with class-leading active noise-cancelling and a...

Sony WF-1000XM4 Review


If you're in the market for some true wireless headphones, you'll surely consider the Sony WF-1000XM4. Is their performance worth their price?

— Brilliant sound quality and noise cancellation, along with excellent design

— Expensive, and call quality can dip in busy areas

These earbuds offer truly fantastic audio performance that is yet to be bettered by any other true wireless rivals. Noise cancellation is very well executed, and the slimmed down design is both easy to wear and still packs a decent punch of battery...

Sony WF-1000XM4 review


Updating its headphones every two years seems to work for Sony as the WF-1000XM4 are the best wireless earbuds we've tested to date

Compact and comfortable ; Incredible sound ; Almost endless smart features


They might be at the premium end of the wireless earbud market in terms of price but the Sony WF-1000XM4 really do offer the most premium experience with astonishingly good sound and countless features.

Sony WF-1000XM4 review: Cheaper than they've ever been


The Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds are the complete package, offering first-rate sound quality, effective ANC and numerous useful features

Excellent audio quality ; Smart, effective noise cancellation ; Useful quality-of-life features

No multipoint pairing ; Fit can be a bit fiddly

The Sony WF-1000XM4 don’t dethrone the Bose QC Earbuds as the most effective noise cancellers around, nor do they quite match the B&W PI7 for sound quality. But they deliver brilliantly in both of those areas and can't be beaten as an all-round package.

Sony WF-1000XM4 review


Sony tightens its grip on the true wireless crown

Articulate, convincing sound ; Great call quality ; Ergonomically impeccable

Battery life is just about acceptable ; Noise-cancellation can be bettered

By doing pretty much everything really well, the WF-1000XM4 continue Sony’s long and proud tradition of building the best true wireless in-ear headphones you can buy

Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds review


The Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds are fantastic all-round performers, offering knock-out sound quality and some great features. Are these the best wireless earbuds available right now?

- Amazing sound quality ; - Great battery life ; - Reliable connectivity ; - Good build quality ; - IPX4 rating

- Only two tip choices ; - Lack multipoint pairing facility ; - Adaptive sound control frustrates ; - Can't use left earbud on its own ; - Expensive

Whether or not these are the right earbuds for you will depend heavily on your budget and what you really need from your buds. Really, if you’re looking for a pair of running headphones, or you don’t fancy spending £250, then look elsewhere. For anyone...

Sony WF-1000XM4 review: Almost perfect wireless earbuds


The Sony WF-1000XM4 noise-canceling earbuds are a significant improvement over the WF-1000XM3, with a smaller shape, better ANC, and tons of features.

Great sound quality ; Good battery life ; Great noise cancellation ; LDAC Bluetooth codec ; Wireless charging

May not fit small ears ; Slightly lacking in high-end detail

“With an all-new design and tons of improvements, they're very hard to beat.”
