Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Headphones review


Are the Sony WH-1000XM4 the best headphones ever made?

Improved noise-cancellation ; DSEE Extreme audio upscaling ; Multipoint pairing ; Auto-play/pause and conversation awareness

Imperceptible design changes ; Not water-resistant ; Call quality still isn’t perfect ; Singing can pause the music

The Sony WH-1000XM4 deliver excellent noise-cancellation and surprising sound quality all in a lightweight, comfortable design. While they don't look significantly different from their predecessors, a number of new features including multipoint...

Sony WH-1000XM4 review: the T3 Awards 2021 winner for best noise-cancelling headphones


Sony WH-1000XM4 remain at the peak of noise-cancelling over-ear headphones even now

Lively, balanced and detailed sound ; Insane noise-cancelling ; A full suite of cutting-edge extra features

Can get trebly under the wrong circumstances ; No aptX or aptX HD support – seriously Sony?

Sony WH-1000XM4 are the best noise cancelling headphones you can buy. By keeping the sound as good as it always was to satisfy music lovers and adding some extra features tech heads wanted, Sony manages to keep its nose just in front of Bose, Bowers &...

Sony WH-1000XM4 review: The best just got better


Sony's over-ear wireless headphones for 2020 sport improved noise-cancellation and audio performance. Does that result in the very best headphones?

Superb music playback with noise-cancelling on or off ; Great battery life and fast-charge capabilities ; Packed full of useful features ; Very comfortable to wear

Not worth upgrading if you already have the XM3 ; No aptX or aptX HD support

The 1000X series of headphones win awards year-on-year and that trend is likely to continue. The WH-1000XM4 wireless ANC over-ear headphones bring one word to mind - superb. With an enhanced feature set that makes many rivals look stone age, these...

The Sony WH-1000XM4 are simply brilliant, possibly the best premium headphones on the market right now. Offering excellent sound quality, a host of useful and well-implemented smart features, and being very comfortable to wear as well, frankly you’ll...

Sony WH-1000XM4 review


Sony adds AI smart functionality and even better noise cancelling to its flagship WH-1000XM4 Bluetooth headphones

Class leading noise cancellation ; Transparent musical performance ; Inventive AI features ; Light and comfortable

Sonically same as XM3 ; No Bluetooth aptX

Supremely comfortable, with a transparent musicality that suits any genre of music, Sony’s WH-1000XM4 noise cancellers are the wireless headphones to beat in 2021.

Sony WH-1000XM4 review


Still the king?

Speak-to-Chat works well (and stops you singing) ; Noise cancellation even better than before ; Wear detection a much-needed addition ; They sound fantastic with any genre

Expensive ; Samey design might put people off upgrading

Simply the best all-round noise-cancelling headphones you can buy

Sony WH-1000XM4 review: The best just got better


Sony has made the best even better. With a bunch of seemingly small changes, the company has further improved its already stellar headphones. The WH-1000XM4 sounds great and the custom ANC automatically adjusts if you choose to let it. You won't find a...

Powerful custom ANC ; Immersive sound with punchy bass ; Automatic pausing when you speak ; Multi-device connectivity

Pricey ; 360 Reality Audio is still limited ; Adaptive Sound Control requires location sharing
