A model to perpetuate the prestige
The Sony WF-1000XM4 have the difficult task of doing better than the Sony WF-1000XM3, the first active noise canceling headphones. To once again establish itself as the ultimate in true wireless headphones, Sony has made some improvements, starting with the design. From now on, we are entitled to a box with a flattened top. The rest is rounded. The Japanese giant has opted for a fairly solid design, but that does not detract from its elegance and ergonomics.
Compared to the previous generation, the Sony WF-1000XM4 case is 40% less bulky. The earcups have also been refined to be 10% smaller. If the tips of the Sony WF-1000XM3 are made of silicone, those of the XM4 are made of polyurethane foam. Firmer but more comfortable, this material effectively contributes to passive noise reduction thanks to better insulation than silicone.
Ultra-premium sound quality
To keep its main competitors at bay, Sony has made several optimizations. The headphones now have two microphones, one of which is pointed outward to pick up ambient noise while the other is pointed inward to analyze sound feedback. With these improvements alone, the active noise reduction of the Sony WF-1000XM4 is 40% more effective than that of the already sensational XM3. The integration of the famous V1 chip largely fulfills its functions.
To personalize the audio, Sony offers the Headphones Connect app compatible with Android and iOS. That being said, the default settings on these headphones are great. Sony has chosen to favor the bass with the same transducers that made the success of the XM3. Support for the LDAC codec will further enhance the sound reproduction of wireless headphones. Finally, in terms of autonomy, the manufacturer announces a autonomy of 12 hours in classic use and this rises to 24 hours with the Qi certified box. Charging is done through a USB-C port.
