Sony WF-1000XM4 Overview
Immerse yourself in your music without losing touch with the outside world with the Sony WF-1000XM4 Noise-Canceling True Wireless In-Ear Headphones. Featuring the Integrated Processor V1 for audio clarity and active noise cancellation, two microphones in each earbud actively cancel out distracting ambient sounds. ANC is an ideal feature when trying to enjoy audio outdoors or near other people, but sometimes you still need to connect with the world around you. To this end, you can activate Ambient Sound mode to let the environment back in, or use the handy Speak-to-Chat function to automatically reduce music volume and ANC filtering by simply speaking.
Robust connectivity and exceptional audio reproduction are essential in a pair of true wireless earbuds, and the WF-1000XM4 deliver with support for Hi-Res Audio and an optimized Bluetooth connection that streams directly to each earbud. This connection helps to reduce skipping and keeps audio in sync when you’re streaming videos. Add in beamforming mics with bone conduction, and you have a set of headphones that can entertain you with clear audio and let you communicate with others throughout your day with clear conversations.
Listening to music or podcasts with ANC turned on can offer you a quiet and personal experience in public, but what if you need to have a quick conversation? Without the need of switching modes and adjusting volume levels, Speak-to-Chat does it all automatically. All you have to do is talk. Built-in microphones detect that you’re speaking and automatically let ambient sound in and lowers playback volume. When you’re done with your conversation, the earbuds can detect this, too, reversing the volume and ANC changes back to where they were.
Precise Voice Pickup
When making hands-free calls, being heard and hearing others is essential but difficult when out on the street or in a noisy area. To fix this, Sony incorporates beamforming microphones and a bone conduction sensor. The mics focus their pickup pattern directly at your voice, while the sensor picks up the bone vibrations made in your mouth as you talk. This helps to ensure your voice is all that your listeners hear. When it comes to hearing others, you can activate noise cancellation during a mobile call to block surrounding audio.
Adaptive Sound Control
When enabled, the earbuds can learn the locations you frequently visit and how you listen at each location. Then when you revisit those locations, it can automatically adjust your audio as needed.
Long Battery Life
On a full charge, the earbuds can run for up to 8 hours in ANC mode. A charging case is included that features its own battery for an additional 16 hours of power. Simply place your earbuds inside and close the case to begin recharging them.
In a rush? A quick 5-minute recharge in the case gives the earbuds up to 1 hour of playback time.
Google & Swift Pairing
Say goodbye to complex and annoying pairing processes with Google Fast Pair and Swift Pair. Google Fast Pair immediately pairs the earbuds to a compatible nearby Android device when the case is opened. A single tap on the notification is all you need to do in order to finalize the pairing process. Swift Pair helps you pair the earbuds to Windows 10 laptops, desktops, and tablets, offering you pop-up guidance through the process.
In addition to support for Hi-Res Wireless Audio and the LDAC codec, the 6mm drivers can utilize DSEE Extreme, which upscales compressed files in real time for better overall audio reproduction.
