“Sony WH-1000XM4” Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones:
Unannounced “Sony WH-1000XM4” noise-canceling headphones have leaked and all thanks to a new listing on Walmart’s website that reveals everything else there is to know about the refreshed headphones.
Most of the 1000XM4s appear to be identical to the M3s, with what appears to be a similar design, noise-cancellation technology, USB-C fast charging, support for Sony’s LDAC transmission technology, and touchpad controls. That’s probably a good thing, given that the M3s were already some of the best headphones around.
Specs of “Sony WH-1000XM4” – Listed On Walmart Website:
According to the specs list, the forthcoming model will include Edge-AI, Sony’s latest codec for upscaling compressed audio files in real-time. The technology uses artificial intelligence to restore the high-range sound lost in compression, which Sony says allows for a richer, more complete listening experience.
There’s also a new Adaptive Sound Control mode that lets users create custom profiles in the companion app that will adjust the noise-canceling based on location, and new Precise Voice Pickup Technology promises to pick up the user’s voice better through the five built-in microphones when on a call.
Also, the 1000XM4’s will be able to connect to two Bluetooth devices at the same time that’s a big plus in our book. While previous models haven’t supported dynamic switching between audio sources, and having to manually disconnect them from your iPhone so that you can connect to your Mac and vice versa just feels clunky.
Bose’s QC35 and 700 headphones have no trouble pairing with two devices and automatically switching between them based on which one is transmitting an audio signal. In our Bluetooth saturated age, it’s hard to overstate just how convenient this feature is.
Sony WH-1000XM4 Battery Life:
Like the current model, the 1000XM4’s will offer 30 hours of wired/wireless battery life on a single charge. Also, the users will be able to get five hours’ worth of charge after 10 minutes connected to a power outlet.
Launch Date and Pricing:
Despite the leaks, Sony has yet to formally announce the 1000XM4s. Although, with the product listing showing up, it likely won’t be too long before a more official reveal. And these 4th generations 1000XMs will have a price tag of $348.
