Summary

Sony WH-1000XM4 is noise-canceling headphones that are the successor to WH-1000XM3. WH-1000XM3 was a great success, and it set the standards for headphones to come. So, people were eagerly waiting for the WH-1000XM4, which has been launched in Nepal as well.

Let’s look at some of the key features of this headphone.

Arguably the Best Noise Cancelling Technology  

No matter what environment you are in, you will hear every note and tune with perfect clarity when you use this headphone. Additional microphones in this headphone assists in isolating the mid and high-frequency sounds. Two additional microphones in each ear cup catch the surrounding noise. Once the noise is captured, it is transferred to Processor QN1, which applies the noise-canceling processing to a range of acoustic environments in real-time. This headphone has the ability to adjust to music signals and noise signals to give you a great listening experience.

This incorporates two different noise-canceling technologies:

  • Personal Noise-canceling optimizer
  • Atmospheric pressure optimizer

The combination of these two technologies is what makes noise-canceling very effective during air travel.

Other Features

You don’t have to worry about missing out on important sounds when you are using this headphone as the Sony Headphones app allows you to keep essential sounds when still canceling the unwanted noise. 

This feature is great when you are trying to have a conversation with others with the headphone on. Users can easily decrease the volume of the audio in this headphone by putting the hand on the right earcup.

Users can also adjust the headphone settings based on the environment they are in. The Edge AI used in this phone can recognize various elements of the songs like genre, instruments, e.t.c.

The headphone supports Alexa as well as the Google voice assistant. During the hands-free call, this phone uses advanced signal processing for better voice quality. The technology called Precise voice pickup controls the five microphones in WH-1000 XM4.

This phone is said to provide 30 hours of battery backup. Just 10 minutes of charge can add 5 hours of playback time, according to the makers.
