Wow Just Wow, Sony Finally Did It. You know its a good headset when you just have to buy two pairs, the only other headphone I got twice was the HD650. Not even the QC35, nor the 700's made it to the double list, the XM3 got purchased and those I returned the same day due to dummy sound and that dummy cloth touching your ear inside the ear cups. This here, truly is one of the best things of 2020. Good Job Sony! Good Job!

About This Item
Industry-leading Digital Noise Cancellation
Industry-leading noise cancellation technology1 means you hear every word, note, and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. These noise canceling headphones feature additional microphones that assist in isolating sound while talking on the phone, resulting in improved phone call quality and the reduction of even more high and mid frequency sounds.
Engineering better noise cancellation
Dual Noise Sensor technology, featuring two microphones on each earcup, captures ambient noise and passes the data to the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 then applies noise cancelling processing in real time to a range of acoustic environments. Working together with a new Bluetooth Audio SoC (System on Chip), it senses and adjusts to music and noise signals, as well as acoustic characteristics between the driver unit and ears, at over 700 times per second.
Optimizing noise cancelling
The WH-1000XM4 over ear headphones incorporate two technologies to maximize noise cancelling performance. Unique Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing delivers optimal sound at high altitude while Personal Noise Cancellation Optimizer analyses unique sonic characteristics caused by head size, glasses, and hair, then tailors sound to you.
Ambient Sound Control
Adjust ambient sound with the Sony | Headphones Connect app to cancel noise while still allowing through essential sounds, like transport announcements, when you’re listening on the move.3
Proprietary technology for premium sound
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH® audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection. Powered by DSEE Extreme technology, the 40mm drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms are Hi-Res Audio Compatible, reproducing a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz. QN1 does 32bit audio signal processing in portions critical for sound quality. Additionally, the digital-to-analog converter and headphone amplifier integrated into QN1 realizes the best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion for portable devices.
Real-time restoration of all your compressed files
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) co-developed with Sony Music Studios Tokyo, DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
All-day power with quick charging
The WH-1000XM4 headphones are made to last all day and then some, whether you’re focused on your work or flying around the globe. Up to 30 hours of battery life2 on a single charge keeps you listening instead of charging. Low on battery? No problem – 10 minutes of charge time gives you an amazing up to 5 hours of playback.

XM4 FTW! The New Kings
Superior Headphones - None Better!
Beautiful headphones that deliver as promised. There is no better way to describe them. Quality construction, ease of customization and noise cancelling technology are superior to anything else on the market.
I preordered these and have been listeneing about 2-3 a day. Very comfortable, great sound and features
Crystal Clear / Better than Live
The sound from these is far better than anything I could have imagined. Words cannot describe the experience. If you try them, you will want them.
I spent quite a while comparing the 'XM4s with Bose's 700s and glad I settled on XM4s for two reasons: better music reproduction and better software support (through a mobile device)--Bose's iOS software is spartan whereas Sony's is feature-rich.
Sound quality is very impressive.
Great, but has issues...
I bought this about a week ago and it arrived just a few days ago. I really liked it, simple enough setup. However, my headphones randomly disconnect (still turned on) from my phone, and are unable to be phone via bluetooth. I am using an iPhone, and it's not pairing to any other devices. I've factory resetted it. This bug can happen anywhere from about 10 minutes to 40 minutes from connecting my phone with the headphones. The sound is amazing, comfort is also amazing, and the design and ease of the headphones + case is very good as well. However, if I were to know that this headphone had a bluetooth issue as severe as this, I likely would not have purchased it.
From the moment I bought it I have been really impressed with the features and the sound quality
Bring Back VPT!
Don't take away the custom EQ, but please bring back VPT as an added feature set. Nothing more to say...if VPT returns with a software update these will be hands down the BEST HEADPHONES WORLD WIDE, and the sells will flourish. For now I'm keeping mine. Purchased Silver but I won't change my 3 STAR review to 5 Stars until the VPT is brought back with a software update.
Toggling between Devices
Headphones keep switching between iphone music and tv on its own. Also even though mobile app will show that headphone is connected to TV but in actual it will be playing iphone music
