Just when you think headphones on the markets couldn’t get any more advanced, Sony comes along with a new and improved wireless noise-cancelling headphone that will be sure to blow your mind away.
The WH-1000XM4 is the 4th generation of the 1000X series and it’s full of advanced technology.
“We are delighted to announce the highly anticipated WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones with industry-leading noise cancellation. As the successor of the acclaimed WH-1000XM3, these new headphones offer improved noise-cancelling performance and hands-free calls with multi-point connectivity, as well as a better fit with a lighter design. Speak-to-Chat is an exciting new feature which instantly pauses your music when speaking, allowing you to have a conversation without needing to take off the headphones or press a button. Overall the WH-1000XM4s are the perfect companion when on the go or working from home,” said Abel Makhraz, Deputy GM, Consumer Sales & Marketing Sony ANZ.
The new headphones undoubtedly include better battery life, better sound and better noise-cancelling compared with the previous model. But it’s the new intelligent features that caught our attention.
Adaptive Sound Control
This feature is definitely astonishing and making us gasp in excitement. The adaptive sound control is a smart function that allows the headphones to recognise frequent places that you visit. It then adjusts the ambient sound settings accordingly to give you the best listening experience. The “Sony | Headphones Connect App” is also another way to adjust and set your frequently visited places. This feature learns and gets smarter over time and it will automatically update the ambient sound settings as you switch between places.
Speak to Chat
Speak to Chat is a new innovative feature included in the WH-1000XM4. No more hassle of pausing your music or taking your headphone off to talk or listen to someone. It’s as convenient as it can get! Now the smart headphone will automatically stop the music when it realises you are speaking and then resume to what you are listening to 30 seconds after you have spoken. How cool is that! ‘Quick Attention’ mode is also available where you can simply place your hand over the earcup to temporarily decrease volume and hear the ambient sound.
To save more battery power, using the proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors, the music will stop when the headphone is taken off and play again when put back on.
The headphone is designed for those who are on the go. It is so light you will hardly feel any weight as well as the amazingly soft earpads which relieve and evenly distribute pressure. It is available in both Black and Platinum Silver and supports Google’s Fast Pair feature, making set-ups easy peasy.
If you are looking for a pair of outstanding headphones or simply an upgrade. The Sony WH-1000XM4 should certainly be on your watchlist!
