Sony WH-1000XM4 Specifications and Features:
As seen earlier, Sony WH-1000XM4 will have a similar design with its predecessor. This means that no massive specifications on audio will be seen. But, WH-1000XM4 is expected to come with 40mm drivers as Sony WH-1000XM3. Moreover, cushioning on its ear pads could be improved a bit. This will ensure there is a better physical noise-isolation.
Additionally, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple’s Siri support are expected. Also, the virtual assistant programmable button is expected on the left ear cup. When it comes to controls, we expect a touch-sensitive panel. This is also found on WH-1000XM3. This should be found on the right ear cup. Moreover, gesture recognition is expected to be more improved than in WH-100XM3.
Noise Cancellation Quality:
On the inside, we expect to have more changes on WH-1000XM4 than what it’s there on WH-100XM3. It’s hoped that active noise-cancellation will be improved. It’s expected that WH-1000XM4 will be able to cancel noise with higher frequencies. and also they use the last generation QN1 noise cancelling processors. This was allowed by WH-1000XM3.
Additionally, Sony WH-1000XM4 is expected to have a feature known as smart-talking. This will auto switch on the ambient sound mode when a person’s voice is detected. Thus, the user will be able to communicate with another person without removing the headphones.
Auto-adjusting Sony WH 1000XM4 settings depending on the wearer’s location is also an expected feature. Also, you can enter a preset place by utilizing Google Maps information. This will be among greater improvement. In WH-1000XM3 one was registering the ambient noise localities manually.
Another great feature expected is DSEE Extreme. This will build upon DSEE HX audio upscaling which is at WH-1000XM3. Thus, this means that audio that’s being streamed from more sources will have an aural upgrading.
Improved Wireless Connectivity:
Wh-1000XM4 is also expected to have Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connectivity. Rumors have it that, WH-1000XM4 will be able to connect to two devices at the same time. The user will also be able to switch between the connected devices on the fly. This feature will end the faff problem. This is brought by pairing & unpairing headphones from the paired device every time you need a different audio source.
WH-1000XM4 will lose the capability to use the Hi-Res Audio-LDAC codec when connecting more devices. Yet quick switching will compensate that.
Sony WH 1000XM4 is expected to be compatible with the upcoming PS5. WH-1000XM3 wasn’t able to pair with PS4. When plugged in PS4’s Dual-Shock 4 controller, its mic will be inaccessible. This is an issue that is expected to be addressed on WH-1000XM4.
Sony WH-1000XM4 Battery Performance:
According to Walmart leak, WH-1000XM4 is expected to last for about 30 hours with a single charge. This is an improvement from their predecessor which offers 27 hours. A quick charge of 10 minutes will give you a playtime of 5 hours. This will be enough for you when in a hurry. 30 hours of playtime is enough to be used for about 5 days.
Sony WH-1000XM4 Outlook:
Sony WH 1000XM4 will be the best noise-canceling headphones for you. However, competition is still tight with other brands like Bose and Apple. WH-1000XM4 will be more impressive and it’s here to be competitive with the likes of Bowers & Wilkins and Bose.

However, we hope COVID-19 won’t push it further as the launch of other products is done.
Sony WH-1000XM4 Price:
Because WH 1000XM4 is a successor of WH-1000XM3. Thus their price will be similar or roughly the same. Wh-1000XM3 cost approximately $ 349. Thus WH 1000XM4 will either be similar prices or a bit higher due to improved features.
