The much-awaited noise cancelling headphones from Sony – Sony WH-1000XM4 – were launched late evening on Thursday. Priced at $350 (about Rs 26,200), the Sony WH-1000XM4 is the flagship headset in Sony's wireless headphone range, and the successor to the popular Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones. The new Sony headphones go on sale in global markets in August 2020 and are up for pre-order now.
Sony has been bringing its products to India quite late as compared to global markets. But, it plans to change that with the Sony WH-1000XM4, scheduled to launch in India in September 2020. The headset competes against Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, Shure Aonic 50, and Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless headphones.
Sony WH-1000XM4 price
The Sony WH-1000XM4 are priced at $350. However, the company has been pricing its products quite aggressively in India. So, it will be interesting to see what the eventual India pricing is. As mentioned, the product will be launched in the country in September 2020.
Sony WH-1000XM4 specifications and features
The Sony WH-1000XM4 features a similar design to its predecessor, and are powered by the same QN1 noise cancelling processor. The headphones have support for gesture controls on the outer part and have features such as adaptive sound controls, wear detection, and a claimed battery life of over 30 hours per charge with active noise cancellation on.
The Sony WH-1000XM4 can be controlled and customised through the Sony Headphones Connect app, available for Android and iOS. The app allows users to customise the noise cancellation, set up adaptive sound controls, and adjust other settings such as the equaliser and sound modes.
The headphones also support Sony's own 360 Reality Audio format for spatial sound. The headphones come with 40mm hybrid drivers and support Sony's LDAC codec but no aptX support.
