10 reviews for Sony WH-1000XM4 Industry Leading Wireless Noise Cancellation Bluetooth Over Ear Headphones with Mic for Phone Calls, 30 Hours Battery Life, Quick Charge, AUX, Touch Control and Voice Control – Black


    I have been using these industry leading headphones by Sony, colour Midnight Blue, and trust me i find them worth every penny spent. Yes, i agree these headphones are highly expensive, some may say you can purchase Apple Airpods, Boss, Sennheiser, and other audio equipment options, but trust me nothing beats these bad boys.I am not a tech reviewer, but since being a musician, a music connoisseur myself and a huge fanatic of accessories such as headphones, earphones and smart gadgets, i can tell, these headphones are a revolution to the sound industry. I’ll be quoting every pros and cons that i’ve personally come across and might help a few of you who decide to purchase this beauty.Pros:1. Active Noise Cancellation (ANC): Let’s talk about people who love listening to their music without any external interference while working, walking, running, working out, during a flight, or any other mode where they’d use them, ANC is a boon. Switch to ANC, you’ll have the minimum of the minimum noise entering your ears. Only sounds close to you can reach at a very low level, else wise, you won’t feel a thing in your ear. Be prepared for some bashing from your parents when they scream your name on top of their voices, and you’ve got that ANC kicked in.2. 3 Ambience Sound Control (ASC) ON: Apart from the ANC, there are two more features that these bad boys offer. ASC when active gives you a chance to listen to your surroundings at a certain level where you can be aware of people speaking, birds chirping, children hauling in the park, and other sounds. This feature enables one to understand the surrounding noises and doesn’t feel isolated.3. Ambience Sound Control (ASC) OFF: When ASC is disabled or switched off, you can listen to your surrounding voices in a much denser state, ie. much more clearly in comparison to when the ASC is enabled. This feature is much similar to the ASC ON, just a slight difference of pitch and volume of the surrounding entering your ears.4. Head Phones Connect by Sony: Let’s talk about the main functioning unit of these headphones, the app provided by Sony under the name of Head Phones Connect. You can download it from the App store if you are an iPhone user just like me, as well as from the play store for android users.This app is highly functional as well as quite intact providing a list of various functions such as adaptive sound control which is highly recommended to lazy people just like me. Once all set up, the app detects your actions and locations frequently, and switches the headphones settings automatically.In addition, if you are a daily user of these headphones just like me, the app tracks your daily attributes such as at what certain volume do you like listening you music, which mode do you mostly use, which location do you travel, and then adjusts the headphones as per your choice.One feature which at first startled me a lot but i really got impressed by it which is the Speak-to-chat feature. It’s always annoying to either pull your phone out of your pocket and pause the music or to just pull off your headsets every time you need to talk to someone. This feature enables your headphones to pause automatically the instant you start speaking, and shall remain pause for about 20 secs and resume on their own if they do not detect any speech.For better sound quality, the app detects the size and shape of your ear through these headphones. This enables the device to perform better with distinct users.5. Motion Gestures: The right ear piece of the headphones has all the motion gestures such as taps for music pause/play, attend a call, play next/previous song and remove the headsets and the song pauses. These controls are highly helpful and can be easily learnt through the guide book provided, hence i won’t dive deeper into it.6. Number of devices that can be paired at once: These headphones provide an option of connecting two devices simultaneously. You can connect these headphones to almost every device that has a latest and updated version of bluetooth/NFC. Devices that i’ve paired them with are iPhone, macbook, hp laptop, and android phones.7. What’s in the box: The box comes with an impressive in-shape carrying case to carry these bad boys where ever you go. Also they include a C-type data cable for charging, 3.5mm jack cable which is quite long (haven’t measured it honestly, but it is as long as a regular data cable), and a dual port 3.5mm jack converter, which so far i haven’t tested.8. Battery Life: Well i must say that i am quite impressed with the battery backup these headphones provide. This device completely charges within 3 hours and trust me with an ON/OFF mode of playing music regularly, the battery stays up till 4-5 days, which is i bet a highly impressive feature which probably no other company audio equipment in this range might have.9. Voice Assist Functions: These headphones can be connected to google assistant, SIRI and alexa and perform really well.10. Easy access keys: The headphones are enable with two easy access keys on the left earphone. The custom key toggles between the 3 modes that i’ve already mentioned above which are guided by the in-built assistant voice. The power key pressed long enough, turns ON/OFF the device and pressed once, the in-built assist provides you with the current % of the battery left.11. Comfort: I should had talked about it earlier, but never mind. With no questions asked these headphones are highly comfortable, the cushion provided is the softest pad your ears can get. Since i am regular spectacle user, i find it hard with headphones imposing excessive pressure over the ears, making it a painful experience, but these headphones give a feather touch to your ears, even if you are specy or even while wearing a face mask. These go good with everything.12. Battery Saver: These headphones tend to power-off on their own if not in use for more than a minute which is a highly power efficient feature added by Sony to the device.Cons:1. If you are into running or any sort of longer workouts, be prepared for sweaty ears. Since the cushions on these headphones completely cover you ears, creating a vacuum sort of environment, no air flows in and out, and the sweat starts dripping down from the earphones, which i must state doesn’t affect them at all, only can be slightly irritating sometimes.2. ANC can be difficult to be kept enabled every time since it reduces the environment sounds to almost negligible, which can be dangerous while running or walking at a buss street. Be very careful while using this feature. Probably it is made for environments such as while travelling in a bus or a flight, and seems suitable for these environments.3. Since these headphones can be simultaneously be connected to two devices at once, which is a boon, but is also a slight problem in disguise. Imagine your headphones are connected with your laptop as well as you phone. You are attending an important zoom call while on your laptop and the headphones are in action, your phone starts to ring, now abruptly you’ll start hearing you phones ringtone, and the device gets a little startled to which device shall be entertained. i’ve personally faced this, but i tend not to connect them to two devices at once.PS: One highly important thing is, you won’t get an experience of the sound through reading review or watching Youtube videos. You might get a fair image of weather to invest in them or not, but you’ll only get the sound experience when you’ll listen the music through these bad boys.

    I know there is no point comparing TWS like AirPods pro to these headphones as they both are very different but most buyers might have a fixed budget like me in which they could either go for some good TWS or Headphones.I was first leaning towards AirPods pro 2 but later on changed my mind because -1. AirPods have a fixed battery life (not taking about discharge timing), your Airpods might only last for couple of years when you will start noticing a significant degradation in battery health. Moreover, it will end up in landfill as you can’t get its battery replaced. On the other hand, In headphones like these you can get the battery replaced and moreover you can use them in ‘wired mode’ (AUX cable included) without a battery!2. Bigger drivers = more vivid sound, I am not an Audiophile but in my experience and usage I have felt that the headphones generally produce a more pleasing sound. (it could be a personal preference)Pros about XM4 -1. Good built quality, soft to touch but still rigid at the same time.2. Very comfortable for long listening sessions.3. Multi device connectivity, you can simultaneously connect it to two devices! That in my opinion is a must feature in a premium headphone. You would just need to install the proprietary application in one device and connect the headphones to any secondary device using the app, after that you can control the volume, eq and much more from your primary device (using the app). Device switching is also very smooth.4. Noise cancellation and transparency mode is also very good, keeping in mind the various modes you could choose from the app according to your liking.5. Battery life, I have to never worry about the battery life as it could last for days with heavy use and above that you can put it on charging for short intervals of time whenever you are not using it as it supports fast charging.6. Proprietary Application, the Sony app for these headphones comes with so many little tweaks and settings that could provide you with very personal experience according to your liking.Cons about XM4 -1. Can get hot, as they are closed back headphone so you could feel your ears warming up during long listening sessions.2. Might be a little big for you, as they are over the ear headphones so they may look a little big on ur head but you will get used to it eventually.3. No water resistance, so you may not be very suitable for gym during sweaty workout sessions.Overall I would highly recommend these headphones if you have the budget and you are looking for something which would last for years to come. Sound quality is amazing, fit and finish is on point, very comfortable for long sessions. I myself was using TWS in past and switching to wireless headphones was a great decision.

    I have gone through a lot of reviews on various platforms before buying this product, but at some few places i observed people mentioning about the headphones causing them ‘tinnitus’, but as far as i am concerned i havent observed the same in my 10 days of usage so far. I am dividing my review into the below categories followed by pros/cons.1. Design and build quality: The design on these is a decent one, the build is definitely plastic, but dont get me wrong, they definitely feel premium, and even though thet used plastic on these, but its definitely good quality.2. Comfort: This is by far one of the most comfortable piece of headphones i have used so far, i mean literally wear them for 3-4 hours and you wont feel that you have it on ur head on those times. Although i havent stretched by wearing them for longer periods than that, but i am pretty confident, anyone will hardly have to worry on that aspect.3. Battery: I have found the battery life to be okay on these, they advertise a 30 hr backup but i think u can easily get 20+ hours on these, so yeah this department is fine as well but in current market i have seen different vendors like Marshall doing a phenomenal job with the battery by providing close to 80hrs in their ‘Major 4’ model of headphones, so yeah if you are some one for whom battery life is of utmost importance, i would suggest you to get something similar to the Marshall Major 4s.4. Sound-Quality: The sound quality is amazing on these, and why not, these are Sony’s, we can expect the same from them, the low are detailed, mids are well tuned, highs are balanced, the bass is good enough, but this is subjective, i mean these are not heavy bass set of pairs, for heavy bass you may look for something like the XB series of the Sony’s. But talking about the overall quality i am compelled to say that these are definitely a bang for your buck.5. Noice-Cancellation: I kept this topic for the last but i dont think i need to talk much on these as these definitely nail it, these are the king of ANC as i have already heard earlier at many places. they also give u the option to customize the level of noise cancellation. As per me they are only 2nd to noice cancellation after the Apple airpods max, but given the price point they completely justify what they are offering. Regarding call quality, i didnt get much time to check the call quality except a couple of occurences but found them to be decent. However if you are specifically looking forward to call quality, the bose 700s can be a better option for you.Pros: 1. Great amount of customization provided by the sony app. 2. Timely firmware updates for the headphones. 3. Good enough carrying case of the headphones. 4. Less weight as compared to other premium offerings in this segment. 5. Decent battery life. 6. Mesmerizing sound.Cons: 1. Lack of aptx/aptx-hd codec: At this price point atleast they should offer aptx codec. 2. Lack of water/splash resistance: Given the premium segment, they should atleast offer splash rating to these. 3. At this premium price point they should atleast offer a couple of years of warranty like the Skullcandy’s 4. Less number of support centers for these. 5. Lack of detachable earcups.Verdict: If you are ready to shell out this premium, then these headphones are definitely a good choice for you if you are looking for an allrounder.

    I recently purchased these headphones, and while they are undoubtedly the best of their kind, I must caution those who don’t want to feel like they’re in their own world, cut off from the outside. If you’re someone who values being aware of your surroundings or needs to stay alert, these might not be the right choice for you. These headphones provide an immersive audio experience that can make you feel like a “deaf” to the world around you. However, if you’re all about exceptional sound quality and don’t minod the isolation, these headphones are an outstanding choice.Fit: These headphones are incredibly comfortable and provide a secure fit, ensuring they stay in place during any activity.Voice Quality: The audio quality is second to none, delivering crisp, clear, and immersive sound. Whether you’re a music enthusiast or use them for calls, you won’t be disappointed.Size: They strike the perfect balance between being compact and still offering fantastic features. You can easily carry them with you wherever you go.Durability: These headphones are built to last, with robust construction that can withstand the test of time and use.Portability: Their sleek design and foldable structure make them highly portable. They’re your ideal travel companion.Clarity: The clarity of sound they deliver is unparalleled, ensuring you catch every nuance in your music or conversation.

    Battery life is good with ANC on. Build quality is great and premium. Noise cancelling is able to cancel out most of the static noises and low frequency noises but some high pitch noise does make it through at times. NFC pairing works flawlessly and it’s faster than the traditional pairing method. Comfortable fit, I am able to wear it for long hours.

    I have purchased this headphone (sony wh-1000xm4) during the republic day sale at cost of approximately 17,500 rupees. Before that i was looking for the sennheiser momentum 4. But after researching some articles like there i found with the help of a lots of graphs and rating that M4’s have slightly better sound staging than the XM4’s. But its not a huge difference like which they have in their price. But the difference was in their ANC’s like XM4’s totally destroy the M4’s in ANC department.Particularly, If I talk about the WH-1000XM4’s then I’ll say just go for it. Its sound quality is just phenomenal. It sounds like… means that should be sound in actual. The bass is not boomyy, muddy or over done. Bass comes when its required only with proper kick’s. Mids and treble are also done very well, you can easily point out each and every instruments of music or songs. ANC is amazing too indeed. If you can really spend this much amount on a headphone, then trust me these XM4’s will not gonna to disapoint you with its sound and ANC qualities. From my side its a must buy product…..(Thank You)
