Immerse yourself in your music without losing touch with the outside world with the Sony WF-1000XM4 Noise-Canceling True Wireless In-Ear Headphones. Featuring the Integrated Processor V1 for audio clarity and active noise cancellation, two microphones in each earbud actively cancel out distracting ambient sounds. ANC is an ideal feature when trying to enjoy audio outdoors or near other people, but sometimes you still need to connect with the world around you. To this end, you can activate Ambient Sound mode to let the environment back in, or use the handy Speak-to-Chat function to automatically reduce music volume and ANC filtering by simply speaking.

Robust connectivity and exceptional audio reproduction are essential in a pair of true wireless earbuds, and the WF-1000XM4 deliver with support for Hi-Res Audio and an optimized Bluetooth connection that streams directly to each earbud. This connection helps to reduce skipping and keeps audio in sync when you're streaming videos. Add in beamforming mics with bone conduction, and you have a set of headphones that can entertain you with clear audio and let you communicate with others throughout your day with clear conversations.


Listening to music or podcasts with ANC turned on can offer you a quiet and personal experience in public, but what if you need to have a quick conversation? Without the need of switching modes and adjusting volume levels, Speak-to-Chat does it all automatically. All you have to do is talk. Built-in microphones detect that you're speaking and automatically let ambient sound in and lowers playback volume. When you're done with your conversation, the earbuds can detect this, too, reversing the volume and ANC changes back to where they were.

Precise Voice Pickup

When making hands-free calls, being heard and hearing others is essential but difficult when out on the street or in a noisy area. To fix this, Sony incorporates beamforming microphones and a bone conduction sensor. The mics focus their pickup pattern directly at your voice, while the sensor picks up the bone vibrations made in your mouth as you talk. This helps to ensure your voice is all that your listeners hear. When it comes to hearing others, you can activate noise cancellation during a mobile call to block surrounding audio.

Adaptive Sound Control

When enabled, the earbuds can learn the locations you frequently visit and how you listen at each location. Then when you revisit those locations, it can automatically adjust your audio as needed.

Long Battery Life

On a full charge, the earbuds can run for up to 8 hours in ANC mode. A charging case is included that features its own battery for an additional 16 hours of power. Simply place your earbuds inside and close the case to begin recharging them.

Quick Charge

In a rush? A quick 5-minute recharge in the case gives the earbuds up to 1 hour of playback time.

Google & Swift Pairing

Say goodbye to complex and annoying pairing processes with Google Fast Pair and Swift Pair. Google Fast Pair immediately pairs the earbuds to a compatible nearby Android device when the case is opened. A single tap on the notification is all you need to do in order to finalize the pairing process. Swift Pair helps you pair the earbuds to Windows 10 laptops, desktops, and tablets, offering you pop-up guidance through the process.

High-Quality Audio

In addition to support for Hi-Res Wireless Audio and the LDAC codec, the 6mm drivers can utilize DSEE Extreme, which upscales compressed files in real time for better overall audio reproduction.

Google or Alexa

Need to interact with your mobile device's digital assistant to get information, manage playback, set reminders, and more? Simply say "Hey Google" or "Alexa" to activate them via voice command.

Find if Lost

If you misplace the earbuds, you can ring them remotely or view their last known location on a map, thanks to Google Fast Pair, which is supported on Android devices.

Auto Pause/Play

The WF-1000XM4 true wireless earbuds can detect when they are in or out of your ears. When taken out, they automatically pause your music, resuming it when the earbuds are placed back in your ears.

Sony Headphones Connect App

Available for iOS and Android devices, the Sony | Headphones Connect app lets you optimize your listening experience in a number of ways. You can use it to help you find the right size of included noise isolation foam eartips, assign specific functions to the earbud controls, adjust ambient sound levels, customize equalizer settings, and more.

Sony WF-1000XM4 Reviews

Not worth the price or hype

By mmorse1715
Rated 2 out of 5

I am very disappointed with the Truly Wireless earbuds. I have the Galaxy Earbuds 2 and I purchased the Sony earbuds because the touch control on the Galaxy earbuds is not very good. I was also hoping for better sound, based on the description on the Sony site and Sony's reputation. The sound on the Sony earbuds is not nearly as good as the Galaxy Earbuds. There is very minimal bass, and they do not get very loud. I have used the Sony app to try to adjust the sound and cannot get the same feeling for my music that the Galaxy buds provide. Additionally, the noise canceling is useless, I do not notice any change at all when the noise canceling is turned on. Beyond the disappointing earbuds, the Sony site has proven equally useless. I registered on the site and registered my earbuds, and I cannot find them listed anywhere on my profile. It is as if I have no Sony products at all, and maybe it will be better that way. I have not returned these because it just is not worth the effort. These will act as a backup, but they are far from my first choice. I will hang onto my Galaxy Earbuds as my primary earbuds, and just deal with the poor touch controls. I really wished Sony had done a better job with these. They sure talked them up a lot, to bad the results do not match the hype.

Connectivity issues, touchpad not working not even after a month of buying them

I've tried quite a few earbuds at varying price points and this is by far the overall best. It is a little pricey but rest assured you are paying for pure quality and not just the brand name. 10/10 would buy again. PROS: - The ambient sound mode (aka transparency mode etc.) works well, but unlike most other brands this one actually FUNCTIONS WHILE STILL PLAYING your video or music or whatever. - It legitimately last as long as advertised. Even using the ambient sound mode or active noise cancellation mode the earbuds still last about 6-8 hours. Case itself holds a huge charge so no need to charge it constantly. - Case is lightweight and fairly durable. - Sound quality is great. It may not be the very best in earbuds, but is without a doubt within the top 5 in sound quality and the software actually does a very good job of adjusting the sound quality so it sounds great regardless of the environment or sound quality of the video. - Very intelligent bluetooth connection. Most earbuds I tried its a chore to connect and switch between the earbuds and other bluetooth devices and getting the sound to play on the correct device, but I have never once had that issue with these nor even had to manually switch devices once. Somehow just knows which device I want the sound to play out of and quick switch back to earbuds when I would like. - This is my personal opinion and preference but the actual earbud cushions are the best I've tried. - It has a great track/find feature for both the case and earbuds. Great for people like me who are constantly misplacing and forgetting things, especially when its hard to find because it is black. CONS: - The earbuds have a very sensitive touch pad interface. Will sometimes register my wet hair (I have long hair) as input for example when I am running and sweaty. Honestly not a big issue, happens pretty rarely. - Lacking aesthetically, but more than makes up for it in actual function and practicality.

Falls out

The earbuds come with 3 different pairs of ear tips, S, M and L. I tried all three sizes, but the earbuds fell out quickly (within around 1-2 minutes of wearing them - I wasn't moving at all). I tried different methods of inserting the earbuds, including widening the ear canal by pulling the ear backwards and twisting them in. At first, they seemed to fit well, but then I could hear them slowly sliding out. As long as I was holding the earbuds in though, they sounded great. The noise cancellation was amazing as well. I can't use the earbuds though if they always fall out.

Very good, but could be better.

The sound is good after adjusting the 6-band graphic equalizer to my taste. The internal batteries don't seem to hold a charge when not stored in the charger case. That seem odd, because the app gives you an option to turn the buds off when not being worn. That feature doesn't seem to work on my set. I wish there was a way to adjust balance between left and right. My hearing isn't equally sensitive on both sides, so a having the ability to do some left/right balancing would be nice.

Didn’t last a week

Was super excited, but after a couple of days, the pair quit working together and only one bud would connect to the device at a time. SO FRUSTRATING. The reset/repairing process (which is like the most obscure, OCD triggering process ever!) just kept offering up false and exasperating hope. Likely my last Sony purchase.

Amazing product

Easy to use after several days of knowing the product, really superior to anything similar on the market regrading sound, etc. I was exercising in the gym and forgot my phone at the treadmill, I went over 100 feet away from my phone and they where still getting the signal from my phone!

Do the XM4s support multipoint connection?

Do the XM4s support multipoint connection?
Asked by: Richard
Hi Richard, Good question. The WF-1000XM4 do not support Multipoint Connection, but it can be paired with multiple devices (up to 8)—though it can play audio from only 1 paired device at a time. If you're looking for a Sony headphones that features Multipoint Connection, I'd recommend checking out the Sony WH1000XM4 and WH1000XM5 headphones. Hope this helps! -Sam
