Sony WF-1000XM4 review: a sonic triumph


They sound great and cancel more noise than competitors.

Best noise cancellation in true wireless earbuds ; Excellent, detailed sound ; New leader in battery life among competition

No Bluetooth multipoint ; Microphone performance could still be better ; Only three sizes of ear tips included

With its new WF-1000XM4 noise-canceling earbuds, Sony is looking to topple the Apple AirPods Pro, Bose QuietComfort Earbuds, Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, and other competitors. Thanks to superb sound and battery life, Sony might have pulled it off.

Sony WF-1000XM4 Review: Silence is Golden


If silence is a true luxury, then perhaps the $279.99 which Sony asks for its new WF-1000XM4 active-noise cancelling earbuds isn't, in fact, all that lavish. The company which upended ANC …

Incredibly powerful active noise cancellation ; Excellent battery life ; Excels at a wide array of musical styles ; IPX4 and wireless charging support now added

No Bluetooth Multipoint ; Voice call performance is only average

Sony WF-1000XM4 review: a worthy upgrade


Sony's WF-1000XM4 is a proper upgrade over the excellent XM3 and delivers improvements in pretty much every aspect

Solid, secure fit ; Great sound ; Top-tier noise canceling and ambient sound pass-through ; Exceptional battery life ; Feature-rich (download the app) ; Fast, effortless pairing to Android and Windows

Can cause ear fatigue in longer sessions ; A $50 bump in price over the XM3's original MSRP ; No multi-device connectivity (multipoint)

Sony WF-1000XM4 review


Sony delivers the goods with another stunning pair of true wireless earbuds

Clear, detailed bass performance ; Wonderful sense of musicality ; Comfortable ; Class-leading battery life

Missing Sony’s Multipoint feature ; Lacking ear tip choices ; No aptX HD

You won’t find many true wireless earbuds that come close to matching the all-round brilliance of the Sony WF-1000XM4

Sony WF-1000XM4 Review


If you're in the market for some true wireless headphones, you'll surely consider the Sony WF-1000XM4. Is their performance worth their price?

— Brilliant sound quality and noise cancellation, along with excellent design

— Expensive, and call quality can dip in busy areas

These earbuds offer truly fantastic audio performance that is yet to be bettered by any other true wireless rivals. Noise cancellation is very well executed, and the slimmed down design is both easy to wear and still packs a decent punch of battery...

Sony WF-1000XM4 review


Updating its headphones every two years seems to work for Sony as the WF-1000XM4 are the best wireless earbuds we've tested to date

Compact and comfortable ; Incredible sound ; Almost endless smart features


They might be at the premium end of the wireless earbud market in terms of price but the Sony WF-1000XM4 really do offer the most premium experience with astonishingly good sound and countless features.
