If you liked the WH-1000XM3s, these incremental upgrades will make your ears happy.
The Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones Review experience with plenty of room for bass response to boom and punch, while mids and highs are clear and revealing. They’re capable of bringing out the best in most genres from pounding beats in metal to the aural clatter of dubstep and the raw energy of grunge. They also provide sumptuous tones for jazz and soul and can handle the acoustic clout of a grand orchestral score.
They’re compatible with both Apple and Android phones, as well as the Apple AirPods. A built-in microphone lets you use voice assistants like Siri or Google Assistant. They also support Bluetooth multipoint, which means you can connect two devices at the same time, say, a phone for calls and your music player. It works without a hitch for the most part, although switching between two different sources may cause some volume discrepancies, especially when switching back and forth to different services like Spotify.

Another cool new feature is Quick Attention, which pauses playback when you place your hand on one of the earcups and resumes it when you remove your hand. Sony has taken this concept further with Speak-to-Chat, which can actually recognize your voice, letting you continue chatting while your music is paused and only pausing again once your voice stops being heard.
Like the XM3s, the WH-1000XM4s have excellent noise cancellation, which can be adjusted on the fly using adaptive technology that adjusts the sensitivity to ambient sound around you. They’re also incredibly smart and can be set to automatically resume playing music once they sense you haven’t been talking for 30 seconds.
