Sony India today announces the new WF-1000XM4 – the latest addition to the truly wireless category in the critically acclaimed 1000X series. The WF-1000XM4 earbuds take industry-leading noise cancelling and audio quality to the next level. Made to fit every ear, they offer a personalised experience that adjust to every situation.
Industry leading noise cancellation earbuds that offer clearer sound with even less noise
The WF-1000XM4 features industry leading noise cancellation technology. Personally, developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V1 takes noise cancellation performance of Sony’s acclaimed QN1e chip even higher. It also features high performance dual noise sensor microphones for excellent noise cancellation. A newly designed 6mm driver unit with a 20% increase in magnet volume also improves the WF-1000XM4’s noise cancelling capabilities.
The increase in magnet volume and the high compliance diaphragm gives improved performance in low frequencies and enhances noise cancelling by generating a high-precision cancellation signal to the low frequency range. It comes with Newly developed Noise Isolation Earbud Tips which provide an improved fit.
Exceptional sound quality with new Integrated Processor V1
The WF-1000XM4 supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless to deliver Audio content in exceptional quality. The Integrated Processor V1 enhances sound quality and reduces distortion, enables LDAC codec processing and DSEE Extreme™. Using Edge-AI, DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognising instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
Enjoy crystal-clear call quality with Precise Voice Pickup Technology
The WF-1000XM4 comes with Precise Voice Pickup Technology to offer comfortable hands-free calling experience. Combining Precise Voice Pickup Technology with the microphones and a bone-conduction sensor, the WF-1000XM4 picks up your voice clearly and accurately for hands-free calls. Additionally, the new bone-conduction sensor only picks up vibrations from voice – it doesn’t register ambient sound – enabling even clearer speech when making calls.
360 Reality Audio lets you immerse yourself in music like never before
With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real. A new immersive audio experience can be enjoyed on the WF-1000XM4 earbuds when combined with an Android™ smartphone/iPhone that has a participating streaming services app installed. The 360 Reality Audio listening experience immerses you in the music as if you are right in front of your favourite artist. Listeners can enjoy a custom immersive musical field that is perfectly optimised for each individual user when using the WF-1000XM4 earbuds and the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app.
A smarter listening experience for seamless experience with minimal effort
Speak-to-Chat received widespread praise for its innovation when it was first introduced on the overhead model, the WH-1000XM4. The feature is now available in the WF-1000XM4 and lets you have short conversations without taking out the earbuds. As soon as user speaks to someone, Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses the music and lets in ambient sound so you can conduct a conversation – handy if you want to keep your earbuds on. Once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically. Speak-to-Chat recognises and reacts to user’s voice. It is based on Precise Voice Pickup Technology, which combines four microphones and sensors with advanced audio signal processing.
#Quick Attention Mode
To listen to an announcement or say something briefly, you simply place your finger over the earbud to decrease the volume instantly and let ambient sound in.
#Adaptive Sound Control
The WF-1000XM4 also feature Adaptive Sound Control, a smart feature that senses where the user is and what he/she is doing – for example, travelling, walking or waiting – then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. User can opt to have Adaptive Sound Control learn to recognise places that you frequently visit, like office, the gym, or a favourite café, and tailor sound to suit the situation.
#Instant pause and play
The earbuds come with instant pause and play for a seamless experience. If the user takes the earbuds out of the ear, the music stops. Proximity sensor detects when user is wearing one or both earbuds.

On a full charge, the earbuds offer 8 hours of power, and the handy charging case provides a further 16 hours to keep you going throughout the day. That’s up to 24 hours of noise-free listening and even longer 32 hours of play time without ANC. In a hurry? a 5-minute quick charge gives you up to 60 minutes of play time. No cables required with the WF-1000XM4 thanks to easy wireless charging with Qi technology.
Smaller, lighter and even better fit for maximum comfort

The WF-1000XM4 earbuds are the product of that research, combining a shape that matches the ear cavity with a new ergonomic surface design for a more stable fit.
