Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Big thank you to @Pascal... for informing me of this!

Summary

 A promo video for the next version of Sony's top of the line noise-cancelling headphones, called the WH-1000XM4, has been leaked. It shows numerous features that will be included (see below). It is expected to be released during a live stream on August 6th. They are estimated to cost $350.

 The features listed include:

  • HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1
  • Two Noise Sensors
  • Touch Controls (currently present on the WH-1000XM3)
  • 40mm HD Hybrid Drivers
  • DSEE Extreme real time audio up-scaling
  • Wearing Detection
    • Pauses audio when you are not wearing them
  • Automatically adjusting ambient noise
  • Ability to save sound settings for specific locations
  • Speak-To-Chat
    • Pauses music while you are talking
  • Fast Charging
    • 10 minutes for 5 hours of playback
  • 30 Hour Battery
  • Hands-Free Calling
  • 360 Reality Audio

Update (8/7/20):

 Sony officially announced the headphones today. If you are interested in learning about them, here are some reviews and the new tech news post. The consensus seems to be that these are great.

For instance, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones have a wearing detection sensor, which means they will stop playing audio if you remove them from your head. There is also a useful Speak-to-Chat mode where audio is paused if you start talking to someone while wearing the headphones. The audio is paused for a default period of 30 seconds, although this can be altered in the accompanying app. The WH-1000XM4 headphones are fitted with a QN1 processor, Bluetooth audio SoC, 40 mm HD hybrid drivers and they feature touch controls.

 

The list of features doesn’t stop there though. The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones have adaptive sound control depending on your activity and location (walking, sitting on a train, etc.) and you can program the device to play your favorite sounds in certain registered places. Hands-free calling is onboard, as is the use of Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa where available. Users can expect to enjoy 360-degree reality audio that is enhanced by the DSEE Extreme engine, which offers real time audio up-scaling based on the music genre or instrument type.

My thoughts

 While I probably wont be getting these, I am excited for them. Many of these features I have never seen on headphones (only earbuds) and I hope they come to lower end headphones in the next few years. I bet UrAvgConsumer will have a video out as soon as these are available.

I swear to god if this is $400 like the bose... nobody gonna give good reviews. xm3 was praised because it was frequently on sale and was relatively good price. $400 is not give enough value.

Just updated to add this (and everything else), but they are expected to be $350. But I bet they will be on sale often.

i own the OG 1000X and the WH-1000X M3, and i will not buy these. the features that are new, particularly wearing detection are nice upgrades but not worth spending the money for, since it's not a big deal to tap the side twice to pause my music when i reach for it to take it off...

Lets see if the sound quality can match the Panda THX Wireless for these to be worth a damn


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Yeah I talked about them in my latest Status, thanks @zeusthemoose for making a Tech News Post about them. Pricing according to reddit and the numerous Articles I've read leading up to this leak all suggest that they're gonna cost around 325 to 350 USD which would translate into around 349 to 379 CHF for the Swiss Market which is quiet affordable when talking High End Headphones.

I thought I heard it first in a status update, but I couldn’t find it again. Sorry I didn’t give you credit, I’ll update it now.

It's gonna be $349, and the WH frequently goes on sale

That said, I bought my M3 for $250, and it's the best money I've spent on a tech gadget, period, and looking at the M4, I feel like I'll miss nothing skipping this generation

I wonder if these will work in cold without the touchpad going crazy unlike M3.

Is that still a problem? I heard that it was an issue when the first reviews came out, did Sony never address them?

Yeah, I got a pair of WH-CH500s for about $70 USD. Might change them though, the build quality feels a bit cheap and the sound could be better, but the battery life and range is what I like about it the most.
