Sony has unveiled its long-rumored truly wireless earbuds WF-1000XM4. The WF-1000XM4 is a successor of the WF-1000XM3 which was released almost 2 years ago and was regarded as the best truly wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation.
Specs and features of Sony WF-1000XM4
The Sony WF-1000XM4 features the latest V1 processor that is coupled with a pair of earbuds on the side of both earbuds and is responsible for some excellent noise cancellation. The final purpose of all this is a better voice call quality. These earbuds support beamforming technology and a bone conduction sensor as well, and the V1 chip can help with wind noise suppression.
When the user wants to listen to their surroundings or talk to someone nearby, an ambient sound mode or speak to chat feature can be used. This feature uses microphones to amplify the ambient audio to prevent the earbud’s passive noise cancellation and will disable ANC whenever the earbuds detect speech.
These earbuds offer a better music listening experience by upgrading the earphones with better audio playback. These new wireless earbuds bring new 6mm driver units that offer a 20% increase in magnet volume and a high compliance diaphragm. Sony WF-1000XM4 is also getting Hi-Res Audio support, support for Sony’s LDAC codec for better audio streaming, as well as Sony’s DSEE Extreme, and Sony’s 360 Reality audio technology.
