New Design for the Sony WF-1000XM4: more Compact and Smaller Body
The first thing we notice with Sony WF-1000XM4 is that they completely change their design. The headphones change shape and reduce their size, one of the problems of the previous ones. They are now rounder and look like this will help a better fit to the ear.
Headphones always have a touch zone for the controls, several microphones, and a rather particular design that makes them recognizable. They are available in black or white, and the freight and transport boxes are brand new.
One of the most valid complaints about the WF-1000XM3 was the cargo box size. Sony got it and reduced its size by 40%. Of course, this doesn’t affect the battery because this feature is still one of the keys to the headset.
Sony WF-1000XM4 has a new audio processor and a new diaphragm.
The WF-1000XM4 has not only some significant design updates but also significant improvements to the interior. Sony has developed a new audio chip in charge of processing Bluetooth input and converting information to real sound. This processor now offers a substantial improvement in Noise suppression and the stability of the connection.
Headphones now detect the wind to remove it in real-time and not affect the music. It also has a mode that pauses music and activates microphones if someone is talking to you.
The audio processor is updated, and the driver is in charge of reproducing the real sound. This now has a new diaphragm capable of improving all frequencies. Also, smart headphones adapt the sound depending on location conditions and user behavior.
Finally, the battery section is considerably improved. The Sony WF-1000XM4 now offers 8 hours of playback in noise canceling mode (XM3 offers 6 hours). The charging case has been reduced in size but still offers 24 hours of use with the refills it stores.
In addition, this box is now compatible with fast charging and wireless charging. According to Sony, 5 minutes of charging will give you a full hour of music. All this with a considerable reduction in the size of the box.
