With the wireless headphones WF-1000XM4, Sony would like to compete directly with the AirPods from Apple. Not only a sophisticated active noise suppression but also a particularly powerful battery should help. Sony promises a really long runtime here. The price is also fixed.
Sony WF-1000XM4: New Bluetooth Headphones With ANC
Sony is about to introduce new Bluetooth headphones with active noise cancellation. Almost all details have now come to light before the official presentation. Accordingly, the manufacturer relies on active noise suppression, which should not put too much strain on the battery.
For the revised active noise suppression, the Sony WF-1000XM4 has its own processor called Sony V1, which is said to offer better performance with less power consumption. In addition, the LDAC codec and Hi-Res audio are supported by the new in-ear headphones.
Sony speaks of a runtime of up to 24 hours with active suppression of ambient noise. Without charging the battery in the meantime using the supplied case, users will not be able to avoid it. 8 hours of music with active noise cancellation are possible here. The charging case, in turn, allows two more charges. So Sony comes to the mentioned 24 hours.
The runtime looks even better if ANC is not used. Here the headphones last up to 12 hours on one charge. This results in a total runtime of up to 36 hours over the case.
Sony WF-1000XM4: Headphones For $295.49
The in-ear headphones from Sony are not a bargain. According to WinFuture, they should start with an official price recommendation of$295.49, although it is still unknown for which market this price is targeted. In Germany, the headphones could therefore be released at a slightly different price.
