In light of professional ratings and user feedback, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones are still the best headphones in the world on the market, for the second year in a row and even more if we add the two years. previous dominance of its predecessor, the WH-1000XM3.
Since 2018, and despite fierce competition from brands such as JBL, Jabra, Sennheiser and even Apple with its famous Airpods Max, Sony truly reigns supreme in the market for circum-aural headphones.
Normally offered at a price of 380 euros, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones are currently on sale for 299 euros at Amazon.
If we can’t say enough good things about the WH-1000XM4, it’s simply because it has virtually no weak points. At the most, some bass a little too deep, that only music lovers with perfect pitch will perhaps be able to detect. For everything else, it is truly flawless. Whether in its design, its audio reproduction, its autonomy or its comfort, opinions are unanimous, there is nothing to throw away.
If the WH-1000XM4 incorporates everything that made the success of its predecessor, the WH-1000XM3, namely a one of the most effective active noise reduction on the market, a reception comfort so perfect that you could keep it on your head 24 hours a day, from full touch controls, a perfectly faithful reproduction of the sound or a monster autonomy of more than 30 hours, it also incorporates two very appreciable little novelties.
The first of these is the multipoint bluetooth connection. Thanks to a brand new Bluetooth chip integrated into the headset, it is now able to connect to two sources simultaneously.
The second novelty is the presence of a proximity sensor located in the left ear which will pause your music and deactivate the touch panel when you remove the headphones from your ears. Frankly practical.
Normally available for 380 euros, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones with active noise reduction are currently on sale for only 299 euros at Amazon.
