Industry-leading noise cancellation1

Industry-leading noise cancellation technology1 means you hear every word, note and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. These noise cancelling headphones feature additional microphones that assist in isolating sound for a reduction of even more high- and mid-frequency sounds.

As of April 21, 2020. According to research by Sony Corporation, measured using JEITA-compliant guidelines. In headband style of wireless noise cancelling headphones’ market.

The technology that makes it happen

Dual-noise-sensor technology, featuring two microphones on each earcup, captures ambient noise and passes the data to the HD Noise-Cancelling Processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the HD Noise-Cancelling Processor QN1 then applies noise-cancelling processing in real time to a range of acoustic environments. Working together with a new Bluetooth® audio SoC (system on chip), it senses and adjusts to music and noise signals, as well as acoustic characteristics, between the driver unit and ears, at over 700 times per second.

Optimizing noise cancelling

To maximize noise cancelling performance, the WH-1000XM4 headphones incorporate two technologies: Personal Noise-Cancelling Optimizer, designed specifically for you, and Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing, designed specifically for air travel.

Ambient Sound Control

Adjust ambient sound with the Sony | Headphones Connect app to cancel noise while still allowing essential sounds, like overhead announcements, through when you’re listening on the move.

Wireless freedom, premium sound

LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH® audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.

Sound you can believe in

A built-in analogue amplifier integrated in the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 realizes an unmatched signal-to-noise ratio for low distortion and exceptional sound quality for portable devices. Powerful 40-mm drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.

Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) co-developed with Sony Music Studios Tokyo, DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing instrumentation, musical genres and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.4
