Coinciding elegantly with Sony’s 75th anniversary in May 2021, their new limited edition WH-1000XM4 Headphones is designed in a new Silent White colour to reflect the concept of silence and serenity of the noise cancelling headphones. It also features the same award-winning and industry leading noise-cancelling technology 2 as the much loved WH-1000XM4.
First off, let’s talk about its design. The WH-1000XM4 Silent White includes a pearlescent finish to the topcoat of the headphones to create a sense of depth and a luxurious touch. With an additional coat of paint than the standard black and silver colours, the WH-1000XM4 Silent White headphones are even more stain-resistant and retain the high-quality white colour. Plus, all accessories come in the same white colour so your carrying case and cables seamlessly match the serene white of the headphones.
While it is hard to get an edge over your competitors on noise cancellation features these days, Sony managed to deliver their best ever noise cancelling performance. This is achieved by the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 with Dual Noise Sensor Technology which features a new algorithm, plus a new Bluetooth audio System on Chip that adapts to noise, music and acoustic characteristics in real time.
The WH-1000XM4 Silent White also features an array of smart technologies to create a seamless, hands-free listening experience. For example, simply start speaking to automatically pause your music with the ‘Speak-to-Chat’ feature or enjoy adaptive playback thanks to proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors that detect whether your headphones are being worn or not. Adaptive Sound Control is another smart function that senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience.
Multipoint Connection is also available on the WH-1000XM4 and allows you to connect your headphones to two Bluetooth devices at the same time. In addition, the headphones are NFC compatible, offer up to 30 hours battery life 3 and are optimised for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa 4.
The WH-1000XM4 Silent White limited-edition model will be available in Singapore exclusively at Sony Stores and Sony Stores Online from May 2021.
