Sony Announces WH-1000XM4 Silent White Limited Edition Headphones
Sony's flagship headphone, the WH-1000XM4 and considered one of the best noise-cancelling headphones by many, will see a limited edition release this June.
The latest design dubbed 'Silent White' offers all the much-loved technology from the hugely popular WH-1000XM4 in a new stylish white colour. The release coincides with Sony's 75th Anniversary next month.
Only available throughout the Asia Pacific region, 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 compared to the standard black and silver colours, the new release headphones are even more stain-resistant and retain the high-quality white colour. Also, all accessories come in the same white colour, so your carrying case and cables seamlessly match the serene white of the headphones.
The WH-1000XM4 Silent White also features an array of smart technologies to create a seamless, hands-free listening experience. For example, start speaking to automatically pause your music with the 'Speak-to-Chat' feature, or enjoy adaptive playback thanks to a 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.
The WH-1000XM4 allows you to connect your headphones to two Bluetooth devices at the same time, as well as being NFC compatible. Battery life is reported at up to 30 hours battery life.
Designed for those who are always on the go, the super-soft, pressure-relieving earpads evenly distribute pressure and increase ear/pad contact for a stable fit.
The WH-1000XM4 Silent White limited-edition model will be available in Australia from June 2021 and will sell for $619 RRP.
