Never slowing down on its innovation, Japanese electronics manufacturer Sony has now released its latest WH-1000Xm4 noise-cancelling headphones, updated with a whole array of new handy features designed to make your listening experience more enjoyable and convenient.

Retaining its sound quality, the headphones utilize a built-in analog amplifier that’s been integrated into the HD Noise-Cancelling Processor QN1 to provide exception playback on portable devices, ensuring distortion remains low. Massive 1.57-inch drivers work in tandem with Sony’s Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragms to allow for heavy beats, reproducing a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz. It boasts a battery life of 30 hours and can provide five hours of usage in just 10 minutes of charging.

Sound performance and longevity aside, the headphones have now been geared up with a bunch of new tech as well. The new Speak-to-Chat feature will shut off your audio every time you begin talking, making conversations much easier and more convenient. In-built proximity and acceleration sensors can also sense if you’re wearing the headphones of not, automatically pausing your audio when they’re off. Adaptive Sound Control can sense where you are and what you’re doing, using that information to fine-tune the playback experience. It can even recognize locations you frequently visit and tailor your settings to better enhance sound quality. Other features include Android Fast Pair and Precise Voice Pickup, as well as upgraded microphones.

Sony’s WH-1000XM4 noise-cancelling headphones are now available at retailers for $350 USD. Learn more on the company’s website.
