There’s nothing better than coming home and jamming out to your favorite songs after a long day. Or, maybe you like to pop your earbuds in when you’re stuck in the office or on the subway, to help drown out the excess noise around you. But what happens when your favorite song starts to sound dull or that playlist you always listen to gets stale? Sure, you could go searching for new music, but that isn’t always going to yield great results. Sometimes you just need to change how you’re listening to music to breathe new life into your favorite songs.

Having a great pair of headphones can make all the difference when listening to music. If you really want to get the most out of your favorite songs, then having a set that delivers the perfect balance of bass, mids and highs is paramount. Whether the headphones are for you, or another music lover in your life, grabbing a pair of Sony’s WH-1000XM4 or WF-1000XM4 headphones can completely change how you hear your favorite tunes. Available as over-the-ear headphones, or a set of true wireless earbuds, Sony’s XM4 headphones are a perfect blending of technical form and audio quality.

Blocking Out the Noise

There’s a lot to love about Sony’s latest headphone offerings. Designed from the ground up to deliver sonic quality audio, the WH-1000XM4 and WF-1000XM4 bring everything and the kitchen sink to the table. Built-in active noise canceling (ANC) means you never have to worry about the sounds around you overwhelming what you’re listening to.

Whether you’re walking, riding the bus or even hopping on a plane to fly across the country, the WH-1000XM4’s Adaptive Sound Control automatically detects what environment you’re in. It then adjusts the amount of noise canceling needed to ensure your music is always at the forefront of the sounds you’re hearing.

The WF-1000XM4’s dual noise sensor microphones help capture more ambient sound, too. These true wireless earbuds then deliver exceptional noise cancelation without distorting your music—all fine-tuned directly for the environment you’re moving through. Automatic Wind Noise Reduction mode can also detect when it’s windy outside, so you can feel free to jam out to your favorite sounds no matter the weather conditions.

Perfectly Balanced

Great noise canceling is no joke, but it doesn’t matter if the audio quality isn’t up to par. Luckily, that’s not something you have to worry about with either the WH-1000XM4 or the WF-1000XM4. Both sets of headphones are designed to deliver fantastic audio quality.

By default, the sound is perfectly balanced to deliver thumpy bass that doesn’t overrule the mids or highs. Vocals and instrumentals blend perfectly—exactly how they should—whether you’re relaxing with gentle folk music or rocking out to metal.Of course, if you want to fine-tune things yourself, you can always customize the EQ to your own specifications using Sony’s companion app.

The app also gives you access to Sony’s 360 Reality Audio feature with the WH-1000XM4. This can deliver even greater audio quality when listening to high-quality music services like Amazon Music HD or Tidal.

For your older songs, both the WH-1000XM4 and WF-1000XM4 use Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) to upscale compressed audio files in real time. This lets you enjoy every part of the song, even those high pitches that are normally lost when music files are compressed. If you’ve never listened to your favorite songs with DSEE, you might even hear some instruments you never picked up on before. That can completely change how you listen to those songs.

Sony has also designed the WF-1000XM4 to pair easily with PCs, and the WH-1000XM4 supports Bluetooth multi-point, allowing you to connect to multiple devices without having to re-pair them.

Whether your commute is long, or you just want a pair of headphones you don’t have to recharge every day, the WH-1000XM4 come with up to 30 hours of battery life, and the WF-1000XM4 offer up to 24 hours of usage before you’ll need to worry about recharging them.
