I was surprised by the quality for this price.

The Bluetooth connection is stable even when the best sound quality is selected. Active noise canceling needs a master's ear. If a click or rustle appears in the music, especially audible during pauses, then it's time to experiment with the system adjustment slider. Headphones take the bar of operating time declared by the manufacturer calmly. Leaving 20-30% charge on the battery, the device is powered by the desktop clock's USB port approximately once a week. Charging itself takes 2-3 hours…

Pros
  • Headphones Sony WH-1000XM4 were planned to be purchased as support for wired Sennheiser HD 595, purchased around 2022, but easily won the lead. The technique is different, it is incorrect to correlate the models. For people of a flourishing age, one comparative fact will be useful. Although the new headphones sing noticeably louder than the previous ones, reaching for the highs is not necessary. The noise reduction system Sony WH-1000XM4 cuts off most external interference, and the sound of the device is revealed at low volume, fully preserving the brightness, juiciness, volume, density and high-quality detail. Tactile sensations are pleasing. The dimensions of the headphones are exactly such that they fit perfectly on the head, hiding human ears in the cups. Good ear cushion contact provides real privacy for the listener even without the inclusion of a noise reduction system that can, for example, completely erase the screams of a “modern silent” vacuum cleaner. The depth and purity of the sound struck immediately. Then came the surprise of the overall elaboration of the product. The case is durable, with compartments for cords and an adapter. At the end of the case there is a loop for hanging, on the side there is a mesh pocket for papers. So that the keychain of the runner does not ring, a special niche is provided under the eyelet for it! On the left cup of the headphones, equipped with power buttons and a function selector, a millimeter ball protrudes, on which the thumb neatly rests. Taking the headphones in the dark, it is easy to understand that the cup is specifically for the left ear. The headphones forgotten by the owners turn off on their own after 15 minutes. When you press the power button on the already working headphones, you can hear how much the battery is charged. About useful working functions in the reviews, it is sensible and sufficiently told by the owners; should not be repeated. The Sony WH-1000XM4 is the pinnacle of caring listener friendliness, fantastic attention to detail.
Cons
  • I did not like the offensive instruction, made in the form of comics. When it's hot, the leather on the ear pads doesn't feel like a good choice. The cord for charging the battery is greedily short. The signal transmission cable is thin, and with any movement it seems that the thread will break. Travel-averse shoppers would probably want to save on a genius case, but no, they'll have to pay for a case that's useless to them. Sony WH-1000XM4 existing problems with connecting to third-party TVs, set-top boxes or gaming computers are solved only by purchasing a separate Bluetooth adapter. The fight continues. Device manufacturers are at war with each other and do not notice the issue that has long arisen among buyers.

The right product for me, there were no problems.

Sooo glad that I bought these headphones at a super price of 17k, I didn’t regret their money, 100% uncompromising, suitable for any style of music, thanks to the settings in the proprietary application, you can customize it for yourself, the most sophisticated headphones, a lot of technological chips, everything is in 2022 and an assistant, all purity in place, the highs do not cut the ear, the bass does not rumble, the middle is audible, the stereo is excellent, the bass is soft, juicy, they…

Pros
  • The sound is super, many functions, suitable for any genre, excellent branded application, noise reduction, removal sensor, light, long battery life, bluetooth range
Cons
  • Price, not for sports, plastic case

Guys, I'll start right away with a comment: I waited for the headphones for a long time, read reviews, watched reviews and they are very different. Audiophiles talk about $100 mediocre sound Tech bloggers praise for functionality But to be honest, I bought headphones primarily to listen to music and I want to say that the sound quality is really mediocre, well, that is, the bass is of course very powerful, and the highs seem to be good, there is a middle, there is even a stage, but the sound is

Pros
  • Smart headphones Smart features work well Noise cancellation works well
Cons
  • The sound is artificial, there is no naturalness and the effect of presence, there are details but they are not natural, as if you are sitting in a car with cheap acoustics and bass in the equalizer. It seems to be pumping, but the details are not legible, the sound turns into a mess. In principle, it all becomes logical when you turn off the headphones and listen to them through the wire, and it becomes clear which speakers are installed, the sound is nothing at all, but when you turn on the headphones, the built-in DAC turns on and the sound seems to artificially emulate the volume and scene, but the sound is not natural, and electronic and mediocre and it is felt that the speakers are not very high quality. I understand the pricing policy of Sony, these are smart headphones, you pay for smart functions that work, in principle, not bad, but you don’t really want to use headphones if they sound 2+ on a five-point scale. Perhaps most people who listen to music superficially will like this sound, because the sound is loud, there is a lot of bass and they seem to transmit vocals not badly (except that the sound is artificial)

I definitely recommend buying, I didnt notice any disadvantages.

I will summarize at the beginning. The niche of this device is disconnection from the outside world and complete immersion in work / study / leisure with music or an audiobook. Self-isolation ))) And now more. We bought three pairs of these for the family, each, so that no one would be envious. Now, whoever with these headphones on his head has a reason for constant jokes and jokes - he becomes deaf)) Active noise cancellation dampens all external sounds to zero, from the explosion of…

Pros
  • Almost no one wrote that the problem with the sound quality and the microphone is not a problem with the headphones, but with the Bluetooth radio channel, which has a limited bandwidth, with any codec. As soon as you connect the headphones via the wire (which is included), the sound becomes crystal clear, and your voice in the microphone is without delay and clear.
Cons
  • These (and any other wireless headphones of this class) are always a compromise: either wireless comfort, very good but reduced sound quality, and a mediocre microphone. Or the perfect sound and voice, but on the wire. These are indoor headphones. If you walk with them on the street or in the subway every day, their delicate skin and plastic will quickly lose their appearance, and even without moisture protection, if it rains, you risk irrevocably burning their electronic filling. In addition, walking in them on the street is unsafe due to noise reduction. A couple of years ago in Strogino, a girl was cut off both legs by a tram - she enjoyed the music in headphones - she did not hear the tram.

I was surprised by the quality for this price.

Regarding the application - almost everything can be configured in it. At first I played with it, but now I don't use it at all. I also turned off the touch control after some time, because in the "hood period", especially in wet weather, there were false positives (changing the volume and overwriting), although the implementation is good, so I will turn it on again soon. ates arrive automatically. The first headphones of this class in my personal use. All expectations were justified. The…

Pros
  • Lightweight headphones. There was a fear that the headphones would be heavy and as a result it would not be possible to wear them comfortably throughout the day. The fear was not justified, as the headphones are really light and sit extremely comfortably on the head. Not felt at all when worn. The build quality and materials used are top notch, it's a pleasure to pick up the device. After 3 months of use, there were no scratches or other chips on the case. I was pleased with the excellent sound transmission and noise reduction, the ability to adjust the equalizer allows you to customize the headphones for a specific listening scenario. The battery holds perfectly, with almost daily use (about 3-4 hours), I charge the headphones in 10-12 days. You can use the noise canceling function when using the device through a wire. Very handy case, seriously. Made just as well as the headphones.
Cons
  • This is more likely not a drawback, but taste - a microphone. Initially, the headphones were not considered for the role of a headset when working online (meetings, negotiations, classes), but circumstances arose that they had to be used several times (a total of 10-12). The results are strange: when talking on the street, in the wind, the interlocutor noticed that the voice was heard clearly; in an empty auditorium, again, it's good; in a cafe, with quiet music, barely audible conversations, the interlocutors noted the complete absence of audibility. Voice transmission, in terms of sound, is worse than on the previously used AirPods 2 and AKG Y50BT (wired here). I understand that this class of headphones is not designed for a full-fledged such use, but maybe this information will be useful to someone.

The best price for such a product, I will buy more!

I must say right away that I don’t use headphones for professional work with sound, so I can’t even assess what frequencies they take / don’t take. To my unprofessional ear, the sound is excellent: deep, voluminous, saturated. I will focus specifically on the experience of daily use. I will share a few cases when it is not so convenient to use them. The rest of the user experience is just magical. (Especially the control via the touch panel on the bowl - just fire!). Chat mode was not for me.

Pros
  • Control and separate item volume control, sound, design, materials, connection to 2 devices at the same time, detachable cable, battery holds its stated 30+ hours
Cons
  • Short charging cord (never used my own, I charge through the old smartphone cord)

These are my first over-ear headphones. Previously, I was skeptical about them, they say they are bulky and only for home listening, but still decided to try. Chose between Bose NC700 and Sony. To be honest, I liked Bose more in terms of design and manufacturing materials, the sound is also good, but Sony was more attracted by the functionality and a large number of reviews / reviews. The sound in Sony, in my personal opinion (after all, this is a subjective concept), I liked more. Regarding…

Pros

There are deviations, generally tolerable.

I thought I'd write a review later, but I was forced to. Took for work, colleagues interfere. Noise canceling makes things 😊, silence in the sense. I like the sound quality, the quality of the materials, the design, the noise reduction. In general, super headphones, but problems got out in the first week of use. This is sad. For me, Sony has always been not an empty phrase, but every time it’s as if marketers don’t let them finish their products. Bought the blue one first. On the second day of

Pros
  • Noise suppression Comfortably sit Touch control Pleasant to the touch Convenient case
Cons
  • Crunch/crack when walking/moving head (this is hell) When calling, half of the people complain that it is hard to hear (also not so hot) The maximum volume is too small (sometimes you need to shout) Ears sweat (slightly, individually)

One of the best deals, glad I bought this.

Tastes for the sound of music are an individual thing, for me personally, according to this indicator, the headphones have come in. The only thing I strongly recommend is to turn off the playback stop function due to external noise, it reacts to everything, even if you sneezed or someone yelled outside the window. The control sensor on the right earpiece is, in principle, convenient, but I don’t use it, because I’m used to switching everything from the clock. In short, as a conclusion, I will…

Pros
  • Build quality, cool headphone case, intuitive phone app.
Cons
  • There is no block for charging (oh, these pseudo-eco-trends from "Ogryzka")). The microphone is poor, you can talk through it, but it is not necessary.

An ideal product for any type of consumer.

Good sound, really good. Do not expect something supernatural from these headphones, unfortunately for this money. But the sound is really good. The basses do not pile on, but it's like someone, as for me it's not enough. Noise cancellation at its best. The quality of materials and assembly is excellent. Two months later, I might add. Bass is not enough, but enough👍 The headphones warmed up and sounded as they should. Expectations were justified!)

Pros
  • Quality of materials, noise reduction

Revainrating 5 out of 5

I am delighted, the product is really worthy.

I have considerable experience in using the company's audio equipment and must state the instability of quality. The NW-ZX2 audiophile player played excellent lossless, but “stammered” on deezer and google music (they were not recognized as a warranty case), the mentioned MDR-1000x headphones are fine for everyone, but the plastic of the bow turned out to be a weak point, as many as two SRS-XB41 speakers rattled at certain low frequencies, the WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds are not bad for the…

Pros
  • The sound is very impressive, I'm completely satisfied. The volume is sufficient (which was lacking, for example, in the WF-1000xm3) Convenient personalization in the application, many functions to customize the device for yourself. They sit comfortably on the head.
Cons
  • The "soft touch" material is bewildering. Similar coatings are usually found on relatively cheap Chinese products. Moreover, there is a suspicion that it is not particularly resistant to external influences. Fingerprints are very visible. After the old MDR-1000x with the "leather" outer part of the cups, leaving only positive tactile and visual impressions, I feel disappointed with this completely soft-touch-plastic product. The buttons have also changed for the worse - both in design and quantity (although, can be customized) Ears sweat during exercise, but this is predictable.

Noise reduction. No kidding, I used to be skeptical about this technology, because it seemed rather damp. As there was a great demand for airpods pro with a noise maker, I decided to explore the market, since the technology was definitely several levels higher than a couple of years ago. The choice fell on the thousandth Sony series, and, to be more precise, on the wh-1000mx4 overhead headphones. I was very surprised (to put it mildly) at how cool this technology is implemented in this model…

My personal review today about the product Sony WH 1000XM4 Canceling Headphones Phone Call. I compared it in the store with AirPods Max. Sony is noticeably lighter, the apple really gets tired of the neck (for me personally), as I took it off, you feel relief. But the sound in the apple store seemed better, but after downloading the Sony application, the sound is quite. the same. Well, the price)).

Pros
  • Lightweight (compared to AirPods Max), sound (especially after downloading the application and setting everything up for yourself)
Cons
  • Nothing yet

The best thing Ive ever used, a great item for everyone!

My personal review today about the product Sony WH 1000XM4 Canceling Headphones Phone Call. I don’t even know who to compare them to. AirPods Max? Yes, they cost almost twice as much, but they are inferior in functionality at times, and the sound is noticeably worse . And so, we can say really the best option for premium wireless headphones for a mass audience =)

Pros
  • Great headphones, really the best in class. Quality and convenience are felt in everything. From materials and design to functionality and technology)) Appeared autopause when removing the headphones - a very handy thing.
Cons
  • The application itself is not very beautiful and intuitive. But Sony has always been there with software in principle. But a lot of functionality is configured and everything works like a clock)

I am very happy with this purchase, I will advise everyone!

I want to tell you my personal opinion about Sony WH 1000XM4 Canceling Headphones Phone Call. As for the sound, I personally lack a bit of medium and probably high frequencies. Detail for Wireless earphones is pretty good. But with what there are no problems, it is with basses, there are even a little more of them than necessary. I advise you to google and play around with the equalizer built into the application to find the optimal sound for yourself.

Pros
  • - Decent sound - Active noise cancellation - Pretty comfortable - Excellent build - Support for LDAC codec (Android only)
Cons
  • - Ear pads put a little pressure on the cheekbones - No support for aptX and aptX HD codecs

Product is unreliable, just don't buy it.

I want to tell you my personal opinion about Sony WH 1000XM4 Canceling Headphones Phone Call. - Noise reduction on 3+ In general, if it were not for problems with charging and fear of SONY services, everything would be ok. I do not really favor this company, I have a lot of negative experience. But the convenience and, most importantly, the sound here are very worthy. In the photo I am a happy owner, brought them to the SC.

Pros
  • - The sound is excellent. The sound is very subjective, but here it is just to have fun. This is not monitor sound, but entertainment. All genres sound great, the balance is perfect, I didn't even touch the eq settings. I like everything. There are still focal spirit wired monitors and parrot zik 2 wireless ones and an English hi-fi monitor audio system in use, as a result, in comparison, I am completely satisfied with their sound! - Connecting to 2 devices is convenient - Control on the headphones (buttons and sensor) is convenient - Connect quickly - Very light - Good complete kit with everything you need
Cons
  • - A month later, they stopped charging, now we'll find out what the SONY service is - The transparency mode is very weak, you have to strain straight to hear what they say (in parrot zik 2 this mode is twice as good) - Microphones are bad, worse than in parrot zik 2 and as a result not very suitable for voice communication - They have a 360 mode, like 3d sound, all this is pampering, it would be another matter if these headphones were connected to the PS5, but no, SONY do not want to make a healthy eco system.

Everything is fine, there are only minor drawbacks.

It’s hard to call it headphones, rather it’s a smart gadget, they are smart, they can adapt to the environment and are very surprised in this. of course, in terms of consumption of media content and everyday use in their routine affairs, they are excellent, but I prefer to listen to some musical compositions in classic open-type headphones, I don’t understand how some “audiophiles” praise the sound of these ears so much . It is fair to say that no good-sounding headphones will be so comfortable

Pros
  • Noise reduction - WOW EFFECT Lightweight, comfortable, soft as a beanie
Cons
  • Headphones are not for all musical genres, even more likely they are headphones for YouTube-TV-twitch, go to the gym just right, drag along the street, etc., but you still don’t feel like listening to music LDAC - what it gives, my not hear at all.

The quality exceeds all expectations, I recommend to buy.

Comfortable hard case. Good noise reduction, which does not make you sick. More like a light white noise - a pleasant rustling. The sound, in general, is at the level of wired headphones, but I would not say that it is admirable - just a good sound. Equalization can be adjusted to suit your tastes. Various little things that you quickly get used to, for example: touch control, proximity sensor. Well, the old prices - 19-23k can be given for them. But new ones - over 35+ - they are not worth it…

Pros
  • Design, weight, equipment, sound, noise reduction, application, ease of use.
Cons
  • Upper bow. The design of the headphones is such that the headphones sit on the head precisely due to the bow, which very quickly begins to unpleasantly put pressure on the crown. If you turn off the noise reduction or turn on the transparency mode, then the effect of a sea shell appears - everything gurgles, makes noise. So-so microphones - as a headset in calm conditions (at home, for example) is suitable, but for the street - definitely not.

The best I ever used, recommend it to everybody.

At first, the voice was annoying when switching the sound mode, but everything was decided after the settings from the official application. I do not use part of the functionality (changing the operating mode from location and 360) as unnecessary, I use it without taking off 10-12 hours a day. There is a bad feature when working with a computer - it is defined as 2 devices (headphone and stereo headphones). The headphone is considered a headset and uses a microphone, but the sound quality is…

Pros
  • The sound is great. Noise canceling is brilliant. The ability to simultaneously connect to 2 devices is extremely convenient in a combination of phone + computer. An "outside sound" mode with a natural level of passive noise isolation is extremely useful. Quality ear pads.
Cons
  • The touch panel for switching songs / sound / answering a call is not friendly with gloves, wet hands and cold fingers (in the cold in winter). The price is generally higher than we would like for such opportunities.

A good product, but having its own defects.

Bought more as needed. (Laptop - very noisy / interferes. In headphones - no problem and movies, and games, and so on) So I connected (in parallel) - to a laptop and a smartphone. Fine. I didn't find any obvious cons. Of course, there are wishes (to connect - not only to 2 devices; Listening while charging; .), but - they are from the category of not feasible. Nobody. Another thing (I recently discovered this plus) is that you can use a microphone on a laptop.

Pros
  • 1. The sound is normal. (I didn’t hear any obvious minuses, for sure) 2. Connect to 2 devices. (although it was like that - 4 years ago on the MDR-1000X) 3. Sound notifications - you can do it in 2022.
Cons
  • The price is still a lot. Leather upholstery - wears out, yes. (for half a year - it became noticeable. And this is on the purchased ones, in the official online store)
