A clearer, more stable Bluetooth signal

The optimisation of the transmission algorithm with the Integrated Processor V1 has made the connection more stable and less prone to sound skipping, even in an environment where there is interference. It allows sound to be transmitted to both ears at the same time with very low latency, and with a higher signal strength than ever before.

Everything's at your fingertips

The WF-1000XM4 headphones feature intuitive touch control settings—for example, tap on the left earbud to change from Noise Cancelling to Ambient Sound and long tap for Quick Attention, or double tap on the right to skip to the next track. What's more, you can assign your own functions to each earbud using the Headphones Connect app.0

Instant pause. Instant play.

Just take the earbuds out of your ears and the music stops—a proximity sensor knows when you are wearing one or both earbuds. Pop the earbuds back in and the music starts again.
