The technology with two noise sensors and two microphones on each ear cup detects ambient noise and sends the data to the HD noise minimization processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the QN1 then processes and minimizes noise for different acoustic environments in real time. Together with a new Bluetooth Audio SoC (System-on-Chip), it detects music and sound signals over 700 times per second, as well as acoustic characteristics between the driver unit and the ears. The WH-1000XM4 headphones use two technologies to maximize noise reduction performance. Unique Air Pressure Optimization ensures optimal sound at high altitudes, while Personalized Noise Cancelling analyzes specific sound-affecting characteristics such as head size, glasses and hair, then adjusts the sound specifically for you. LDAC transmits approximately three times the amount of data (at a maximum transfer rate of 990 Kbps) as conventional BLUETOOTH audio, so you can enjoy high-resolution audio content at nearly the same quality as wired connections. Built into the QN1 HD noise reduction processor is an analog amplifier for unmatched signal-to-noise ratio, low distortion, and superior sound quality for portable devices. Featuring 40mm drivers with liquid crystal polymer diaphragms, these headphones reproduce powerful bass as well as the full frequency spectrum up to 40kHz. Recover all compressed files in real time . DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) optimizes compressed music files in real time through Edge AI (artificial intelligence) developed with Sony Music Entertainment. Dynamic detection of instrumentation, musical style, and other characteristics of each track restores high frequencies for rich sound. Absolutely everyday with Speak-to-Chat. Intelligent Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses the music and switches to ambient sound whenever you talk to someone. So you can talk with headphones on, for example, when you don't have a hand free. Precise Voice Pickup technology, five built-in microphones, and advanced audio signal processing detect and respond to your voice. When you have finished the conversation, the music continues automatically.

The Sony WH-1000XM4 is a James Bond-class gadget among headphones. With its app, it offers immense possibilities for sound customisation and use of ANC and innovative, immersive 360-degree sound. Its tuning is particularly suitable for fans of rock, pop or hip hop, for whom the warmly tuned over-ear headphones serve up rich, deep bass. Disadvantage: It is noisy in Bluetooth mode.
