Pass and accuracy

Headphones are the first in high res audio certified sound quality. Where the manufacturer’s previous generation headphones were the best, we seem to have reached perfection here. You only have to go through a few topics from different reviews to believe.

Start with jazz. Make way for the album Love the sale Published by Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga. From the beginning, we were amazed at the amount of bass coming out of the headphones, but the good bass did not play the music of those who scratched their ears and hurt their heads. Among the participants in the muscle sound, of course, but the body, the pot-stomach and the eroticism here. On So in love, Senior Bennett (95 years) The range of voice reveals all its structures.

With classical music to complete. We tasted the refinement of the album 24 Introductions and Smoke Recently released pianist Igor Levitt. The WF-1000XM4 seems to be taking us to the studio. Hearing is clean, warm, measured three times, but Sony headphones can take advantage of the balancer at any time through the app, which undoubtedly has plenty of great opportunities on the market.

A complete application

You can customize the audio settings of the headphones and perform some functions here. Something called “talk to chat” automatically reduces the size of the headphones while talking. Enough to easily engage in conversation. The other, not the least, is called “ambient sound control”. This function makes it possible to measure the rate of external sounds we accept to hear in headphones. This is equivalent to the “here through” mode on Zabra headphones.

Obviously, active noise reduction is on the menu and WF-1000XM4 is the best. Sony claims this noise reduction is a 40% performance improvement compared to the WF-1000XM3. An impossible statement to verify, but our tests in the Paris Metro reveal the incredible potential of earphones. In particular, the noise of conversations around us seemed to be less compared to the rendering of the WF-1000XM3 a year ago.

Funny tips

There are still a few minor caveats. The WF-1000XM4s are very bulky and not suitable for small ears. Sony no longer chooses silicone specifications as most headphones offer, but polyurethane. This form-memory object, reminiscent of the noise-canceling plugs we sometimes put in while sleeping, can be more or less appreciated.

Headphones are less practical for inserting into the ear canal. Three sizes are offered, but Sony is good at offering the user the preferred silicone equivalent. Finally, the touch screen controls on headphones are not always very comfortable to use. This is a constant in 100% wireless headphones: you think when one manipulation is done by another. Some manufacturers, like us, prefer body restraints.
