Enhance your daily life with wireless noise-cancelling headphones

This Live Better segment takes you through a day-in-the-life of the WF-1000XM3 wireless, noise cancelling earbuds and the WH-1000XM4 wireless, noise cancelling headphones, showing how they’re everything you need them to be. They’ll automatically adjust the ambient sound on your walk to the coffee shop, let you get your order in without removing them, and enhance your favourite music and podcasts while you get around on the MRT. New, improved features and technology allow you to pay attention when you need to and fully immerse yourself in high-quality audio playback when you don’t.

The Sony WH-1000XM4 wireless, noise cancelling headphones let you control the soundtrack to your life

En route to her work, Emma’s hands are full. All she has to do is start speaking and her WH-1000XM4 headphones react to her voice. The innovative Speak-to-Chat function stops her music so she can order her iced latte without removing her headphones. Chatting with her barista is easy with Precise Voice Pickup technology. Even in a crowd, 5 of the microphones, along with advanced audio signal processing, pick up voices clearly and with precision. Her music automatically starts playing after she’s last spoken. As she walks out into the busy street, Adaptive Sound Control senses where she is, what she’s doing, and adjusts ambient sound settings for an ideal listening experience.

 Hear only the sounds you want to hear

 Because she’s set up her frequently visited locations and preferred settings using the Sony Headphones Connect App, ambient sound settings automatically update as she strides into the station and onto the train. She never frets about missing important announcements. Quick Attention mode allows her to simply put her right hand over the earcup, decrease the volume and hear ambient sound in an instant, allowing her to embrace the world around her on her terms.


Emma’s started her favourite podcast and enjoys every nuance with Sony’s best-ever noise cancelling performance, boasting reduced high- and mid-frequency sounds. Dual Noise Sensor technology captures ambient noise and passes the data to the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 and it’s all part of the effortless daily experience she’s grown accustomed to.

Look and feel great wearing them

Everything Emma wears is chosen with style and comfort in mind. These wireless headphones are a sophisticated part of her wardrobe. At times the stable, lightweight design and pressure-relieving earpads mean she forgets she’s wearing them at all. Today, she paired them with her NW-A106HN Walkman, for the ultimate in sleek design and sound quality. No need to take it out of her pocket, as she chooses what she wants to hear with thoughtfully-designed side controls.

She switches from her podcast to music. This richer, more complete listening experience means she can lose herself in thought as the MRT carries her to meet her colleague. When she’s at work, her music helps her focus and boosts her productivity. The new BLUETOOTH® Audio SoC (System on Chip) senses and adjusts to music and noise at over 700 times per second. Edge-AI, DSEE ExtremeTM analyses music in real-time and recognizes instruments, music genres, and the individual elements of each of her favourite songs and restores the high-range sounds lost in compression.

No matter how far she travels, with her headphones on the office setting, she’ll get 30 hours of use and only needs to charge them once a week. When she needs a little top-up, the quick-charging function gives her up to 5 hours of wireless playback from 10 minutes of charging. She saves battery life effortlessly with the headphone’s proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors, which automatically stop the music when they’re off and resume playing when she puts them on again.


 A perfect (Bluetooth®) pairing  

After her rave reviews, her workmate purchased a pair of WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones. He’s feeling quite pleased with himself as he took advantage of the NW-A106HN Walkman product bundle. His Walkman has 3x the bitrate of standard Bluetooth® technology, so he enjoys a superior listening experience. His headphones are connected to both his cell and his Walkman. When her call comes in, his headphones sense where it’s coming from and connect to his phone automatically. He picks up and she lets him know she’ll be there with plenty of time to prepare for their big meeting. With a single tap, he can go back to his Walkman. Good luck with the presentation you two!

Get your WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones with same-day delivery, today until December 3rd, at the Sony Store Online. Treat yourself or someone your love and bundle them with a NW-A105 Walkman.

Find elegance and privacy with the WF-1000XM3 wireless, noise cancelling earbuds


Ivan’s on his way to study with friends and determined to stream the final episode of his favourite Netflix series from his phone.  He’s been waiting all week and knows he’ll be able to watch stress-free, as the Bluetooth® antenna on his WF-1000XM3 wireless, noise cancelling earbuds ensure wide coverage. The wireless connection syncs what he sees with what he hears: a rich, clear soundtrack courtesy of a powerful 6mm driver.

 He hops off the MRT, switches to music, and is fully aware of everything around him.

Adaptive Sound Control automatically detects what he’s doing and adjusts ambient sound to suit the situation. If he wants, he can customize his settings so they don’t let in any background noise while he’s listening to his playlist. When he’s not feelin’ a song, he simply double taps on the right earbud to skip to the next track.


Keep music in and chatter out. Or the other way around.

He recently took the MBTI personality type test and knows he’s a bit of an introvert.  The chatter of his classmates can be easily managed with the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1, which cancels out noise and allows him to concentrate fully.

When one of his friends waves him down, he places his finger over the earbud and the Quick Attention feature turns the volume right down and lets in ambient sound, so he can instantly chat without taking his headphones off. The dual microphones – one feed-forward and one feed-back – on the surface of the headphones, catch ambient sounds. When they need his full attention, he removes one earbud and the proximity sensor automatically pauses the audio on both sides. Once their chat is over, Ivan puts his earbud back in and his music automatically resumes. 

Enjoy them while you play and work from home

On his way back from uni, he uses the WF-1000XM3 wireless, noise cancelling earbuds to chat hands-free and set up a video game session with his friends. After his call, he wirelessly dictates a few notes and sets reminders for exam dates using Siri. (compatible with Google Assistant5, Amazon Alexa5, and Siri). He’s had them on since he left home 5 hours ago, and will keep them on when gaming, as their ergonomic fit means all-day (and all-night!) comfort.


A powerful charge of convenience

After a long day, Ivan slips his earbuds into their magnetic charging case and connects to power with a USB-C cable. On a full charge, they offer 6 hours of power and the case provides a further 3x charges to keep him going for 24 hours of noise-free listening. With noise cancelling off, it’s even longer – he can enjoy 8 hours of power on a full charge, with a further 3x charges from the charging case, for up to 32 hours of work and play. For the times he forgets to charge them before bed, a 10-minute case quick-charge gives him up to 90 minutes of power so he’ll never go without his beloved playlist, game, or TV show again.
