Sony Wf 1000xm4 Wireless Earbuds Price Singapore: This premium pair of true wireless headphones released on 9 June 2021, and brings several major upgrades over the previous Sony WF-1000XM3.
In addition to the new technology, the WF-1000XM4 shares some features with other existing Sony headphones. They have the same speak-to-chat feature as the WH-1000XM4. It recognizes when you’re speaking, and also pauses music and lets outside noises in, so you can have a conversation without taking the earbuds out of your ears.

Quick focus is on display on the WF-1000XM3 and it makes a comeback here too, allowing for extraneous sounds at the press and hold of touch-sensitive buttons. And, the adaptive voice control extends beyond Sony’s previous generation of headphones, too. The WF-1000XM4 learns to recognize where you are and what you’re doing and adjust the sound accordingly. The inclusion of a bone conduction sensor and beam-forming technology promises to make handsfree calls even better on the new headphones.
The biggest news, though, is that Sony has redesigned the earbuds from the ground up, opting for a rounder, more compact design than the WF-1000XM3’s ‘squashed pill’ look. They’re 10 percent smaller than their predecessors, and the carry case is 40 percent smaller. Despite these tiny dimensions, Sony has squeezed some extra battery life out of them. The Buds now last up to eight hours on a single charge (up from six for the WF-1000XM3). Add two more full charges to the case, and you should have 24 hours of use before you need a plug socket—which matches the Apple AirPods (2019).
Turn off the noise-canceling and jump eight hours to 12, and 16 hours out of the case to 24, bringing a total of 36 hours to juice out of the mains. A five-minute charge gives you an hour of run time, while the app will tell you when the carry case drops below 30 percent charge. You can also charge the carry case wirelessly from a compatible smartphone like the Sony Xperia 1 III by placing them on the back of the handset with the Battery Share feature enabled.

Alexa and Google Assistant voice assistants are supported as you’d expect, and they also play well with Google’s Fast Pair feature for fuss-free pairing with Android devices. More of a Microsoft fan? It also supports Swift Pair feature, for quick pairing across Windows 10 devices. And the price? £250 / $280 / AU$450. The Sony WF-1000XM4 is available for pre-order now and will be out of stock soon. That’s a bit more than the XM3s (which we’re told will continue), but if they live up to Sony’s billing, they could justify the price tag.
