We saw crystal clear renderings and spied some details from early leaks. Now we have a complete look at the Sony WF-1000XM4 with its most important technical data.
WinFutureThe latest report gives us detailed information on what to expect from the buds. For starters, the German publication released numerous renderings showcasing the real wireless earbuds in matte silver or matte black with gold accents. A possible all-gold colorway is also mentioned, but it’s unclear whether it will make the cut. Nevertheless, the design of WinFuture is similar to what appeared in previous renderings.
Sony WF-1000XM4 specifications
Internally, the Sony WF-1000XM4 packs the ANC activated by the Sony V1 processor per leak. The chipset also supports LDAC and Hi-Res audio. Precise Voice Pickup technology may also be available to allow users to customize the Companion app settings using voice commands.
Another intrigue is recommended battery life. The WF-1000XM4 could be good for eight hours with the ANC on – two hours more than the originally claimed leaks. When the ANC is switched off, the running time should be 12 hours. The charging case can also hold up to two additional full charges. If the case dies, it can be refilled wirelessly via a Qi-compatible wireless charger or USB-C port.
After all, for fitness aficionados, the Buds will reportedly get an IPX4 rating. This should protect them from splashes, sweat, and light rain.
How much does it cost? Rumor has it that the Sony WF-1000XM4 will be available in Europe for 279.90 euros. Expect this price to vary between regions, but it will likely be more expensive than the still-laudable WF-1000XM3. At this price they would also be significantly above the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and the Apple AirPods Pro as well as in the range of the Bose QuietComfort.
There’s no word on a launch date yet, but don’t be surprised if they debut soon.
