Sony’s upcoming WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones have been in the news for a while, thanks to numerous leaks and rumors. But now, Walmart has listed the Sony cans prior to their official launch, revealing everything about the specs, feature and the $348 asking price.
Not much has changed when it comes to design and core features, but there are a few new tricks that buyers will appreciate. The first one is multipoint connection, which means the Sony WH-1000XM4 can be paired with two devices at once. This will let users switch audio playback between either of them without going through the ordeal of disconnecting from one device and pairing with another.
Sony’s WH-1000XM4 headphones will also bring a new technology called DSEE Extreme that will upscale compressed files to restore high-range sound. Another new feature is Adaptive Sound Control, and it will automatically adjust the ambient sound based on the surroundings. Users can set custom profiles for locations like a library or a cafe to trigger the appropriate ambient sound mode.
