With that fancy noise cancelling tech, you’ll get eight hours of battery life and 24-hours overall via the bundled charging case, which is also smaller than previous generation’s.

Our reviewer loved the Sony WF-1000XM4 true wireless earphones and praised the impressively rich sound, excellent noise cancellation, compact design, IPX4 waterproof rating and comprehensive feature set.

He concluded: “Sony find more improvements with their premium true wireless in the WF-1000XM4. It’s better in terms of and comfort; the feature set is extensive, the noise cancellation is impressive, and they sound fantastic.”

On the negative side, we did feel Bose does noise cancellation slightly better, and the call quality can suffer in noisy areas. However, that doesn’t detract from how great this buds are. There’s also LDAC support for higher-quality audio files transmitted wirelessly.

The XM4 have been around for a couple of years now and there might be a reason for such a deep price cut. Sony is rumoured to be launching the WF-1000XM5 earphones in short order.

In some ways it’s the best time to buy the XM4, but until we know what Sony has in store for the next generation, it might be worth waiting for the XM5.
