If you are looking for big physical differences between the WH-1000XM3 and the WH-1000XM4, you will be a little disappointed. The main changes are under the hood which, in our opinion, is perfect; the headphones already have a really nice aesthetic, so why mess with that?

But it's the innards that make the difference. The XM4s have fast charging, giving you five hours of playtime from 10 minutes plugged in, and on-the-spot detection. 'ear.
Other cool new tricks include adaptive sound which has been enhanced and improved to cope with more situations and environments; the music stops when you speak, to avoid constantly having to click; and the headphones now have Bluetooth 5.0, instead of 4.2, soe which means multi-device connections are supported simultaneously.
On top of that, all the usual features are still here: support for Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant, 360 Reality Audio (for a virtual surround sound experience), over 30 hours reading, etc. . Image 1 of 5
