Few other products come close to the 1000XM3 in terms of instant ubiquity. Not including the AirPods, Sony managed to give Bose a hard time at their own game and even won it with the now-legendary WH-1000XM3, a pair of headphones so competent and well-rounded, that it quickly became the go-to travel headphone for us here at WHF too! On a 15hr non-stop flight, that could be the difference between preserving your sanity or enduring your co-passengers’ snoring. After ruling the roost for a good three years, Sony has taken the wraps off its successor, the WH-1000XM4 and it’s a bit of an anticlimax at first. It looks almost exactly the same, has the same finish options and to most users, might even sound the same. But, expectations are high from this M4 version and Sony isn’t a brand to take success lightly.
