High-performance dual-noise-sensor microphones

Two noise-sensing microphones per ear—one feed-forward and one feed-back—on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sounds of your surroundings, whether it’s in-flight noise, city traffic or office chatter.

A newly designed 6 mm driver unit featuring a 20% increase in magnet volume and the high-compliance diaphragm gives you improved performance in low frequencies. It also enhances noise cancelling by generating a high-precision cancellation signal to the low-frequency range.

Noise Isolation Earbud Tips

Newly developed Noise Isolation Earbud Tips feature a unique polyurethane foam material. Soft and elastic, it maximizes the surface contact area between the earbud tip and the ear canal, eliminating gaps to insulate sound and reduce noise. It also improves adhesion to the ear canal for a more stable fit, making the WF-1000XM4 headphones easy to wear.

 

Minimizing wind noise

Even on windy days you’ll stay totally immersed. Automatic Wind Noise Reduction mode detects when it’s windy and automatically suppresses it, for more effective noise cancelling.
