Sony's Upcoming High-End Wireless Headphones Leaked: Here's What It Features

International Business Times

Sony's WH-1000XM3 is one of the most highly acclaimed noise-cancelling headphones in the world right now. A leaked listing, however, reveals that the company is planning on releasing a new model that will be even better. According to a since-deleted Walmart listing (via Gizmodo), Sony is releasing the new WH-1000XM4 in the near future. The new audio device is set to succeed the popular WH-1000XM3 and can be expected to offer better features for the same cost. Here's what the listing, which was taken down, reveals about the device: While the WH-1000XM3 already offered best-in-class noise cancellation features, the listing indicates that the WH-1000XM4 will offer improved noise cancellation using additional on-board microphones.

Noise cancellation for cheap: These Sony Wireless Headphones are on sale for $70 off


You don't have to be an audiophile to know that headphones without noise cancellation are kind of pointless. What good does booming bass or sweet highs and lows do when it's competing with construction outside or a raging toddler two seats away? If you're craving some peace and quiet (but could do without Bose's $349 price tag), these noise-cancelling wireless headphones from Sony are a great choice -- and $70 off at Walmart. The Sony WHCH700N Wireless Headphones are optimal for quite literally any lifestyle. Artificial Intelligence Noise Cancellation scopes out your surroundings and adjusts the sounds for optimal ranges wherever you are -- because noise cancellation on an airplane isn't the same as noise cancellation when walking through Times Square, Sony's I Headphones Connect app also lets you adjust details manually, and even lets you simulate the sound of an outdoor stage, club, hall, or arena.

All the best wireless headphones for watching TV


A good session in front of the box has to be the all-time favourite escape from daily life -- not to mention a great way to decompress after a long day of work. It's not all good though, because sometimes your home life can get in the way of your time in front of the TV. If you love to watch TV, you need a pair of good headphones. You might live in a busy household where people are constantly coming in and out, or playing loudly around you, or are just working on their own activities and hobbies. Simply put, your family or housemates might annoy the hell out of you when you're trying to get stuck into your latest Netflix obsession.

B&W launches its first wireless, noise-cancelling headphones


British hi-fi brand Bowers & Wilkins launched its first wireless headphones, the P5 Wireless, in 2015, and followed up with the larger and more luxurious P7 Wireless. Now, B&W has remedied this with the PX, the company's first pair of wireless, noise-cancelling headphones. SEE ALSO: Bose takes on Apple AirPods with'true wireless' headphones Design-wise, the B&W PX most closely resemble the company's P7 Wireless over-the-ear headphones, and indeed, they seem to have replaced that model, which isn't listed on B&W's website anymore. However, they are far from a simple upgrade to the P7. First, B&W says the PX's angled drive units are "derived" from the company's flagship headphones, the P9 Signature, whose sound is a couple notches above the P7 (and most other closed, circumaural headphones I've heard).
