Sony has announced the new limited edition WH-1000XM4 Silent White which coincide with the 75th anniversary of Sony in May 2021. The new white colour has been developed to embody the concept of silence and serenity and a limited quantity of the WH-1000XM4 Silent White will be distributed across Asia Pacific from May 2021.
The WH-1000XM4 Silent White includes a pearlescent finish to the topcoat of the headphones to create a sense of depth and a luxurious touch. With an additional coat of paint than the standard black and silver colours, the WH-1000XM4 Silent White headphones are even more stain-resistant and retain the high-quality white colour. Plus, all accessories come in the same white colour so your carrying case and cables seamlessly match the serene white of the headphones.
The new WH-1000XM4 Silent White headphones will still deliver the same Sony’s best ever noise cancelling performance, reducing high and mid frequency sounds. This is possible thanks to the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 with Dual Noise Sensor Technology which features a new algorithm, plus a new Bluetooth audio System on Chip that adapts to noise, music and acoustic characteristics in real time. Using Edge-AI, DSEE Extreme more accurately rebuilds audio lost during digital compression for a full fidelity experience by analysing music in real time to create a richer, more complete listening experience.
WH-1000XM4 Silent White features ‘Speak-to-Chat’ which automatically pause your music when you start speaking and adaptive playback thanks to proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors that detect whether your headphones are being worn or not. It also features Adaptive Sound Control which senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience.
Multipoint Connection is also available on the WH-1000XM4 and allows you to connect your headphones to two Bluetooth devices at the same time. In addition, the headphones are NFC compatible, offer up to 30 hours battery life and are optimised for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
The WH-1000XM4 Silent White limited-edition model will be available in Malaysia from May 2021 at Sony Store KLCC and The Curve, and Sony Store Online with limited quantity only. Recommended retail price is at RM1,799.
