Sony WF-1000XM4 are smaller, support LDAC and have better noise cancellation

08 June 2021
The buds have redesigned hardware and a better chipset to improve audio quality to and from the buds, as well as enable a few clever features.

I purchased 1 wf-1000mx4 and 1 wf-xb700 together. The wf-1000mx4 sounds distant and faded, while the wf-xb700 sounds amazing.

Are the meager 6mm drivers responsible? Further eq manipulation makes the sound worse. The mids are in the face, unbearably loud, the highs are balanced, but the lows! The bass hardly registers, and I wonder what all the appreciation for wf-1000xm4 sound quality is about! The EQ manipulation further worsens the sound quality. This is my worst purchase with Sony, 6mm drivers for a 280 dollar price?

Yes the noise cancellation may be amazing, but noise is cancelled so that one may enjoy music, which itself is not achievable. Not worth the price.

The RnD is done in Japan, only the manufacturing is done in China, as other mainstream tech companies do too.

My XM3 frequently falls off my ears even if I'm just having a nice slow paced walk. Not sure if it's too heavy or i have big sweaty earholes. Lol. Anyway, I'm still enjoying it. looking forward to have this XM4 when price drops around $200 xD. By this time, XM5 might have been released. Lmao...

WF is wrongly mentioned as WH so many times. Even during comparison it is swapped. Does the reviewer know which is WF and which is WH?
