Sony WF-1000XM4 leak in images alongside expected release date

Michail, 10 May 2021

Sony has been producing some of the best noise canceling headphones for the past several years and now we get a series of actual product images for the upcoming WF-1000XM4 in-ear earphones.

Uncovered by The Walkman Blog, the upcoming XM4s show a more compact and round design compared to their predecessors. We can see rubber tips as well as openings for the microphones There’s speculation that Sony will also bring Hi-Res audio support.

We also have images of the charging case which shows a slimmer profile than the outgoing XM3 case. The bottom shows a 5V/140mA charging output rating which is slightly above the WF-1000XM3’s 5V/120mA rating and should translate to faster charging speeds.

A separate leaked image also shows the alleged XM4s will bring wireless charging. The image comes from the setting menu on the Xperia 1 III which details an identical looking charging case used for wireless charging.

The accompanying FCC certification also mentions a June 9 availability date which details the short term confidentiality. This means the actual Sony WF-1000XM4 should be announced officially soon after that date.

Y can’t they make them sweatproof

Wired connections are slowly began to be replaced by TWS because of less hassle. And because the market is saturated by TWS and BT Headphones. Only a handful would get a wired ones. Especially if that brand is a FiiO iRC-MMCX lightning cable.

Funny you mention that. They actually have MMCX to lightning cables you could replace with to use them. I believe Shure makes one.
