The WH-1000XM4 Silent White features an additional pearlescent finish to the topcoat of the headphones to create a sense of depth and a luxurious touch and allows the WH-1000XM4 Silent White headphones are even more stain-resistant while retaining the high-quality white colour. 

Like the black and silver WH-1000XM4 announced last year, the new WH-1000XM4 Silent White headphones deliver Sony’s best noise-cancelling performance, reducing high and mid-frequency sounds. The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 achieves this with Dual Noise Sensor Technology, which features a new algorithm, plus a new Bluetooth® audio System on Chip that adapts to noise, music, etc. 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.

The WH-1000XM4 Silent White also offers the same array of smart technologies to create a seamless, hands-free listening experience. For example, start speaking to automatically pause your music with the ‘Speak-to-Chat’ feature or enjoy adaptive playback thanks to a proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors that detect whether your headphones are being worn or not. Adaptive Sound Control is another smart function that senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience.

Like the other WH-1000XM4 colour variants, the new Silent White version blends sophisticated styling with exceptional comfort and light-weight design. Designed for those who are always on the go, the super-soft, pressure-relieving ear pads evenly distribute pressure and increase ear/pad contact for a stable fit.

Multipoint Connection is also available on the WH-1000XM4 and allows you to connect your headphones to two Bluetooth® devices simultaneously. Also, the headphones are NFC compatible, offer up to 30 hours of battery life and are optimised for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

All the bundled accessories will come in the same white colour, so the carrying case and cables will seamlessly match the serene white of the headphones.

The WH-1000XM4 Silent White limited-edition model will be available in Singapore exclusively at Sony Stores and Sony Stores Online from May 2021, priced at SGD 569, and available for pre-orders at SGD 499 from 21 April 2021.
