SONY’S 75th anniversary is coming up in May and to coincide with that occasion, the company has something special lined up – a limited edition version of the acclaimed WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones, in a Silent White finish. The colour apparently is to “reflect the concept of silence and serenity of the noise-cancelling headphones.”
“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,” Sony tell us.
As with the standard models, the “WH-1000XM4 Silent White headphones deliver Sony’s best ever noise-cancelling performance, reducing high and mid frequency sounds”.
“This is achieved by 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 ExtremeTM 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 features an array of smart technologies to create a seamless, hands-free listening experience. 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.
“Similar to the other WH-1000XM4 colour variants, the new Silent White version blends sophisticated styling with an exceptional comfort and lightweight design. The super-soft, pressure relieving earpads evenly distribute pressure and increase ear/pad contact for a stable fit.”
Multipoint connection is available, allowing the user to connect to two Bluetooth devices at the same time. The headphones are also 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 in a limited quantity only.
The recommended retail price is RM1,799.
