Sony seems to be keeping the same look and feel with the release of the new WH-1000XM4 headphones. According to newly leaked rumours, not a lot has changed visually from the WH-1000XM3, but things have taken a large step forward in the technology of the new pair.
A new feature likely coming to the WH-1000XM4 over-ear headphones is multi-device pairing. Users can pair two devices at a time, but doing so will get rid of the high-quality LDAC codec. Thankfully, while only two devices can connect at once, the headphones will store more than two pairings, meaning users can switch between other devices.
The WH-1000XM4 also comes in the form of a feature called Smart Talking. This feature will let the headphones detect voices and automatically turn on Ambient Sound Mode. Instead of turning the music off, pausing, or placing your hand over the cup to temporarily turn on passthrough, the feature would allow them to automatically hear the sound outside while people are talking and then get back to their music when the conversation ends. We are sure that many currant fans would love the extra features.
