The Sony WH-1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Headphones have received rave reviews. If you haven’t gotten yourself a pair, but have been planning to do so, you may want to know Sony has revealed a new limited edition WH-1000XM4 Silent White.
Perhaps understanding the concern with products in white, Sony has added a pearlescent finish to the topcoat of the headphones that not only creates a sense of death and a luxurious touch, but it lends the audio cans more resistance to stain while retaining the high-quality white color.
On pictures, the Silent White does look really pretty. However, I am wary of its durability. I have had too many experiences with products in white that started to yellow over time. Hopefully, this extra coat does help to prevent the inevitable for most white plastics.
Anywho, the Limited Edition Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones in Silent White has all the features of the WH-1000XM4, including HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 with Dual Noise Sensor Technology, a new Bluetooth audio System on Chip, Edge-AI, DSEE Extreme, multipoint connection, NFC, support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, and up to 30 hours of battery life.
The Limited Edition Sony WH-1000XM4 Silent White will sell for €430/£400 when it becomes available this month (May), coinciding with the brand’s 75th anniversary. As noted with the pricing, it is only available in Europe and between May and August, or while stocks last.
