Sony WH-1000XM4 shows up on Walmart

Sony WH-1000XM4

Best Buy leaked the WH-1000XM4 at the end of April and in that same post I wrote that the WH-1000XM4 was in the Walmart inventory which was posted on Reddit. Well now, the upcoming headset has appeared on Walmart's website. The headset is priced at $348, but no date is provided for when it will be available. Thanks to Armin for sending in the information.

I am including a screenshot below of the site in case Walmart removes it.

Edit: looks like Walmart removed the page. Not a surprise.

While no photo is shown, in the about section all the juicy information about all the new features is posted. So let us begin.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Industry-leading digital noise cancellation
    Industry-leading noise cancellation technology means you hear every word, note, and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. Additional microphones also assist in isolating sound while talking on the phone, resulting in improved phone call quality and the reduction of even more high and mid frequency sounds.
  • Ambient sound control
    Adjust ambient sound with the Sony Headphones Connect app to cancel noise while still allowing through essential sounds, like transport announcements, when you're listening on the move.
  • Proprietary technology for premium sound
    LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth audio, allowing you to enjoy high-resolution audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection. Powered by DSEE Extreme technology, the 40mm drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms are Hi-Res Audio Compatible, reproducing a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.
  • Real-time restoration of all your compressed files
    Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) co-developed with Sony Music Entertainment, DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
  • All-day power with quick charging
    The WH-1000XM4 headphones are made to last all day and then some, whether you're focused on your work or flying around the globe. Up to 30 hours of battery life on a single charge keeps you listening instead of charging. Low on battery? No problem - 10 minutes of charge time gives you an amazing up to 5 hours of playback.
  • Touch control
    Change the track, turn the volume up or down, activate your phone's voice assistant, and take or make calls by tapping or swiping the panel with your fingertip.
  • Clear hands-free calling
    Conversation flows freely with easy, hands-free calling. Leave your phone where it is, just speak with a double tap. Thanks to Precise Voice Pickup Technology, which combines five built-in microphones with advanced audio signal processing, WH-1000XM4 delivers clearer voice quality to the other person on the phone. Precise voice pickup technology implemented in WH-1000XM4 optimally controls the five microphones built into the headphones and performs advanced audio signal processing to pick up your voice clearly and precisely for hands-free calls.
  • Multipoint connection
    For total convenience, the WH-1000XM4 headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. So, when a call comes in, your headphones know which device is ringing and will automatically connect to the right one. You'll also be able to quickly and smoothly switch your headphones to either of the two devices at the touch of a button.
  • Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to your location and behavior
    Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that can learn to recognize locations you frequently visit, such as your workplace or favorite cafe and tailor sound for the ideal listening experience. In addition, it automatically detects what you're up to - for example, walking, waiting, or traveling - then adjusts ambient sound settings to best suit the situation.
  • Wearing comfort
    WH-1000XM4 headphones blend sophisticated styling with exceptional comfort. Super-soft, pressure-relieving earpads in foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and increase ear/pad contact for a stable fit. And with a lighter- weight design, you'll barely notice you're wearing them.

That is all the information off the features part of the page, confirming DSEE extreme, multipoint connection, adaptive sound control depending on your location (GPS/WIFI). So with all the photos leaked by Best Buy and now Walmart leaking the full features, Sony might as well just announce these.

  1. I do hope that Sony improved the NC as well.

  2. FCC short-term confidentiality expired ending 1 June. Yet documents protected by that confidentiality are listed on FCC as to be released only on 12 June.

    1. yup they did, first time I see something like this happen. Waiting for the internal photos myself to see what has changed inside.

    2. Then XM4 is going to be introduced on 6/12?

    3. Technically it could even be 1 day before like the WF-1000XM3, it was announced and the FCC date was the date after.

  3. Will there be a white option?

    1. I only have been told of 2 colours, black and silver, like the current WH-1000XM3. Maybe a white model will be a limited edition? but I have not heard anything about it apart from that XDA leak.

  4. Then 6/11 could be the day. 6/11 happens to be the PS5 event day

    1. very possible they could be at the event but a press release could be a day earlier.
