Sony WH-1000XM4

Engadget Review

Sony has made the best even better. With a bunch of seemingly small changes, the company has further improved its already stellar headphones. The WH-1000XM4 sounds great and the custom ANC automatically adjusts if you choose to let it. You won’t find a more feature-packed set of headphones right now, and it’s unlikely you will until Sony updates these again.

The Sony WH-1000xM4 ups the ante in every way to challenge the Bose 700 for the title of best noise-cancelling headphones
