Released 2 years ago, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones still offer one of the best active noise reductions on the market today. If the promotions on this product are rare or unimportant, this is not the case during these French Days since Fnac offers a double reduction: the price of the helmet thus goes from 380 euros to only 262 euros.
Sony’s WH-1000XM5 headphones could well be presented on May 12. But in the meantime, its previous version, the 1000XM4, still remains a safe bet today, largely thanks to its active noise reduction, which is very high on the podium of all those offered on the market. The last day of the French Days could well be the perfect time to finally get your hands on it since this wireless headset is benefiting from not one, but two promotions.
The strengths of the Sony WH-1000XM4
- Excellent active noise reduction
- A headset with multipoint Bluetooth
- A very comfortable autonomy
Launched at 380 euros, before being most often offered around 329 euros, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones are currently available at 262 euros at Fnac thanks to a promotion and a reduction of 37 euros obtained by adding the product to the basket until tonight 11:59 p.m..

Active noise reduction that always does its job
Here is the main advantage of these Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones: its active noise reduction, which is still one of the best on the market today. It must be said that the Japanese brand has mastered this technology for several years, which filters and erases surrounding noise. And for his WH-1000XM4, he even improved it. First, an adaptive sound control will be available and will take care of setting the headphones so that they automatically activate more or less effective noise reduction depending on the context. But above all, you will be able to have access to 20 levels of ANC management, to be selected on the Sony Headphones Connect application. Besides, if you want to converse with someone, a voice focus option will make it easier for you. Other features are also available, such as the “Speak-to-Chat” mode which mutes the noise reduction automatically and lowers the music when you chat with someone.
The other major advantage of this XM4 is its support for multipoint Bluetooth, which allows you to connect up to two devices simultaneously and switch between the two without having to make new settings or disconnect one of them. devices. Attention, all the same: this mode will not be compatible with the LDAC Bluetooth codec, but only with the SBC and AAC.
Sound quality as fine-tuned
In terms of audio, the headset embeds the same 40mm transducers that already fitted the XM3. As we noted during our test, the 1000XM4 delivers a particularly warm, rich and detailed sound, with the mids and lows being emphasized to offer an all-encompassing rendering. To launch a particular song, you can also request Google Assistant, Alexa or Siri. These assistants will also be used to perform all kinds of voice requests. On the autonomy side, the XM4 also offers a very comfortable autonomy, since Sony announces up to 38 hours of use without noise reduction, and 30 hours with this option activated. During our test, we were able to last 28h30 with the noise reduction permanently activated. Regarding charging, it will take place quickly via USB-C. You can thus gain 5 hours of listening time in just 10 minutes of charging.
Finally, and since this is an equally important criterion to take into account, be aware that while the headset essentially uses the same sober and minimalist design that was already found on the previous model, its circum-aural format promises excellent comfort over time, since the earpads surround the ears without simply resting on them, as supra-aural headphones do. Especially since this format also allows you to benefit from good passive insulation, which is essential to enhance the effectiveness of active noise reduction.
