Sony’s WH-1000XM4 active noise-cancelling headphones are widely considered one of the best in its class. Its combination of style, comfort and noise-cancelling performance have also helped become one of best-selling headphones on the market. Until now it has only been available in black or silver, but the company has just announced a new limited edition color it is calling Silent White.
As with the regular colors, the new Silent White WH-1000XMA headphones feature Sony’s proprietary QN1 noise-cancelling processor which has been described as being eerily effective at blocking out outside noise. They also feature Sony’s DSEE Extreme sound enhancement engine which automatically upscales compressed audio in real-time to restore high frequencies. Another feature setting them apart from most competitors is the inclusion of hi-res audio support over Bluetooth using Sony’s LDAC technology.
The new Sony WH-1000XM4 in Silent White is available for pre-order now for US$348 and will start shipping in June.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
