Sony has been producing some of the best noise canceling headphones for the past several years and now we get a series of actual product images for the upcoming WF-1000XM4 in-ear earphones.
Uncovered by The Walkman Blog, the upcoming XM4s show a more compact and round design compared to their predecessors. We can see rubber tips as well as openings for the microphones There’s speculation that Sony will also bring Hi-Res audio support.
Images of the Sony WF-1000XM4
We also have images of the charging case which shows a slimmer profile than the outgoing XM3 case. The bottom shows a 5V/140mA charging output rating which is slightly above the WF-1000XM3’s 5V/120mA rating and should translate to faster charging speeds.
