Coming with a comfortable fit, AI digital music upscaling, and a great built-in mic, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones are great for both dedicated music sessions and day-to-day use. If you have a slightly larger head, they may sit a little tight and you can’t easily charge them while listening, but these are minor downsides. 

They are a tad more expensive than the likes of the AirPods Pro 2, which are in-ear, but managed to top the list of iMore’s best noise-canceling headphones for a reason. They sound great, last a long time, and look even better — giving the newer WH-1000XM5 hot competition at this lower price. For most headphone users, you won’t get any better at this price point.

James is a staff writer and general Jack of all trades at iMore. With news, features, reviews, and guides under his belt, he has always liked Apple for its unique branding and distinctive style. Originally buying a Macbook for music and video production, he has since gone on to join the Apple ecosystem with as many devices as he can fit on his person. 


With a degree in Law and Media and being a little too young to move onto the next step of his law career, James started writing from his bedroom about games, movies, tech, and anything else he could think of. Within months, this turned into a fully-fledged career as a freelance journalist. Before joining iMore, he was a staff writer at Gfinity and saw himself published at sites like TechRadar, NME, and Eurogamer. 


As his extensive portfolio implies, James was predominantly a games journalist before joining iMore and brings with him a unique perspective on Apple itself. When not working, he is trying to catch up with the movies and albums of the year, as well as finally finishing the Yakuza series. If you like Midwest emo music or pretentious indie games that will make you cry, he’ll talk your ear off.
