Earlier this week we got our first look at Sony’s supposedly new WF-1000XM4 wireless earbuds. Now a new leak has a double chance because these new renderings look good.
Roland Quandt took to Twitter to share the seemingly final renders of the Sony WF-1000XM4. The pictures give us our best look at the design of the wireless earbuds yet and show their more compact size along with a pocket that slips easily into the pocket. Based on the renders, it looks like the wireless earbuds will be offered in two colors: black and off-white (or maybe sand?).
One thing people didn’t like about the Sony WF-1000XM3 was that it had a bulky profile. Thankfully, Sony seems to have fixed this on the new earbuds with a sleeker design that better matches the size of other high-end wireless earbuds on the market. The rounded aesthetic of the Sony WF-1000XM4 gives the wireless earbuds a more stealthy look and shouldn’t be as noticeable in someone else’s ear.
The leaked images also appear to show the pressure relief vent, charging pins, touch-sensitive outer case, and infrared sensor for in-ear detection. The latter feature allows the earbuds to pause the music when you take them off. A previous report also claimed that the WF-1000XM4 will offer Hi-Res audio support for 6 hours of LDAC playback on a single charge. Additionally, the upcoming wireless earbuds are expected to offer the usual features like active noise cancellation, ambient mode, and EQ control.
Given how many times we’ve seen the unannounced Sony WF-1000XM4 just this week, we’ll likely see an official announcement soon. As we previously reported, Sony is expected to launch the earbuds in June. So it won’t be long before we know how much they’ll cost at launch.
