The Sony WF-1000XM4 ANC earbuds are the latest competition for the Apple AirPods Pro, and I've been looking for a reason to switch for a while now. I think this might be it.

      No true wireless are good for gaming. At least not as good as overear headphones. But if you really want some for gaming you should look out for big latency for headphones in reviews. But I think the Sony should be quite good for it because they don’t have latency issues and there battery life is good enough that you don’t have To stop every few hours and there sound is good enough to listen for footsteps

    My honest opinion -
    I bought the silver ones (although they're far from silver, they're Tan). I differ from every video I've seen in most people say they're uncomfortable for long periods. I think they're uncomfortable at first insertion each time but I quickly forget they're in. They sound incredible and the noise canceling is top notch. The touch spot is horrible and I always have to keep trying and they collect dirt like crazy. It's as if the material sucks the dirt from your fingers, so bad in fact that I'm tempted to cover the sensitive areas and spray paint them with a clear coat. By far the best ear buds I own for noise canceling and incredible sound but also the worst on touch, app and dirt collection. I cleaned them today with isopropyl alcohol since soapy water wasn't enough and was at least happy to see the paint didn't come off. My samsung+ buds are in for repair and I will go back to them for my daily work buds and only use the sony's for the gym. Incredible product but the cons are horrible.

    They should stop misinforming people about these buds. I got a pair and I'm returning them. They have a serious bug, which cannot be fixed [and customer support is calling it a feature] that makes those impossible to make or receive a call in any moderately loud environment. Please google it and you'll see for yourself.
    The bus amplify the sounds around you blast it to your ear when you receive or make a call which makes them impossible and unbearable in loud environment. You cannot change that feature and it's also in my Sony M4 as well.
    If you plan to go outside and use sonny's headphone to answer calls. Forget about it!
    They are only good for music.
    I should've stayed with Bose

    We are at the awkward stage where these are more expensive than the Sennheiser MTW 2's. Currently they are on sale for $250 and $220 for the Black and White models respectively while the Sonys are at the normal price of $280! I'm so torn on what to get because using earbuds independently was a must have for me, but that was also because my old AirPods didn't have the battery to last me on one earbud through a whole work day with just charging on my 15 minute breaks. I would have to swap earbuds through the day, but when one pooped out I was screwed. My main priorities are sound quality and being able to use only 1 bud for an 8 hour work day with only 2-3 15 minute charging intervals a day. If anyone has tried out one, or both of these earbuds, and uses them for a similar situation I would love to hear you feedback. The quality of the ANC is also important because I need to be able to easily talk to people, and hear a radio while using them.

    Anyone who wants ANC but can't handle that pressure feeling Sony always gives you, try the Galaxy Buds Pro. The ANC is not that far behind, and they do NOT cause that pressure feeling at all. I've tried almost 2 dozen ANC headphones, both regular and earbuds, trying to find something that didn't make me dizzy, and the Buds Pro are the first ones I could use. I wish I could use these XM4's :(
