Back in June, we saw a listing for the XM4 headphones, which revealed they will feature minor updates to the already excellent WH-1000XM3s. The new additions will include AI real-time upscaling of compressed music files. The headphones were also spotted in Brazilian listing which revealed their design is visually indistinguishable to their predecessors.
Photos and the manual of the Sony WH-1000XM4, the successor to Sony’s excellent XM3 Bluetooth wireless headphones, just went up on Brazil’s Anatel (equivalent to the FCC).
