In our Sony WH-1000XM4 review, we applauded Sony for improving the design of its flagship headphones by adding a rubberized finish that gives you a "more durable and premium feel." Sony also added a motion sensor in the left ear cup for smart controls that automatically pause or resume playback when you take the headphones off or put them back on. 

When it comes to noise-cancelling headphones, Sony remains the king. The headphones feature an array of dual feedforward mics, Sony's Dual Noise Sensor technology, and Sony's HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1 chip. Combined, they find the ambient sounds around you and erase them faster than you can hit the delete key. There's no wonder why they're still the best noise cancelling headphones.

The 1000xM4 also offer top-level sound quality, so the tunes you're hearing sound perfect (now that you've gotten the peace of mind to focus on them). Our review commends their mix of "plenty of boom and detail," as these headphones don't just get loud, they let you hear every single note.
