Software updates tend to be dull, utilitarian affairs that aren’t normally worthy of fanfare. In the case of Sony’s WF-1000XM4 wireless in-ears though, we’ll make an exception.
Users who update their wireless buds to firmware version 2.0.0 will be able to connect their tried and trusty wireless headphones to two devices at the same time. The usefulness of this feature will vary depending on the person, but the ability to, for example, automatically take a phone call on your phone when you’re listening to Spotify on your PC, is a convenience that can’t be overstated.
Widely regarded to be some of the best wireless in-ears in the world right now, the WF-1000XM4 buds serve up the ultimate blend of truly impressive active noise cancellation, and superb, punchy-yet-balanced sound. Combined with Sony’s excellent app (which offers plenty of settings, tweaks and adjustments), the new update looks set to make a great pair of in-ears even better.
