Walmart leaks the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones and confirms its new features

We already know that Sony is prepping up to launch the successor to its highly acclaimed WH-1000XM3 Bluetooth headphones. The upcoming headphones have previously been spotted in leaked live images shared by XDA’s Mishaal Rahman, and we’ve also got a good look at all the new features that Sony will be introducing with the headphones thanks to an APK teardown of the Sony Headphones Connect app. While the company is yet to announce a launch date for the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones, Walmart has now listed the headphones on its website.

According to a recent report from TheWalkmanBlog, the upcoming Sony WH-1000XM4 has been listed on Walmart’s website at a price of $348. Even though the listing doesn’t include an image of the headphones, the about section lists down all of its features, thereby confirming some of the information we gathered in our APK teardown. Here are all the features and benefits mentioned in the Walmart listing:

What the Walmart listing doesn’t mention, however, is the new Smart Talking/Speak-to-chat feature that we spotted in our APK teardown. The feature is expected to allow the Sony WH-1000XM4 to automatically enable ambient sound when voice is detected. So if you’re trying to talk to someone, the headphones will let ambient sound come through and let you continue your conversation without any efforts on your part. After a user-defined time (Fast, Mid, Slow, or None), noise cancellation will return back to the original setting. The headphones will also let you adjust the voice detection sensitivity to prevent it from activating too often.

Sony is yet to reveal any official information about the upcoming WH-1000XM4 headphones. However, since the headphones have now appeared on Walmart, we expect the company to make them official in the coming days. It’s also worth noting that Walmart has still not taken down the listing and the headphones are currently listed as ‘Out of Stock’.
