2 units always paired

Twitter user JustPlayingHard (@justplayinghard) analyzed the SONY Headphones Connect APK, and discovered a new feature that SONY WH-1000XM4 may have. Since there are rumors that the WH-100XM4 is ready for shipment, it is expected to be installed in the product version.

The new features under development revealed by this analysis are as follows.

  • Always pairable with 2 units
  • Upgrade DSSE HX to DSSE Extreme
  • Setting change function linked with location information of Google Maps
  • If these new functions are installed, it will not be necessary to set and cancel pairing, which has been performed between multiple devices each time, and you can easily change the pairing destination between two registered devices. is.

    Also, upgrading from DSSE HX to DSSE Extreme will improve the sound quality when upscaling CD sound sources and compressed sound sources to high-resolution sound sources equivalent to “high resolution”.

    The noise canceling level setting seems to be possible to automatically set in conjunction with the location information of Google Maps. In addition, it seems that the WH-1000XM4 itself monitors the surrounding sound and automatically stops noise canceling when someone speaks to it, making it easier to hear the voice.

    Intensifying competition with other companies’ products

    AirPods Studio is rumored to appear in the over-ear headphones market in this price range, and BOSE, a pioneer in this market, releases a complete wireless earphone with active noise canceling function that Apple and SONY can compete with. The competition among these three companies is likely to intensify.
