Usually, overhead variants are way more expensive than their in-ear counterparts but now that gap has shrunk. The Sony WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling over-the-ear headphones are on sale at Best Buy, clocking at just $298.
That’s just $20 more than the recently launched in-ear model. I guess it boils down to personal preference but the WH-1000XM4 model features bigger drivers and better sound insulation thanks to the over-the-ear design.
There’s another big advantage the WH-1000XM4 has over the in-ear model - multipoint connection. Тhe WH-1000XM4 headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time.
You can check out our Sony WH-1000XM4 review for more details but in a nutshell - the noise-canceling is one of the best on the market, and the sound representation is very precise. DSEE Extreme is on board to make low-quality songs sound better, and so is the Chat-to-Speak feature.
Last but not least, big over-the-ear headphones have bigger batteries inside. You can get up to 30 hours of playtime on a single charge and Sony’s fast charge technology will give you another 5 hours after a quick 5-minute top-up.
