The MDR-1000X started it all in 2016, followed a year later by the WH-1000XM2, and then the XM3 in August 2017. Now, the highly anticipated XM4 noise-canceling headphones have been announced.

Until we tried on a pair of the original 1000X headphones at IFA 2016, we had thought that Bose was going to rule the noise-canceling roost for a long time to come. Sony's over-ears impressively removed the background hustle and bustle from the show floor and allowed us to completely focus on the sample music being offered. The technology has gone from strength to strength with each successive generation, with us noting after taking the XM3s for a proper workout that "it's the noise canceling capabilities that really sell these headphones, setting a new bar for other headphone manufacturers to strive for."
