The wireless headphone market is constantly changing, so manufacturers like Sennheiser have to keep adapting or throwing in the towel. Obviously, this market continues to be largely dominated by Apple and its AirPods. Apple owes this dominance to the high technological quality of its products, but above all to their design. Today AirPods are more than just headphones, they are real fashion accessories.
Beyond the aesthetic aspect, the design of wireless headphones is important for user comfort. This idea is perfectly received by Samsung with its Galaxy Buds Pro, which presents itself as a real competitor to the AirPods Pro. Other manufacturers like Sony seem to have a harder time balancing quality and comfort. The WF-1000XM3 are still great wireless headphones, but their design holds back consumers who prefer more discreet products.
Sony could redesign the design of its wireless headphones
However, Sony appears to be aware of this problem and could come up with a solution. The website mydrivers.com just posted a picture with the caption “WF-1000XM4”. According to this information, it could be a leak that shows Sony’s upcoming wireless headphones. Anyway, the design of this product appealed to us. It seems that Sony has decided to follow in Samsung’s footsteps and come up with a more compact and rounded earbud that is much more discreet than the previous ones.
Obviously, this information should be taken with a grain of salt as Sony has in no way made this product official. However, the picture looks particularly real and gives us hope that Sony has finally made the decision to upgrade its wireless headphones. It is also impossible to determine from the technical sheet of this product whether or not these headphones contain active noise canceling, etc.
