These don’t feature an extended stem out of the ear like AirPods or AirPods Pro, which makes them a bit more comfortable for extended use. And if you value battery life above all else, the WF-1000XM4 are the longest-lasting earbuds, with ANC on or off, that we’ve tested.
What you need to know:
The WF-1000XM4 earbuds are more expensive than both Galaxy Buds Pro and AirPods Pro, but for those looking for more control over how playback sounds, the custom EQ mix could make the price more digestible.

How they compare:
ANC on the XM4 zooms past the Echo Buds, Galaxy Buds Pro and AirPods Pro to deliver an experience that really lets you be alone with your thoughts and music. Compared to the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds — our pick for best noise-canceling earbuds — noise cancellation is a toss-up; the Bose buds create a better seal in-ear, while the Sony buds are better at blocking higher-frequency sounds. Sony kicks things up a notch with sound by offering better instrument separation on a track and stronger bass over other leading earbuds like AirPods Pro or the Bose QuietComfort. The XM4 shine with the longest battery life with ANC on or off (eight or 12 hours, respectively) against other earbuds we’ve tested.
