Sony’s WH-1000XM3, one of the most popular high-end noise-cancelling headphones on the market, attracts a large number of loyal users. But according to the latest revelations this week, the legendary successor, the WH-1000XM4, has been exposed by the FCC. Unfortunately, apart from the basic filing information, it is not possible to learn more details from it at this time. Because the company can ask the FCC to keep parts of the document confidential, such as product photos and user manuals.

It is reported that the WH-1000XM3 is registered with the FCC as the AK8WH 1000XM3, while the new version of the product ID is AK8WH 1000XM4. The first three generations have M1, M2, m3 name disresonance, so the fourth generation can be called M4.
While Sony has yet to provide any information on when the headset will be available, we expect to see the M3 successor in Las Vegas, given the arrival of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2020) early next month.
The current official price for the WH-1000XM3 is $349.99, but Amazon, Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target are all priced at less than $280 (1959 RMB).
