Picture the scene. Its summer, lockdowns are easing, and youre ready to venture back out into the world. Youre feeling brave after a year stuck inside, brave enough that youve picked out an all-white outfit. You read up on how to make the color work in the likes of Vogue and GQ, but suddenly, disaster strikes. You notice something. The Verges top rated wireless headphones! you exclaim to no-one in particular, theyre only available in black, blue, or this weird dork-ass beige?!
Its ok, dont fret. Sony is releasing a limited edition of the WH-1000XM4 headphones in all white. Better still, its real white, not that orthopedic brown Sonys being trying to pass off as silver all these years. Sony promises these Silent White headphones will be even more stain-resistant, which will hopefully help keep them looking pristine for at least a little while. Unfortunately theyre limited edition, and will only be available while stock lasts.
Internally these are the same as the excellent WH-1000XM4 headphones the company released last year. That means youre getting excellent audio quality, noise cancellation, and mic performance, and the ability to pair with two devices simultaneously.
The white headphones will be available in Europe from May for 430/400, but theres no sign of the color on Sonys US site as of this writing. Weve contacted the company to ask about US availability.
