Now, the latest model, the WH-1000XM4, comes in a black finish. In case that’s a bit too boring for your liking, then you might be interested to learn that Sony has since announced a new limited edition colorway that they are calling “Silent White”. It looks like they are just regular white on the surface, but that’s not necessarily the case.
According to Sony’s description of the new color, “The WH-1000XM4 Silent White includes a pearlescent finish to the topcoat of the headphones to create a sense of depth and a luxurious touch. With an additional coat of paint than the standard black and silver colours, the WH-1000XM4 Silent White headphones are even more stain-resistant and retain the high-quality white colour. Plus, all accessories come in the same white colour so your carrying case and cables seamlessly match the serene white of the headphones.”
We’re going to chalk it up to marketing hyperbole, but if you want a new pair of headphones and you’ve been eyeing the WH-1000XM4, then this new white finish could be worth looking out for. Right now they are only available in Europe, but we imagine that they should eventually find their way to other markets.
