Sony WH-1000XM4 price and availability in the Philippines

Right around how much we expected it to be

Published

Sony’s best just got better as the Sony WH-1000XM4 is now official and has come to the Philippines.

New to the headphones in its 4th iteration is Multiple device pairing. This has been one of this headphones’ weaknesses and it has finally been addressed. You can now connect the Sony WH-1000XM4 to two devices simultaneously.

When a call comes in, your headphones will know which device is ringing and connect to it automatically. You’ll also be able to quickly switch your headphones to either of the two devices in a single tap.

Sound of the WH-1000XM-line has always been stellar and the XM4 should be no different. The ever-reliable QN1 is still here for noise-cancellation but it’s now paired with a new Bluetooth Audio SoC. It can sense and adjust to music and noise at over 700 times per second.

It now also has Edge-AI, DSEE Extreme which more accurately rebuilds audio lost during digital compression for a full fidelity experience. The 360 Reality Audio feature is now also making its way to these headphones. It lets listeners enjoy a custom immersive musical field that is perfectly optimized for each individual user.

The WH-1000XM4 also supports Google’s helpful new Fast Pair feature that lets you easily locate where you left your WH-1000XM4 by ringing them.

Lastly, there’s Speak-to-chat. Previously, you had to cover one of the ear cups to disable the noise-cancelling for a short period. Now, you only have to speak and the headphones will recognize your voice, automatically stop your music and let in ambient sound so you can conduct a conversation without removing your headphones.

Pricing and availability 

The Sony WH-1000XM4 will retail for PhP 19,999 and is available in the Philippines starting August 14, 2020 in all Sony Centers and dealers nationwide.

OnePlus is building its own mechanical keyboard

To celebrate its 9th anniversary

Published

on

It’s OnePlus’s 9th anniversary. For almost the entirety of December, the smartphone brand is holding a plethora of events for its fans. Naturally, one of those events involves new products coming to OnePlus. Teased officially, the company has revealed what’s coming: a mechanical keyboard.

Besides smartphones, OnePlus also has a wider lineup of other devices like smartwatches and earbuds. That said, a mechanical keyboard is an all-new department for the company.

Based on the small landing page for the keyboard, OnePlus is creating the device with Keychron, a notable brand for the segment. Unfortunately, the page does not reveal much more about the keyboard. If anything, Keychron’s involvement confirms that the company means business.

As with most mechanical keyboards these days, users can customize the upcoming device’s keycaps. With that, another mystery is whether the brand will sell custom keycaps of their own, or users can buy their own.

Thankfully, interested users don’t have to wait long. OnePlus is scheduled to launch the new keyboard on December 15, right in the middle of its grand celebration for its 9th anniversary.

Since its inception, OnePlus has moved from flagship killer to selling flagships itself to now expanding beyond just simple flagships. Now, the brand is looking beyond.
