Sony WH-1000XM4 review: Superior over-ear headphones with ANC

The predecessor model WH-1000XM3 (our review) already turned into a real reference headphone with active noise cancellation (ANC). Meanwhile, the Sony WH-1000XM4 is the updated successor, which is supposed to filter out background noise even more effectively and offers some exciting innovations. Our test clarifies whether it can thus once again secure the top spot.
