(3 customer reviews)

Wireless Noise Canceling Overhead Headphones with Mic for Phone-Call and Alexa Voice Control to be used as a suitable product for misophonia sufferers.



It has been suggested that Sony WH1000XM4 headphones are usefulĀ  for misophonia sufferers because of the great noise canceling features!

Dual Noise Sensor technology, featuring two microphones on each earcup, captures ambient noise and passes the data to the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 then applies noise cancelling processing in real time to a range of environments which makes it a great product for misophonia sufferers.

These headphones feature additional microphones that assist in isolating sound while talking on the phone, resulting in improved phone call quality and the reduction of even more high and mid frequency sounds.

Up to 30-hour battery life with quick charging (10 min charge for 5 hours of playback)

Touch Sensor controls to pause/play/skip tracks, control volume, activate your voice assistant, and answer phone calls

Speak-to-chat technology automatically reduces volume during conversations

    These work for the most part for all sorts of triggers, but were unable to completely cut out the loud construction noises nearby when only on the noise canceling mode. I can only wear them a few hours a day, then they hurt my ears.

  2. These work great for me, they are able to cut out a large majority of the noises that trigger my misophonia, my ownly complaints are they get heavy feeling (cause neck aches) when worn for prolonged periods of time, and they tend to make my ears sweat, but for me the pros outweigh the cons. I did find that downloading the sony headphone app allowed me to customize the tones, like bass, and adjust other sound based things that could bother others. would recommend keeping the sony headphones app to manage the balances of things like bass. otheriwse i think they are very helpful for really bad misophonia days

    TLDR: For long term wear, the Sony’s were way too uncomfortable. I exchanged them for the Bose QC45. I think the noise cancelling of the Bose is slightly better and they’re much more comfortable for me to wear all day at work.
    FULL REVIEW: After doing a ton of research about budget and advanced tech, these are the headphones I decided to buy. They were in my running against the Bose QC45, but I picked these because based on said research they were supposed to be pretty much the same but the Sony’s come with a more useful app. What ended up happening is that I personally was disappointed in them, for my specific needs. I needed to be able to wear them for a consistent 9 hours while at work to block out consistent coughing, throat clearing, sniffling, and my creaky printer. It like, sort of dulled those things but didn’t really cancel them out. I know that any noise cancelling isn’t going to 100% get rid of sound, but I guess I was still expecting more than what it gave. I will say, the bonus functions of these headphones are really cool. They automatically change to aware/ambient mode if I stand up and move around or if I start talking to someone, and it has a lot of controls just from tapping or sliding your finger on the ear cup as opposed to buttons, but really, all those things are just a convenience and not a necessity when your main concern is getting through the work day with your misophonia minimally disturbed. They became sooo uncomfortable on my head and neck, to the point where it ached and I had to take pain medicine, and yes I did give it a few days worth of trial, not just one. If you’re like me, go for the Bose QC line instead for comfort alone. (I also read great things about the comfort and function of the Apple headphones but those are more expensive and you need to have lots of Apple products to make that worth while).
