Sony confirmed it's hosting an audio-related launch event on August 6 where and it's highly likely we’ll see the debut of its WH-1000XM4 headphones. The keynote is scheduled to kick off at 3 PM UTC and Sony is boasting a #ListenWithSony slogan which confirms the product (or products) will be audio-oriented.
Back in June, we saw a listing for the XM4 headphones, which revealed they will feature minor updates to the already excellent WH-1000XM3s. The new additions will include AI real-time upscaling of compressed music files. The headphones were also spotted in Brazilian listing which revealed their design is visually indistinguishable to their predecessors.
