    Sony’s new WF-1000XM4 wireless earbuds have powerful noise cancellation that rivals over-ear headphones. They offer fantastic sound quality with support for the LDAC codec and beat competitors like the AirPods Pro and Bose QuietComfort Earbuds in battery life. Are these the new noise-canceling buds to get?

How important to you is codec support in a pair of earbuds?

A better codec is nice, but multipoint matters more because wireless earbuds are for convenience

Jabra 45h supports only sbc. But it sounds far good from other brands with codec aptx.

AirPods Pro mic sounds the best. But digging the reviews for sound quality and battery life. Would love replaceable batteries. I hate buying devices knowing they’ll end up in a landfill at some point. It’s a disturbing and haunting reality that is quickly catching up to us.

Oh boy... "LDAC does not give you more than 900 Kbps so no real CD quality..." Well, that sums up how ignorant reviewers are! Oh, and LDAC exists for a while by now. Not new. And it is equivalent to aptx HD or Apple HR audio. None of these codecs are new. In the end, the audio quality will be better if the internal digital pre-amp, internal DAC, amp analogue stage and drivers are good and work well together. Also, ear tips fit is paramount to audio quality in these wireless earbuds. Finally, ANC is a feature that does not increase audio quality. It may be very useful to many people in some settings, but it only degrades audio quality. As for battery life, well, its nice to have more, but how often do we really wear earbuds for more than 2-3 hours straight? Is that a major selling point? I would trade half the battery life for 20% less in the price... And the bugs are a really bad selling point!!
