Sony is celebrating its 75th anniversary with a special limited edition version of its WH-1000XM4 wireless active noise cancellation headphone.

The company is calling this new model the WH-1000XM4 Silent White and it joins the existing black and silver colourways.

According to Sony, this new model features a "pearlescent finish" to the topcoat that resists fading and stains better.

Additionally, the WH-1000XM4 Silent White also comes with matching white accessories, so the carrying case, audio and charging cables, and airline adapter are all white.

In terms of features and specifications, this limited edition model is identical to the "regular" versions.

It has Sony's new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 which samples music and noise at over 700 times per second to better cancel out unwanted noise. There's also support for Bluetooth multipoint so it can connect two two devices simultaneously. 

It also has 40mm dynamic drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragms, support for DSEE Extreme technology, and a 360 Reality Audio mode.

It's also the winner of our Tech Awards 2021 Best Noise-cancelling Headphone award.
