Fit

Sony WH-1000XM4

(1/1)

” I’m not some masochist who likes wearing over-ear headphones outside in the sweltering summer heat, but I’ve found the 1000XM4s to be plush and comfortable when worn for several hours around my apartment. Thanks to a new sensor inside the left ear cup, the headphones can now detect when you remove them from your ears and will pause audio until you put them back on.

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/2)

The Skullcandy Hesh Evo is a cool-looking pair of over-ear wireless headphones. For $99.99, you get a supremely comfortable fit and a bass-forward experience, but not much else. There’s no app, no active noise cancellation, no exercise-focused features

Sound Quality

Sony WH-1000XM4

(1/3)

(Sony has assured me that the 1000XM4s will perform reliably in cold weather after it was found that the M3s had significant touch sensor problems in winter.) And aside from a few tweaks Sony made to how it upscales music, the 1000XM4s sound just like their predecessors — a very good thing, trust me.

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/4)

They also have an excited, v-shaped sound profile that adds extra boom and thump to your mixes while brightening vocals and lead instruments. However, they lack an EQ or presets to help tweak their sound. They also struggle to isolate noise around you and leak some audio at high volumes.

Price Point

Sony WH-1000XM4

(1/1)

The price is a bit higher than I would have preferred, but didn’t find better choices at a cheaper price.On the other hand I can’t see myself ever spending this much on headphones. I know there are people who can and will, but to me there’s nothing in that product to justify the price.It also feels like any product Apple releases gets bonus review points (which I think is just confirmation bias), just because Apple made it

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/1)

These are not worth 100 dollars in the slightest these have nothing over my old 50 dollar ones other than slightly more bass.

Noise Cancellation

Sony WH-1000XM4

(1/3)

This feature-packed pair significantly reduces the noise of voices around you and can sound fantastic. But these headphones are pricey and require a good deal of setup.

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/4)

These feel like a solid set of noise canceling headphones. I cannot compare them to a high end brand like Beats, bc I don't own them. However the steel core seems solid and they adjust well and are compact when not using. They also do block noise out well so they can be used as ear muffs when the kids are fighting, an added bonus

Bluetooth Connectivity

Sony WH-1000XM4

(1/1)

For a lot of the ones I tested, it becomes an exercise in patience and frustration. There were even some that refused to pair with more than one device at a time at all, meaning that every time you switch a device, you have to do the whole pairing process again. And that wasn't 10 years ago, i tested this less than 2 years ago.And even the whole pairing process is annoying

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/1)

The Skullcandy Hesh Evo Wireless are Bluetooth-enabled headphones with a simple design. They offer around 44 hours of continuous playback time, which is a lot more than the Skullcandy Hesh 3 Wireless. They also have an excited, v-shaped sound profile that adds extra boom and thump to your mixes while brightening vocals and lead instruments. However, they lack an EQ or presets to help tweak their sound

Battery Life

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/1)

If I fall asleep with just the noise cancelling on and nothing playing it runs out in a day. Cheaper chinese brand NC headphones have definitely last longer, though the noise cancelling is definitely inferior. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I'm not an audiophile and I don't want to have to go into the $200+ range to get better battery life to go with better NC

Comfort

Sony WH-1000XM4

(1/2)

Sony has made some subtle design tweaks; they’re just the kind you can’t see. The head cushion at the top has been slimmed down; the ear pads now have 10 percent greater surface area for more contact with your head; and the curve of the headband has been “fine tuned.” I’m not some masochist who likes wearing over-ear headphones outside in the sweltering summer heat, but I’ve found the 1000XM4s to be plush and comfortable when worn for several hours around my apartment. Thanks to a new sensor inside the left ear cup, the headphones can now detect when you remove them from your ears and will pause audio until you put them back on

I just got these a month ago, and I love them. They are super comfortable to wear. I have used them on an airplane four times now and they work great. Quickly paired up to my phone, and cancelled out all the other noise, so I could watch a movie

Durability

Sony WH-1000XM4

(1/2)

I bought one pair of these headphones and they were defective out of the box. I returned them and the replacement was even WORSE than the first one. If two out of two of the same product are broken out-of-the-box, you have failed as a company. Sony doesn't even care either! My replacement order was shipped to me in a box just as slim as the box the headphones come in and only slightly longer with absolutely NO packing protection

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/1)

I went back and forth on which ones to get, knowing that my budget was on the lower end, I also needed something that was actually going to work and last. I actually snagged these while they were on sale, honestly I'm so happy I did. They cancel MOST background noises out. I still need to be able to hear somethings so I'm okay with it but when music is on, I can't hear anything else
