Sony’s WH-1000XM3 ANC headphones have been on the market for some time and is inarguably the brand’s most popular audio accessory to date. That said, it appears that the 4th generation of Sony’s headphones may be around the corner, if a product listing on SIRIM is anything to go by.
The SIRIM certification was discovered by the eagle-eyed SIRIM database observer, Kevin Ng TK (@KevinNgTK), with the name of the product, WH-1000XM4, very boldly being listed at the very top of the database. Further, the certification was only grated approval within the last 24 hours, as evidenced by the approval date.
Of course, what’s even more interesting is that, despite the product already being listed in our nation’s product certification database, Sony itself hasn’t formally announced or acknowledged the existence of said product.

As these things usually go, information about the WH-1000XM4 is still scarce and limited. However, if we consider the fact that the product is already in the SIRIM database, it’s highly possible that Sony could be getting ready to launch the product this year. Hopefully, it’ll be sometime within the first half of the year.
