    Can you use Sony WH-1000XM4 wired?
    teresa.kling
    9 months ago
    Yes, Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones can be used with a wire, but the headphones are designed to be used wirelessly. A 1.2m audio cable is supplied in the box so that you can plug it into the right ear cup's 3.5mm headphone jack and into your device's 3.5mm output socket.
