We run into these stories too often but find it interesting that the Sony WH-1000XM4 worked acceptably in the beginning because it isn’t designed for speech recognition. You might consider consulting with a speech recognition expert before taking a speech recognition headset gamble. The WH-1000XM4 is excellent for music playback, noise filtering (speakers only) and cell phone use. The tiny microphone element is recessed near the speaker and doesn’t include any noise filtering.  If you simontaneously play music, it may slightly leak into the microphone. It is only adequate for VoIP and cell use. Note that KnowBrainer USB Microphones have all passed our speech recognition Microphone Tests.


We have never tested the Sony WH-1000XM4 but have extensively tested the Bose 700 and Sennheiser Momentum 3. Because we are official Sennheiser resellers we get a discount and hoping the Momentum 3 would work out but it didn't make the cut. The Big Haired Lady sports the Bose 700 about 12 hours a day because it features the best noise filtering of the 3 and works well for blocking old man voices  We use the Momentum 3 a few hours a day. We believe all 3 headsets utilize the same basic design. Our headsets are excellent for noise filtering (a big plus for both of us) and music but doesn't meet our speech recognition standards. Interestingly enough, we both wear these headsets while dictating through SpeechWare TableMikes

PS: According to the reviews, the Sony headset is very good for what it was designed for. If you work in a reasonably quiet environment, consider keeping the WH-1000XM4  and adding a TableMike to the mix. It worked out well for us but we also get a discount
