Sony’s newest earphones with ANC have just hit the market, and boy do they look impressive. These new truly wireless earphones are smaller and compact, and they pack a premium look. The best part is that the charging case is also on the smaller side. But at the end of the day, the Sony WF-1000XM4 is not invincible, and careless handling can leave unpleasant marks and scratches on the surface of the charging case.
Protective case saves your charging case from getting scracthes and ensures that it remains in a pristine condition.
So if you are in the market looking for protective covers for the Sony WF-1000XM4, you have come to the right place. But before that,
- Sony SRS-XB13 vs Sony SRS-XB12: Should you upgrade?
- Here are the best USB‑C chargers with multiple ports
1. Surbuid Silicone Case with Keychain
If you do not want to spend a huge amount on a case, for your Sony WF-1000XM4, then the one by Surbuid makes for a good buy. It’s a transparent case which means the original color of your earphones will shine through completely. It’s made from silicone and will shield the carry case from scratches, scuff marks, and the likes.
There is a small loop at the side, and you can wind your keychain or a metal carabiner. Naturally, this makes it better to hang your earphone inside your backpack so that they do not get lost easily. Or, if you have an Apple AirTag, you can loop them with these buds so that they are easier to find.
Transparent cases also have their share of cons as well. For instance, some of the affordable ones are prone to yellowing over time. Thankfully, the low price tag means you can easily switch over to a new one.
2. Lamshaw Transparent Case
Another transparent case that you can give a shot is the one by Lamshaw. This one has almost similar appearances to the one above. It wraps around the carry case and keeps it safe from harm’s way. Like the one above, you will find a similar loop for a carabiner or a keychain to clip it into backpacks or trouser loops. Again, it’s a TPU case, and it should not be too difficult to install.
While transparent cases let you keep the case scratch-free, they do not provide as much protection as armored cases from bumps against door frames or tables corners.
However, if you are a careful user, this light case should serve you just fine.
3. Enjovdery Silicone Case Cover
The Enjovdery brings a colorful look to the table. These non-transparent cases protect the carry case from minor scratches and help in absorbing the impacts of minor drops and falls. At the same time, the soft outer layer helps in a better grip and keeps dust from settling. However, you may need to clean it with a soft wet cloth from time to time.
It shares quite a few common traits with the cases above, including the nifty holder for a carabiner.
The maker claims that the case is flexible, which makes it easy to slip on.
4. Rvtkak Protective Case
If you are looking to add a little style to your WF-1000XM4 earphones, the Rvtkak case makes for a good pick. This case will bathe your buds in a bright red color. Apart from making it stand out, this case will also ensure keep it protected from the elements of nature. At the same time, the light material ensures that you will charge the case wirelessly.
The case has a hole for looping a lanyard or a metal keychain. It’s available in five colors—Black, White, Blue, Green, and Red.
5. Werjia Hard Carrying Case
The WERJIA case is strictly not an everyday case. However, if you are apprehensive about the buds getting damaged during long travels, then the hard carrying case is a good pick. It’s a simple case and keeps the charging case away from harm’s way. At the same time, a simple elastic band keeps the case from moving around.
It zips up to keep the buds safe and secure. It’s a compact case. However, it doesn’t have any mesh pockets for carrying the charging cable or the ear tips.
Hard carrying cases are not practical for day-to-day usage. After all, you wouldn’t want to open the zip, take out the case, and then take out your buds regularly. But if you are traveling, hard cases such as these may help you keep your buds safe and sound.
Wrap Them Up
Protective cases and covers invite many polarising opinions since the charging cases are strong enough to withstand regular wear and tear. However, if you do not want to take the risk, it’s better to wrap them up in a protective case.
Sony WF-1000XM4 doesn’t have many cases with immediate delivery options. Hopefully, things will change in the future with named makers joining the line. Thankfully, most of these cases are affordable, which means you can easily swap them out for a new case as soon as they hit the market.
