Listen In Silence With The Benchmark For Active Noise Cancellation

Cup style More information
Open-back headphone designs are often higher-performance but have poor noise isolation and leak sound. Closed-back designs provide better noise isolation and leak less sound.


Wearing style More information
Over-ear headphones sit over your ear and surround your ear with a ring of padding. On-ear headphones are padded but rest on top of your ear. In-ear monitors are worn inside your ear canal.


Driver type More information
Speakers and headphones use a device called a 'driver' to create sound. Different types of drivers have different strengths and weaknesses, but can all produce great sound. Common varieties include dynamic, planar magnetic, and electrostatic.


Connectivity More information
Connectivity refers to the method in which the headphones connect to the audio source. Headphones can be either wired or wireless.


Portability More information
DACs and amplifiers can either be carried around or meant for static desktop use

Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Headphones: A Revolution in Listening Experience

Unmatched Noise Cancellation for Ultimate Focus

The Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones set a new standard in noise cancellation technology. With two powerful processors managing eight sophisticated microphones, these headphones offer unparalleled noise cancellation. They adeptly filter out a broad range of high and mid-frequency sounds, including airplane noise and human voices, thanks to Sony's innovative Auto NC Optimizer. This feature continuously adapts to your surroundings and wearing conditions, ensuring the most effective noise cancellation in any environment.

Advanced Multi Noise Sensor Technology

Sony's biggest leap in noise canceling technology is embodied in the WH-1000XM5. The eight-microphone system captures ambient sound with exceptional accuracy, significantly reducing high-frequency noise. The Auto NC Optimizer further refines this capability, dynamically adjusting to external factors, such as atmospheric pressure, to provide an optimized listening experience.

Pioneering Noise Processing

The synergy of Sony's Integrated Processor V1 and the HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1 takes noise cancelation to an unprecedented level. This combination precisely controls the eight microphones, delivering a noise-canceling quality that's simply unmatched, making the WH-1000XM5 the gold standard in noise cancellation.

Revolutionary Driver Design for Pristine Sound

Sony's newly engineered 30mm driver, featuring a soft TPU edge, excels in noise cancelation, especially in lower frequencies. The carbon fiber composite material contributes to a lightweight design, while the high rigidity dome enhances sound clarity, particularly in the higher frequency ranges, allowing you to immerse yourself in music without external disturbances.

Exquisite Sound Quality

The WH-1000XM5 headphones boast a light and rigid driver unit that enhances high-frequency sensitivity, resulting in a more natural and authentic sound. Sony's unique technologies include a gold-containing lead-free solder for better conductivity, a Fine Sound Resistor for balanced power distribution, and optimized circuitry that enhances the signal-to-noise ratio, ensuring crystal-clear audio.

Superior Wireless High-Resolution Audio

Supporting both High-Resolution Audio and High-Resolution Audio Wireless, the WH-1000XM5 utilizes LDAC technology, transmitting substantially more data than standard Bluetooth audio. This results in an exceptionally high-quality listening experience that rivals wired high-resolution audio systems.

Real-time Restoration of Compressed Music

The WH-1000XM5 employs Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) with DSEE Extreme™ to upscale compressed digital music files in real-time. It dynamically recognizes various musical elements, restoring high-range sounds lost in compression, thereby enriching the listening experience.

Crystal Clear Hands-Free Calling

Sony's Precise Voice Pickup Technology, coupled with advanced audio signal processing, ensures that your voice is heard clearly during calls, even in noisy environments. Developed through AI machine learning with over 500 million voice samples, this technology adeptly suppresses ambient noise, focusing solely on your voice for crystal-clear communication.

Innovative Features for Modern Convenience

The WH-1000XM5 headphones are brimming with features for today's fast-paced lifestyle. Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses your music and allows ambient sound when you start a conversation, resuming playback once you're done. The headphones also detect when they are worn, pausing and resuming music playback accordingly. Voice control is made easy with Google Assistant and Alexa, allowing you to access a myriad of functions hands-free. Multipoint Connection lets you seamlessly switch between devices, enhancing user convenience.

Enhanced Comfort and Practical Design

Crafted for all-day comfort, the WH-1000XM5 features a lightweight design with newly developed soft-fit leather, ensuring a snug fit with minimal ear pressure. The sophisticated design elements, like the stepless slider and silent joints, further enhance the wearing experience.

Long Battery Life and Rapid Charging

The headphones boast an impressive 30-hour battery life, perfect for extended listening sessions. In cases of low battery, a quick 3-minute charge provides an additional 3 hours of playback, ensuring uninterrupted listening even on the go.

Environmentally Conscious and User-Friendly

Sony demonstrates its commitment to the environment with the WH-1000XM5. The packaging is designed with low toxicity principles and is largely made from recycled and sustainable materials. The headphones themselves incorporate recycled plastic from automobile parts, aligning with Sony's goal of a zero environmental footprint.

The WH-1000XM5 - A Symphony of Technology and Design

The Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones represent a harmonious blend of advanced noise-canceling technology, exceptional sound quality, user-centric features, and environmental responsibility. They are not just headphones; they are an experience, setting a new benchmark in personal audio technology.
