Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless, noise-canceling headphones. This new model brings a whole new immersive, distraction-free sound experience to its users.
The WH-1000XM5 headphones were created with Sony’s most remarkable noise-canceling technology yet, with two processors controlling eight microphones that dramatically reduce frequency, especially mid-to high-frequency noise, and automatically optimizes noise cancelation depending on the environment. This is along with various consumer variables including head size, whether the listener is wearing glasses, or if hair is covering their ears. Whether users are trying to zone into work in a busy cafe or aiming to relax during a hectic morning commute, the WH-1000XM5 headphones create an immersive listening environment.
With the help of the Integrated Processor V1, the WH-1000XM5 headphones unlock the full potential of Sony’s HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1, while the specially designed 30mm driver unit enhances noise canceling. These features improve sound clarity and bass reproduction, creating incomparable noise cancelation that allows the listener to completely switch off the world around them whether they’re escaping from plane noise or sitting on a train on their way home from work.
The 30mm driver unit with a light and rigid dome use carbon fiber composite material that improves high-frequency sensitivity for more natural sound quality.
Users can now enjoy premium, High-Resolution Audio, with and without the wires, thanks to Sony’s industry-adopted audio coding technology, LDAC3. All music will be restored back to high range sound with DSEE Extreme™that upscales digital music files in real-time, allowing every user to appreciate each detail the artist intended into their favorite tracks.
Because these new headphones are 360 Reality Audio Certified headphones, they can be enjoyed with a custom immersive music experience.
No location is off limits for taking calls with the WH-1000XM5 headphones. Sony’s precise Voice Pickup technology uses four beamforming microphones and an AI-based noise reduction structure to isolate the user’s voice with perfect precision, while a newly developed wind noise reduction structure minimizes wind noise during calls. Now, a busy street or a noisy work environment can be the perfect place for a call with family, friends, or colleagues.
Sony understands that users are moving through the world at a fast pace, so when they finish a busy workday and arrive at the calmness of their own home, the WH-1000XM5 headphones make this transition seamless using Adaptive Sound Control. This automatically tailors sound to suit their specific situation, recognizing their most frequented locations and adjusting the ambient sound settings accordingly.
Additionally, the WH-1000XM5 headphones integrate With Quick Access, users can configure the headphones to resume Spotify music playback with two or three taps – no need to touch their smartphone.
By using Speak-to-Chat, users can stop for a quick conversation and their headphones will automatically stop the music and let in ambient sound. Once the chat is over, the music plays on. With the help of instant pause, their personal soundtrack will stop playing as soon as they take the headphones off.
The WH-1000XM5 headphones are also Google Assistant and Alexa compatible, helping with everyday tasks for hands-free help on the go.
Staying connected has never been easier, as the WH-1000XM5 headphones use multipoint connection with Bluetooth® technology, simplifying the pairing process with two devices at the same time. When receiving a call, these headphones know which device it’s coming from and instantly connects the consumer to the right one. Users can also quickly switch between devices with just the touch of a button.
