These headphones were created by Sony with the environment in mind. The WH-1000XM5 container has no plastic and was created using low toxicity design principles and a more socially conscious “Made to be Remade” attitude. The product package is made from recyclable and environmentally friendly materials created especially for Sony. The WH-1000XM5 additionally makes use of recycled plastic from automotive components.


The new Sony headphones have a 30mm driver unit. It has a light, stiff dome made of carbon fibre composite material, which increases high-frequency sensitivity for a more realistic sound. A premium, lead-free solder incorporating gold for optimal connectivity and optimised circuitry that guarantees you hear clear, consistent sound with every track are also among Sony’s distinctive technologies. Enjoy premium, high-resolution music with or without cables thanks to Sony’s LDAC audio coding technology.  With the aid of DSEE Extreme, which upscales digital music files in real-time, all of your music will be returned to high-range sound, enabling you to fully enjoy the intricate subtleties that the artist infused into your favourite songs.

These brand-new headphones, which are 360 Reality Audio Certified, let you create a personalised, immersive music experience.

The Sony HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 is fully unlocked by the WH-1000XM5 with the aid of the Integrated Processor V1, and noise cancelling is improved by the specifically developed 30mm driver unit. These features enhance music quality and bass reproduction while producing noise cancellation that lets you completely shut out the outside world.

Eight microphones controlled by two processors in the WH-1000XM5 significantly decrease noise, especially in the mid-to-high frequency range, and an Auto NC Optimizer automatically adjusts noise cancellation to the surrounding environment. The WH-1000XM5 delivers an immersive listening environment, making it easy to focus on your job in a bustling cafe or unwind during a frantic morning commute.

With the help of four beamforming microphones, an AI-based noise reduction structure, and a newly designed wind noise reduction structure, Sony’s precise Voice Pickup technology perfectly isolates your voice while reducing wind noise during calls. Now, a noisy workplace or a crowded street can be the ideal setting for a quick catch-up conversation with friends or coworkers.

Connectivity and battery life

These Bluetooth headphones may simultaneously pair with two different devices. Your headphones automatically link you to the appropriate device when you receive a call since they can identify the source of the call. Additionally, you may easily switch between devices with a single button press. With the WH-1000XM5, you can quickly pair with your Android devices thanks to Google’s useful new Fast Pair function. You may also find the location of your last-used pair of headphones. To quickly and easily pair your headphones with your Windows 11 or Windows 10 laptop, desktop PC, or tablet, use Swift Pair.

With Quick Access built into the WH-1000XM5, you can set up these headphones to resume Spotify playback with just two or three taps, negating the need to touch your phone. Sony is aware of how quickly you move through the world, therefore the WH-1000XM5 uses Adaptive Sound Control to make the transition from your busy home to your hectic office setting smooth. This adapts sound automatically to your surroundings by identifying your favourite spots and changing the ambient sound settings accordingly.

The Sony Headphones Connect app, which compares the sound pressure data captured by your headphones with recommendations from the World Health Organisation, enables you to listen to music securely (WHO). When listening levels are too high, your OS will immediately alert you.

With the WH-1000XM5, you may stop for a brief discussion and your headphones will automatically pause the music and allow ambient sound thanks to Speak-to-Chat. As soon as your talk is over, the music resumes, and thanks to an instant pause, your customised soundtrack will cease playing the moment you take off your headphones. Additionally, the WH-1000XM5 is Google Assistant and Alexa compatible, assisting you with daily activities for hands-free assistance while you’re out and about. You may make reminders, listen to music, acquire information, connect with friends and family, and many other things.

With a battery life of 30 hours, the WH-1000XM5 allows you to enjoy high-quality sound even on lengthy commutes. With just three minutes of charge, it can deliver three hours of playtime using USB Power Delivery (PD).

It has a convenient foldable carrying case that can be made thinner for convenient storage, allowing you to take your headphones with you wherever you go.
