The Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones rewrite the rules for distraction-free listening. 2 processors control 8 microphones for unprecedented noise cancellation and exceptional call quality. With a newly developed driver, DSEE – Extreme and Hi-Res audio support the WH-1000XM5 headphones provide awe-inspiring audio quality.
Industry-leading noise cancellation
From airplane noise to people’s voices, Sony’s WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones with 8 microphones for noise cancellation keep out more high and mid-frequency sounds than ever. And with the new Auto NC Optimizer, noise-canceling is automatically optimized based on your wearing conditions and environment.
Incomparable noise processing
Specially developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V1 unlocks the full potential of Sony’s HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1. This unique combination of technology controls 8 microphones to deliver unprecedent noise-canceling quality.
Newly designed driver
A new 30mm precision-engineered driver unit featuring a soft TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) edge enhances noise canceling, especially in low-frequency ranges, helping you enjoy your music precisely without ambient noise. The carbon fiber composite material is lightweight and the high rigidity dome improves sound clarity, especially in high-frequency ranges.
Magnificent sound, engineered to perfection
The light and rigid precision-engineered driver unit improves high-frequency sensitivity for more natural sound quality. Sony’s unique technologies include a premium lead-free solder containing gold for excellent conductivity, Fine Sound Resistor for even power distribution, and optimized circuitry for an improved signal-to-noise ratio to ensure clear, consistent sound.
High-Resolution Audio with and without wires
The Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones supports High-Resolution Audio and High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC, Sony’s industry-adopted audio coding technology. LDAC transmits approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth® audio for exceptional High-Resolution Audio quality.
Real-time restoration of all your compressed files
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ upscales compressed digital music files in real-time. Dynamically recognizing the instrumentation, musical genres and individual elements of each song, it restores high-range sound lost in compression.
Crystal Clear hands-free calling
With Precise Voice Pickup Technology and advanced audio signal processing, the person on the other end of the call will hear your voice clearly, even when you are in noisy situations. Sony’s noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using more than 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise and extract your voice clearly in a wide range of environments.
4 microphones, focused on your voice
Equipped with 4 beamforming microphones, the WH-1000XM5 headphones are calibrated to only pick up your voice. An improved signal-to-noise ratio enables them to catch every single word, even when there’s a lot of noise around.
As soon as you start a conversation, Speak-to-Chat automatically stops your music and lets in ambient sound – handy if you want to keep your headphones on or talk hands-free. This smart feature uses microphones built into your headphones and advanced audio signal processing to recognize and react to your voice. Once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.
Instant pause. Instant play.
Just take the headphones off and the music stops – a capacitive sensor knows when you are wearing them. It also helps improve detection accuracy and design. Put the headphones back on and the music starts again.
Control with your voice
Just say “OK Google” or “Alexa” to activate your preferred voice assistant. Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders, and more. You can even control your headphones’ features like noise cancellation with your voice listen to and interact with emails in Microsoft Outlook and join Microsoft Teams meetings using Google Assistant or Siri.
For total convenience, these Bluetooth® headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. So when a call comes in, your headphones know which device is ringing and connects to the right one automatically. You’ll also be able to quickly switch your headphones to either of the two devices at the touch of a button.
All-day comfort with an elegant design
These lightweight headphones are beautifully finished in newly developed soft-fit leather. This material fits snugly around the head with less pressure on the ears while keeping out external sounds. Sony’s elegant design with stepless slider, seamless swivel and hanger, and silent joints, makes WH-1000XM5 a pleasure to wear.
360 Spatial Sound Personalizer
With the Sony | 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app, you’ll enjoy a sound experience that’s optimized for you. The app captures and analyses your ear shape, allowing these headphones to create your own personal spatial sound field when using WLA-NS7 to connect to BRAVIA XR TVs (sold sep.)
Better for the environment
There’s no plastic in the Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones packaging, which is designed based on low toxicity design principles and a ‘Made to be Remade’ philosophy that’s more socially responsible. 99% of paper packaging, other than labels, is produced using recycled and sustainable materials developed especially for Sony. WH-1000XM5 also uses recycled plastic materials from automobile parts.
