- The new Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless noise-canceling headphones succeed the critically acclaimed WH-1000XM4.
- The new model retains all the best features of its predecessor while upgrading on design, higher frequency response, and even better noise-canceling performance.
- With their thinner headband, silent joints, and larger carry case, the headphones are convenient to use. They go against the likes of the Apple AirPods Max.
The Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones have an over-the-ear design with cylindrical yokes and a thin headband. They house four beamforming microphones on each side, for clear calls and better noise cancellation. The ear cups are rotatable sideways but lack an inward folding mechanism. They come with a handy carrying case. The headphones are offered in Silver and Black colors.
Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones offer up to 30 hours of audio playback with ANC turned on and 40 hours without ANC. The battery can be charged via a Type-C cable, and a three-minute charge can yield three hours of battery life.
The Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones are equipped with 30mm audio drivers for high-frequency response with more natural sound quality. They house an Integrated Processor V1 and Sony's HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1, for an enhanced noise-canceling experience. Ambient mode, gesture control, wear detection, and Google Assistant/Amazon Alexa assistance are supported. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 5.2 with multi-point connection and Google Fast Pair.
The Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones are offered in Black and Silver shades. They bear a price tag of Rs. 26,999 and can be pre-booked via the brand's e-store and Amazon. Their open sale will begin on October 8.
