Introducing Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless noise cancelling headphones:
We've taken our industry-leading noise cancelling* to the next level. Four microphones in each ear cup pick up ambient noise more precisely to reduce high-frequency noise even further. The new integrated V1 processor fully exploits the potential of our QN1 HD processor for noise cancelling, delivering unprecedented levels of noise reduction.
Sony's unique technologies include high quality lead-free solder with gold for excellent conductivity, a Fine Sound Resistor for even power distribution, and optimised circuitry for improved signal-to-noise ratio for clear, rich sound.
LDAC supports High-Resolution Audio and High-Resolution Audio Wireless. This transmits around 3 times more data than conventional Bluetooth® audio for outstanding sound quality.
These headphones promise industry-leading call quality**, so you'll be able to hear clearly when you're on the phone and hear the person you're talking to. Our precision voice pickup technology with four beamforming microphones and artificial intelligence-based noise reduction algorithm accurately isolates your voice. The newly developed wind noise reduction structure also minimises wind noise during phone calls.
Intelligent Adaptive Noise Control detects where you are and what you're doing, and adjusts ambient noise settings accordingly for an ideal listening experience.
Intelligent Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses the music and switches to ambient sound when you are talking to someone. This is especially handy when you don't have a hand free.
Take off the headphones and the music stops. A sensor detects when you are wearing the headphones.
For maximum convenience, these Bluetooth® headphones can be paired with two devices at the same time. When a call comes in, the headphones recognise the device and automatically select it.
With support for Google's useful Fast Pair feature, you can quickly find your headphones if you ever misplace them: either via the audible signal or via the smartphone app "Find My Device".
Swift Pair makes it easy to pair the headphones with a laptop, desktop PC or tablet running Windows 11 or Windows 10.
With a long battery life*** of 30 hours, you can listen to music even on long journeys. Need to charge quickly? After 3 minutes of charging via the compatible USB PD**** power adapter, you can use the headphones for another 3 hours.
The WH-1000XM5 come with a foldable soft case for easy storage.
