Sony WH-1000XM5 specs & features
The Sony WH-1000XM5 is advertised as having the greatest noise-canceling technology available. Eight microphones assist the headphones to achieve this by significantly reducing noise, mostly on the medium and high-frequency bands.
The XM5 also claims to have the highest quality audio in the industry. In contrast to the XM4, it has a distinctive design, and the company claims that this time, comfort was given much more attention. The earcups can rotate sideways but not fold inwards like the previous generation.
They come with large 30mm dynamic drivers and use Bluetooth 5.2 wireless connectivity. Sound profiles like SBC, AAC, and LDAC audio formats, and A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP are all supported. There is also AI-based DSEE Extreme technology included in the earphones that restore quality and clarity to lossy compressed formats.
With ANC switched on, the XM5’s battery life can last up to 30 hours of music playback and up to 40 hours without ANC. A full charge takes about 3.5 hours, and you can charge via a USB Type-C port.
