Best-Ever Noise Cancelling Performance

The WF-1000XM5 earbuds set a new standard for clear, distraction-free listening. With Sony’s expertise in music, you can be confident that you’re receiving the best music experience possible.

The WF-1000XM5 incorporates cutting-edge technology to provide excellent sound quality as well as the finest noise-cancelling performance1 on the market. The specifically built Dynamic Driver X driver unit is powered by real-time audio processors and high-performance mics for wide frequency reproduction, deep bass, and clear voices. They are intended to immerse you in a sound so amazing that you feel as if you are in the studio with your favourite musicians.

The WF-1000XM5 now has three microphones, including twin feedback mics, on each earbud, which improves low-frequency cancelling effectiveness. This is Sony’s largest shift forward in noise cancellation, resulting in substantially more accurate ambient sound recording.

Sony’s new Integrated Processor V2 unleashes the capabilities of the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e. The innovative technology controls six microphones across both ears to give unmatched noise-cancellation quality that can be tailored to your specific environment.

The WF-1000XM5’s ability to reproduce lower frequencies has also been boosted due to the new Dynamic Driver X. Furthermore, the Noise Isolation Earbud Tips are made of a special polyurethane foam composition that minimises noise in the high frequency range.

Expertly engineered for astonishing sound quality

Everything on the WF-1000XM5 is optimised for music, from finer voices to deeper bass.

The WF-1000XM5 provides richer and more detailed vocals thanks to a specially built Dynamic Driver X for wide frequency reproduction. The diaphragm structure blends a variety of materials for the dome and the edge, resulting in crisp highs and a deep, rich bass sound with little distortion.

The WF-1000XM5 includes precise 24-bit audio processing and high-performance analogue amplification by integrating Sony’s newly designed HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e and Integrated Processor V2. As a result, there is less distortion and the audio reproduction is perfectly clear.

Moreover, these earbuds are 25% smaller and 20% lighter than their predecessor (WF-1000XM4), making them more pleasant to use for extended periods of time.

The Noise Isolation Earbud Tips are composed of an innovative material that not only improves fit but also boosts comfort by lowering ear pressure due to a newly developed form. Also the earbuds are available in four different sizes, including the ultra-small SS, so you can find the right fit for your ears.

The sound is sent from several directions using head tracking to line up exactly with the action on the screen.

The WF-1000XM5 also has Sony’s famous features like as Adaptive Sound Control and Speak-to-Chat, as well as Multipoint Connect, which allows you to link two Bluetooth devices simultaneously so that when a call comes in, your earbuds immediately recognise which device is ringing and connect to the correct one.
