YOUR WORLD. NOTHING ELSE.
The WH-1000XM5 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, our 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.
Multi Noise Sensor Technology
With 8 total microphones, these headphones are our biggest step forward in noise canceling technology. Ambient sound is captured even more accurately for a dramatic reduction in high frequency noise. Thanks to the new Auto NC Optimizer, noise canceling performance is always and automatically optimized based on wearing conditions and external environmental factors such as atmospheric pressure.
Incomparable noise processing
Specially developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V1 unlocks the full potential of our 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 light weight 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 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 WH-1000XM5 supports High-Resolution Audio and High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC, our industry-adopted audio coding technology. LDAC transmits approximately three times more data2 than conventional Bluetooth® audio for exceptional High-Resolution Audio quality.5
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 instrumentation, musical genres and individual elements of each song, it restores high range sound lost in compression.
