The Best Noise Cancelling1

The WF-1000XM5 reduces external noise over a wide bandwidth, from low to high frequencies. It contains two proprietary processors that cancel more external noise than ever, a new high-performance driver unit Dynamic Driver X, dual feedback microphones and innovative Noise Isolation Earbud Tips for a more stable fit. Real-time noise-cancelling processing can be optimised to provide the best performance for your environment, so you will hear a big difference, especially in aeroplanes, trains or buses.

Astonishing sound quality

The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X provides wide frequency reproduction, enabling deeper bass, subtle vocals and enhanced fine detail, especially on high-pitched instruments. The consummate performance, across the full range of frequencies, delivers a smooth and natural sound regardless of what you’re listening to.

Sony’s best-ever call quality2

Thanks to an AI-based noise reduction algorithm based on Deep Neural Network (DNN) processing and bone conduction sensors, your voice will come through clearly and more naturally, even in a noisy environment. And if you’re outdoors, the noise reduction structure will minimise any wind whooshes, so you always know you’ll be heard.

Small and beautifully designed

With an improved glossy texture and a more luxurious feel, these earbuds fit comfortably in your ears while keeping out external sounds. By downsizing the headphone body and optimising the placement of the components, the earbud is now approximately 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the WF-1000XM4. We’ve also reduced the size of the charging case, so it will sit even more sleekly in your pocket.

Intuitive Operation

Our smart features make it easier than ever to access and enjoy your entertainment throughout the day. For example, you can control the volume without opening your phone by double-tapping the headphones, and depending on the settings, you can access your regular music service without opening the app. With simple customisation available in the free Headphones Connect app you can assign your own functions to each earbud. Operating these headphones is effortless and they will fit seamlessly into your life.
