From airplane noise to people’s voices, our WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones with multiple-microphone noise cancelling keep out more high- and mid-frequency sounds than ever. And with Auto NC Optimizer, noise cancelling is automatically optimized based on your wearing conditions and environment.
With four microphones on each earcup, this is our biggest ever step forward in noise cancelling. Ambient sound is captured even more accurately for a dramatic reduction in high-frequency noise. Thanks to Auto NC Optimizer, noise-cancelling performance is always and automatically optimized based on wearing conditions and external environmental factors such as atmospheric pressure.
Specially developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V1 unlocks the full potential of our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. This unique combination of technology controls eight microphones to deliver unprecedented noise-cancelling quality.
The specially designed 30mm driver unit featuring a soft edge enhances noise cancelling helping you enjoy your music precisely without ambient noise. The carbon fibre composite material realizes light weight and high rigidity dome and improves sound clarity, especially in high-frequency ranges.
The specially designed 30-mm (precision-engineered) driver unit with light and rigid dome using carbon fibre composite material 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.
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 datathan conventional Bluetooth® audio for exceptional High-Resolution Audio quality.
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.
Our Precise Voice Pickup Technology uses four beamforming microphones and an AI-based noise reduction algorithm to isolate your voice precisely. A newly developed wind noise reduction structure minimizes wind noise during calls. Wherever you are, you’ll always hear and be heard clearly.
Equipped with four beamforming microphones, these headphones are calibrated to only pick up your voice. An improved signal-to-noise ratio enables them to catch every single word, even when there’s a lot of noise around.
With Precise Voice Pickup Technology and advanced audio signal processing, the person on the other end of the call will hear your voice clearly, even when you are in noisy situations. Our noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using more than 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise and extract your voice clearly in a wide range of environments.
These lightweight headphones are beautifully finished in newly developed soft-fit leather. This material fits snugly around the head with less pressure on the ears while keeping out external sounds. Our noiseless design with stepless slider, seamless swivel and hanger makes WH-1000XM5 a pleasure to wear.
Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. When activated, it learns your behaviour and recognizes locations that you frequently visit, such as your workplace or a favourite café and tailors sound to suit the situation.
As soon as you start a conversation, Speak-to-Chat automatically stops your music and lets in ambient sound—handy if you want to keep your headphones on or talk hands-free. This smart feature uses microphones built into your headphones and advanced audio signal processing to recognize and react to your voice. Once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.
Get hands-free help—Just say “Hey Google” or “Alexa” to activate your preferred voice assistant.Listen to music, connect with friends, get notiﬁcations, set reminders and more. You can even control your headphones features like noise cancellation with your voice, listen to and interact with emails in Microsoft Outlook and join Microsoft Teams meetings using Google Assistant or Siri.
Check how safely you’re listening to music by comparing sound pressure data recorded by your headphones with guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO). Receive OS notifications when listening levels are too high.
For total convenience, these Bluetooth® headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. So when a call comes in, your headphones know which device is ringing and connects to the right one automatically. You’ll also be able to quickly switch your headphones to either of the two devices at the touch of a button.
With a huge 30 hours of battery life you’ll have enough power even for long trips. If you need to top up in a hurry, you can get 3 hours’ worth of charge after just 3 minutes with an optional USB-PD compatible AC adapter.
The WH-1000XM5 headphones feature intuitive touch control settings—for example, push the button on the left side to switch from Noise Cancelling to Ambient Sound or use the touch panel on the right side to play or pause music, skip tracks, change volume and much more.
