Sony India has launched the WH-1000XM5, the long-awaited successor to the hugely popular WH-1000XM4. The new Sony WH-1000XM5 claims to offer an all-new immersive audio experience thanks to the implementation of a number of new technologies, which improve the industry-leading noise cancellation and sound quality of the previous generation WH-1000XM4.
Sony’s WH-1000XM5 will compete with other premium headphones such as the Jabra Evolve2 65 and Bose QuietComfort 45, as well as the Bose 700.
Sony WH-1000XM5: Features
The WH-1000XM5 uses two different processors that control a total of eight microphones that significantly reduce noise, especially in the high-mid frequency range. It also uses an automatic noise canceling optimizer that automatically improves noise cancellation, based on the user’s environment.
The headphones have a 30mm noise-cancelling driver unit. With the help of the integrated V1 processor, the WH-1000XM5 fully unlocks the potential of Sony’s QN1 High Resolution Noise Canceling Processor.
To improve and enhance the sound experience, Sony has used a carbon fiber composite material driver that improves high frequency sensitivity for a more natural sound quality.
On top of that, the Sony WH-1000XMS headphones are 360 Reality Audio certified, which means you can enjoy an immersive, personalized audio experience with great levels of customization. The headphones use precise Sony Voice Pickup technology that uses four beamforming microphones and AI-based noise reduction to reduce wind and ambient noise during voice calling.
The WH-1000XM5 comes with up to 30 hours of battery life, so users can enjoy superior sound even on long trips, and if they’re in a hurry, they can now get an impressive three hours charge in just three minutes with just a USB.
The headset comes with a foldable handy carrying case that can be made thinner for easy storage, allowing users to easily take their headphones wherever they are. It supports Google’s handy new Fast Pair feature, allowing you to effortlessly pair with your Android devices.
It also supports Swift Pair, which makes it quick and easy to pair the headphones with your Windows 11 or Windows 10 laptop, desktop or tablet. But the best part is that these bluetooth headphones can be paired with two devices at the same time. When you receive a call, your headphones know which device it’s coming from and instantly connect you to the correct device.
The WH-1000XM5 also has quick access so you can configure these headphones to resume playing Spotify in two or three taps, without having to touch your smartphone. It also has the ability to automatically customize the sound to suit your situation, recognize the most frequent locations and adjust the ambient sound settings accordingly.

Although the Sony WH-1000XM5 has been priced at Rs 34,990, the premium wireless headphones are available in a special introductory offer of Rs 26,990. This offer is valid on orders placed between launch day and October 7th.
