Savour your music wherever you are with the Sony WH-1000XM5. The QN1 Processor is in charge of cancelling noise around you, so you can get lost in the sound of your music, podcast, or a TV show. Thanks to 30 mm drivers and support for High-Resolution Audio Wireless everything will sound its best – with rumbly lows, clear vocals, and bright highs. Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts the sound profile to your environment, so you’ll always get the most out of your music. Speak-to-Chat will pause your music when you start having a conversation and resume playing once you’re done.
Our best noise cancelling gets even better
See how these Sony noise cancelling headphones combine our best ever noise cancelling technology with superlative sound for a truly remarkable listening experience.
Industry-leading noise cancellation
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 optimised based on your wearing conditions and environment.
Superlative sound, engineered to perfection
The specially designed 30mm (precision-engineered) driver unit with light and rigid dome using carbon fiber 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 optimised circuitry for an improved signal-to-noise ratio to ensure clear, consistent sound.
1000X series best call quality ever
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 minimises wind noise during calls. Wherever you are, you’ll always hear and be heard clearly.
All day comfort with a noiseless design
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, and silent joints, makes WH-1000XM5 a pleasure to wear.
Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do
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 recognises locations that you frequently visit, such as your workplace or a favourite café, and tailors sound to suit the situation.
