The Best Truly Wireless Noise Cancellation

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-canceling processing can be optimized to provide the best performance for your environment so you will hear a big difference, especially in airplanes, trains, or buses.

Multi Noise Sensor technology

Three microphones on each earbud, including dual feedback mics improve low-frequency cancellation performance. This is Sony’s biggest step forward in noise cancellation, resulting in ambient sound captured even more accurately so you can enjoy one of Sony’s purest sounds.

Noise Cancelation technology

Exclusively developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V2 unlocks the full potential of Sony’s HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e. The unique combination of technology controls the six microphones, across both ears, to deliver unprecedented noise-cancelling quality that can be adapted to provide the best performance for your environment.

New high sound quality and noise canceling driver unit

The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X, able to reproduce lower frequencies, has been improved using a dome-edge separation structure that combines different materials, allowing for a more accurate generation of cancellation waves in lower frequencies.

Astonishing sound quality

Enjoy rich, more detailed vocals thanks to a specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X for wide frequency reproduction, you will experience rich vocals and enhanced fine details. The diaphragm structure combines several different materials for the dome and the edge, achieving low distortion and a clear sound quality.

Designed for less distortion

Thanks to two new processors, the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e and Integrated Processor V2, the WF-1000XM5 incorporates precision 24-bit audio processing and high- performance analogue amplification. The result is low distortion and crystal-clear audio reproduction.

Enjoy High-Resolution Audio

The WF-1000XM5 supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC, over industry-adopted audio coding technology. LDAC transmits approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth audio for exceptional High-Resolution Audio quality that is closer than ever to studio recording.

AI technology for precision sound

Using Edge-AI, DSEE Extreme upscales compressed digital music files in real-time, including those from popular streaming services. It dynamically recognizes each song’s instrumentation, musical genre and individual elements, and restores high-range sound lost in compression.

Head tracking function

Head tracking ensures a realistic and compelling listening experience by automatically adjusting sound fields to compensate for your head movement. Sounds are precisely aligned with your smartphone screen, even as you move, to completely involve you in your viewing by connecting to compatible smartphones/services.

Spatial sound with 360 Reality Audio

With 360 Reality Audio headphones and the Sony Headphones Connect app, an advanced personal optimization algorithm gives you an even greater sense of sound space, distance and height, allowing you to become even more immersed in the music. It’s as if you are at a live concert, or with your favorite artist in a recording studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real.

Sony’s best ever call quality

Mute the outside world 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. Sony’s noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using more than 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise, increase accuracy and extract your voice clearly in various environments.

Detects speech vibrations to enhance clarity

Bone conduction sensors pick up the vibration of your voice directly from your skull bones, helping to isolate your speech from ambient sounds and background noise, for clear calls even in loud environments.

AI Noise Reduction Algorithm

Thanks to an AI-based noise reduction algorithm based on Deep Neural Network processing (DNN) your voice will come through clear, and more natural even in a noisy environment.

Hear and be heard

A wind noise reduction structure and a mesh wrap in the microphone will minimize noise during calls so you can be heard clearly in windy conditions.

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 optimizing the placement of the components, the earbud is now 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the WF-1000XM4. Sony has also reduced the size of your charging case, so it will fit even more sleekly in your pocket.

Feel a more stable fitting earbud

Noise Isolation Earbud Tips feature a unique polyurethane foam material which reduces noise in the high-frequency range. Soft and elastic, they maximize the contact area between the earbud tip and the ear canal, insulating your sound and reducing noise. It also improves adhesion to the ear canal for a more secure, stable fit.

Comfortable and secure

Sony’s WF-1000XM5 earbuds feature a shape with an ergonomic design for a more stable fit. Sony has designed the WF-1000XM5 utilizing extensive ear-shape data collated since introducing the world’s first in-ear headphones in 1982. Sony’s continuous evaluation of different ear shapes and sensitivities has helped us design an ideal earbud shape, secure and comfortable for almost everybody.

Multipoint Connection

For smooth switching, the WF-1000XM5 can be paired with two Bluetooth devices simultaneously so, when a call comes in, your earbuds can automatically connect to the right one. With the multipoint connection you can quickly switch to a ringing device, then back by simply resuming playback on the other device.

A clear, stable Bluetooth signal

These earbuds utilize a powerful new Integrated Processor 2, which transmits a Bluetooth signal simultaneously to and from both ears, so you can enjoy a stable sound. These earbuds are ready for LE Audio (beta version), a next-generation Bluetooth audio that enables ultra-low latency – ideal for gaming.

Adjusts to the world around you

Adaptive Sound Control senses where you are and what you’re doing, then uses AI to change ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. Over time, it will learn your behavior, recognize locations you visit often, and tailor the sound to suit your location.

A new sound experience for AR gaming

If you’re looking for new entertainment options beyond music and movies, the WF-1000XM5 uses new sensors and spatial sound technology to deliver immersive sound for Augmented Reality games like “Ingress” from Niantic. When playing “Ingress” with the WF-1000XM5, sensor and spatial sound technologies deliver a new experience: using head tracking, the sound is conveyed from different directions to line up perfectly with the action on the screen.

Seamless music and audio notifications

Auto Play delivers music and audio notifications when you need them. Music plays at your preferred time, such as when you’re putting your headphones on or starting to walk for a break, uplifting your mood effortlessly. Audio notification reminds you of all your important events, so your phone can stay safely in your pocket. Link with Spotify, Endel and music apps and get your favorite music and relaxing soundscapes.

Talk and only hear ambient sound

You can set Speak-to-Chat to pause the music as soon as you start speaking to someone, so you can hear just ambient sound and conduct a conversation – handy if you want to keep your headphones on or your hands are full. Once your chat is over, your music will start playing automatically.

Instant pause. Instant play.

Just take the earbuds out of your ears and the music stops – a proximity sensor knows when you are wearing one or both earbuds. Pop the earbuds back in and the music starts again.

Quick access to your favorite music and soundscapes

With Quick Access, you can configure these wireless earbuds to resume Spotify music playback or Endel personalized soundscapes with two or three taps – no need to touch your smartphone.

Controls headphones with head gestures

You can operate your earbuds using natural head gestures like receiving or declining calls or operating Auto Play by nodding or shaking your head.

Everything at your fingertips

Tap on the left earbud to change from Noise Canceling to Ambient Sound, long tap for Quick Attention, or double tap on the right to skip to the next track. You can even turn the volume up or down by tapping four or more times in a row. With simple customization available in the Sony Headphones Connect app, you can assign your own functions to each earbud.

How do you like to listen?

With the Sony | Headphones Connect app, Ambient Sound Control lets you adjust the volume of background sound and gives you the option to allow voices. Thanks to the new Equalizer setting, anyone can easily adjust the sound to their own preference by listening to and comparing their preferred sound quality with the App.

Control with your voice

Get hands-free help by saying “Ok Google” or “Alexa” to activate your preferred voice assistant. Then, listen to music, connect with friends, get notifications, set reminders, and more. You can even control the features of your earbuds, like noise cancellation with your voice.

Absolutely love the WF-1000XM5
These are some of the best sounding ear buds I have used, they're comfortable and hold a very long charge when in use. I have to play with them a bit more to find out all of its features but as of right now I'm very happy with the product.

Connection not stable
It's the signature Sony sound you can expect but the legacy of unstable connection continues. it's not so bad that it is unusable but in crowded area such as gym and train station, one side would disconnect fringing from less than a second to about 2 seconds.

Design wise, it's sleeker than previous model but it's slippery to hold. I have to consciously handle the earbuds every time.

Great overall earbuds for the price!
I bought these a week back and also got the customized leather case with my name embossed on it. The ANC is really class apart for the size and functionality of the product. I have upgraded from the Xm3 to the Xm5s and the most significant differences are the sound stage, the size of the earbuds and the case and the dual device connectivity(finally). I found the large earbuds best fit for ANC, which really do a good job enhancing the ANC. Calls with my friends are great and they did feedback that the sound is clear and crisp when the background noise is minimal or if there are no loud vehicles around, but overall call quality is great. I am very satisfied with the product and will hope to use them for at least 3-4 years while taking good care of them.

The only con perhaps is that the app has too much clutter with the external subscription services, can honestly remove these. And there should be a find my earbuds feature like airpods. Otherwise, they are fantastic!!!!

high built quality
Have tried a couple of times and it doesn't disappoint. My only concern remains the battery in long run. Hopefully any new software update won't affect the battery life

A mobile system that deliver superb sound
I bought this SONY in ear headphone and was utmost satisfied with this small system that delivered superb sound. The noise cancellation is just the best I have ever experienced so far and the 360 sound field is just unimaginable. Besides, the sound reproducing is excellent besides the superb features the change track, to pause and suspend noise cancellation with just a simple tap on the device. Definitely value for money ! Thanks SONY for putting all the wonderful features into this superb light devices
