The Best Noise Cancelling*

After five generations of continuous improvement, it’s little wonder that the Sony WF-1000XM5 headphones have class-leading noise cancellation. Featuring Multi-Noise Sensor technology, an array of mics detect all types of background noise. The signal is then honed by cutting-edge processing that cancels more external noise than ever. Noise isolation earbud tips help refine the sound still further. The result is a super-quiet background, even in busy office environments or when traveling on public transport.

*As of 10/02/23. According to research by Sony Corporation, measured using JEITA-compliant guidelines in truly wireless style noise cancelling headphone market.

Astonishing sound quality
At the heart of these premium Sony headphones are their new Dynamic Driver X units. These have an exceptionally wide frequency response, letting you hear everything from the deepest bass to the highest treble in absolute clarity. More than this, the hybrid material design helps promote a natural and lifelike sound.

Distortion, banished
Sony’s HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e and Processor V2 use 24-bit audio processing to help reduce distortion to vanishingly low levels. Combined with the Dynamic Driver X technology, this means you get the crispest and most detailed sound possible.

Ideal for Hi-Res music
Thanks to Sony’s LDAC wireless audio system, these Sony Bluetooth headphones are able to receive around two or three times more detail than ordinary Bluetooth headphones. This means that all your High-Resolution music files are played to perfection, without the need for a connecting cable.

Better sound for all your music, with DSEE Extreme
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme upsamples compressed music files in real time, adapting to the music genre. The result is a richer, more natural sound from all your music.

360 Reality Audio for enveloping sound
With Sony’s 360 Reality Audio, music is more immersive than ever. The technology pushes the sound around your head, giving the feeling of being enveloped by sound – just like at a live concert. Download the Sony Headphones Connect app and you can optimise the experience, with the app analysing you ear shape and creating a personal spatial sound field.

Sony’s best-ever call quality**
Using AI-based, Deep Neural Network (DNN) processing and bone conduction sensors, your voice is transmitted to your caller loud and clear – even in a noisy environment. Wind noise reduction helps reduce background noise when you’re on the move outdoors, with the Precise Voice Pickup technology and advanced processing enhancing clarity.

**As of 26/06/23 in the truly wireless headphones category.

Compact yet comfortable
Using extensive ear-shape data that Sony has collated since introducing the first in-ear headphones in 1982, the ergonomic design fits beautifully. Supplied with four sizes of buds, it’s easy to get long-lasting comfort, with reduced pressure, while still maintaining the noise cancellation. With their improved, glossy texture, the earphones feel more luxurious, too.

Multipoint Connection
For total convenience, these Sony Bluetooth headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. When a call comes in, your headphones know which device is ringing and connect to the right one automatically. You’re also able to quickly switch your headphones to either of the two devices at the touch of a button.

Listen all day, with the class-leading battery life
Although smaller and lighter than ever, the WF-1000XM5 earphones still maintain their impressive 24 hours of total battery life. With up to 8 hours playback available from each earbud charge, you can keeping listening for longer. The case provides an extra two charges, giving you a total of up to 24 hours playback. If you’re in a hurry, a quick three-minute charge is enough for a full hour’s playback – perfect for the commute to work. Compatible with Qi technology you can even charge them wirelessly with a Qi charger or the latest compatible smartphone with a battery share function.

The perfect partner for your workout
Not only do the WF-1000XM5’s fit better than ever, the IPX4 rating means that they’re also resistant to splashes and sweat. This makes them ideal for jogging, the gym or your regular home workout.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WF-1000XM5 Wireless review Almost one month into wearing these and overall I am very happy. Great sound, easy to use and small. Ergonomically there is still some room for improvement. The sponge attachments could use one more size and refinement. The shine polished shell of the earpads do make them rather slippery and thus lack some grip when wearing them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Ear Buds I purchased these WF-1000XM5 's to replace my other Sony C700 which I received free of charge from Sony. I think the sound is a lot better having a larger driver ( 8mm as opposed to a 5mm in the C700 ) They fit into my ears perfectly with no risk of falling out. Noise cancelling is brilliant and the battery life is amazing. These have wireless charging too which was another reason for updating from the C700 's. The overall build quality is excellent which you can always count on from Sony, even the case is well made, and coated in a non slip rubbery material. Very easy to set up once you've downloaded the Headphone app, with plenty of different settings. I would highly recommend these over other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ear buds with awesome noise cancelling Let me start with what could be better - The case should be made of a material that isn't so slippery!, It feels great but not practical as I'm likely to drop these over and over which wouldn't be good, I have now bought a silicon case to go over the case to make it more tactile, otherwise these are great earbuds. FIT - I had no issues with the fit, nice and comfy and not going to fall out any time soon. Will say if you want the noise cancelling to work well you need to fiddle and make sure tight fit. They also came with a bunch of optional ear cups if the normal are not quite your size. Sound - As expected the sound is great and some good EQ options in the app if the source of the music isn't right. Lots of bass which is what i like. Noise Cancelling - This works well, but I found you need to fiddle with the buds to make a tight seal to make sure noise cancelling working as well as it can. I also own over the ear Sony headphones, the noise cancelling is much better on those but I wasn't expected earbuds to compete with them. If noise cancelling is super important then maybe go for the over ear type. Build Quality - Can't fault the quality of these, they feel and look great, as mentioned my only issue was the material of the case being so slippery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound experience This is my first real true wireless earbuds, and I’m really happy with the sound quality and the future, it was really hard in the beginning to find the correct tips size, but the Sony App has a feature to tell you which size works for my ears, I discover that my ears has two different sizes for each ear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound I bought this about 2 weeks ago and the sound quality is very good. Although the noise cancelling needs bit of work for London Underground.
