Sony has a new earbud offering, the new WF-1000XM5 truly wireless earbuds.
This new model is part of the 1000X series and promises to offer the best noise cancelling. On top of that next level immersive sound and Sony’s best ever call quality.
Given using earbuds for calls tends to suck, I will be very interested to see how this performs in NZ conditions.
For The Music
With the launch of the WF-1000XM5, Sony has established “For The Music”, a new brand tagline for its audio products. Under this tagline, Sony is affirming itself as the premier audio brand connecting creators and music lovers, aiming to create authentic music experiences and transcend emotion for fans by supporting creative vision over everything.
Best-Ever Noise Cancelling Performance
The WF-1000XM5 earbuds raise the bar for distraction-free listening and clarity. With Sony’s expertise in music, you can trust that you’re getting the ultimate music experience.
The WF-1000XM5 features cutting-edge technology to deliver premium sound quality and the best noise cancelling performance on the market. Real-time audio processors and high-performance mics power the specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X, for wide frequency reproduction, deep bass, and clear vocals. They are designed to immerse you in a sound so good, it feels like you’re in the studio with your favourite artists.
The WF-1000XM5 now features three microphones on each earbud, including dual feedback mics, which improve low-frequency cancellation performance. This is Sony’s biggest ever step forward in noise cancelling, resulting in ambient sound captured even more accurately.
Newly developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V2 unlocks the potential of the 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.
The ability to reproduce lower frequencies has also been improved on the WF-1000XM5 thanks to the new Dynamic Driver X. Plus, the Noise Isolation Earbud Tips feature a unique polyurethane foam material that reduces noise in the high frequency range.
Sony’s best ever call quality
The WF-1000XM5 now feature Sony’s best ever call quality2, delivering your voice clearly in every situation whether you’re in the office, working from home or in a noisy public place.
Thanks to an AI-based noise reduction algorithm founded on Deep Neutral Network (DNN) processing and bone conduction sensors, your voice will come through crystal clear and natural even in a noisy environment. Plus, if you’re outdoors, the wind noise reduction structure will minimise any wind noise, so you always know you’ll be heard.
Comfortable and beautifully designed
The WF-1000XM5 earbuds have been designed with comfort in mind, featuring an improved, glossy texture with a luxurious feel that make them a pleasure to wear. The shape of the earbuds is modelled after the human ear, with an ergonomic design that ensures a secure and stable fit. Additionally, these earbuds are approximately 25% smaller and approximately 20% lighter than their predecessor (WF-1000XM4), making them more comfortable to wear for extended periods.
The Noise Isolation Earbud Tips are made from an exclusive material that not only enhances the fit but also increases comfort by reducing pressure in the ear thanks to a newly designed shape. Additionally, the earbuds come in four different sizes, including the ultra-small SS, so you can choose the perfect fit for your ears.
