Sony has just unveiled the Sony WH-1000XM5, the successor of the WH-1000XM4 wireless noise-canceling headphones. It comes with a design overhaul and other changes but also a bump in price.

The design of the Sony WH-1000XM5 has been overhauled with a more rounded connection between the earcups and the thinner headband. In addition, the headband has a step-less sliding design feature with silent joints.

The new earcups can also rotate sideways but cannot fold inwards like their predecessor. Because of that, the XM5 comes with a larger carry case.

Other features include:

  • 8-microphone system with two QN1 audio processors 
  • Better noise-canceling performance over its predecessor more so in the mid and high frequencies
  • 30mm drivers 
  • Improved high-frequency response with more natural sound quality
  • Supports SBC, AAC, and LDAC Bluetooth codecs
  • Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity with multipoint connection
  • Google Fast Pair and Windows Swift Pair support
  • Ambient noise mode
  • Gesture control
  • Wear detection for play/pause
  • Google Assistant/Alexa support
  • Rated battery life of 30 hours of audio playback with ANC on and 40 hours with ANC off
  • Charging via USB-C connector

The Sony WH-1000XM5 is priced at USD 400 and is now available featuring the two colorways – Black and Silver.

It is now available for pre-order in the Philippines for PHP 20,999 until June 19, 2022. If you decide to pre-order, you get a PHP 2,000 Philippine Airlines E-Gift card as well.
