”The Sony WH-1000XM5 are a sonic triumph.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Simply the best noise-cancellation

If you’re looking for noise-cancelling headphones then why settle for anything less than the best?* The Sony WH-1000XM5 noise cancelling headphones have evolved through generations of award-winning designs. Now featuring four microphones on each earcup, noise isolation has moved to the next level. Ambient sound is captured more accurately than ever and, with Auto NC Optimiser, you get the very best levels of noise cancellation, wherever you’re listening.
*As of January 1, 2022. According to research by Sony Corporation, measured using JEITA-compliant guidelines. In headband-style of wireless noise-cancelling headphones market.

New Integrated Processor V1 for optimal performance
Controlling the eight microphones to their full noise-isolating potential, Sony has developed a sophisticated new processor – the V1. More powerful than ever, the new processor has the power to interpret data with absolute precision, meaning you hear even less of the outside world, without your music being compromised.

Precision-engineered for enhanced clarity and bass
Featuring new, precision-engineered drivers, clarity and bass timing are both improved. The drivers are light and rigid, meaning they’re faster to respond to your music, giving a more up-tempo sound that’s always on the beat. Other Sony sound enhancements include a Fine Sound Resistor for even power distribution and optimised circuitry for reduced background noise.

The best sound - wirelessly
With their LDAC wireless audio system, these Sony Bluetooth headphones are able to receive around 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 cabled connection.

Calls made clearer
The Sony WH1000XM5 doesn’t just deliver best-in-class noise isolation, they also provide industry-leading call quality, too*. Combining four, beamforming microphones with AI-based noise reduction and wind noise reduction, your caller gets to hear you clearer than ever. Whether it’s a crucial business call or specific directions to a friend or colleague, these Sony noise-cancelling headphones pick up every nuance of conversation, making them the best in the business.
*As of January 1st, 2022, measured using ETSI guidelines, headband style of wireless headphones' market excluding headset with boom microphone or USB dongle. Call quality excludes impediments related to the mobile device, third party service providers, Internet, network connectivity or environmental conditions.

Adaptive smart features to make life easier
Multiple smart technologies make listening and calling easier than ever. Adaptive Sound Control learns your behaviours and locations and tailors the sound to suit each situation. Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses the music when you start a conversion – such as ordering a coffee – so you don’t have to remove your headphones. When you do remove them, Wearing Detector pauses the music or after a period of time, powers the headphones off.

Twin pairing
For the added convenience, these Sony noise cancelling headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices, simultaneously. This means that you can enjoy the highest quality sound from your Hi-Res music player but, when a call comes in on your smartphone, effortlessly switch over.

Google Fast Pair and Swift Pair
Google’s handy new Fast Pair feature lets you easily locate your headphones by a tone sound or checks their last location on Google’s Find My Device app. Swift Pair works with Windows 11 or 10, connecting the headphones to your laptop or PC, quickly and easily.

Long battery life and fast charging
Thanks to the Sony WH-1000XM5’s 30-hour battery life, you can keep going for longer. Switch the noise cancelling facility off and this increases from up to 30 hours to up to 40 hours. If you’re running late and have forgotten to charge them, a quick 3-minute charge is enough for an hour’s playback or, when used with the optional USB-PD charger, 3-hours playback.

New collapsible case for easy storage
Traditional cases for on-ear and over-ear headphones can be bulky, making them awkward to store when you’re using your headphones. The new, collapsible case supplied with these Sony Bluetooth headphones is 40% thinner than before, meaning it takes up much less space in your bag.

For the very best in noise-isolating headphones, you need look no further than the industry-leading Sony WH-1000XM5.
