Sony has launched a successor to its hugely popular WH-1000XM4 Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones. The new model – WH-1000XM5 – comes with some changes and improvements and high price tag
The Sony WH-1000XM5 has a new design that makes the yokes more cylindrical and the headband thinner. The headband has a stapleless sliding design and a silent joint. The new year cups introduced with the Sony WH-1000XM5 can rotate sideways but not fold inwards like previous models. Sony, however, adjusts the quark by including a larger carry case with the WH-1000XM5.
The WH-1000XM5 features a new 8-microphone system with two QN1 audio processors. The Japanese electronics major claims that the Sony WH-1000XM5 had higher noise canceling performance than its predecessor, especially at mid- and high-frequency.
The Sony WH-1000XM5 also comes with a brand new driver. The new 30mm driver is smaller than the 40mm driver found in the previous model. Sony claims that the new drivers have improved the high-frequency response with more natural sound quality. The headphones still support the same AAC, SBC and LDAC Bluetooth codecs as the previous generation.
