The WF-1000XM5 features cutting-edge technology to deliver premium sound quality and the best noise cancelling performance on the market.

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.
