Sony re-writes the rules with its newest industry-leading wireless noise-cancelling headphones, the WH-1000XM5.

Perhaps during the lockdowns of the pandemic, you became used to working from home and blasting your tunes over speakers. However, for many of us, office life (not to mention the commute there and back) is a more surreal and less forgiving space, which means you’ll need some decent headphones. Fortunately, Sony ups the noise-reduction ante with its new WH-1000XM4, a decidedly unsexy name for its newest state-of-the-art headphones.

Users can now enjoy premium, high-resolution audio, with and without wires, thanks to Sony’s audio coding technology, LDAC, with all your music restored to high range sound with the use of DSEE Extreme technology that upscales digital music files in real-time.

In addition to great music, Sony’s precise Voice Pickup technology uses four beamforming microphones and an AI-based noise reduction structure to isolate your voice with perfect precision during calls, while a newly developed wind noise reduction structure minimizes wind noise.

The WH-1000XM5 also come with smart features to help you effortlessly sail through each day. Thanks to Speak-to-Chat you can stop for a quick conversation and your headphones will automatically stop the music and let in ambient sound. Once your chat is over, the music plays on, and with the help of instant pause, your personal soundtrack will stop playing as soon as you take the headphones off.  

The new headphones also look pretty good thanks to an all-new noiseless design that includes soft fit leather on the ear cups and step-less slider. Throw in plastic-free packaging, a collapsable carry case and a 30-hour battery life and we think you have everything you need for the post-pandemic era.
