The Design of Sony WH-1000XM5
As much as we'd like to believe that function is more important in the world of technology, there are only a few brands that succeed with an unashamedly ugly design in the market. Noiseless language is used to describe the WH-1000XM5, which is really just a slimmer and sleeker version of the previous model.
Storage of Sony WH-1000XM5
The WH-1000XM5 is clearly designed with style in mind, and while the previous generation XM4 was able to fold into a bag half its size, the XM5 can only be folded flat.
Find your headphones with Fast Pair
Fast Pair is now available on the WH-1000XM5 thanks to Google. Using Google's Find My Device app on your phone, you can quickly locate where your headphones are by hearing a tone or checking their last known location.
WH-1000XM5 Sound and Noise Cancelling
When Sony introduced their V1 noise-cancelling processor into their WF-1000XM4 and then included it in the WH-1000XM5 along with their HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1, they still hold the audio industry's top crown for noise cancellation technology. The XM5 has eight microphones strategically placed around the exterior, whereas the previous generation had a strong focus on low-end frequency cancellation.
the WH-1000XM5 comes with a smaller 30mm driver than the 40mm drivers used in the last generation WH-1000XM4. Natural sound output and improved high-frequency response are claimed for the new drivers. AAC, SBC, and LDAC are all supported by the headphones. These headphones also feature Sony's DSSE sound enhancement technology.
