The WH-1000XM5 headphones were created with Sony noise canceling technology with two processors controlling eight microphones that dramatically reduce frequency, especially mid- to high-frequency noise and automatically optimizes noise cancelation depending on the environment. This is along with various consumer variables including head size, whether the listener is wearing glasses or if hair is covering their ears. Whether users are trying to zone into work in a busy cafe or aiming to relax during a hectic morning commute, the WH-1000XM5 headphones create an immersive listening environment.

With the help of the Integrated Processor V1, the WH-1000XM5 headphones unlock the full potential of Sony's HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1, while the specially designed 30mm driver unit enhances noise canceling. These features improve sound clarity and bass reproduction, creating incomparable noise cancelation that allows the listener to completely switch off the world around them whether they're escaping from plane noise or sitting on a train on their way home from work.

Sony's meticulous selection of materials and their assembly means users can enjoy their favorite tracks in the way they should be experienced. The 30mm driver unit with a light and rigid dome uses carbon fiber composite material that improves high-frequency sensitivity for more natural sound quality. Sony's unique technologies also include a premium lead-free solder containing gold for excellent connectivity and optimized circuitry that ensures users are experiencing clear, consistent sound with every track.

For those familiar with the sleek design of the WH-1000X series, the WH-1000XM5 headphones introduces a beautifully crafted evolution in style. An all-new design is finished in a newly developed soft fit, synthetic leather with a stepless slider. The synthetic leather material fits snuggly around the head taking pressure off the users' ears and blocking out external noise, so they can keep listening all day, free of discomfort.
