Features



The Best Noise Cancelling*

The WF-1000XM5 reduces external noise over a wide bandwidth, from low to high frequencies. It contains two proprietary processors that cancel more external noise than ever, a new high-performance driver unit Dynamic Driver X, dual feedback microphones, and innovative Noise Isolation Earbud Tips for a more stable fit. Real-time noise-cancelling processing can be optimised to provide the best performance for your environment, so you will hear a big difference, especially in aeroplanes, trains, or buses. 

*As of April 10, 2023. Ambient noise reduction according to research by Sony Corporation, measured using JEITA-compliant guidelines for the top 10 brands (by market share) of truly wireless style of noise-cancelling headphones market.

 

Multi Noise Sensor technology

Three microphones on each earbud, including dual feedback mics, improve low-frequency cancellation performance. This is our biggest ever step forward in noise cancelling, resulting in ambient sound captured even more accurately. So you can enjoy one of our purest sounds.

 

Unbeatable Noise Cancellation*

Exclusively developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V2 unlocks the full potential of our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e. This 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.

*As of April 10, 2023. Ambient noise reduction according to research by Sony Corporation, measured using JEITA-compliant guidelines for the top 10 brands (by market share) of truly wireless style of noise-cancelling headphones market.

 

New high-quality sound and noise cancelling driver unit

The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X able to reproduce lower frequencies has been improved using a dome-edge separation structure that combines different materials, allowing for a more accurate generation of cancellation waves in the lower frequencies.

 

Feel a more stable fitting earbud

Noise Isolation Earbud Tips feature a unique polyurethane foam material which reduces noise in the high-frequency range. Soft and elastic, they maximise the contact area between the earbud tip and the ear canal, insulating your sound and reducing noise. It also improves adhesion to the ear canal for a more secure, stable fit.

 

Astonishing sound quality

The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X provides wide frequency reproduction, enabling deeper bass, subtle vocals and enhanced fine detail, especially on high-pitched instruments. The consummate performance, across the full range of frequencies, delivers a smooth and natural sound regardless of what you're listening to.

 

Enjoy richer, more detailed vocals

Thanks to a specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X for wide frequency reproduction, you will experience richer vocals and enhanced fine details. The diaphragm structure combines several different materials for the dome and the edge, achieving low distortion and a clear sound quality.

 

Designed for less distortion

By combining our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e and Integrated Processor V2, the WF-1000XM5 incorporates precision 24-bit audio processing and high-performance analogue amplification. The result is low distortion and crystal clear audio reproduction.

 

Enjoy High-Resolution Audio

The WF-1000XM5 supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC™, our industry-adopted audio coding technology. LDAC™ transmits approximately three times more data* than conventional Bluetooth® audio for exceptional High-Resolution Audio quality** that is closer than ever to the studio recording.

*At the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps.
**You need to set the function to "Priority on Sound Quality" using the Sony | Headphones Connect app. Compatible devices supporting LDAC will be required.

 

AI technology for precision sound

Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™* upscales compressed digital music files in real-time, including those from popular streaming services. It dynamically recognises each song's instrumentation, musical genre and individual elements, and restores high-range sound lost in compression.

*Activate the DSEE Extreme™ from the Sony | Headphones Connect app.

A = Expanded audio dynamics (strings and whisper-quiet subtleties)
B = Restored high frequencies (acoustic and vocal instrument realism)

 

Head-tracking function

Head tracking ensures a realistic and compelling listening experience by automatically adjusting sound fields to compensate for your head movement. Sounds are precisely aligned with your smartphone screen, even as you move, to completely involve you in your viewing by connecting to compatible smartphones/services*.

*You can experience spatial sound content (like Netflix, YouTube) with Android 13 smartphones capable of head tracking. Also, you can experience 360 Reality Audio content with Xperia 1 V on 360 Reality Audio Live app, such as nugs.net or TIDAL. Some services may not be available in certain countries/regions.

Conventional use
With conventional headphones, when your head moves, the sound moves with the headphones. This disconnects the sound from its position in space, impairing the 3D effect and presence.

 

With head-tracking capability
With head tracking, when you move your head, the sound field retains its original position in 3D space - for a realistic viewing and listening experience

 

Certified headphones for a personalised experience

With 360 Reality Audio certified headphones and the Sony | Headphones Connect app, optimise your experience by analysing your individual ear shape, and enjoy the ultimate immersive music experience.

An advanced personal optimisation algorithm gives an even greater sense of sound space, distance and height, allowing you to become even more immersed in the music*,**.

*The same experience as the headphones (shown in picture) is available.
**Sony | Headphones Connect App is needed and may require a subscription to a music streaming service for which fees apply. Some services may not be available in certain countries/regions.

 

360 Spatial Sound Personalizer

With the Sony | 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer app*, you'll enjoy a sound experience that's optimised for you. The app captures and analyses your ear shape, allowing these headphones to create your spatial sound field when paired with BRAVIA XR TVs**, ***.

*Sony | 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer is an app that personalises your sound experience when connected to a BRAVIA XR™ TV.
**Firmware update available by Jan 2022 and is required to enjoy 360 Spatial Sound on BRAVIA XR™. A network connection is required for the firmware update of BRAVIA XR™.

Sony's best ever call quality*

Thanks to an AI-based noise reduction algorithm based on Deep Neural Network (DNN) processing, and bone conduction sensors, your voice will come through clear and more natural, even in a noisy environment. And if you're outdoors, the noise reduction structure will minimise any wind whooshes, so you always know you'll be heard.

*As of June 26th 2023, in truly wireless headphones.

 

Detects speech vibrations to enhance clarity

Bone conduction sensors pick up the vibration of your voice directly from your skull bones, helping to isolate your speech from ambient sounds and background noise, for clear calls in even loud environments.

 

Mute the outside world for clear call quality

With Precise Voice Pickup Technology and advanced audio signal processing, the person on the other end of the call will hear your voice clearly, even when you are in noisy situations. Our noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using more than 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise, increase accuracy and extract your voice clearly in various environments.

 

Always hear and be heard

A wind noise reduction structure and a mesh wrap in the microphone will minimise noise during calls so you can be heard clearly in windy conditions.

 

Small and beautifully designed

With an improved glossy texture and a more luxurious feel, these earbuds fit comfortably in your ears while keeping out external sounds. By downsizing the headphone body and optimising the placement of the components, the earbud is now approximately 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the WF-1000XM4. We've also reduced the size of the charging case, so it will sit even more sleekly in your pocket.

 

Comfortable and secure

Our WF-1000XM5 earbuds feature a shape that perfectly matches the human ear with an ergonomic design for a more stable fit. We've designed the WF-1000XM5 utilising extensive ear-shape data collated since introducing the world's first in-ear headphones in 1982. Our continuous evaluation of different ear shapes and sensitivities has helped us design an ideal earbud shape, secure and comfortable for almost everybody.

 

A comfortable fit and better sound insulation

New Noise Isolation Earbud Tips are made from an exclusive material that improves fitting and increases comfort thanks to reduced pressure in the ear due to a newly designed shape. The earbuds come in four sizes, including SS.

 

Smooth switching

For total convenience, the WF-1000XM5 can be paired with two Bluetooth® devices simultaneously so, when a call comes in, your headphones can automatically connect to the right one. With the multipoint connection you can quickly switch to a ringing device, then back by simply resuming playback on the other device.

 

A clear, stable Bluetooth signal

These earbuds utilise a powerful new Integrated Processor V2, which transmits a Bluetooth signal simultaneously to and from both ears, so you can enjoy a stable sound.
These earbuds are ready for LE Audio (Beta version), a next generation Bluetooth audio that enables ultra low latency - ideal for gaming*.

*Feature requires firmware update. Feature requires connection to a compatible smartphone, Xperia 1 IV / Xperia 5 IV, availability may vary by region.

A) Conventional L to R Relay BT Transmission.
B) WF-1000XM5 L/R Simultaneous BT Transmission

 

Adjusts to the world around you

Adaptive Sound Control senses where you are and what you're doing, then uses AI to change ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. Over time, it will learn your behaviour, recognise locations you visit often, and tailor the sound to suit your location.

 

A new sound experience for AR gaming

If you're looking for new entertainment options beyond music and movies, the WF-1000XM5 uses new sensors and spatial sound technology to deliver immersive sound for Augmented Reality games like "Ingress" from Niantic*,**.

When playing "Ingress" with the WF-1000XM5, sensor and spatial sound technologies deliver a new experience: using head tracking, the sound is conveyed from different directions to line up perfectly with the action on the screen.

*The service may not be available in some countries/regions.
**Feature requires firmware update, available in the summer 2023.

 

Seamless music and audio notifications

Auto Play delivers music and audio notifications just when you need them. Music plays at your preferred timings, such as when you're putting your headphones on or starting to walk for a break, uplifting your mood effortlessly. Audio notification reminds you of all your important events, so your phone can stay safely in your pocket.

Talk and hear only ambient sound

You can set Speak-to-Chat to pause the music as soon as you start speaking to someone, so you can hear just ambient sound and conduct a conversation* - handy if you want to keep your headphones on or your hands are full. Once your chat is over, your music will start playing again automatically**.

*In rare cases, Speak-to-Chat may unintentionally start up in response to vibrations caused by devices such as electric toothbrushes, electric massagers or electric shavers, and activities such as brushing teeth, coughing or humming.

Goodbye AirPods

Colour: Black

After losing my well use AirPod Pros and my podcasts to listen to stacking up I needed a replacement.
These are what I went with and don’t have a single regret. The product has a premium feel and build quality.The audio quality is significantly better than AirPods.
The integration with my iPhone isn’t as thorough as what you’d get from AirPods but this is just a tactic from Apple.
There’s an app to make customisations to button response and many features to play with.
All in all, I highly recommend these eat buds and have no regrets with my purchase

They don't stay in my ears

Colour: Black

Pros: sound amazing. Everything the reviews say about them are true.
Noise canceling worked well on flights, although I did have to turn off the "talk to let ambient sound in" function as the sound of the engines were being mistaken as my voice (!).
The 360 sound with a Tidal HiFi plus... amazing.
If that were it, I'd say 5 stars. But alas...
It all means nothing if they don't stay in my ears. A critical fail that cant be overlooked. Everyones ears are different but utterly infuriating for me. I've tried every OEM tip, I've brought aftermarket foam ones, aftermarket silicon ones. Maddening and expensive waste. Now for sale on trademe if you ...view more

Very poor noise cancelling.

Colour: Black

Very disappointed with the noise cancelling. It is very difficult with the foam tips to get a good seal, I have tried changing tips to no avail. In addition the blue tooth connection drops off intermittently. I have since bought the new Bose Ultra earbuds which are infinitely better in every respect. Returned these twice to Sony who state they are working fine. Plenty of evidence now on the web that the foam tips may not be suitable for some people making the earphones totally useless if noice cancelling is important to you.

For the price I was expecting more

Colour: Black

For the price I was expecting quality, and for the most part that is what I got. The battery is good, my ears start to chaff before they hit 70%. A bit disgusting, but even after thoroughly cleaning my ears almost daily it still collects wax so be warned. Noise cancelling is the same as if you just put ear plugs in and the transparency mode is kinda cool, picks up the swishing of fabric and faint bird song you normally wouldn't notice. Overall the build quality is very good.

Good buds

Colour: Black

Great sound quality. Fit well in ears havnt had them fall out. App is buggy and sometimes needs resetting to get them to work.
Working great under the motorcycle helmet on noise cancelling for quiet food sound.

Noise cancelling and voice playback dosent work if it's windy and they are not covered. But you can use them perfectly in wind without those features enabled

Great sound clarity and very comfortable

Colour: Black

I upgraded from the Linkbuds-S and it's a good step up if you want the better noise cancelling.
Music has good base with perfect clarity through the mids and high with robust noise cancelling.
Ear buds tips are very comfortable, I can use them for hours on end no problem.
After running the "Determine Optimal Earbud Tips" function in the the app and getting the correct size tip installed these went from great to awesome!
The only thing I think could have been better is the surface of the buds is shiny and a little slippery so need to be careful when removing from your ears.

They Keep falling out of my ears

Colour: Black

I need to stick them in and then twist them upwards to try and have them stay in my ears for any length of time and then it's only a matter of time before they still drop our on the gravity of their own weight. It doesn't seem to matter which size air cushions I put on them either. I see I am not the only person who experiences this too. Sound quality and functionality is good however while they are in.

Consider other products

Colour: Black

I want to give a 1-star for the following reasons:

1) The connection keeps dropping, irrespective of the technical method chosen in the Sony headphone app (there is a feature for high-fidelity audio OR more stable connectivity)

2) ANC is really comparable to a PASSIVE Noise Cancelling. I have an OLD Bose QuietComfort 20, and walking on the streets with any of these results in the same level of sound cancelling: you can still hear all sounds (and YES, I constantly check if it is activated and if the earbuds are deep into the ear channel)

Get them if you aren't upgrading

Colour: Black

I had the XM3 earbuds for 4+ years and finally upgraded. These are not worth the upgrade, the only difference I can ACTUALLY notice (yes sound quality may be better but as a user you won't notice the difference unless side by side, they both sound good) is they fit in your ear better so you don't have to adjust them as much and the battery life. Unless you use these all day you really don't need 24 hours of battery considering it comes with a charger case.

We are at the point in technology where we get small increments but companies still sell as if it's 2004 and each new product is a massive change, it really isn't. I am legit disappoint...view more

Features



The Best Noise Cancelling*

The WF-1000XM5 reduces external noise over a wide bandwidth, from low to high frequencies. It contains two proprietary processors that cancel more external noise than ever, a new high-performance driver unit Dynamic Driver X, dual feedback microphones, and innovative Noise Isolation Earbud Tips for a more stable fit. Real-time noise-cancelling processing can be optimised to provide the best performance for your environment, so you will hear a big difference, especially in aeroplanes, trains, or buses. 

*As of April 10, 2023. Ambient noise reduction according to research by Sony Corporation, measured using JEITA-compliant guidelines for the top 10 brands (by market share) of truly wireless style of noise-cancelling headphones market.

 

Multi Noise Sensor technology

Three microphones on each earbud, including dual feedback mics, improve low-frequency cancellation performance. This is our biggest ever step forward in noise cancelling, resulting in ambient sound captured even more accurately. So you can enjoy one of our purest sounds.

 

Unbeatable Noise Cancellation*

Exclusively developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V2 unlocks the full potential of our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e. This 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.

*As of April 10, 2023. Ambient noise reduction according to research by Sony Corporation, measured using JEITA-compliant guidelines for the top 10 brands (by market share) of truly wireless style of noise-cancelling headphones market.

 

New high-quality sound and noise cancelling driver unit

The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X able to reproduce lower frequencies has been improved using a dome-edge separation structure that combines different materials, allowing for a more accurate generation of cancellation waves in the lower frequencies.

 

Feel a more stable fitting earbud

Noise Isolation Earbud Tips feature a unique polyurethane foam material which reduces noise in the high-frequency range. Soft and elastic, they maximise the contact area between the earbud tip and the ear canal, insulating your sound and reducing noise. It also improves adhesion to the ear canal for a more secure, stable fit.

 

Astonishing sound quality

The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X provides wide frequency reproduction, enabling deeper bass, subtle vocals and enhanced fine detail, especially on high-pitched instruments. The consummate performance, across the full range of frequencies, delivers a smooth and natural sound regardless of what you're listening to.

 

Enjoy richer, more detailed vocals

Thanks to a specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X for wide frequency reproduction, you will experience richer vocals and enhanced fine details. The diaphragm structure combines several different materials for the dome and the edge, achieving low distortion and a clear sound quality.

 

Designed for less distortion

By combining our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e and Integrated Processor V2, the WF-1000XM5 incorporates precision 24-bit audio processing and high-performance analogue amplification. The result is low distortion and crystal clear audio reproduction.

 

Enjoy High-Resolution Audio

The WF-1000XM5 supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC™, our industry-adopted audio coding technology. LDAC™ transmits approximately three times more data* than conventional Bluetooth® audio for exceptional High-Resolution Audio quality** that is closer than ever to the studio recording.

*At the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps.
**You need to set the function to "Priority on Sound Quality" using the Sony | Headphones Connect app. Compatible devices supporting LDAC will be required.

 

AI technology for precision sound

Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™* upscales compressed digital music files in real-time, including those from popular streaming services. It dynamically recognises each song's instrumentation, musical genre and individual elements, and restores high-range sound lost in compression.

*Activate the DSEE Extreme™ from the Sony | Headphones Connect app.

A = Expanded audio dynamics (strings and whisper-quiet subtleties)
B = Restored high frequencies (acoustic and vocal instrument realism)

 

Head-tracking function

Head tracking ensures a realistic and compelling listening experience by automatically adjusting sound fields to compensate for your head movement. Sounds are precisely aligned with your smartphone screen, even as you move, to completely involve you in your viewing by connecting to compatible smartphones/services*.

*You can experience spatial sound content (like Netflix, YouTube) with Android 13 smartphones capable of head tracking. Also, you can experience 360 Reality Audio content with Xperia 1 V on 360 Reality Audio Live app, such as nugs.net or TIDAL. Some services may not be available in certain countries/regions.

Conventional use
With conventional headphones, when your head moves, the sound moves with the headphones. This disconnects the sound from its position in space, impairing the 3D effect and presence.

 

With head-tracking capability
With head tracking, when you move your head, the sound field retains its original position in 3D space - for a realistic viewing and listening experience

 

Certified headphones for a personalised experience

With 360 Reality Audio certified headphones and the Sony | Headphones Connect app, optimise your experience by analysing your individual ear shape, and enjoy the ultimate immersive music experience.

Sony's best ever call quality*

Thanks to an AI-based noise reduction algorithm based on Deep Neural Network (DNN) processing, and bone conduction sensors, your voice will come through clear and more natural, even in a noisy environment. And if you're outdoors, the noise reduction structure will minimise any wind whooshes, so you always know you'll be heard.

*As of June 26th 2023, in truly wireless headphones.

 

Detects speech vibrations to enhance clarity

Bone conduction sensors pick up the vibration of your voice directly from your skull bones, helping to isolate your speech from ambient sounds and background noise, for clear calls in even loud environments.

 

Mute the outside world for clear call quality

With Precise Voice Pickup Technology and advanced audio signal processing, the person on the other end of the call will hear your voice clearly, even when you are in noisy situations. Our noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using more than 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise, increase accuracy and extract your voice clearly in various environments.

 

Always hear and be heard

A wind noise reduction structure and a mesh wrap in the microphone will minimise noise during calls so you can be heard clearly in windy conditions.

 

Small and beautifully designed

With an improved glossy texture and a more luxurious feel, these earbuds fit comfortably in your ears while keeping out external sounds. By downsizing the headphone body and optimising the placement of the components, the earbud is now approximately 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the WF-1000XM4. We've also reduced the size of the charging case, so it will sit even more sleekly in your pocket.

 

Comfortable and secure

Our WF-1000XM5 earbuds feature a shape that perfectly matches the human ear with an ergonomic design for a more stable fit. We've designed the WF-1000XM5 utilising extensive ear-shape data collated since introducing the world's first in-ear headphones in 1982. Our continuous evaluation of different ear shapes and sensitivities has helped us design an ideal earbud shape, secure and comfortable for almost everybody.

 

A comfortable fit and better sound insulation

New Noise Isolation Earbud Tips are made from an exclusive material that improves fitting and increases comfort thanks to reduced pressure in the ear due to a newly designed shape. The earbuds come in four sizes, including SS.

 

Smooth switching

For total convenience, the WF-1000XM5 can be paired with two Bluetooth® devices simultaneously so, when a call comes in, your headphones can automatically connect to the right one. With the multipoint connection you can quickly switch to a ringing device, then back by simply resuming playback on the other device.

 

A clear, stable Bluetooth signal

These earbuds utilise a powerful new Integrated Processor V2, which transmits a Bluetooth signal simultaneously to and from both ears, so you can enjoy a stable sound.
These earbuds are ready for LE Audio (Beta version), a next generation Bluetooth audio that enables ultra low latency - ideal for gaming*.

*Feature requires firmware update. Feature requires connection to a compatible smartphone, Xperia 1 IV / Xperia 5 IV, availability may vary by region.

A) Conventional L to R Relay BT Transmission.
B) WF-1000XM5 L/R Simultaneous BT Transmission

 

Adjusts to the world around you

Adaptive Sound Control senses where you are and what you're doing, then uses AI to change ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. Over time, it will learn your behaviour, recognise locations you visit often, and tailor the sound to suit your location.

 

A new sound experience for AR gaming

If you're looking for new entertainment options beyond music and movies, the WF-1000XM5 uses new sensors and spatial sound technology to deliver immersive sound for Augmented Reality games like "Ingress" from Niantic*,**.

When playing "Ingress" with the WF-1000XM5, sensor and spatial sound technologies deliver a new experience: using head tracking, the sound is conveyed from different directions to line up perfectly with the action on the screen.

*The service may not be available in some countries/regions.
**Feature requires firmware update, available in the summer 2023.
