A headphone you’ll always want to take with you, the WH-1000XM5 finds Sony fine-tuning its flagship wireless active noise cancelling design to great effect. A new-look, lightweight chassis features comfortable, cushioned earcups that keep unwanted sounds out without applying too much pressure. Inside, 30mm drivers have been designed with noise-cancelling in mind and deliver a refined sound with remarkable detail in the mid and higher ranges – codec-wise you can choose from LDAC, AAC and SBC. Four microphones ensure crisp voice calls, with another quartet deployed for recognition and reduction of external noise, so this headphone triumphs in the busiest of environments. Sony’s smartphone app leverages a wide range of functions, turning the WH-1000XM5 into the ultimate daily workhorse.
