A drastic design change
Sony’s latest headset, the WH-1000XM5, brings a real breath of fresh air by changing its appearance. Always well designed, the XM5 offers a more minimalist and refined appearance than before, but also has a more refined and flexible headband. If its “felt” matte coating has an effect, this design change prevents it from folding up, which is quite a shame.
Comfort is there, but after several hours you may feel a pressure point at the level of the arch, the padding still manages to reduce the discomfort caused. As for the leatherette pads, they completely encompass the ears and ensure good passive isolation.
Still excellent noise reduction, with some improvements
Already excellent on the XM4, Sony goes even further by adding eight microphones on the XM5 against four on the previous one. Added to this, an atmospheric pressure sensor to detect if the user is on a plane, as well as a technical fabric on the microphones to filter gusts of wind and prevent them from being transcribed into the loudspeakers. speakers.
Call quality has also been improved. With the help of four microphones and AI, the 1000XM5 best isolates your voice from ambient noise and captures your voice clearly without distortion. At the level of the transducers, we go from a diameter of 40 mm to a diameter of 30 mm. According to the brand, they are stiffer and lighter thanks to carbon fiber. The sound reproduction is close to the WH-1000XM4, but the XM5 displays even more precision and offers a “more natural” rendering, but with less bass highlighted. Otherwise, we find the three Bluetooth audio codecs SBC, AAC and LDAC. The headset also features Sony’s DSEE Extreme algorithm, as well as multipoint Bluetooth compatibility.
A durable helmet
To be able to enjoy your music, podcast or movies, Sony provides on its headphones up to 30 hours with noise reduction activated and 40 hours without. Promises kept since during our test, the Sony WH-1000XM5 was able to last for 30h17 before it ran out of battery. As for charging, it will take place quickly via USB-C. You can thus gain 3 hours of listening time in just 3 minutes of charging.
