While it was enjoying an excellent promotion just a few days ago, the Sony WH-1000XM5, aka the headphones with the best noise reduction on the market, is an even better deal thanks to the French Days. The reduction does not last long, however, so you have to decide quickly to take advantage of this price of 315 euros instead of 419.99 euros at Darty.
While the Sony WH-1000XM4 was an excellent reference at the time of its release (still rated 9/10 during our test), the Sony WH-1000XM5 manages to do even better even if it relies mainly on on his laurels. During the French Days, the ultimate noise reduction headphones were sure to have a great promotion and it did so at Darty where it is more than 100 euros cheaper.

Where to buy
Sony WH-1000XM5 at the best price?
A more stylish helmet, but less practical
Overall, the Sony WH-1000XM5 is mostly resting on its laurels, but there is one thing that has radically changed on this model: its design. The contours have been redesigned with a thinner and more flexible arch than before, however, the Japanese manufacturer is taking a step backward by removing the possibility of folding on itself, and therefore being able to be stored more easily in a bag. Otherwise, comfort is still present and the felted matte coating gives a nice effect.
The WH-1000XM5 is as comfortable as it is durable. Sony announces for its best headphones a battery life of 30 hours with active noise reduction and 40 hours without this feature. This is the same autonomy as the Sony WH-1000XM4 and this was confirmed during our test, we were able to use this headset for 30h17 before it fell flat. Recharging is done using a USB-C cable but you should not be in a hurry since 3h30 are necessary to recover the full battery life.
Simply remarkable noise reduction
This is THE strong point of the Sony WH-1000XM5, its noise reduction which is probably the best on the market. While most headsets rely on two or four microphones, the WH-1000XM5 uses eight microphones. In addition, these are covered with a fabric that filters wind gusts and prevents unwanted noise. And, as this is not enough for the title of best, Sony has added an atmospheric pressure sensor and an environmental analysis function so that this headset offers the best possible noise reduction in all circumstances.
Finally, the Sony WH-1000XM5 has 30 mm transducers while its predecessor relied on 40 mm transducers, if we expect a less powerful and dynamic sound, this is not the case since the structure of the speakers has also changed. The sound is at the same level as the WH-1000XM4, it is even more precise and more natural. Finally, multipoint Bluetooth is compatible with classic codecs: SBC, AAC and LDAC.
