Sony WH-1000XM5 review

10 min read

In August of 2020, Sony released what would become the best noise-cancelling headphones: the WH-1000XM4. As rumors circulated about a next-gen version hitting the market in late Spring 2022, all I could ask myself is why? The WH-1000XM4 remains the model to beat. 

Nonetheless, Sony pulled the trigger and gave us the WH-1000XM5 with an all-new design and some hardware upgrades. These include dual processors, twice as many microphones, and a carbon-fiber 30mm driver. Proprietary technologies such as 360 Reality Audio, Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) Extreme, and LDAC are all accounted for. And you get access to a plethora of features via the Sony Headphones Connect app.
