When you’re looking for the absolute best in terms of Bluetooth or noise-cancelling headphones, look no further than the Sony WH-1000XM5. This awesome headphone is packed with all the latest audio and lifestyle-enhancing features you could need in a pair of Bluetooth over-ears.
The Ultimate Noise Cancellation Headphone
The Sony WH-1000XM5 offer superior noise-cancelling capabilities with the help of the newly-developed integrated Processor V1 and QN1 HD Noise Cancelling Processor. 8 microphones, four on each earcup, precisely capture ambient sounds resulting in a significant reduction of noise. The noise-cancelling performance is constantly optimised by the Auto NC Optimiser, which takes into account the atmospheric pressure and wearing conditions.
Listen to the Best
Sony's 30mm driver unit with a soft edge is designed to give you a clear listening experience without any background noise. The use of carbon fibre composite material in constructing the lightweight and highly rigid dome of the unit enhances sound clarity, especially in high-frequency sounds. This specific driver unit is created to increase high-frequency sensitivity, resulting in more realistic sound quality.
Designed with the Best
Sony utilises various technologies, such as a premium lead-free solder with gold for excellent conductivity, a Fine Sound Resistor for uniform power distribution and optimised circuitry for a better signal-to-noise ratio to provide a clear and consistent audio performance.
Hi-Res Audio Wherever You Go
Experience high-resolution audio even wirelessly with LDAC, a widely recognised audio coding technology. LDAC transfers about three times more data than standard Bluetooth audio codecs, which results in exceptional high-resolution audio quality.
AI For Even Better Audio Performance
DSEE Extreme is an Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology that can upscale compressed digital music files in real time. It restores high-range sound lost in compression by using advanced algorithms to recognise musical genres, instruments and individual elements of each song.
Pick-ups Only What You Want
The WH-1000XM5 use Precise Voice Pickup Technology, which includes four beamforming microphones and an AI noise reduction algorithm, to isolate and enhance your voice. A new wind noise reduction structure also helps to reduce wind noise during calls. This technology ensures that you can hear and be heard clearly in any environment.
Be Heard Clearly
Thanks to an improved signal-to-noise ratio, the four microphones are calibrated to pick up your voice with high accuracy, even in noisy surroundings. The noise reduction algorithm, which was developed using AI machine learning and over 500 million voice samples, is effective in a wide range of settings and will suppress ambient noise to provide clear voice output during calls.
Adapts to Your Surrounding
Adaptive Sound Control modifies ambient sound settings according to your location and activities. It also analyses your routine and identifies your frequently visited places to adjust the music accordingly.
Smart Sensors That Understand You
Speak-to-Chat instantly pauses your music when you start talking so that you can communicate hands-free while wearing your headphones. It utilises the Sony WH-1000XM5's built-in microphones and advanced audio signal processing to recognise and react to your voice and resumes the music automatically once you're done talking. When you remove the headphones, they automatically stop playing music, thanks to a capacitive sensor that recognises when they're not being worn.
2-Device Pairing, 30-Hour Battery Life
Connect to two devices at the same time with the Sony WH-1000XM5. It recognises which device is ringing when you receive a call and connects automatically. You can also switch between the two devices by pressing a button. With a battery life of 30 hours, it's perfect for long journeys. If you need a quick charge, you can charge it for three hours in only three minutes with a USB-PD-compliant AC adapter.
Blazing Fast Pairing
Fast Pair allows you to easily connect your WH-1000XM5 to your Android devices while Swift Pair lets you connect them to your Windows 10 or Windows 11 computer with just one tap. You can also quickly locate your headphones by calling them or checking their last known location on your smartphone.
Built to Be Snug
The WH-1000XM5 are designed with a lightweight and comfortable soft-fit leather material that blocks out external noise while fitting snugly around the head to reduce ear pressure. The headphones' stepless slider, seamless swivel, and headband offer a pleasant noiseless experience while wearing them.
Protects Your Hearing
You can determine if you're listening to music at safe sound pressure levels based on data recorded by the Sony WH-1000XM5, in accordance with the World Health Organization's recommendations with the Sony | Headphones Connect App.
Customise your headphones with Quick Access to quickly resume your Spotify music with just a few taps without touching your phone. Voice assistants like ‘Google’ or ‘Alexa’ offer hands-free assistance with tasks such as listening to music, receiving notifications, and setting reminders. The WH-1000XM5 also features intuitive touch controls to switch between noise cancelling and ambient sound, play or pause music, skip tracks and adjust the volume.

Its best wired headphone i have ever owned.
This demo unit is as perfect as the original one. The sound quality, the bass, everything is best.
For the price point of 245 rupees the quality is good.
The proliferation of the 4.4 mm (Pentaconn) connector on the output side of amps and DAPs has not been matched on the input side, except for few iFi products. The 4.4 to dual XLR is hence like heaven-sent. And TheAudioStore price is simply unbeatable.
I think earphones are just good. They are light, very minimal design, comfortable for long listening hours, sound quality is crystal clear, cable quality is also good, buttons don't work unless you have a quality converter or DAC. It has mic, what more you want. Overall it is a decent earphone.
It is my first IEM, it has good sound, first impression will be bad but as you will listen , it will be very pleasant. Use special one eartips
Friends, this is the best dac out there for the price and rightly said, it leaves no competition behind. Go for it without any second thought and this is no boasting but Pritam Ji is a good man and he will guide you in case you seek any advice.
I have been using the normal earbud style earphones earphones from ambrane, portronics etc which are priced at below 400Rs and decided to upgrade to the VE monk plus, the difference in sound clarity is easily differentiable. there is clear separation in the base, vocals etc. I guess once you use better earphones, you understand the difference in audio quality. I purchased the without mic version as i needed an earphone that works with My nokia express music 5310 as modern earphones with mic are not supported.
The HiBy R6 Pro II is an absolute triumph in terms of build and sound quality, but it wins at the cost of battery life (5.5-7.5 hours). If you're able to accommodate this design choice, I believe you'd be hard-pressed to find a better DAP for under $1000.
The R6 Pro II is built like a tank and looks stunning in purple. Album artwork pops on the crisp 2K display, and I've yet to encounter bugs with the rock-solid implementation of Android 12. Although it runs warm during operation (especially Class A mode), it's not been an issue thus far.
The AKM chipset offers musicality against a pitch-black background without compromising on neutrality. Its MSEB feature provides ample customization options and enables listeners to tweak the sound as per their preferences. The soundstage width is already excellent, and I hope the depth improves after burn-in to lend more of a holographic experience.
Works as intended!
It is amazing. The sound quality and the look both.
Sony does not disappoint with the NW-A306. I like the customization possibilities and the android interface.
The shell is big bit somehow very comfortable fo extended use. The sound signature is about what I expected soo no complaints there. The only thing is I'm not a big fan of l connectors but that's a minor gripe.
This is my first IEM and my mind is blown by the audio quality of it and also the premium feel and built quality of the IEM which is made by Zr ceramic. It not only looks and feels good but also the clarity, passive noise cancellation, and comfort are good. Definitely a 10/10 and would suggest the people to buy it. The gift packaging it came into was also very thoughtful from the side of 'The audio store' people and was impressed by it.
