Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise Canceling Over-Ear Headphones (Silver)

Your World. Nothing Else.

The WH-1000XM5 headphones rewrite the rules for distraction-free listening. 2 processors control 8 microphones for unprecedented noise cancellation and exceptional call quality. With a newly developed driver, DSEE – Extreme and Hi-Res audio support the WH-1000XM5 headphones provide awe-inspiring audio quality.

These noise-canceling headphones get even better

See how the WH-1000XM5 noise-canceling headphones combine our best ever noise-canceling technology with superlative sound for a truly remarkable listening experience.

Industry-leading noise Cancellation

From airplane noise to people’s voices, our WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones with 8 microphones for noise cancellation keep out more high and mid-frequency sounds than ever. And with the new Auto NC Optimizer, noise-canceling is automatically optimized based on your wearing conditions and environment.

Multi Noise Sensor Technology

With 8 total microphones, these headphones are our biggest step forward in noise-canceling technology. Ambient sound is captured even more accurately for a dramatic reduction in high-frequency noise. Thanks to the new Auto NC Optimizer, noise-canceling performance is always automatically optimized based on wearing conditions and external environmental factors such as atmospheric pressure.

Incomparable noise processing

Specially developed by Sony, the Integrated Processor V1 unlocks the full potential of our HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1. This unique combination of technology controls 8 microphones to deliver unprecedented noise-canceling quality.

Newly designed driver

A new 30mm precision-engineered driver unit featuring a soft TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) edge enhances noise canceling, especially in low-frequency ranges, helping you enjoy your music precisely without ambient noise. The carbon fiber composite material is lightweight and the high rigidity dome improves sound clarity, especially in high-frequency ranges.

Magnificent sound, engineered to perfection

The light and rigid precision-engineered driver unit improves high-frequency sensitivity for more natural sound quality. Sony's unique technologies include a premium lead-free solder containing gold for excellent conductivity, Fine Sound Resistor for even power distribution, and optimized circuitry for an improved signal-to-noise ratio to ensure clear, consistent sound. The WH-1000XM5 supports High-Resolution Audio and High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC, our industry-adopted audio coding technology. Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ upscales compressed digital music files in real-time.

Crystal Clear hands-free calling

With Precise Voice Pickup Technology and advanced audio signal processing, the person on the other end of the call will hear your voice clearly, even when you are in noisy situations. Our noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using more than 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise and extract your voice clearly in a wide range of environments.

4 microphones, focused on your voice

Equipped with 4 beamforming microphones, the WH-1000XM5 headphones are calibrated to only pick up your voice. An improved signal-to-noise ratio enables them to catch every single word, even when there’s a lot of noise around.


As soon as you start a conversation, Speak-to-Chat automatically stops your music and lets in ambient sound – handy if you want to keep your headphones on or talk hands-free. This smart feature uses microphones built into your headphones and advanced audio signal processing to recognize and react to your voice. Once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.

Voice Control and Instant Pause'/Play

Just take the headphones off and the music stops – a capacitive sensor knows when you are wearing them. It also helps improve detection accuracy and design. Just say “OK Google” or “Alexa” to activate your preferred voice assistant. Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders, and more.

Multipoint Connection

For total convenience, these Bluetooth® headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time.9 So when a call comes in, your headphones know which device is ringing and connects to the right one automatically. You’ll also be able to quickly switch your headphones to either of the two devices at the touch of a button.

All day comfort with an elegant design

These lightweight headphones are beautifully finished in newly developed soft-fit leather. This material fits snugly around the head with less pressure on the ears while keeping out external sounds. Our elegant design with stepless slider, seamless swivel and hanger, and silent joints, makes WH-1000XM5 a pleasure to wear.

All day power and quick charging

With up to 30 hours of battery life, you’ll have enough power even for long trips. If you need to charge in a hurry, you can get 3 hours worth of charge after just 3 minutes with an additional USB-PD compatible AC adapter.10,2

Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise Canceling Over-Ear Headphones (Silver) SKU: WH1000XM5S

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones with the sound I was looking for Had the headphones for about a month I think and while I have not had a lot of time to learn to use them properly I have nonetheless found them to be just what I was looking for!
Date published: 2024-04-01
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sound quality OK, everything else, NO GOOD I tired to pair with two devices, Macbook and iPone. Noise cancellation is not as good as Bose QC ultra, Sound quality is not as good as B&O H9. Cannot wear it more than 1 hour. volume level will change itself, even with pre-set via APP. touch feature is not good, up and down direction has to be specific. and the app is funny and complicated to use. Feature is not as good as described. NOT recommend to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. Nice round sound. Great seller I purchased them from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty advanced noise cancelation. The only downside is the app functionality, it regularly needs to be reset as if just installed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from all great but one Everything is good, But one thing. And that every time that I close the door on any car, It bugs up and makes a high pitch noise for a solid second. Other than that, It nice and good condition from packaging

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bluetooth headphones with wired capabilities These headphones are very comfortable, have really great sound, and the noise-cancelling is awesome once it starts. It takes a couple of seconds for the headphones to analyze the ambient noise, but once it starts its noise cancellation it does a really good job. The app is pretty intuitive, although I’m unsure how much the ear analysis does. I’ve yet to experience the directional sound. I upgraded my just to try this feature, but either they have not yet encoded the music to make use of the technology, or the technology simply doesn’t work. But in all honesty these are stilll great headphones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing headphones but construction needs improvem I bought these and by far the most amazing headphones I've ever had but the construction is bad they broke after just 2 months of owning it
Date published: 2024-02-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Headphones! OK, so I just got them, and only have about 2 hours of use so far, but the sound stage, and noise isolation on these are amazing. Great headphones, I am not an Audiophile by any means, but I am very pleased.
Date published: 2024-02-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still The Best! XM2, XM3, XM4 and now XM5. Still the Best sounding wireless NC headphones!
Date published: 2024-02-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality headphones!!! I bought these a month ago and love them! My Beats headphones snapped trying to put them on my head and I never feel that fear when I'm about to put them on so love the design. The sound quality is really good with the exception of max volume (those around you can hear) but for your hearing, you probably shouldn't listen to anything at max volume. Since buying these I've worn them to work out, commute in, and listen to music while I work. Overall, I would recommend these to anyone looking for good noise-cancelling headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knorris Well I’m going to buy the 77 inch Sony TV in March so I thought I would purchase these headphones because they will be able to match up and I can hear attach them or connect to the TV and able to adjust the sound in my headphones, so I have been using these to listen to music and the sound and quality is unbelievable. I am very happy with my purchase.
Date published: 2024-01-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Headphones! I do notice that these headphones make the music more "live" so to speak. The head tracking works very well and is rather seemless with head turning.
Date published: 2024-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have a number of useful features that work for me I like these a lot. They fit my needs. They sound good. Connect with my devices. Have an app that I can customize settings. Are comfortable. Have a number of useful features that work for me like the different levels of pass through sound. I use these daily on walks, at work, or just around the house. If I could have one feature it would be for the cup to rotate down instead of up when around my neck. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound with one flaw These headphones have great sound and superb bass response. They also have excellent noise cancelling. The one major flaw is with the earpads. If I am wearing my glasses (which I do the majority of my waking hours) while listening to these headphones I get this rubbing/squeaking nose if I walking around or moving around or eating. This also happens when I use the headphones on Zoom calls whenever I talk. It's bearable for the most part but it definitely gets annoying after a while.
Date published: 2024-01-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just need a little more thump I got the headphones a month ago and was amazed by the noise reduction. I can run my lawnmower and it cuts out 90 percent of the noise, amazing. I tried some other much higher priced headphones and they didn’t sound as good as the Sony headphones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sounds great but Great sounding headphones but not the greatest for working out. Headphones get very warm and your ears sweat
Date published: 2023-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony 1000MX5 headphones Had these cans for about a week now. Just really still learning how to use them. The sound quality is very good and ANC is pretty good. Really like them as they are more comfortable than buds, but sound is better on the buds.
Date published: 2023-11-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very bad engineered Extremely bad engineered. Very cheap build even though they cost 300 plus! Everyone has the same problem with the swivel popped out ! Another thing is very bad instructions for finding the serial number and model number.
Date published: 2023-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound and microphone I currently own the Bose QC Ultra and recently purchased the 1000XM5. The sound is exceptional on both but where Sony beats Bose is on phone calls. The microphone on the Sony's 1000XM5 is far superior than the microphone on the Bose QC Ultra.
Date published: 2023-11-14
Rated 2 out of 5 by from The 2 versions before were better Ok. I love this brand and usually these headphones, that's why I spend so much on them. This new version, I felt like they were so good for so long that they tried to give you everything but the kitchen sink in this pair. The noise canceling is horrendous because I can walk by someone talking and they'll automatically stop. God help you if you attempt to cut grass or vacuum with them on. Even the adjustment in the app didn't help
Date published: 2023-11-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy to navigate. Bought these a couple of days ago and so far everything is great.
Date published: 2023-11-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise cancellation is amazingly Researched multiple products and found Sony to out perform the rest.
Date published: 2023-10-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded all my expectations I bought this amazing headphones for me like 7 days ago, I’m still surprised by the quality of the sound
Date published: 2023-10-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noise canceling ain't it I bought my first pair a month or so ago and the noise canceling wasn't good at all, noise kept being filtered in. I couldn't even notice any difference from the noise canceling setting and the ambient setting. They both sounded exactly the same with the outside world being loud. Got them replaced with a newer pair through customer service but they both have the same issue, I'm guessing all of them are like this at this point. They are really comfortable tho at least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Great Sound Great noise cancelling Most comfortable headphones ever
Date published: 2023-10-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good and Solid Tested them all. This is the best one I tried so far.
Date published: 2023-10-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poorly Made I purchased the headphone and it worked decently but it seems to be poorly made and one of the side starting chipping out for no reason and I am not even a heavy user. The only reasonable explanation could highly likely the poor manufacturing process and materials.
Date published: 2023-10-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding headphones I purchased these headphones 1 month ago all I can say is there just awesome , I happen to own many different pairs and these buy far are the best ones I would recommend great sound the noise canceling is outstanding what I really like is the Sony App it really has some great features , don’t pass this up you won’t regret it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance Super Sound, nice and conftable. I love it, Great sound, the noise cancelling is not the best but it will do, but the quality across the PC, is great! I do have problems to conect with the blutooth on the PC all the time.
Date published: 2023-09-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony is the best! I have owned Bose, Sennheiser and obviously Sony. Sony stands out in terms of performance as well as price.
