Sony has unveiled its latest flagship TWS earbuds, the Sony WF-1000XM5, in India. These earbuds are a significant upgrade from their predecessor, the WF-1000XM4, boasting a more compact design and improved noise-cancellation performance. The WF-1000XM5 earbuds are approximately 25% smaller and lighter than their predecessor, making them more comfortable for extended use.
The Sony WF-1000XM5 features three microphones on each earbud, including dual feedback mics, which enhance low-frequency cancellation performance. The Integrated Processor V2, a new development by Sony, works in tandem with the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e to control the six microphones across both ears. This unique combination delivers unprecedented noise-canceling quality adaptable to provide optimal performance in any environment.

These features, along with head-tracking technology, provide an immersive listening experience like no other. The earbuds offer up to 8 hours of battery life and an additional 16 hours with the charging case. A quick charging feature ensures you get 60 minutes of playtime with just a 3-minute charge.
The earbuds are also water-resistant with an IPX4 rating, making them suitable for use during workouts or in light rain.
