Product details

Sony has taken industry-leading noise cancelling to the next level. Four microphones in each ear cup detect ambient noise even more precisely to reduce high-frequency noise to a much greater extent.
The integrated V1 processor fully exploits the potential QN1 HD processor for noise cancelling and offers an unprecedented quality in noise reduction. Sony's unique technologies include a high-quality lead-free solder with gold for excellent conductive properties, a Fine Sound Resistor for even power distribution, and optimized circuitry for improved signal-to-noise ratio for clear, rich sound.
With LDAC, High-Resolution Audio and High-Resolution Audio Wireless are supported. This transfers about 3 times more data than conventional Bluetooth audio for outstanding sound quality. These headphones promise industry-leading call quality, so you'll be able to hear clearly when you're on the phone and hear the person you're talking to clearly. Precise voice pickup technology with four beamforming microphones and artificial intelligence-based noise reduction algorithm accurately isolates your voice. Wind noise reduction structure also minimizes wind noise during phone calls. Intelligent adaptive noise control detects where you are and what you are doing, and adjusts ambient noise settings accordingly for an ideal listening experience. Intelligent Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses the music and switches to ambient sound when you're talking to someone. This is especially handy when you don't have a hand free. Take off the headphones and the music stops playing. A sensor detects when you're wearing the headphones. For maximum convenience, these Bluetooth headphones can be paired with two devices at once. The headphones detect the device when a call comes in and automatically select it. With support for Google's useful Fast Pair feature, you can quickly find your headphones if you ever misplace them: either via the audible signal or via the "Find My Device" smartphone app. Swift Pair makes it effortless to pair the headphones with a laptop, desktop PC or tablet running Windows 11 or Windows 10. With a long battery life of 30 hours, you can listen to music even on long trips. Need to charge quickly? After 3 minutes of charging via the compatible USB-PD power adapter, you can use the headphones for another 3 hours. The WH-1000XM5 come with a foldable soft case for easy storage.

ImTestder Klang der StilleReleaseApril 2024

The IMTEST comparison test shows that although more expensive doesn't necessarily mean better, the red pencil is clearly noticeable, especially with a very affordable model like the Soundcore Space Q45. There is a lack of sound quality, but savings are also noticeable in the microphones and ANC...

ImTest5 Over-In-Kopfhörer im TestReleaseMarch 2024

Modern over-ear headphones are good sound all-rounders. The Technics EAH-A800 won the test thanks to their long battery life, great sound and a powerful app. The solid Space One from Soundcore deliver a lot of headphones for little money.
