Ambient sound is captured even more accurately for a dramatic reduction in high frequency noise. Thanks to Auto NC Optimizer, noise canceling performance is always and 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 eight 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 light and rigid driver improves sound clarity and bass reproduction. Magnificent sound, engineered to perfection The light and rigid precision-engineered driver unit improves high frequency sensitivity for more natural sound quality. Sony 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. 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.
