I’ll be the first one to declare my love for wireless earbuds. They’re so small and easy to throw right into my pocket.

But a great pair of over-the-ear wireless headphones can outshine even some of the best earbuds. This is because they typically can bring the highest levels of audio quality and comfortability.

So what’s a good pair of over-the-ear headphones? Let’s check out the upcoming Sony WH-1000XM5.

Sony’s new headphones cancel environmental noise

Features industry-leading Active Noise Cancelation

Immersion is important in listening to music, playing a video game, or enjoying your favorite movie or TV show. Active Noise Cancelation (ANC) is one of the most important aspects of enhancing immersion when experiencing audio. This is because isolating what you want to hear and shutting out distracting background noise is beneficial to your overall listening experience.

The Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones ensure that you hear only what matters by helping eliminate unwanted sounds. They use industry-leading technology to do this, including 8 microphones, a new Auto NC Optimizer, a new 30 mm driver, and the HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1. It’s impressive.

Deliver superior sound engineering and Edge-AI

Sony’s new wireless headphones also provide superior sound engineering and deliver some of the best audio available right now. For example, they use a precision-engineered driver, lead-free solder with gold that enhances conduction, a Fine Sounds Resistor, and optimized circuitry.

There’s also LDAC technology for greater wireless audio clarity. Edge-AI and DSEE Extreme have the ability to upscale compressed music tracks and restore their natural, original sound. Lastly, 360 Reality Audio, Dolby Atmos, and the 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer add a whole new dimension to your experience.

Brings super-clear hands-free calling and voice control

It’s likely safe to say you may want to make or receive calls at times while using the WH-1000XM5 headphones. Thankfully, Sony keeps it simple with hands-free calling. You can use voice control to answer and make calls while listening to music, and 4 beamforming microphones plus Precise Voice Pickup Technology make calls crystal clear.

Voice control lets you use Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa fluidly while using the headphones. You can instantly pause or play music and just about any other task these voice assistants allow. Setting reminders or hearing notifications are also available options.

Offer fast device pairing and long-lasting battery life

One benefit to Sony’s new headphones that anyone can appreciate is their fast device pairing capabilities. Using Google’s Fast Pair technology, they can connect more seamlessly to other devices, and you can even locate them using a tone sound. Additionally, long-lasting battery life provides as many as 30 hours of playtime and up to 3 hours per 3 minutes of charge (using fast charging).
