Sony India has exciting news for audiophiles, as they announce an upcoming firmware update for the highly acclaimed WH-1000XM5 (review) headphones. This update aims to elevate the audio quality and application compatibility of these sought-after headphones, promising a sound experience akin to a live concert.

LDAC and Multipoint Connections

One notable addition is LDAC™ during multipoint connections, allowing users to enjoy high-quality audio on multiple devices simultaneously. This showcases Sony’s commitment to delivering an exceptional sound experience.

With High-Resolution Audio and High-Resolution Audio Wireless support, thanks to Sony’s LDAC technology, users can expect exceptional audio quality with approximately three times more data transmitted than conventional Bluetooth audio.

The headphones also feature Edge-AI and DSEE Extreme technology to upscale compressed digital music files in real-time, restoring the high-range sound lost in compression by recognizing musical elements and genres.

Head Tracking Support and Noise-Cancellation improvements

Sony continues to lead the market in noise-cancellation technology, and the WH-1000XM5 is no exception. Equipped with Sony’s best-ever noise-canceling technology and eight noise-cancellation microphones, the headphones offer unparalleled noise-cancellation quality. The Auto NC Optimiser optimizes noise cancellation based on the wearer’s conditions and ambient parameters, while the integration of Processor V1 unlocks the full potential of the HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1.

Expanded App Compatibility

Furthermore, the update expands app compatibility, making it easier for users to connect with various apps such as Locatone, endel, Auto Play, and Spotify. This improvement enhances user-friendliness and makes the headphones more appealing to a wider audience.

The introduction of Head Tracking support is another exciting feature, enriching the sound experience by enabling users to perceive changes in sound direction as they move their heads.

Already regarded as Sony’s flagship product, the WH-1000XM5 headphones are set to solidify their position further. These premium over-ear headphones boast a mostly recycled (and recyclable) design and deliver superlative sound quality. With these updates, Sony’s WH-1000XM5 headphones are poised to provide audiophiles with an unmatched and immersive audio experience.
