What you need to know

  • New renders allegedly show off the upcoming Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones.
  • The headphones have a slightly different design from their predecessor and will reportedly come in black and silver variants.
  • The XM5 headphones are rumored to include two processors for ANC and last up to 40 hours on a single charge with ANC enabled.

It’s been a couple of years since Sony launched the excellent WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones, which means it should be about time for the next model to arrive. So far, rumors have been pretty non-existent for the XM5, but a new leak gives us just about all the information we could want.

TechnikNews has revealed both renders and details about the successor to some of the best wireless headphones on the market. Based on the renders, the WH-1000XM5 will have a much sleeker design when compared to the previous two models. The ear cups also appear slightly larger than the WH-1000XM4, and there seems to be more padding on the band.
