Sony WH-1000XM5



Stuff NZ Newspapers


Sony has pulled out all the stops and all possible technology options for the latest release of its WH-1000X headphones. These come with multiple microphones to offer full noise-cancelling and keep out high frequencies from plane noise to people’s voices. Other features include technology that can sense where you are and what you are doing then adjust the ambient sound – you can expect clear and consistent sound everywhere. Take them off or start a conversation and the headphones automatically stop the audio, and there are tap controls to play, skip and crank music. The soft leather cans fit snugly around the head. Buy them for $545 from Sony.
