Build Aspect

WH-1000XM5 are the newest gen ANC headphones from the stables of Sony. These are a premium and high end pair of wireless headphones. The looks are an evolution over the previous gen and this not only makes them more refreshing but also sleeker. The comfort levels are superb thanks to the soft and plush cushioning. Moreover the relatively light weight build further enhances long duration usability. On the flip-side the cups don’t fold this time around thereby reducing the portability. In some more bad news the overall build while seems to be good is definitely not on par with WH-1000XM4. Case in point being, hinge seems flimsy and plastics do not feel too rich either. Not all is gloomy as battery life remains very good with a usage time of nearly 40 hours with the ANC off.

Performance Aspect

The sound profile is very much similar to the WH-1000XM4s with very subtle improvements here and there. These improvements make the audio more lively. Let us elaborate, as before bass is the strong suit of these wireless headphones. It is powerful and will make the listener groove to the beat. Furthermore these wireless headphones present the vocals and instruments in a most impressive way. The mids are sharp and very clear through and through. Lastly the treble is very well balance and neutral. The highs are focused and bright. However it never sounds sibilant. Moreover hi-hats and high frequency instruments sound lively and fantastic for a lack of better adjective. Superb and truly amazing Active Noise Cancellation is literally the best there is 6 ways to Sunday. All in all WH-1000XM5 offer truly exceptional audio performance, ANC feature-set, and therefore are one of the best wireless headphones under ₹ 30000 in India. Additionally it should be noted that the older Sony 1000XM4 Bluetooth headphones are really good too and better in some ways.
