The Sony WH-1000XM5 noise-cancelling headphones were first introduced to the world in May. These are Sony’s newest flagship headphones. The 1000XM model’s updated active noise cancellation (ANC), unique design, longer battery life, 30mm audio driver arrangement, and other features set it apart from older models.
Sony is preparing to introduce the new headphones in India before the festive season. Before the commencement of the Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale on September 23, Sony is teasing the debut of a new headphone product in India on Amazon. In September previous year, Sony India also unveiled the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones.
Although the teaser does not explicitly state the product’s name, examining the page’s source code reveals that it is “sony/nm/1000XM5” and that the picture on the website has the “1000XM5” name. Additionally, the website’s image mimics the already released Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones. Let’s examine the specifics.
