Active Noise Cancellation

Everyone enjoys a little peace at some point and wants to shut themselves off from the outside world. This is where Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) comes into the picture. So what exactly is Active Noise Cancellation?

Noise Cancellation refers to blocking out background noise/ambient noise. But let's be clear: No Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones can eliminate all sound; they can only considerably reduce outside noise, creating the impression that the noise is suppressed. However, when the phrase "Active Noise Cancellation" is used, it signifies that the Wireless Headphones are actively searching for noise to block it out.

ANC is a technology that reduces or cancels out the surrounding or ambient noise. It reduces low-frequency noise like the sound of a jet engine or car engine. ANC specifically reduces low-frequency noise well. However, it is not capable of cancelling out high-frequency noise optimally. Wireless Headphones with ANC deliver class-leading ambient noise reduction, significantly improving sound quality.

If you're someone who is a frequent flyer, ANC helps eliminate constant droning noises from jet engines so you can sleep more easily during long-haul flights.

Battery Life

Wireless headphones have built-in batteries in the earcups, so these headphones do not need external power to play music.

Battery life is a measurement of battery performance. It is the amount of time your Wireless headphones will have enough power. It can be summed up; as how long a battery will last before your Wireless headphones need to be recharged.

Nothing interferes with your music, thanks to the high-performance and long-lasting battery. No interruptions, just pure sonic bliss!

Multi-point Connection

Bluetooth multipoint technology was introduced with the release of Bluetooth 4.0, over a decade ago. It’s a feature that allows Wireless headphones to maintain simultaneous connections to at least two source devices like a laptop and smartphone.

Multipoint allows you to seamlessly switch between devices, such as a computer and phone, without touching your devices. Multipoint technology is a great asset to increase productivity and convenience as you go through your daily life - from home to work. The simultaneous playback of audio from two devices is not possible with Multipoint, though.

In simple terms, Multipoint enables you to maintain a connection to two of your favourite, often-used devices at the same time. It is a great functionality allowing you to multitask without the hassle of tweaking the settings of Bluetooth.

Gesture Controls

Gestures Controls in Wireless Headphones give you control of various functions at the tip of your finger (literally). The easy-to-use touch control interface allows intuitive gesture controls for volume and music playback – you can swipe forward/backwards to switch tracks and up/down to adjust volume (may vary with devices).

With Gesture controls onboard you don’t have to reach for your source device to execute simple tasks. This elevates the listening experience.

The sound quality is good but volume is a bit low

The sound quality after tweaking a bit is really good(Coming from Android using LDAC, con - you can't use mutli device connectivity with LDAC but connection speed is really fast)
Major downside for me is that I have a habit of sometimes hearing at a really loud volume and I found the max volume to be quite low,( you won't feel this much if you are coming from regular headphones or earphones but I was using IEMs and they were so damn loud) so I don't think I'm gonna keep them.
I have the WF-XM4 and I didn't really find the noise cancellation all that great from them, maybe due to me having a really high expectation or due to the fact that their smallest head size is a tad bit big for me but noise cancellation didn't feel all that amazing.

We really appreciate the genuine feedback, we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well!

Best travel buddy

Never thought I’d be won over by a wireless headphone, coming from a school of thought that believes that lossless codecs & wired headphones provide the best listening experience. But the Sony impresses and how! Listening to Apple Music with ANC turned on, on a recent road trip to Mahabaleshwar, the outside world passed by in hushed silence as the music washed over me. The sound was detailed, balanced and engaging. My daily listen is a Sennheiser HD 660S that provides a different level of detail and emotion with lossless music but the Sony WH-1000XM5 is an excellent choice if you are looking for great sound and all the convenience that wireless & ANC brings.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Among the best ANC headphones

The sound quality and the noise cancellation + transparency mode are absolutely incredible. They look great and the comfort is great as well. The only thing I'm not fond of is when you take them off your ears and place it around your neck, the ear cushions turn and face upwards rather than the other way around. That, I'd say, is the only design flaw in these. So if you're travelling often, I don't think these might be the most easy to travel with since the case is also quite bulky. If you're willing to compromise on that aspect, then these are definitely for you!

Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience and thank you for the great review and ratings!
