We knew he was fast approaching, we now know what it might look like. The Sony WH-1000xM5 is clarified by a site indiscretion TechniqueNewsshowing major changes, both aesthetically and technically.

A spec sheet with an increased battery

While the WH-1000xM4 With only minor improvements over its predecessor (including multipoint Bluetooth and proximity sensor), the Sony WH-1000xM5 could mark a major turning point for the line many consider to be that of the best bluetooth headsets

Technically, this fifth generation would be a new Director, without the details thereof being explained by TechnikNews. On the other hand, we know that Bluetooth could go from the 5.0 standard to the 5.2 standard.

However, the most interesting thing is on the side of the battery. The Sony WH-1000xM5 could see its autonomy increase to 40 hours with active noise cancellation (ANC). In comparison, the 1000xM4 will last 10 hours less under the same conditions and can only reach 40 hours if the ANC is turned off. Charging time would increase accordingly: count 3.5 hours for a 0 to 100%.

A new design

The site is simultaneously sharing alleged images of the helmet. We see a more refined design, with a thinner headband that is vaguely reminiscent of what can be found on the Bose headphones 700 or the Bowers & Wilkins PX7.

Note the presence as always of a physical button for the ANC (but not for the volume, suggesting the presence of tactile zones as on previous models), as well as an ON/OFF button that now becomes a mechanical switch. USB-C and the connection are still in play.

For the colors, we find the severity specific to Sony: black and silver (preferably cream). We will have to wait a little longer for the price and release date.
