With several rumors emerging in recent weeks, it was predictable that the presentation of the Sony WH-1000XM5 was close. The date has already been confirmed by the Japanese company and there are only a few days left to find out all the news.

THE puzzle left by Sony on that social network does not clarify that the theme of the event scheduled for that day will be the Sony WH-1000XM5. However, the accompanying image indicates that they are the new Japanese headphones.

According to the latest rumours, the Sony WH-1000XM5 will not be very different aesthetically from its predecessors. There will be small changes that will bring you closer to the design of Bose products, but nothing revolutionary.

Although the initial rumors pointed to an increase in the autonomy of the Sony WH-1000XM5, it seems that this will not happen. As we can see in photos of its box, the headphones will offer up to 30 hours of playback.

One of the novelties will be the change from the traditional on/off button to a sliding button. In this way, it will be easier for users to know when their headphones are on or off.

As for its noise cancellation technology, nothing has been advanced yet. However, this is already a feature with great results in this product, so even if Sony doesn’t mess with this technology, the results will be great.

The price at which the Sony WH-1000XM5 will be sold is also unknown. Judging by the price of its predecessors, the new model should easily be over €300.

All the details will be clarified next week at its launch event. If you’re looking for new headphones, our advice is to wait a few days until the Sony WH-1000XM5 is released.
