The XM5 earplugs also feature a glossy design, where the current WF-1000XM4 earplugs have a matte finish.

The XM5 weighs 5.9 grams and features larger Dynamic Drivers X at 8.4 mm in diameter. The drivers in the XM4 earplugs are 6mm in diameter. The earplug also has an extra microphone compared to the XM4 earplugs. Sony supplies the earphones with a new V2 integrated processor, which is the successor to the V1 from the XM4. This works with the HD Noise Canceling Processor QN2e. According to Sony, these additional microphones and new chips are used to improve noise cancellation.

The earbuds also support the LDAC audio codec, as well as Bluetooth multipoint and DSEE Extreme. The WF-1000XM5 also has bone conduction sensors and Precise Voice Pickup technology, which should better pick up the wearer’s voice during conversations, even in noisy environments.

The earplugs also achieve up to eight hours of battery life on a single charge. With the charging case, the total battery life is 24 hours. This has not changed from the XM4. The charging case can be charged wirelessly via the Qi standard, and the earphones have received IPX4 water resistance certification.
