The Sony WH-1000XM5 rank as one the best noise-cancelling headphones on the market, competing with the likes of the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless and Bose 700. Thanks to the superb audio quality and excellent active noise cancellation, the Sony XM5 offer one of the best audio experiences out there.
During our testing, we found that the Sony WH-1000XM5 gets closer than ever to beating the Bose 700 — our best ever noise canceller. Audio quality is superb; the 30-hour battery life (with ANC) is excellent; and everything from the touch controls to the ability to tweak the EQ via the Sony Headphones Connect app is well thought out and seamlessly integrated. Call quality has also been improved greatly and there's really nothing to criticize here beyond the slightly bland styling.
And while $348 is still far from cheap, it's the lowest we've seen them at so far. Overall, this is a spectacular deal, so if you're serious about purchasing a pair, make sure to hurry as we don't expect stocks to last long at this price.
