Sony WH-1000XM5 Wireless Noise Cancelling Over-Ear Headphones - Silver is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Low value but better XM4 It's better than XM4 that's for sure but there's no significant improvement both noise cancellation-wise and audio-wise. Noise cancellation algorithm needs to improve immediately. In most circumstances, it works well but when I was on a bus and the bus is bumping, it actually didn't cancel the noise of the bumping. Whenever there's bumping, the headphone will produce a noise like a bass drum which double the bumping noise. It's also not quite effective at canceling traffic noise (mostly tire noise). If you have XM4 already, I wouldn't suggest you upgrade to XM5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't think too much. xm5 is the best I am currently using two models, xm3 and xm5, and a lot has changed. The first is the sound quality, and the sense of space has improved and I like the bass more. Second, it is comfortable to wear. The xm3 was a bit uncomfortable because it pressed down on the ears after prolonged wear, whereas the xm5 was wider, so it was comfortable without pressing the ears even after wearing it for a long time. Third is noise canceling, and the xm3 also showed great technology, but xm5 seemed to handle low noise better. If you are thinking of purchasing noise canceling headphones, I highly recommend Sony, and among Sony models, the xm5 model is recommended. This model can be said to be the best among the existing noise-cancelling wireless headphones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New features The new features make the headphones a down grade from the previous versions. If you use the auto off function they turn off if you sit for more than 10 minutes. If you use the dual connect with the auto off off the batteries go flat because it will connect to whatever is around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing noise cancelling Bought these on presale. Best sound quality, noise cancelling and comfort. However, not the best for on a aux, sound quality is greatly reduced. Overall I would recommend these to anyone. Terrific headphones for calls as well

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice ANC but shallow cups Better than bose in terms of ANC but hurts my average size ears with shallow earcups and headband causes headache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sound and ANC This headphone gives you the best sound if you use the app to adjust the EQ to your liking. Yes! don't be like those YouTubers comparing this with other headphone by not adjusting EQ!!! The EQ is there for everyone to make this headphone suit their own tastes! Not using it for reviews is just silly!! :) I have Apple AirPods Max, Bose QC35, Yamaha headphone and I can tell you, no other headphones beat this Sony M5! Its the best sounding headphone hands down! Now, the ANC is top notch, best in the market, someone was saying AirPods Max is better, I have both and I can tell everyone Sony is WAY BETTER than AirPods Max. Comfort, it is now very very comfortable, if you have used Bose QC35, you can expect the same comfort level. I don't even remember I am wearing a headphone. (Apple AirPods Max is not comfortable at all for me, its too heavy and for a glasses wearing person, AirPods Max is just not good) Last but not least, the voice call quality outdoor is the best, Sony managed to remove nearly all background noise during voice call, no other headsets can do this. I was walking on a busy street while having a phone call with my sister, she can't tell I was on the street. It is THAT good! :) If you are considering a new headphone, BUY THIS! :)
