In our Sony WH-1000XM5 review we praise their balanced, spacious sound, excellent adaptive ANC and superb call quality. We gave the Sony WH-1000XM5 an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5-stars and our Editor's Choice award. 

At 8.8 ounces, Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones are slightly lighter than the 8.9 ounce WH-1000XM4. Although there's been a noticeable redesign, the Sony WH-1000XM5 retains the same lightweight low-profile aesthetic of the Sony WH-1000XM4. The XM5's soft-fit leather headband and on-ear cushions ensure luxurious, long-wearing comfort. 

Like the XM4 model, you'll get up to 30 hours of power per charge with ANC on. Toggle ANC off to get up to 40 hours of battery life, which is 2 more hours than the XM4 model. And if you're ever in a pinch, a 3-minute charge via USB-C PD nets you 3 hours of battery life. 

If you want to own the wireless headphones around, the Sony WH-1000MX5 may be worth the splurge.
