Sony WF-1000XM5

Allegedly, Sony is just days away from the official announcement of their latest product, the WF-1000XM5 earbuds. As we eagerly await the unveiling, a retailer has leaked a wealth of specifications for the upcoming Sony WF-1000XM5, giving us an exciting sneak peek into the design and features of these highly anticipated earbuds.

According to a recent report by The Walkman Blog, detailed specifications for Sony’s upcoming high-end earbuds, the WF-1000XM5, have been revealed. This comes after Sony’s earlier announcement of the WF-C700N earbuds earlier in the year, suggesting a late spring update for their flagship lineup. While there have been rumors about the WF-1000XM5, Sony has not officially confirmed any information regarding their release. However, it is speculated that Sony will make an announcement about the WF-1000XM5 later this week.

Despite the absence of official confirmation, The Walkman Blog has released a screenshot that showcases a comparison between the WF-1000XM5 and other Sony earbuds. This screenshot aligns with information found on an Amazon listing.

As per the leak, the WF-1000XM5 is said to weigh 5.9 grams per earbud, making it 1.4 grams lighter than its predecessor, the WF-1000XM4. Furthermore, the screenshot suggests that the WF-1000XM5 is noticeably smaller than the WF-1000XM4, indicating potential improvements in terms of comfort.

Additionally, the bundled charging case for the WF-1000XM5 weighs 39 grams, which is 2 grams lighter than its predecessor. While the battery life of up to 24 hours with the charging case remains the same as the WF-1000XM4, it appears that Sony has made advancements in its charging technology.

It is reported that a mere three minutes of charging time can provide an hour’s worth of playback, an improvement from the five minutes required with the WF-1000XM4. The WF-1000XM5 will continue to support Qi wireless charging, and the bundled charging case will feature a USB Type-C port. Moreover, the earbuds are expected to retain LDAC support, Bluetooth Multipoint functionality, and the ability to detect whether you are wearing them or not.
