          It's really unnecessary to buy new headphones every year. As time pass our auditive abilities slowly deteriorate , so one could argue that as time pass you are OK spending less money on headphones, lol. In any case, good to see a battery improvement for those who don't have one of the previous version

            Charging something 3-*4 hours and then listening something 30-40 hours feel like with cell phones of the old days when Dynatac 8000X from Motorola unveiled by Martin Cooper charged 12 hours just to have a 30 minutes of a talk time.

              Previous version was more beautiful. This one looks like Apple and Bose mix. But Sony always has great sound. Even cheap ones are good.

                      those have a similar design like the Bose 700. not the actual look but the single, circular, rotating headband.

I've been very happy with both my phone and my current wireless headphones for a few years, when enough improvements are made I'll upgrade, and there are obviously many people on different generations of devices at different stages so it offers everyone the option to upgrade when they see fit.

                          And it's gonna be even bassier than the modern days Beats.

                            I have the WH-1000XM4 bought it in December 2021 and they work excellent. Excellent ANC. I don't think other than the build quality, there's more room to offer from Sony. XM4 were/are already a beast in ANC at its segment.

                              I hope the new XM5 gets the AptX HD support back.

                              Overall improvement is a big welcome! I have the XM2, can't wait to upgrade to the 5. :-)

                                WF-1000XM5 in 2022 too ?

                                  These headphones do NOT fold. Just look at the carry-case, that gives it away. These XM5 are going against the Bose 700 and the AirPod Max, at least in form-factor.

                                    Looks good to me. I might give a try 😎

                                      Bobby, 22 Apr 2022The design looks similar to the Bose 700yes but thicker head band.

                                        Kev, 22 Apr 2022A little bummed by the design change, as it no longer folds... moreLook at the side, there's a groove on the right and left, it's where you can fold them.
