It has been reported that Sony may update its flagship full-coverage and true wireless Bluetooth noise-cancelling headphones in the near future. Sony earlier confirmed that it will hold “Your World Start Here” online at 9:00 am Japan time (10:00 am Taiwan time) on May 13th. At the event, it was almost revealed that the new product that will debut at that time is the new flagship full-cover earphone WH-1000XM5.
However, it is not yet confirmed whether another true wireless Bluetooth noise-cancelling headset will also be announced at the same time, just two days after Sony Mobile is expected to announce the new Xperia flagship phone on May 11, whether there will be any special between the two. The connection has not yet been confirmed.
At present, the actual boxed WH-1000XM5 has also appeared on the Internet, and it can also be seen that the new earphones will also follow the LinkBuds in an environmentally friendly outer box packaging, which echoes Sony’s recent emphasis on the concept of moving towards zero carbon emission goals.
According to the previous exposure news, the appearance of the new earphones will adopt a more concise shape, and the earmuffs are obviously thicker, which may be to ensure the comfort and tightness of wearing, thereby reducing external sound interference.
However, although the left and right earmuffs still maintain the horizontally rotatable design, they no longer seem to provide a foldable storage structure, and the earmuffs and other parts may be made of recycled plastic materials compared to the LinkBuds headphones, and maintain two appearance options of black and sand.
