Sony WH-1000XM5 and LinkBuds S Officially Arriving in Malaysia
The Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless, noise-canceling headphones are the latest addition to Sony’s series. This latest model provides customers with an immersive, distraction-free audio quality, and the introduction of new technologies elevates the WH-1000XM4’s noise-canceling and dynamic range to an entirely new level.
As you might expect, it features noise cancellation and two processors managing eight microphones that drastically reduce noise, particularly in the mid-high frequency range, and an Auto NC Optimiser that automatically optimizes noise cancellation based on the surroundings. Sony’s exact Speech Pickup technology isolates your voice with perfect precision using four beamforming mics and an AI-based noise reduction structure, while a newly developed wind noise reduction structure reduces wind noise during calls.
Interestingly, it supports Google’s new Fast Link function, which allows you to easily pair it with your Android devices. You may also find out where you left your headphones last. Swift Pair makes it simple to connect your headphones to your Windows 11 or Windows 10 laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. In case you’re wondering, the battery life is said to be up to 30 hours, with notable improvements in its fast charging capabilities.
The Sony WH-1000XM5 will be retailing for RM1,799, with pre-orders starting 5th June 2022. Doing so will get you a free STM Myth 18L backpack worth RM399.
Sony LinkBuds S
Building off the success of the unique LinkBuds, the Sony LinkBuds S is dubbed as the world’s smallest, lighting noise-cancelling earbuds. Weighing a mere 4.8g, it features an ergonomic design to match the human ear and comes with Hi-Res audio, IPX4, and 5mm audio drivers. The battery life is said to be up to 20 hours total.
In case you’re interested, the Sony LinkBuds S will be retailing for RM929, with pre-orders available from now onwards in Malaysia. Doing so will yield a Sometimes Card Holder worth RM88 for free.
Pokdepinion: Given how pricey it is, I do hope the Sony WH-1000XM5 can offer a lot for the price. Finally, we see a notable design change but I’m also hoping for a good performance boost as well.
