Design and Wearability

Small and beautifully designed

With an improved glossy texture and a more luxurious feel, these earbuds fit comfortably in your ears while keeping out external sounds.

By downsizing the headphone body and optimising the placement of the components, the earbud is now approximately 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the WF-1000XM4. We've also reduced the size of the charging case, so it will sit even more sleekly in your pocket.

Comfortable and secure

Our WF-1000XM5 earbuds feature a shape that perfectly matches the human ear with an ergonomic design for a more stable fit. We've designed the WF-1000XM5 utilising extensive ear-shape data collated since introducing the world's first in-ear headphones in 1982. Our continuous evaluation of different ear shapes and sensitivities has helped us design an ideal earbud shape, secure and comfortable for almost everybody.

A comfortable fit and better sound insulation

New Noise Isolation Earbud Tips are made from an exclusive material that improves fitting and increases comfort thanks to reduced pressure in the ear due to a newly designed shape. The earbuds come in four sizes, including SS.
