Adjusts to the world around you

Adaptive Sound Control senses where you are and what you're doing, then uses AI to change ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. Over time, it will learn your behaviour, recognise locations you visit often and tailor the sound to suit your location.

A new sound experience for AR gaming

If you're looking for new entertainment options beyond music and films, the WF-1000XM5 uses new sensors and spatial sound technology to deliver immersive sound for Augmented Reality games like "Ingress" from Niantic01.
