Titanium media App May 19 news, Sony released in-ear noise-canceling true wireless headphones LinkBuds S and head-mounted flagship active noise-canceling headphones WH-1000XM5, the price of the two new products are 1299 yuan and 2999 yuan respectively.
As Sony's flagship noise reduction product, Sony is equipped with a dual-chip architecture and 8 microphones for the WH-1000XM5. The external six microphones first transmit the ambient noise to the high-performance integrated processor V1 for processing, and the processed data is sent to the HD noise reduction processor QN1 to accurately generate the inverting curve to cancel the noise. The two internal feedback microphones are responsible for detecting residual noise near the ear canal, and the noise reduction process is carried out again by the integrated processor V1.
At the same time, the new product supports 20 levels of controllable ambient sound mode and AI noise reduction, which can automatically switch the ambient sound level according to the user's behavior, and can also automatically optimize the noise reduction effect according to the user's wearing situation and environmental air pressure.
In terms of sound quality, Sony has developed a new 30mm diaphragm for the WH-1000XM5, which uses a high-rigidity, low-weight carbon fiber material with high-frequency extensions up to 40kHz, and Sony has also upgraded the audio circuit. The circuit of the WH-1000XM5 adopts the technology of the new generation OfWalkman NW-WM1ZM2, and the circuit layout is reasonably optimized for the excellent DACs and amplifiers of the two chips, so that the sound quality details can be fully displayed.
The Sony WH-1000XM5 is still equipped with LDAC Bluetooth transmission technology and DSEE Extreme (Advanced Edition of Digital Sound Enhancement Engine). In terms of calls, the WH-1000XM5 noise-cancelling headphones not only have deep neural network learning technology (DNN), but also carry beamforming technology. Thanks to the deep neural network learning technology, the headset accurately eliminates the surrounding noise during the call with high-quality algorithms, retains the call vocals, and the beamforming technology collects the sound through 4 microphones, accurately synthesizes the human voice, filters out the ambient noise, and weakens the harsh wind noise.
WH-1000XM5 adopts a new design language, the leather at the ear cups and headband is selected from the newly designed "soft and stress-relieving leather" material, in order to facilitate storage and adjustment of wearing, the structure also added a silent hinge and no-gauge slider design, in addition, the storage box is foldable, very portable for users who need to travel a lot.
WH-1000XM5 retains the intelligent control of the previous generation, after the headset turns on the intelligent pick-free function, when the user is detected to speak, the WH-1000XM5 will automatically pause the playback content, in addition, the WH-1000XM5 is also equipped with AI adaptive sound control function, automatically switch the ambient sound level or open different noise reduction modes. In terms of endurance, the WH-1000XM5 realizes the support for PD fast charging, with a total time of 30 hours for noise reduction and up to 40 hours for off noise reduction.
Another new product LinkBuds S headphone body weight of 4.8g, wearing, Sony through the analysis of a large number of research data, and finally deduced can adapt to most of the user's ear cavity shape design. In order to better enhance the user's listening experience in the public or outdoor environment, the LinkBuds S body is also equipped with the same new integrated processor V1 chip as the flagship noise-canceling true wireless headphone WF-1000XM4, and adopts the SiP system-in-package process to reduce the size of the circuit board.
It absorbs and improves the noise reduction performance of the HD noise reduction processor QN1e, generating inverted sound waves on noise in the environment and consuming lower power, while LinkBuds S also wraps the internal microphone through a grid design, effectively reducing the impact of wind noise on listening.
In terms of intelligent interaction, LinkBuds S adopts AI adaptive sound control function, which can automatically detect the user's activity status and activity location after opening, identify frequent offices, gyms or stores, automatically switch preset ambient sounds and noise reduction schemes, and manually switch 20 levels of ambient sounds.
Previously, Sony's new Product LinkBuds used a ring design to transmit transparent ambient sound, while the newly released LinkBuds S ambient sound mode used a microphone to increase the collection of ambient sound and make the surrounding sound pass into the ear. In terms of sound quality, LinkBuds S uses a 5mm driver unit with a highly flexible diaphragm, and also supports LDAC Bluetooth transmission technology, and the new product has also obtained Hi-Res Audio Wireless wireless gold label certification.
In addition, users can adjust the equalizer freely through the Headphones Connect App, or they can choose the Clear Bass bass enhancement function to improve the sense of sound ambience and low frequency elasticity. In the call scenario, LinkBuds S is equipped with deep neural network technology (DNN), which adapts to different call scenarios through the learning of massive samples. By judging the different sounds during the call, you can filter out the ambient noise and preserve the human voice, so as to obtain high-definition call sound quality.
The smart hands-free conversation feature also appears in the new product, after turning on the function, when the user speaks, the LinkBuds S headset will automatically pause playback, by default, 15 seconds after the end of the conversation, the music will resume playing. As a member of the LinkBuds family, LinkBuds S also supports one-click evoking Tencent's small and micro voice assistant function. After the user turns on the Quick Access function, he can automatically call the QQ Music APP to play the pre-set content.
In terms of battery life, the LinkBuds S can be used for about 6 hours at a time when it is fully charged, and the battery life can be supplemented by the charging case for about 20 hours, which can basically meet the daily needs of the day. LinkBuds S supports fast charging, when the use of temporary discovery of insufficient power, charging 5 minutes, can be used for about 1 hour, charging 10 minutes, can be used for about 90 minutes.
