The unique combination of technology controls the six microphones, across both ears, to deliver unprecedented noise cancelling quality that can be adapted to provide the best performance for your environment.
  • New high sound quality and noise canceling driver unit
    The specially designed driver unit Dynamic Driver X, able to reproduce lower frequencies, has been improved using a dome-edge separation structure that combines different materials, allowing for a more accurate generation of cancellation waves in lower frequencies.
  • Astonishing sound quality

Our noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using more than 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise, increase accuracy and extract your voice clearly in various environments.
  • Detects speech vibrations to enhance clarity
    Bone conduction sensors pick up the vibration of your voice directly from your skull bones, helping to isolate your speech from ambient sounds and background noise, for clear calls even in loud environments.
  • AI Noise Reduction Algorithm
    Thanks to an AI-based noise reduction algorithm based on Deep Neural Network processing (DNN) your voice will come through clear, and more natural even in a noisy environment.
  • Hear and be heard
    A wind noise reduction structure and a mesh wrap in the microphone will minimize noise during calls so you can be heard clearly in windy conditions.
  • 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 optimizing the placement of the components, the earbud is now 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the WF-1000XM4. We’ve also reduced the size of your charging case, so it will fit even more sleekly in your pocket.
  • Feel a more stable fitting earbud
    Noise Isolation Earbud Tips feature a unique polyurethane foam material which reduces noise in the high-frequency range. Soft and elastic, they maximize the contact area between the earbud tip and the ear canal, insulating your sound and reducing noise. It also improves adhesion to the ear canal for a more secure, stable fit.
  • Comfortable and secure
