Sony’s flagship true wireless headset WF-1000XM5 seems to have entered the final stage of preparation, news about the headset’s key specifications. Now, a certification has emerged that further hints at the headset’s imminent release.
The WF-1000XM5 has already appeared on the Wireless Power Consortium’s website after the device also showed up on the FCC certification site and its design was revealed months ago. The latest certification confirms that the new headphones will soon support Qi wireless charging up to 2W, similar to its predecessor, and reveals the device’s model number as Y2963.
According to previous revelations, the flagship headphones are expected to feature a similar design to the WF-1000XM4 model. However, each headset weighs only 5.9 grams, which is lighter than the XM4’s 7.3 grams. In addition, the WF-1000XM5 provides up to 24 hours of audio playback when used with the charging case. It only takes 3 minutes to charge and you can play for about an hour. However, more details about the headphones are still unclear, but it is believed that the Sony WF-1000XM5 will be released later this month or possibly in August 2023.
