The Sony WH-1000XM5 appears to have larger earpads and the headband looks to have thicker padding. This means that the newer model should be more comfortable to wear. The on-off switch has been replaced by a slide, while the "Custom" button has been renamed to "NC/Ambient." The leak suggests that the headphones will be available in Black and Silver.

As far as the specs are concerned, the Sony WH-1000XM5 will offer up to 40 hours of battery life with ANC, that's 10 hours more than the predecessors. However, the charging time has increased this time around as the headphones will take 3.5 hours to fully charge. We can also expect a better performance of the ANC, as we are told that the new headphones use two dedicated chips and three microphones for noise cancellation. The headphones also support Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, a 3.5mm jack, and a USB Type-C for charging.

At the time of writing, there is no word on when Sony plans on unveiling the WH-1000XM5 but they certainly look a lot more compelling in terms of looks and performance.
