The Sony WF-1000XM5 has just been launched in Malaysia. To celebrate the local arrival of the wireless earbuds, Sony Malaysia is currently running a roadshow showcasing its various audio products at the popular Mid Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur until 20 August this Sunday.

For the Malaysian market, the WF-1000XM5 retails at RM1,399; exactly RM300 more than the WF-1000XM4 when it was first launched on our shores. Offered in two distinct colours (Black and Platinum Silver), early birds can get a number of freebies by purchasing the XM5, including a free HYPE T-shirt.

The highlight feature of the new WF-1000XM5 is certainly the improved noise cancelling. Using a total of six microphones and two separate processors, the XM5 can capture ambient sound more accurately while also delivering “unprecedented noise cancelling quality” – certainly a lofty promise.

Other specifications of the WF-1000XM5 include a new 8.4mm dynamic driver dubbed Dynamic Driver X – it’s said to provide deeper bass, richer vocals, and clear highs – up to 12 hours of battery life (down to eight hours with noise cancellation enabled), noise isolation foam tips, and IPX4 water resistance.

If you’re keen to purchase the new Sony WF-1000XM5 and score some freebies while you’re at it, you can do so at Sony Malaysia’s roadshow in Mid Valley Megamall at the East Atrium (right in front of Uniqlo) on the ground floor. To recap, Sony’s latest premium wireless earbuds retail at RM1,399 locally.
