As previously suggested, Sony today introduced its new wireless headphones – WH-1000XM5. This is a new model of the iconic line of Sony and the first in several years with an updated design.

Sony WH-1000XM5 introduced.  They have become better in almost everything, but there is one big drawback.

Let’s start with the price. The novelty costs 400 dollars. That’s $50 more than the WH-1000XM4 costs. True, this model often has discounts, while it remains on sale.

WH-1000XM5 not only changed in design, but also received a new design. And this may be the main reason for many not to buy a new model. As you can see in the photo, the headphones can no longer be folded the way previous generations of the WH-1000XM folded. Perhaps Sony was inspired by the AirPods Max, but that’s what Apple headphones are usually scolded for. Accordingly, the case for the new model is much larger, and this can be a problem. And the case itself is quite bulky. At the same time, the headphones weigh even a little less than the previous model (250 g).

But the authors of the reviews that have already been published note improved ear cushions, thanks to which the headphones have become even more comfortable.

Sound is the most important thing in headphones. And there are a lot of changes here too. First, Sony switched from 40mm to 30mm drivers. But the dimensions of the emitters are not always decisive. Be that as it may, the sound in the WH-1000XM5 is very different from previous generations, according to the reviews, and very much. The sound in the WH-1000XM5 is tighter, more detailed, and the low frequencies are clearer. At the same time, apparently, the sound has become less colored, so for some users the previous model may be more preferable.

In terms of noise reduction, on the one hand, Sony uses the same QN1 processor, but on the other hand, there is also a V1 coprocessor. As a result, the new model copes better with street noise. At the same time, the button for optimizing noise reduction technology has disappeared – Sony says that the headphones do everything automatically.

Voice transmission has also improved, because the WH-1000XM5 now has eight microphones (was four)! True, only four are used for voice data. In any case, in practice, the novelty is significantly better than its predecessor, and this is the main thing. The battery life of the new model is the same 30 hours as the previous model, although a larger body and smaller emitters would probably allow Sony to fit a larger battery inside.

As a result, Sony improved the sound, speech transmission, noise reduction, made the headphones more convenient, but for some reason changed the design for the worse, which for a number of users will cross out all the improvements. But on the other hand, the WH-1000XM4 remains on sale, and the WH-1000XM3 is still easy to buy.

Samsung cheated the unique S95B QD OLED TV turned out to

Earlier this year, Samsung introduced the S95B QD-OLED TV, which stands out with its new panel and 144Hz support. And with the last point there is a nuance.

Samsung cheated: the unique S95B QD-OLED TV turned out to be better than the company describes it

The fact is that the frequency of 120 Hz is indicated on the Samsung website, and the company spoke about it during the announcement. However, the TV was found to be capable of running at 144Hz while maintaining 4K UHD resolution.

The author of the HDTVTest channel conducted a series of tests and determined that the TV can indeed operate at a higher frequency than stated. At the same time, it works in full 4K UHD without various tricks like reduced vertical resolution and does not miss a single frame. Is that in this mode the color depth is limited to 8 bits.

In order to get the TV to work in this mode, you will need a PC, since modern consoles only support 120 Hz. You also need a video card with HDMI 2.1 and an appropriate cable. The author tested the novelty with the GeForce RTX 3090. Everything worked fine, including G-Sync.

The Samsung S95B QD-OLED is therefore a unique TV not only because of its new panel, but also because of its support for 144Hz at 4K UHD resolution.

The source published a list of parameters, indicating a 120x zoom, a focal length range of 12-120 mm (equivalent) and an aperture range of F / 1.95-4.1. All this exactly matches the camera specifications of the current Xiaomi flagship.
