Sony WH-1000XM5 retail packaging box confirms its design change

Remember the renderings of Sony WH-1000XM5 who appeared earlier? Well, these might be accurate after all, because headphones packing box appeared in the wild and showed the same design. However, it also proves us wrong on one of the speculated features, or maybe not.

The retail packaging box for the highly anticipated headphones contains the same thing we saw printed on them. It sports a slimmer junction between the ear cups and the headband, with the earcups looking slightly larger than those of the predecessor. The color palette is basically the same.

However, the battery feature spotted on the box conflicts with previous rumors. According to a previous report, the Sony WH-1000XM5 should bring 40 hours of battery life, but the box has “30 hours” printed on it. Despite this, the source assumes that the 30 hours could refer to the lifespan of the headphones when Sony’s Hi-Res LDAC audio coding technology is enabled. Meanwhile, it would still last up to 40 hours when the technology is off.
