Sony is one of the biggest names in audio equipment and they’ve added to their arsenal with two new entries. The options will appeal to most users with both over-ear and in-ear audio available.
The WF-C500 truly wireless headphones are a small, light, portable and powerful sound option. They’ve got great audio capabilities that have been engineered to maximise the user experience.
The feature set includes everything you’d expect it to such as:
- Being easy to pair with Bluetooth 5.0
- An app to customise your audio experience
- Designed for comfort to use your ear, not just ear canal to balance the earbuds
- Touch controls to maximise control as well as access your chosen smart assistant
- Great battery life with 10 hours of playback, 20 with the case charged
- IPX4 rating to ensure your headphones stand the test of daily life
They’ll hit Australian shelves in early October at an RRP of $149.95 in both black and white colours.
The WH-XB910N overhead headphones are a lot bigger and will deliver big sound. They’re another step up from the WF-C500 and understandably, you’ll pay for that with the RRP being $349.95 Aussie dollars.
Offering the features and comfort Sony is synonymous with, including top of the range noise-cancelling capabilities. That noise-cancelling and microphones result in you and your callers having extremely clear calls.
The connectivity ticks all the boxes with the capacity to connect your PC and phone or tablet for audio playback and calls with a multipoint connection. Both Google Assistant and Alexa are ready to work for you by touch control or simply calling them as you would with a smart speaker. The same app as the WF-C500 means you’ll be able to tweak the audio to your liking for extended playback of up to 30 hours, with a quick 10 minute charge giving you an extra 4.5 hours of playback.
There’s plenty of padding, an included carry case as well as the ability to physically connect. In typical Sony fashion, there’s so much to like about these including a choice of black or blue colours. If they’re sounding like something you’d like to check out, they’ll be appearing in Australia from early November.
