You don’t have to compromise with the latest Sony true wireless headphones. Thanks to Sony’s unrivalled headphone know-how, the WF-C500 earbuds deliver an authentic listening experience, long-lasting battery life and a compact, comfortable fit for the ultimate music on the move experience.

Sony has thought carefully about what’s important when it comes to design. If you’re going to be wearing them for work, rest and play, they need to feel good in your ears. In fact, thanks to the smooth styling and smaller-than-ever, lightweight design you might even forget you’re wearing them.

And it’s a case of form and function with the earbuds also sporting splash and sweat resistance thanks to an IPX4 water resistance rating ensuring they’re also ideal for the gym or going for a run.

The Sony WF-C500 earbuds will keep going as long as you do, too, thanks to the 20 hours of all-day battery life. You can enjoy 10 hours of tunes from the wireless headphones plus an extra 10 hours of battery life courtesy of the handy charging case. Need to top up in a hurry? Just 10 minutes of charge time will give you up to 60 minutes of music.

Sony knows sound quality, meaning you can hear your favourite tunes just how they’re intended to be heard. Sony’s industry-leading reputation for wireless earbuds ensures a high-quality sound that’s rich in detail.

Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology restores audio detail lost in low-quality music files for a more authentic listening experience, while a choice of EQ presets on the Sony | Headphones Connect app lets you tailor the sound to your preference. Want more bass? You’ve got it.

Bluetooth connectivity is quick, especially on Android (with Fast Pair) and Windows 10 (with Swift Pair), and delivers a stable connection thanks to the optimised antenna design and low audio latency.
