Sony Supplements Its Wireless Headphones Range with the New WF-C500 and WH-XB910N

To make your listening experience customised to your needs, Sony has announced the arrival of the two new wireless headphones – WF-C500 and WH-XB910N. Each of the new wireless headphones have its unique selling feature and is dependent on what the user wants out of their headphones. So, if you are looking for compact true wireless headphones that are water-resistant, check out the WF-C500. If you are looking to reminisce the memories of live concerts or music, why not take a look at the WH-XB910N. 

WF-C500 – Small size, uncompromising sound 

With its compact and ergonomic surface design, the WF-C500 will fit snugly in your ear. Despite its size, the WF-C500 delivers high-quality sound thanks to DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine). This restores high-frequency sound and fine fade-out sound to the track you’re listening to and creates a more authentic listening experience.

Dependent on the music you are listening to, the WF-C500 allows you to tailor your sound using the Equalizer setting in the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app. You can choose from a variety of settings to match sound quality with the music genre you’re listening to or even create and save your own settings

Compact and Stylish Case

The WF-C500’s cylindrical charging case is small and easy to carry around in a pocket or bag so you can take the earbuds anywhere you go. Its translucent lid with a texture like frosted glass gives the case a stylish, luxurious look and feel

Enjoy an effortless listening experience 

The WF-C500 has been specially designed to make everyday listening trouble-free. The easy operation buttons not only let you play, stop or skip through tracks and adjust the volume.

At the click of a button, you can connect to your preferred voice assistant to get directions, play music and send messages. Plus conversations flow freely with hands-free calling, now clearer than ever with a high-quality built-in microphone. 

Great for on the go

The headphones will provide you with 10 hours of battery life, and with the handy charging case you can enjoy up to 20 hours in total. The WF-C500 are perfect for on-the-go listening and if you’re in a rush you can easily top up the battery life with a 10-minute quick charge that gives you up to an hour of extra playtime.  

With an IPX4 water resistance rating, splashes and sweat are no problem for the WF-C500, meaning you can keep moving to the music no matter what. 

The WF-C500 is ideal for multitasking too. If you want to listen to your music while still being able to have a conversation, remove one earbud only from the charging case and use it as normal. 

A stable and reliable Bluetooth® connection creates a seamless and uninterrupted listening experience that ensures it’s just you and the music. The WF-C500’s Bluetooth chip transmits sound to the left and right ears simultaneously, along with optimised antenna design ensuring outstanding listening. And with low audio latency, your favourite movies just got better too.

Bring the party anywhere, with club-like bass on the WH-XB910N

The WH-XB910N overhead headphones feature exceptional bass with improved noise cancelling to replicate the feel of your favourite festivals or clubs.  The WH-XB910N features EXTRA BASS for an impressively deep, punchy sound. A dedicated bass duct on the headphone housing and increased air-tightness between the driver units and eardrums help to create precise rhythms that elevate every track. With Dual Noise Sensor technology, the WH-XB910N takes digital noise cancelling to the next level so you can truly shut out the world around you. 

Crystal clear calls

The WH-XB910N features Precise Voice Pickup Technology, which combines two built-in microphones with advanced audio signal processing, to pick up your voice clearly and precisely for hands-free calls. 

Give your listening experience a boost

The WH-XB910N also uses DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) in order to restore your favourite tracks to a high-quality sound, true to the original recording. Plus you can tailor your sound, just how you like it with the Equalizer feature in the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app. 

Using their two feedforward and feedback mics, the WH-XB910N captures more of the ambient sound around you, meaning you can enjoy a more natural listening experience that keeps you connected to your environment. The “Sony | Headphones Connect” app even allows you to adjust the level of ambient noise you hear, meaning no unwanted sounds will be let into the party.

Enjoy smarter listening 

The WH-XB910N uses Adaptive Sound Control which senses where you are and what you’re doing, in turn adjusting the ambient sound settings accordingly – so you can enjoy the perfect listening experience whether you’re out and about in a crowd or alone in a quiet room. Adaptive Sound Control even learns to recognise the locations you frequently visit and tailors the sound to suit your environment.

Long-lasting battery to keep the party going

With up to 30 hours of battery life, the WH-XB910N provides enough power for lengthy road trips and long festival weekends. And if you are running low, 10-minute quick charge gives you up to 4.5 hours’ worth of extra playtime with an optional AC adapter.

The WH-XB910N also features Sony’s popular Multipoint connection which means the headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at once. So when you receive a call, your headphones know which device is ringing and seamlessly connect to the right one automatically. Switching devices is as easy as just pressing a button.

All-day music, all-day comfort 

The WH-XB910N are equipped with soft, oval-shaped ear pads so you’ll never need to take a break from your favourite music, movies, or shows, making these headphones the perfect companion for your travels. This is thanks to comfortable synthetic leather and urethane materials with optimum ear pad structure and dimensions for exceptional wearability. 

With a handy design, the WH-XB910N allows the ear cups to swivel inwards, to be neatly packed into a compact and durable carry case, which includes a cable for wired listening so you can take your music with you wherever you go.

Find them with Fast Pair

The WF-C500 and WH-XB910N both support Google’s Fast Pair feature which means you can pair the headphones with your Android device quickly and easily. Plus Swift Pair also makes it quick and easy to pair your headphones with your Windows 10 computer via Bluetooth.

Fully immerse yourself with 360 Reality Audio

Both the WF-C500 and WH-XB910N allow playback of 360 Reality Audio tracks, personalised to the specific shape & size of the user’s ears. With 360 Reality Audio you can bring the concert to you or listen to music as if you’re with the artist in the recording studio. 

Sustainability matters

Sony has not only designed the WF-C500 and the WH-XB910N to be stylish but also with sustainability in mind. Zero plastic is included in the packaging material for both models, reflecting Sony’s commitment to reducing the environmental impacts of their products and practices.
