Sony has a number of wearable devices under its belt, but its goods are tough to categorise as inexpensive. Sony, on the other hand, has released a new set of earphones for the Indian market that might be considered affordable. The Sony WF-C500 Truly Wireless Earbuds have a retail price of Rs. 5990 ($81).
The Sony WFC500 adopts an ergonomic and closed design with the usual silicone tips. The surface design allows for greater stability of fit. Each jewel has a control button that can be used for reading or to call a virtual assistant on a connected smartphone. The WFC500 is also equipped with the Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) designed to restore high-frequency sounds lost during compression. Apart from that, it has 360 Reality Audio aimed at providing users with an immersive experience.
Because it is splash-proof and sweat-proof, the wearable gadget has an IPX4 waterproof grade, making it perfect for use even in the rain and during exercises. It may be placed in the carrying case with a clear top when not in use. The earbud has a battery life of up to 10 hours, which may be extended to 20 hours by utilising the carrying case. Fast charging is supported by the case, with a 10-minute charge providing 60 minutes of playing.
The Sony Headphones Connect app may be used to connect the WF-C500 and adjust the audio experience. It also encourages the usage of only one earbud.
Sony retail outlets (Sony Center and Sony Exclusive), ShopatSC.com portal, major electronic retailers, and other e-commerce websites in India will begin selling the Sony WF-C500 on January 16. The gadget is available in four colours: black, white, green, and orange.
