About the Sony WH-CH500

No headphone jack? No problem.

Lots of newer phones these days don't have a 3.5mm jack for plugging in headphones the "old-school" way. Good thing you can get a solid pair of headphones like the Sony WH-CH500 without spending an arm and a leg. These 'phones use 30mm drivers for rich, detailed sound. Earcup controls let you play and pause your tunes, adjust the volume, or activate your smartphone's voice control assistant. (Siri and Google Assistant are supported.) The built-in battery gives you up to 20 hours of music listening on a single charge.
