About the Sony WF-C500
Bang — and bass — for the buck
The Sony WF-C500 true wireless earbuds are designed to fit securely and avoid pressure points.
Bang — and bass — for the buck
The sweatproof, 100% wire-free Sony WF-C500 headphones offer above-average performance for their price. They're tuned to deliver clear sound with deep, powerful bass. And they also offer reliable wireless performance, solid battery life, and a secure fit.
Music and podcasts play wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth 5.0. This is a newer version of Bluetooth that makes for easy pairing and a stronger wireless connection.
Comfortable "stay-put" fit
I've learned that in-ear headphones are only as good as their fit. You simply can't get a good workout or enjoy your commute if you are constantly adjusting your earbuds. Sony has included three sizes of silicone ear tips to help you get a comfortable, secure fit. And Sony's ergonomic design lends some relief to notorious in-ear pressure points.
You can wear both earbuds at the same time or one at a time. I find single-ear operation handy for phone calls — or popping in an earbud to listen to a podcast.
Sony's free mobile app lets you fine-tune the sound and noise cancellation
Download Sony's Headphones Connect mobile app for even more control over your music. You can customize the sound characteristics and adjust the EQ. You can also reconfigure the on-ear controls or set up Alexa or Google Assistant to activate via voice command through your paired phone. You can also control music and calls with the on-ear buttons.
Just 10 minutes inside the charging case offers one hour of listening.
Solid battery life and charging case
When fully charged, the Sony WF-C500 earbuds offer up to ten hours of music listening — that's great battery life for this category. The included charging case can bank up to ten more hours of power. And just 10 minutes inside the case gives you 60 minutes of wireless music.
