About the Sony WH-CH710N

Jeff Miller

Value-packed noise-cancelers with convenient features 

The lightweight Sony WH-CH710N wireless noise-canceling headphones boast a loaded set of features for this price. Not surprising. Sony has quite the reputation in this category. In fact, many Crutchfield customers consider their premium WH-1000XM3 model to be the absolute best in class.

While you shouldn't expect that same top-level performance or build quality here, there's a lot to like about the WH-CH710N. You get a well-padded, relaxed fit and music plays wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0 — the strongest, most reliable Bluetooth yet.  And Sony's active noise cancellation helps keep external distractions at bay. (A must-have if you're working from home and have kids like I do.)

Long-lasting battery

You get up to 35 hours of wireless noise-canceling use on fully charged battery. Great for those of us who constantly forget to recharge our headphones. Good news if you do run out of juice: 10 minutes of recharging provides enough power for over an hour of listening. (You can even go "old school" and plug them into a headphone jack with the included 3.5mm audio cable.)

Sound tuned for strong bass

I haven't heard these headphones yet, but they feature 30mm drivers tuned for clear highs and hard-hitting bass. I should have firsthand impressions soon. 

Sony's signature pleasant fit 

I always like the way Sony over-ears fit. I haven't had a chance to try the WH-CH710N headphones yet, but I have worn the model they are replacing. Those stayed in place well, but never clamp too tightly — crucial if you wear glasses like I do. Sony slightly tweaked the headband and oval ear cup designs this time around, so I expect they should feel even more comfortable. 

Close-up of controls

Buttons on the right ear cup give you control over music, calls, and noise cancellation.

Free mobile app for Apple® and Android™ phones

Download the free Sony Headphones Connect app to your phone, and you can customize the sound to suit your listening preferences. Tweak the equalization, sound presets, and more. You can even choose MORE bass. 

Easy earcup controls for music, calls, noise cancellation — and awareness

Press a button on the right earcup to choose the appropriate level of noise cancellation for your surroundings. That same button will activate "Ambient mode." This uses the built-in mics to let in important external noise or voices, while the music keeps playing.

There are also buttons to control your music and volume. If a call comes through, simply hit the answer button and take the call through your headphones.

Product Research


Overview: The Sony WH-CH710N Wireless Over-ear Headphones let you enjoy your favorite music or podcasts without wires getting in your way. With Noise Cancellation, you can shut out ambient noise to listen to your music and phone calls without distraction. These lightweight headphones use Bluetooth 5.0 for a reliable wireless connection up to 30 feet away. When you're finished listening, the headphones fold flat so you can easily throw them in your briefcase or purse.

Drivers: The headphones are equipped with large 30mm drivers that reproduce a wide range of frequencies. You'll hear lots of detail and solid bass from your music, and clear, hands-free conversations.

Bluetooth 5.0: The WH-CH710N has Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless listening from your smartphone, tablet, or Bluetooth music player. The headphones are compatible with A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP profiles, and feature SBC and AAC codecs for enhanced sound quality. For NFC-compatible devices, you can easily pair the headphones to your phone by tapping your device on the "N" mark, located on the left ear cup.

Noise Cancelling/Ambient Sound: You can control how much ambient noise you hear while wearing the headphones. The Noise Cancelling function senses external ambient noise with the built-in microphones and produces an equal-but-opposite signal that cancels out the ambient noise. To maintain awareness of your surroundings, the Ambient Sound mode picks up and amplifies external noise. This improves safety as you walk down the street, or allows you to hear public announcements at the airport or train station. You can switch between Noise Cancelling and Ambient Sound modes via the dedicated button on the right ear cup.

Voice Assistant: The WH-CH710N is compatible with the Google Assistant that comes with the Android smartphone, and with Siri with the iPhone. When connected to your device via Bluetooth, you can speak through the headphones' in-line microphone to operate your device using voice commands. The Google Assistant/Siri feature can be activated by a simple button press.

Rechargeable Battery: The Sony WH-CH710N over-ear headphones have a built-in 3.7-volt Lithium-ion rechargeable battery, which charges in approximately 7 hours via the included USB-C cable. Music playback and communication times vary when using Noise Cancellation (NC), Ambient Sound Mode, or with NC off (see Specifications below).

Hello, I saw a set of these Headphones in the Store, on the box it has the Bluetooth sign and also the Wi-Fi sign. If you can stream with these headphones directly from the internet, that would be a major improvement. Nobody is saying anything about that though and the specs do not list Wi-Fi, so are they or are they not wi-Fi?

Greetings monika, and thank you for your question. These headphones do not have wifi for direct connection to the Internet, just Bluetooth from your phones, tablets, and computers if they have the BT transmitter.

Can I connect WHCH710N this model to ASUS laptop model X541N and Samsung Tab 4?

These headphones can be used with any device that has the ability to transmit Bluetooth. That could include tablets, smartphones, and even laptops. However, not all laptops offer Bluetooth capability. It may be necessary to check your laptop settings and features to ensure it is capable of transmitting Bluetooth.

The two earpieces can fold to stay symmetrical or flat with the head strap .this makes it easy to put in luggage or other bags.

No, the earcups just turn in.

I do not believe so. Must like a "no frills" pair of hearing protection, the structure of the headphones remain static.

I do not have a smart TV to answer you correctly but if your TV has Bluetooth than its possible. Also the headphones comes with a cable to connect to any earphone device on case there is no Bluetooth connection.

will these headphones Bluetooth work with an apple IPhone? how would they sync with my dell laptop
bob  Aug 03, 2020

Not sure with iPhone as I have an Android. With the laptop, very easy. Type Bluetooth in your search bar by your start button, go to bluetooth and other device settings, select the + to add bluetooth device, select the pairing button on your headphones. You will hear a voice tone saying paired and your headphones will be listed under bluetooth devices.
