Sony WF-C500 Truly Wireless Review


The Sony WF-C500 are budget-friendly earbuds with a very neutral sound profile. Ηowever, our unit's left and right earbuds are a bit mismatched, and there's more...

IPX4 rating for water resistance. Good build quality. Long continuous battery life. Graphic EQ and presets. Controls for answer/ending calls. Adequate recording quality.

Mic has mediocre noise handling. Can fall out during intense workouts. No ANC feature. Passive soundstage seems small and unnatural.

The Sony WF-C500 are decent for neutral sound. Out of the box, they have a very neutral sound profile suitable for a variety of genres. Ηowever, sibilants like S and T sounds are a bit dull. Also, our unit's right driver is noticeably more bass-heavy...

Sony WF-C500 review: These $99 buds are a top value choice


These entry-level Sony earbuds combine upmarket features with great performance at a bargain price.

With the WF-C500, Sony arguably has the best wireless earbuds under $100. Getting the bass performance of some of their mid-range models with proprietary technologies that enhance the listening experience is unheard of at this price point. The WF-C500...

Sony's audio expertise is evident with the WF C500 earbuds. What could have been better was a bit more utilitarian design and a few extra features.

Sony WF-C500 review


What Hi-Fi? Awards 2022 winner. Genuine contenders that don't cut too many corners

Compact and comfortable design ; Spirited, well-balanced sound ; Fine control app

Ordinary battery life ; Slightly small-scale sound ; Numerous serious rivals

Sensible compromises make these Sonys real competitors in the budget true wireless earbuds arena

The Sony WF-C500 sound incredible and they're comfortable

Excellent sound quality ; Manual equaliser settings ; Comfortable fit
