Sony WF-SP800N review: Feature-packed earbuds at an affordable price

 

Sony's new mid-range model offers a lot of high-end features at an affordable price. The WF-SP800N are designed to withstand your sweaty workouts with the company's powerful Adaptive Sound Control on top of great sound quality, reliable touch controls...

Price ; Deep punchy bass ; Powerful ANC ; 360 Reality Audio compatibility ; Loads of premium features

Awkward fit ; On-board volume controls requires sacrifice ; No wireless charging

Sony WF-SP800N review: Elite earbuds for every athlete

 

It's hard to beat Sony's WF-1000XM3 true wireless earbuds, but with ANC, waterproofing, monster battery life, and great sound, Sony's WF-SP800N come very close.

Great sound ; Class-leading battery life ; Very good water and dust protection ; Good active noise cancellation ; Excellent call quality

Bulky charging case ; No wireless charging

Sony WF-SP800N review: noise cancellation for your workouts

 

Unlike the 1000XM3s, these have proper water and sweat resistance.

Secure, comfortable fit ; Adequate noise cancellation ; Bass has plenty of oomph for workout playlists

Overall sound quality isn’t as detailed or pleasing as 1000XM3s ; Case lacks wireless charging and only has enough battery for one recharge ; No multipoint Bluetooth pairing

Sony’s SP800N earbuds are the company’s middle-tier set of true wireless earbuds. Like the flagship 1000XM3 buds, these have noise cancellation — but they add water / sweat resistance and longer battery life.

While they don't perform quite as well the WF-1000XM3 and lack a little bit of premium touch for their price, the WF-SP800N are very good active noise

 

While they don't perform quite as well the WF-1000XM3 and lack a little bit of premium touch for their price, the WF-SP800N are very good active noise-canceling true wireless sports earbuds.

Sony WF-SP800N Review: ANC earbuds fitter for fitness

 

Sony shook things up last year when it launched its first set of true wireless active noise-cancelling earbuds, and now the new WF-SP800N are here to pick up that torch. With waterproofing and a lower price tag, they don't replace the WF-1000XM3 but...

Sound great and Extra Bass lives up to its name ; Active noise cancellation is almost up to WF-1000XM3's ; IP55 water/dustproofing is great for fitness use ; Battery life is epic ; Comfortable, secure fit

Charging case is bulky and lacks Qi ; Doesn't quite match ANC/sound of WF-1000XM3's ; Earbuds are a little heavy and protrude from your ears

Sony WF-SP800N Truly Wireless Review

 

The Sony WF-SP800N are a very good pair of premium sports-oriented truly wireless headphones. They're well-built, quite comfortable, last a fairly long time on a...

Very secure fit. Sturdy build quality. Graphic EQ in companion app. Long continuous battery life.

Closed-off-soundstage. Middling microphone noise handling capability. Default control scheme doesn't have volume controls. No multi-device pairing. Ineffective ANC system. Somewhat boomy out-the-box sound profile.

The Sony WF-SP800N are satisfactory for mixed usage. They’re well-built and have a comfortable, stable fit, so they’re great for sports. Their long continuous battery life and excellent audio leakage performance makes them a good pick for commuting and...

Sony WF-SP800N review

 

The Sony WF-SP800N headphones are truly wireless and conveniently feature adjustable noise cancelling. They particularly impress by having an IP55 rating, meaning not only vague water and dust resistance, but that you can literally rinse them when needed.

Excellent battery life; Quality sound with clean bass; Adjustable noise cancelling levels with optional focus on voice; IP55 rating means you can rinse them

The charging case is too large for pockets; Occasional connection issues

Sony WF-SP800N review

 

The Sony WF-SP800N are legit wireless sports earbuds with strong aesthetics, battery life, and sound, but are missing some features.

Do they warrant their $200 price tag? When compared to the more advanced WH-1000xM3, or category leaders like the Jabra Elite Active 75t? I don’t think so. They can definitely benefit from a price drop. But if you're a fitness junkie who favors...

Sony WF-SP800N review: Smart and sporty true wireless headphones

 

Loaded with smart Sony tech to manage background noise. Are these the headphones for you?

Good noise-cancellation tech ; Great ambient sound system ; App offers lots of customisation ; Great bass and sound quality ; IP55 dust/water resistant

Case is really chunky ; Headphones seem larger than they need to be ; Controls won't cover all your needs

These sporty in-ears offer a lot of Sony's smart ambient sound control and the noise-cancellation tech is the real star. Battery life is only average though, which is surprising given the size of the case. Overall these 'buds sound great and offer...

Sony WF-SP800N review

 

Sony's latest workout earbuds offer active noise cancellation and support for the company's spatial audio format, 360 Reality Audio.

Basic noise cancellation Water-resistant and sweatproof Support for 360 Reality Audio

Tight in the ear A little too bass-heavy Battery life could be better

The Sony WF-SP800N are a sweat-resistant pair of true wireless earbuds that have both active noise cancellation and support for Sony's spatial audio format, 360 Reality Audio. Could one pair of earbuds please both workout enthusiasts and audiophiles?...
