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: 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: 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.

Sony WF-SP800N Review


Powerful audio performance with deep bass and sculpted highs ; Excellent battery life ; Water-resistant build ; App has ANC and EQ controls ; Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support

Limited controls ; Large charging case offers less extra battery life than usual

Solid noise cancellation, powerful audio performance, and a water-resistant build make the Sony WF-SP800N a strong contender in this price range

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 sports-oriented, truly wireless earbuds with quite a few extra features. They're well-built, quite comfortable, and do a great job of stay...

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

Closed-off-soundstage. No multi-device pairing. No volume controls by default. Mic struggles with noise handling in loud places. Ineffective ANC system. Somewhat boomy out-the-box sound profile.

The Sony WF-SP800N are alright for neutral sound. Their default sound profile is bass-heavy, suitable for genres like EDM and hip-hop, but while vocals and lead instruments are present and clear, they sometimes lack finer details. These headphones also...

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.

Deep, customizable sound ; Superb battery life (on a single charge) ; IP55 water-resistant ; Tons of features via Sony Headphones app ; Modest active noise cancellation

Very buggy ; Missing QN1e processor and other signature Sony features ; Bulky, protruding design

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 – Noise Cancelling for the Active Lifestyle


Looking for a pair of TWS earbuds fit for sports or an active lifestyle? Check out our in-depth Sony WF-SP800N review and see if this is the one for you.

+ Earbuds have good battery life ; + Good sound quality ; + Fits securely in your ears ; + IP55 ; + Adaptive Sound / noise cancelling ; + Bassy but nowhere near overwhelming ; + Easy to bring around

- Charging case battery life could be better ; - Lacks support for high quality audio codecs ; - Finicky touch-sensitive controls ; - A little pricey

The Sony WF-SP800N is a solid choice for sports earbuds, but the touch-sensitive controls could use some work.
