Sony WF-XB700 wireless earbuds review: Extra bass, extra sacrifice


Sony covers all the basics with an affordable true wireless model in its Extra Bass headphone line. While the WF-XB700 offers perks like on-board controls, good battery life and more, saving some serious cash means sacrificing the most attractive...

Sony WF-XB700 Review


Powerful audio with seriously boosted bass ; Water-resistant build ; Extra-secure fit

No app or EQ ; Wildly boosted bass not for those seeking accurate sonic performance

Sony's relatively affordable WF-XB700 earphones deliver thunderous bass depth in a true wireless design.

Sony WF-XB700 Truly Wireless Review


The Sony WF-XB700 are a decently versatile pair of truly wireless in-ears without many extra features. As part of Sony's 'XB' or 'Extra Bass' series, they're des...

Portable design. Extra punch in the bass range. Decent battery life. Integrated microphone. Don't leak a lot of noise. Stable fit for most users.

Sub-par noise handling performance. Some users may find these headphones uncomfortable. No ANC. No sound customization features.

The Sony WF-XB700 are okay for neutral sound. They're designed to pack an extra punch in the bass range, which fans of bass-heavy genres like EDM and hip-hop may prefer. Their mid-range is well-balanced, so vocals and lead instruments should sound...

Sony WF-XB700 review


For their fairly reasonable price, the Sony WF-XB700 truly wireless headphones offer good bass, up to 18 hours of battery life (with the case) and sport an IPX4 rating, which means they can endure splashes and sweat. All that, along with their snug...

Solid build, great for the gym; Good passive noise isolation; Strong and reliable Bluetooth connection; Clean bass

Highs can get screechy; The mids are weak, sound could have been generally fuller

Sony WF-XB700 Review – Extra But Not Overwhelming Bass


Looking for a pair of TWS earbuds that pack quite a bit of oomph in them? Check out our in-depth Sony WF-XB700 review and see if this is the one for you.

+ Earbuds have good battery life ; + Reliable physical controls ; + Bassy but not too overwhelming ; + Easy to bring around ; + Easy to pair with Bluetooth devices

- No ANC ; - Charging case build quality could be improved ; - Lacks support for high quality audio codecs like aptX ; - Earbuds are a little big ; - Lacks support for Sony app ; - Lacks customization options

The Sony WF-XB700 is a pretty good pair of TWS earbuds. It's definitely not the best but it does have its strengths.

Sony WF-XB700 Extra Bass Review: Basic ‘Buds


One of my biggest issues with many true wireless earbuds is how thin they can sound. They've gotten better over the last few years, but many ‘buds just lack the depth and low end that gives music the fullness we all love to hear. Sony's Extra Bass true...

Strong, stable fit ; Good sound quality

Clunky design ; Cheap-feeling case ; On-device controls lack finesse

Sony WF-XB700 review: Wireless freedom on a budget


Sony's WF-XB700 are the sportier, bassier and - crucially - more affordable alternative to the 1000XM3.

Affordable price point ; Secure fit and sweat/rain resistance ; Very loud without distortion ; Lots of bass

Lots of bass ; Can get a little uncomfortable after extended periods ; A bit plasticky ; Difficult to monitor battery life

A great pair of true wireless in-ears for anyone looking to spend less than premium prices for a pair of earphones. The sound is fun, dynamic, loud and super easy to recommend.
