It took some time, however now we lastly have a brand new true wi-fi noise-canceling sports activities mannequin from Sony: the WF-SP800N.

It is positively a major improve over the WF-SP700N, which got here out in 2018, and its “arcs” (sports activities fins) lock the buds in your ears. Simply be sure you get a decent seal from one of many included ear ideas or else each the sound and noise canceling will likely be lackluster.

The WF-XB700 is within the firm’s Further Bass line and lists for $130. I’ve tried them and actually preferred their match. Their sound high quality would not measure as much as that of the WF-1000XM3 or WF-SP800N (it lacks some readability), however in case you like bass, they’re first rate sounding earbuds. I believed they had been slightly costly at $130. At $52 off or $78, they’re a way more engaging possibility.
