Sony Philippines is one of the people’s go-to for audio devices. Their latest one, the WF-C500, is for those who want an affordable but still capable pair of TWS earphones.
The Sony WF-C500 tries to appeal to the youngsters with its vibrant colors: Orange and Green. But if you want something more subtle, it also comes in White and Blue. It features a compact and ergonomic in-ear design.
Sony boasts its Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, which can apparently restore fine fade-out sound and high-frequency sound. You can play with the settings and equalization via the Headphones Connect mobile app.
The WF-C500 has 360 Reality Audio for a 360-degree listening experience that’s better felt in music or live concerts.
It then comes with an ultra-sleek pill-shaped charging case that can easily fit in your pocket. It has a nice texture and color tones, too. Together with this case, it can last for up to 10 hours. A quick 10-minute charge via its USB Type-C port can already provide an hour of music.
Each bud has an ergonomic surface design for easy operation. You can play, stop, or skip music and even adjust the volume. You can also press a button to answer/drop calls or summon your smartphone’s voice assistant.
Speaking of which, it has Google’s Fast Pair technology for a more seamless setup process on Android devices. Swift Pair for PC machines are also present.
For the specs heads out there, the WF-C500 has 5.8mm speaker drivers, pairs to your phone via Bluetooth 5.0 with a 10m range, support for SBC and AAC, a weight of only 35g, and IPX4 water protection if plan to do workouts with it.
The Sony WF-C500 is now available in the Philippines for Php4,999. You can get it at Sony stores and dealers and through their shops in Lazada and Shopee.
