Sony’s WF-C500 true wireless (TWS) earbuds were launched last year in 2021 in several markets such as the US, the UK, and Australia. Now, the earphones have finally arrived in India. The Sony WF-C500 earbuds come at an affordable price and offer good quality sound, splash resistance, voice control, enhanced battery life, and more. Let’s dive into what the earbuds have to offer.

The Sony WF-C500 TWS earphones come with 5.8mm drivers that have a frequency response range of 20Hz–20,000Hz. The earbuds are equipped with the company’s proprietary Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE), which promises to deliver enhanced audio and call quality.

The WF-C500 come with a cylindrical charging case that takes the total battery life to 20 hours. The earbuds can last for up to 10 hours independently. A quick charge of 10 minutes promises up to an hour of music playback. It takes up to 3 hours to charge it fully. The lack of ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) remains the major sore point at this price point.
