Sony WF-C700 Price and Specifications
The Sony WF-C700 is one of Sony’s mid-range TWS earbuds worldwide. The company has currently launched its earbuds in Europe and is likely to bring them to India as well. The WF-C700 will be available in Europe for EUR 130, which is roughly Rs 11,600. The earbuds are available in multiple colour options. These include black, white, lavender and sage green.
MySmartPrice had exclusively revealed the design and colour options of the earbuds days before the launch. The earbuds have an in-ear design and feature silicone ear tips.
Sony’s new wireless earbuds come with support for Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). The feature also provides support for adaptive sound control and adjusts noise cancellation based on the user’s activity. For instance, when you are walking or waiting for the bus, the earbuds will switch to Ambient Mode so that you can be aware of the surrounding. Upon detecting no movement or when you have entered the bus, the earbuds will switch back to ANC.
Each earbud weighs about 4.6 grams. The earbuds come packed in a capsule-shaped charging case made of plastic. Sony is also adding support for its in-house Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE), which can upscale tracks and boost the bass to offer a personalised sound experience. In addition to this, there is support for 360 Reality Audio spatial audio and equaliser fine-tuning via the Headphones Connect app.
The earbuds feature a physical button, which can be programmed for certain tasks such as play/ pause music, activate noise cancellation or voice assistant, etc.
The earbuds are claimed to offer 7.5 hours of music playback with ANC enabled. When ANC is disabled, the earbuds should last for about 10 hours on a single charge, according to Sony. In addition to this, the charging case will add another complete charge cycles. This means that the case will provide up to 15 hours of juice when ANC is enabled or 20 hours when it is disabled.
There is no word on the India launch timeline of the Sony wireless earbuds. However, we can expect them to be available soon. The India price of the WF-C700 could be lower than the European market. However, compared to its predecessor, the WF-C500, the TWS earbuds might attract a higher due to the addition of several features.
