Sony launches new range of wireless headphones and Bluetooth speakers
Sony has launched six wireless headphones and three Bluetooth speakers in India. The headphones WF-SP700N, WI-SP600N, WI-SP500, WI-C300, WH-CH400, and WH-CH500 are priced at Rs. 12,990, Rs. 9,990, Rs. 4,990, Rs. 2,990, Rs. 3,790, and Rs. 4,990, respectively. The wireless speakers, SRS-XB41, SRS-XB31, and SRS-XB21, are priced at Rs. 13,990, Rs. 9,990, and Rs. 7,990, respectively. All products come under Sony's Extra Bass range.
The WF-SP700N is reportedly the world's first noise-canceling earphone with a splash-proof design. It features Google Assistant support, a 6mm driver unit, and an Ambient Sound mode that allows users to filter surrounding noise. Its case doubles as a charging dock, so the earphones have a three-hour battery life and the case can provide an additional charging of six hours.
The Wi-SP600N has a neckband-style design. It features an in-line remote, is water resistant, and has a six-hour battery life. The WI-SP 500 comes with 13.5mm open drivers for a clear, ambient sound and has an eight-hour battery life. While the WH-CH500 and WH-CH400 are over-the-ear headphones with 20 hours of battery life, the WI-C300 has an in-ear design with an eight-hour battery life.
The three Bluetooth speakers are washable, IP67 dust- and water-resistant, have built-in accelerometers, and can be connected to three devices simultaneously. They have a new fabric finish that makes them sound more natural. Under their "Party Booster" feature, they can be connected with 100 different Bluetooth speakers. While the SRS-XB41 and SRS-XB31 have a 24-hour battery life, the SRS-XB21 has a 12-hour battery life.
