You must have most likely noticed that wireless signals do not travel an infinite distance. The farther a wireless signal goes, the weaker it gets. This loss is known as path loss, and it defines the range of connectivity. This range of connectivity is dependent on the wireless protocol in use like Bluetooth. Three classes offer standard ranges of connectivity with Class 1 devices transmitting at 100 mW with a range of 100 meters or 328 feet. Most Bluetooth headsets and headphones are Class 2 devices that transmit at 2.5 mW with a range of 10 meters or 33 feet. Lastly, Class 3 devices transmit at 1 mW with a range of fewer than 10 meters.

The Sony WF-C500 makes for a comfortable commuting and workout companion. They're very portable, have a long continuous battery life, and offer decent isolation and snug fit, so they should stay in place during a run.

Serves the purpose, No Nonsense choice in that budget range

I have always been using wired earphones from German brands like Sennheiser and Beyer dynamic so far and they were exceptionally good(esp the latter) for the kind of music I listen to but wanted to go for TWS this time following the trend.

German brands were way above my budget this time so I was confused between this and few Jabra models in and around that range ,did some research over the internet and found some connectivity issues and other complaints with Jabra .SONY being reputed brand had good reviews for this model so found this to be a wise choice.

Reviews are as below .


1.)No connectivity issues so far all the functions are working fine and smoothly Devices connected-Iphone, Amazon fire TV.

2.)Sound quality is decent for wireless and that price range

3.)Fit is good.

4.)Battery life is great.

5.)It is SONY so hope we need not worry about reliability.

Cons :

1.) Material quality and finish could be a little better .

2.)Tap function instead of physical buttons on earbuds (This is kind of out of fashion ,at least for me it is difficult to use).

As always Headphone Zone was perfect in their work, cheers:-)

Good for casual listening and work-out

This is my first truly wireless earphones. It sounds pretty decent. I have been using the Sony XB75AP and this doesn't come close to that except this one is wireless. If you're a basshead then you should prolly go for the XB700.

We appreciate your honest review & ratings, Swathy Raj!

Best in price bracket and some more!

I generally use a wired IEM, KZ DQ6 with my Macbook and Airpods Pro with iPhone.
With respect to others reading this, I'm not bragging, I just want to convey that I'm more of a pseudo Audiophile at the moment, hehe.
I am just a beginner at this long journey :))

I got Sony WF C500 because I wanted to replace the wired IEM, with a good TWS with long battery life.
After much research, I found this one, with good reviews and great battery life!

I received the earbuds within 2 days (no kidding! o_o)
The earbuds are great, looks awesome, battery doesn't die.
But the audio was a bit average when using it with Macbook, but with iPhone and the Headphones Connect app initiated, it was really good.
The features are stripped down, like there is no button on the case for bluetooth pairing, instead it was auto when I took out the buds.
Also doesn't support multiple device support, I had to remove and then connect with other device.

But the audio has been really good, as I said earlier, iPhone and Headphones Connect app, works awesome!!!!
Later when I connected to Macbook, I used eqMac to boost the audio, that worked as well! It got really loud!

But I returned it after a day, even tho the buds are awesome, it didn't feel right.
I mean, this is a really, really good earbuds, with great battery, and probably the best audio in this price bracket and then some!
But maybe I wanted a bit more, or maybe I am expecting the unexpected.

Anyway, I requested a return, it was promptly responded, and within a day got returned as well!

I will get store credit soon, and altho I am still contemplating on WF XM4 or WH XM4 (I like earbuds more than headphones), it's not decided yet!
Maybe I will ask one of the gurus from headphonezone :))))
