Review: Sony WF-C500 Entry-Level True Wireless Earbuds

Saturday, December 18th, 2021

tech4xmas: If you’re looking for an affordable pair of earbuds with good sound quality that’s synonymous with Sony, the no-frills WF-C500 true wireless earbuds will make a good Christmas gift.

The Sony WF-C500 earbuds offers good audio quality at an affordable price.

The Sony WF-C500 earbuds offers good audio quality at an affordable price.

The WF-C500 offers good value-for-money in terms of sound quality but at the expense of features that are found in other earbuds of similar price range or higher.

At an affordable S$139, the WF-C500 has had to forego frills like noise cancellation, transparency mode, wireless charging and automatic pausing when you remove one or both earbuds.

The earbuds are IPX4 rated so they’re splash resistant.

Freshly unboxed Sony WF-C500 True Wireless Earbuds.

Battery life is reasonable at 10 hours with full charge, plus an additional 10 hours from the pill-shaped charging case.

This is plenty long for me although it’s common for charging cases to provide twice the full charge of their earbuds.

I like that a quick charge of 10 minutes gave me a full hour of mileage.

Here’s my Silver Frost version of the new Huawei FreeBuds 4. Also available is Ceramic White.

I like the physical design for the FreeBuds 4, especially the chrome shiny metallic Silver Frost colourway.

The other colour available is the Ceramic White version, which looks similar to Apple AirPods.

In the box are the earbuds, the charging case, a USB-C cable and the regular documentation that includes a quick-start guide, safety information, warranty card and warranty certificate.

Currently only the wired charging version of the FreeBuds 4 has been launched.

There is a slightly more expensive wireless charging version that is not available yet.
