Reasons Why You Should Buy Them


The Sony WI C310 Bluetooth wireless in ear headphones come in three different color options such as Black, Blue and White to be chosen according to individual tastes

If you are a gym freakout, then you will love the sound quality of the Sony WI-C310 Bluetooth, which is enriched with lots of low end bass, accurately reproduced mids and crisp highs to keep your energy up in the gym

Thanks to the light and flexible neckband design, Sony WI C310 are quite comfortable earphones and included silicone tips of three different sizes help you to find the perfect fit

They have built-in 3-button remote control and microphone to answer calls, play/pause music, control volume levels, skip tracks and connect to the phone's voice assistant (Siri or Google Assistant)

When not in use, simply attach the two buds magnetically to the back and wear them as a pendant to keep them safe

Their battery life is pretty solid and can easily deliver around 15 hours of music playback on a single charge, which is good enough to enjoy music for an entire day or a couple of gym sessions

The WI C310 wireless in ear headphones also support fast charging, which offers up to 60 minutes of music playback with just 10 minutes of charging time

Sony WI-C310 Bluetooth headphones leak very little sound and you can use them with confidence in the office or in the library without distracting the people around you even at high volumes

In addition to supporting AAC and SBC audio codec, Bluetooth 5.0 offers seamless connectivity and superior audio quality

Sony WI C200 wireless Bluetooth earphones are a more economical version of Sony’s WI C310 wireless around-the-neck headphones with almost identical looks, build quality, features and two-color options black and white to choose from

They are lightweight headphones with a flexible neckband design that can easily rest around your neck and come with three tip sizes to help you find the most comfortable and stable fit

If you are a fitness freak, you will love the sound quality of the Sony WI C200. 9mm driver units provide plenty of low-end bass to keep your energy high in the gym without overwhelming the vocals and instruments

With the integrated 3-button remote control and the microphone, you can answer phone calls, play/pause music, control volume levels, skip tracks and connect to Siri or Google Assistant

They offer decent passive noise isolation to enjoy your music in moderately noisy environments like working in the office or relaxing on the beach

Their battery life of around 15 hours on a single charge is pretty solid, which is good enough to enjoy music for a full day or a few gym workout sessions

With the fast charging technology, Sony WI C200 wireless in ear headphones can provide music playback for up to 1 hour with a charge of only 10 minutes

They leak very little sound and do not distract people around you, even at high volumes, which makes them perfect for enjoying music while working in the office or studying in library

Thanks to its flexible design, the Sony WI C200 wireless can be easily folded into a more compact format and fits in most pockets or a bag

When not in use, simply attach the two buds magnetically to the back and wear them as a pendant around the neck to keep them safe

For $29, they're inexpensive in-ear headphones that offer almost all of the features of Sony's higher-end WI C310 model, have decent sound quality, and a comfortable fit

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them


The cable connected to both buds is a little longer than usual and can be uncomfortable during outdoor activities

The rubberized remote control buttons are slightly on the soft side and lack the tactile feedback that we found on the BeatsX headphones

Their build quality is just average, the slim cables and thin plastic modules on both sides don't feel like durable, and you need to be a little extra careful with them

The buds are small in size and don't go too deep in your ear canal, which is why they don't offer a perfect seal to filter out external low-frequency sounds while commuting

The inline microphone offers below-average call quality, it appears thin, noticeably subdued and there is a lack of details when making calls in moderately noisy environments

There is no automatic pause function when you remove the bud from your ear, music will play continuously unless you stop it manually

There is no companion app support for customization such as EQ adjustments or creating music profiles like other high-end Sony in-ear headphones

Even if they have Bluetooth 5.0, there is no multi-device connectivity, which means that only one device can be connected at a time

There is significant latency when watching movies or games in high definition due to the lack of support for high quality audio codecs such as aptX, aptX LL, aptX HD or LDAC

There is no protective case or carrying pouch is included that can protect Sony WI-C310 Bluetooth headset in the backpack when traveling

The buds are small in size and don't go too deep into your ear canal to provide a perfect seal against ambient noise, making them less ideal for noisy and crowded environments

The cable that connects to both buds is slightly longer than usual and can be uncomfortable for outdoor activities

The rubberized remote-control buttons are slightly on the soft side and lack the tactile feedback that we found on other competitor models in the same price range

The bass and treble are good as long as you get a good fit, otherwise they sound thinner than they should

They are not ideal for watching HD movies or playing games, there is significant latency due to the lack of support for high quality audio codecs like aptX, aptX LL, aptX HD and LDAC

Their bass heavy tuning with a little more treble sharpness (which is uneven at very high frequencies) is ideal for gym sessions to give you a little extra kick, but not for relaxed, laid back listening

No "auto shut-off" mode means that the battery will be fully discharged if you keep them connected, better to turn them off manually every time you take them out of your ears

The inline microphone offers below-average call quality, it appears thin, noticeably subdued and lacks details when making calls and is good for use only in quiet rooms

The materials used are of low quality and do not feel premium at all. You need to be a little extra careful with them, as thin plastic modules on both sides and rubberized cables connected to both buds don't feel like durable at all

No protective case or carrying pouch is included (Its somewhat OK for the asking price) which can protect them in the backpack while you are traveling

Even if they have Bluetooth 5.0, there is no multi-device connectivity, which means that only one device can be connected at a time and they are not NFC compliant, either

Sony WI-C200 wireless headphones are not supported by the Sony Connect app (compatible with expensive Sony headphones only) for customization like EQ adjustments or creating music profiles to your liking
