Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • 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 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

Highlights

  • Bluetooth 5.0 to connect to your device wirelessly and enjoy flawless, uninterrupted listening
  • 15 hours of playback when fully charged lets you listen to your favorite playlists and podcasts all day
  • If you are in a hurry, Fast Charge offers full 60 minutes of playback with only 10 minutes of charge
  • Each earphone has a built-in magnet for tangle-free wearing and storage when not in use
  • A clean and cool design, available in black or white with a matte finish and round cable to match your style
  • Portable, flexible and lightweight design lets you listen to your favorite music comfortably, anytime, anywhere
  • Integrated hands-free calling to answer the call from the connected smartphone by pressing the multifunction button
  • The 9 mm driver units offer dynamic audio performance with deep bass, crisp highs and great clarity
  • Instant access to Siri or Google Assistant to check the weather, get the latest news and more
