Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • Sony WF-XB700 Truly Wireless Headphones are part of Sony's "EXTRA BASS" series, and the first thing you'll notice when you listen to them is the bass. The bass is deep and punchy (not muddy or bloated) with respectful details and the overall quality of the music is quite fun to listen to
  • Priced at $129 (much less than $199 Sony WF-1000XM3), the Sony WF-XB700 is a solid set of truly wireless headphones with nice sound and a lot of features
  • The sweat and water-resistant design of these IPX4-certified headphones makes them the ideal companion during outdoor running or workouts in the gym
  • The earbuds are designed to rest on the ears at three different points and come with three different sizes of tips to create an ergonomic fit and increase comfort
  • There is a small button on the bottom edge of both earbuds to adjust volume levels, control music playback, skip tracks, answer phone calls and connect to your phone's voice assistant
  • Their 9-hour battery life on a single charge is quite solid and charging case holds an additional full charge. If you're in a hurry, there's also a quick charge feature that gives you an extra hour of music playback after just 10 minutes inside the case
  • Sony WF-XB700 wireless earbuds offer respectable call quality, people at the other end of the call are able to hear you clearly in moderately noisy environments
  • They provide brilliant sound isolation as the tips create the perfect seal that blocks most external sounds
  • Two color options to choose from: black and blue depending on your style and preferences

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • If you like subtle sound, these headphones are not for you as they are tuned for bass-heavy music like EDM, Mettle, Rap or Funk
  • The contoured design of Sony's new earbuds is interesting but a little strange; they are huge and quite protrude from the ears. This design is impressively polarized for users who just want stylish and sleek earbuds
  • The build quality of these earbuds and charging case is nothing special, it is all textured hard plastic that looks cheap and low quality
  • Some users may feel uncomfortable wearing them for a long period because the exterior of the earbuds protruding from the ears is a bit heavy
  • Sony WF-XB700 earbuds don't have the Auto Pause feature when you remove them from your ear, an omission of small but important function
  • Sony has a full-featured app for its high-end truly wireless range, but not for wf-XB700, it means you won't be able to customize the settings to your liking
  • There is no ambient sound mode that lets some external sounds get in, this feature is quite useful to keep you aware about the surroundings while running or cycling on a busy city road
  • There is no support for high resolution audio codecs such as aptX, aptXHD or aptXLL for HD audio quality


  • Truly wireless design with Bluetooth wireless technology for maximum freedom
  • EXTRA BASS for a deep and powerful sound to boost up your energy in the gym
  • Enjoy up to 18 hours (9 + 9) of listening thanks to the charging case
  • 10-minute quick charge gives you up to 1 hour of music playback
  • Convenience of clear and simple hands-free calling
  • IPX4 water resistance to protect the headphones from rain and sweat
  • Ergonomic design for a comfortable and secure fit during extreme workout sessions
  • Play, stop or skip songs, adjust the volume, access the voice assistant or receive calls directly from the buds
