WF-C500 can be said to be now Sony entry-level true wireless headphones, although there is no noise cancellation, and no DSEE Extreme, but it has other basic elements with the flagship earbuds, such as tone tendencies.


The headset case does not support wireless charging and can only be connected to a USB Type-C charging cable. The headset itself has a battery life of 10 hours. The headphones have a fast-charging feature that gives you 1 hour of extra playback time with 10 minutes of charging.
