Sony WF-C500 Earbuds

Design And Build

Since introducing the world’s first in-ear headphones in 1982 (MDR-E252), Sony has surveyed huge amounts of data relating to ear shapes from around the world. The WF-C500 headphones are the product of that research, combining a shape that matches the ear cavity with a new ergonomic surface design for a more stable fit.

Designed small, these buds fit securely and comfortably in your ears. The rounded shape without edges makes them a pleasure to wear, leaving you free to focus on what matters – your music.

Pocket-sized case

The cylindrical charging case is extremely small and easy to carry around in a pocket or bag so you can take your earbuds everywhere you go. Its translucent lid with a texture like frosted glass gives the case a stylish, luxurious look and feel.

Simple, convenient button setup

The buttons on the WF-C500 headphones not only let you play, stop, or skip through tracks and adjust the volume – but they also offer an easy way to access your smartphone’s voice assistant and make and receive calls hands-free.

Great Listening Experience

With Sony’s Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE), high-frequency sound and fine fade-out sound are restored to the track for a more authentic listening experience. You can also tailor music to your taste using the EQ setting on the Sony Headphones Connect app.

With 360 Reality Audio certified headphones and the Sony Headphones Connect app, optimize your experience by analyzing your ear shape and enjoy the ultimate immersive music experience

DSEE: Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) for more natural-sounding music

When an original music source is compressed, it loses the high-frequency elements that add detail and richness to a track. Our Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) faithfully restores these to produce high-quality sound that’s closer to the original recording.

Sony Headphones Connect App

Tailor sound to your personal preference. Choose from a variety of presets to match sound quality with the genre of music you are listening to. Or create and save your own presets using the EQ Custom feature on the Sony Headphones Connect app.

Key Features that make the Earpads Stand out

Easier, clearer hands-free calling

Conversation flows freely with easy hands-free calling, now clearer than ever with a high-quality built-in microphone. You will not even have to take your phone out of your pocket.

Voice Assistant compatible

One simple button press connects you instantly to your smartphone’s voice assistant so you can find directions, play music, communicate with contacts and so much more.

Find your headphones easily with Fast Pair

Fast Pair makes it easy to pair your headphones with your Android devices. In one tap of pop-up guidance, the WF-C500 enables quick, effortless Bluetooth pairing with your Android devices. Also, you can easily locate where you left your headphones by ringing them or checking their last known location on your smartphone.

Connect to your PC easily with Swift Pair

Swift Pair makes it quick and easy to pair your WF-C500 headphones with your Windows 10 computer via Bluetooth. Pop-up pairing guidance appears on nearby Windows 10 devices when pairing mode is selected.

IPX4 Rating

You need not worry about splashes, sweat, and dust. With an IPX4 water resistance rating, splashes and sweat will not stop these headphones – so you can keep on moving to the music.

One earbud, ideal for multitasking

If you want to listen to your music while still being able to have a conversation, remove one earbud only from the charging case and use it as normal.

Stable Connectivity

A Bluetooth chip, which transmits sound to the left and right ears simultaneously, coupled with an optimized antenna design, ensures a stable connection and outstanding listening. Low audio latency makes for enjoyable viewing too.


Enjoy up to 20 hours of battery life on full charge and 1 hour of playback on 10 minutes of quick recharge. The earbuds on full charge deliver 10 hours of playtime and a full 20 hours with the charging case.

Pros and Cons of Sony WF-C500 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

  • Small, lightweight, and compact design
  • Conveniently small and portable charging case
  • WF-C500 TWS Earbuds come packaged with various sizes of eartips
  • Work with Sony Headphone Connect App for audio sound customization
  • The earbuds come installed with DSEE for studio-quality sound output
  • IPX4 Rating-splash and sweat proof
  • Excellent charge with 10 hours in the earbuds and 20 hours with the charging case
  • The buds have no active noise cancellation

  • Sony WF-C500 TWS Earbuds only supports AAC and SBC Bluetooth codecs


For a budget, average user, the Sony WF-C500 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds seem okay with excellent sound output and multiple unique features that help enhance the user experience. The DSEE, Sony App support, IPX4 Rating, and stable internet connectivity make the buds awesome to own and plug into your ears. However, there are compromises made to the Sony WF-C500 earbuds, making them vulnerable to real competition from its rival brands such as JBL, Soundcore, Oraimo, OnePlus, Aker, and Bose for the budget and mid-range wireless buds arena. Lack of ANC, no wireless charging, and an inferior IP rating give other brands’ models such as JBL Tune 130NC TWS, Under Armour Streak, JBL Wave Beam, OnePlus Nord Buds, Soundcore Life DOT 3i an advantage.

Alternative Wireless Earbuds

  • Soundcore Life DOT 3i
  • JBL Wave Beam
