WF-C500 – Small size, uncompromising sound
The WF-C500 truly wireless headphones has a compact design so they fit snugly in your ear. But don’t let their size fool you. The WF-C500 delivers high quality sound thanks to DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine). This restores high frequency sound and fine fade-out sound to the track you’re listening to and create a more authentic listening experience.
Whether you’re listening to electrifying pop or bassy rap, the WF-C500 allows you to tailor your sound using the Equalizer setting in the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app. You can choose from a variety of settings to match sound quality with the music genre you’re listening to or even create and save your own settings.
Comfort is key
Designed to be small and light, the WF-C500 fits securely in your ears, making them the perfect companion wherever you go. Their rounded shape makes them a pleasure to wear, leaving you free to focus on what matters – your music. The headphones’ new ergonomic surface design helps to create a more stable fit.
Compact and Stylish Case
The WF-C500’s cylindrical charging case is small and easy to carry around in a pocket or bag so you can take the earbuds anywhere you go. Its translucent lid with a texture like frosted glass gives the case a stylish, luxurious look and feel[i].
