Small size, uncompromising sound
Our WF-C500 truly wireless earbuds are designed compact to fit snugly in your ear. But don't let their size fool you. They deliver high-quality sound that's rich in detail, thanks to DSEE technology, which restores fine fade-out sound and high-frequency sound. These Bluetooth® headphones are smartphone-friendly too, very easy to use and come in a choice of four colors.
More delightful listening experience
With our 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 own taste using the EQ setting on the Sony | Headphones Connect app.
Make your music more natural
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. [A] Restoration [B] Fine sound restoration
Your sound, just how you like it
Tailor sound to your personal preference. Choose from a variety of presets to match sound quality with the genre of music you're listening to. Or create and save your own presets using the EQ Custom feature on the Sony│Headphones Connect app.
Small and light, a great 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.
Ergonomic Surface Design
Since introducing the world's first in-ear headphones in 1982 (MDR-E252), we've 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.
Go anywhere, 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.
Easy button operation
The buttons on the WF-C500 headphones not only let you play, stop, or skip through tracks and adjust the volume—they also offer an easy way to access your smartphone's voice assistant and make and receive calls hands-free.
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.
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 won't even have to take your phone out of your pocket.
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.
Listen all day, charge in minutes
Enjoy up to 20 hours of listening thanks to the handy charging case. And if you need to top up in a hurry, 10 minutes of quick charging gives you up to an hour of extra play time.
Splashes and sweat, no problem
With an IPX4 water resistance rating, splashes and sweat won't 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 as normal.
Stable, reliable Bluetooth® connectivity
A Bluetooth® chip, which transmits sound to left and right ears simultaneously, coupled with optimized antenna design, ensures a stable connection and outstanding listening. Low audio latency makes for enjoyable viewing too.
So immersive. So real.
Immerse yourself in sound all around you. As real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real. These headphones let you enjoy 360 Reality Audio.
