- Offers noise cancellation for increased focus while working out
- Long battery life between six to eight hours
SONY has launched three new sports wireless headphones for the active, stylish music lover who’s always on the go. The fully functional sports headphones are said to be just as good when worn in a high intensity cardio class, a holistic yoga session or in everyday life.
The truly wireless design frees users to engage in whatever sports they wish without headphone cables getting in the way.
First up is the truly wireless WF-SP700N headphones which combine two features: digital noise cancelling technology to block out noise and a splash-proof design.
Sony’s noise cancelling technology allows users to concentrate and zone in on their training in the noisy environment of a gym, so they can enjoy their music clearly while working out.
On the other hand, if a user is exercising outside, just turn on the Ambient Sound mode to stay aware of the surrounding sounds.
These headphones also offer Sony’s extra bass sound that combines with noise cancelling to give music a deeper, punchier bass edge to focus on, thereby enhancing your performance.
With an IPX4 rating, the WF-SP700N headphones are splash-proof meaning it can be worn even in the rain, or while sweating without damaging them.
Designed with arc supporters, they fit very securely in your ears no matter what activity you are doing. They are available in four colours - pink, yellow, black and white.
The WF-SP700N comes with a compact, one-touch-open charging case and benefits from approximately three hours of battery life plus two additional charges from their case, offering up to nine hours total in between charges.
The WF-SP700N has Near Field Communication (NFC) one-touch connection with the case and gives you the freedom to move without getting caught up in wires, and will even be optimised for the Google Assistant with an update.
Alongside the truly wireless style, Sony brings out two standard wireless in-ear models, the WI-SP600N and the WI-SP500, to offer a range of sports headphones.
The WI-SP600N has the same digital noise cancelling and sound quality technology as the WF-SP700N, plus the same level splash-proof rating.
With this pair, you can keep listening for up to approximately six hours. Their compact earpieces are connected by a discrete band that sits behind the neck and they feature arc supporters which are based on the ergonomics of the ear, to ensure both flexibility and a secure fit.
Finally, the WI-SP500 headphones have an open-type driver unit to recognise ambient sounds naturally, as well as an IPX4 rating, and easy connectivity to your smartphone thanks to NFC.
You can train for longer with the WI-SP500 thanks to approximately eight hours of battery life on one full charge. These headphones have specially-designed, ergonomic and grippy earbuds with rubber dimples - once again ensuring they will not easily slip out whilst you are engaging in your favourite sporting activities.
On top of all that Sony’s noise cancelling headphones will be optimised for the Google Assistant with an update. The Assistant can help you get things done, listen to music, hear your incoming messages, make calls and more.
The Sony WF-SP700N, WI-SP600N and WI-SP500 are now available in Malaysia at US$176 (RM709), US$154 (RM619) and US$82 RM329.25.
