Sony has announced a new pair of earbuds today, and while they may not be the next-gen or premium like the WF-1000XM3, they’re definitely more affordable. The Sony WF-XB700 Earbuds come in at under R3 000, but still get features like fast-charging.
For specifics, they use the company’s EXTRA BASS system, which enhances the low-end in music. Sony promises that doing so won’t come at the cost of high-end clarity, however, making sure that vocals are still crisp and clean.
As you’d expect, the WF-XB700 use Bluetooth for connecting to your smartphone or laptop. They recharge in the supplied charging case, with up to 18 hours of battery life from a full charge. 10 minutes plugged in is enough for 60 minutes of music playback.
Unfortunately, unlike the WF-1000XM3 earbuds, there’s no active noise cancellation. You do, though, get what Sony is calling an “Ergonomic Tri-hold structure” to keep them in your ears even if you’re exercising, along with IPX4 ratings for water resistance: they’ll hold up to splashes in the rain, or sweat in the gym, for example. Sony will be offering the WF-XB700 in black and blue and will be will be priced at R2 999 when they go on sale this month
