- WF-SP800N also supports customisation via the Sony Headphones Connect companion app. Then, you get voice assistant support.
- Finally, since these are sports-focused earphones, IP55 water and dust resistance comes standard. However, high-res Bluetooth codecs are absent, only SBC and AAC codecs are supported.
- The XB700, which is a part of Sony’s Extra Bass series, is much more affordable at Rs 9,999.
- These buds also have a combined battery life of 18 hours, but ANC is not present here.
