The Sony WFXB700 True Wireless Headphones are a great value for money. These are an improvement over the WF-1000X, Sony Wf-xb700 Black Friday Deals 2021 WF-SP700N, as well as our second-favorite Sony true Wireless earbuds. These are the result of years of hard work and dedication by the Sony audio design team. They started with the Sony WF1000X, which was divided, before creating the Sony WF1000XM3 with active Noise Cancellation. These are still the most true wireless earbuds Sony has ever made… but the WFXB700 (reviewed right here) is more affordable, accessible, and more appealing than the Apple AirPods. Are you unsure if wireless headphones with a comfortable fit and a punchy, bass-heavy audio and an IPX4 rating with 18 hours battery life between the case and the buds are right for your needs? This is how it felt to wear them for a week.
The Sony WFXB700 is the latest addition of Sony’s Extra Bass headphones and earbuds series. It was released in April 2020. These earbuds were released alongside the Sony WF-XB700N Noise-Canceling Headphones. They also hit shelves at the same time. The Sony WF-XB700 true wireless earbuds are among the most affordable and cost $129 (around AU$130). This is a significant savings compared with the $199 (PS169; AU$319) SonyWF-1000XM3. But remember, the latter has active noise cancelling while the former doesn’t. The Sony WF-XB700 is a good choice compared to other wireless earbuds. It is also a lot cheaper than the Apple AirPods at $139 (PS159, AU$239), which dominates this form factor in terms sales.
The choice of which earbuds to buy will depend on which mobile operating system you are using. For iOS users, the AirPods have some neat tricks. But for Android users, the AirPods offer a lot more. These earbuds feel more spacious because of the way Sony made them. This is in contrast to other wireless earbuds that it has produced previously, which have been sleek and sporty.

Sony has a tendency to make oblong, round buds that look almost like little beans. Although the WF-XB700 shares some design elements with its predecessors it looks almost identical to an outer circular disc. You’ll find buttons around the edges of each disc. On the left earbud, volume up/down is available. On the right, play/pause/skip is available. They can be used to activate your voice assistant or accept calls. However, it is not very clear how to do that.
These earbuds are made up of three main parts: the tip, which fits into the ear canal, and the middle section, which houses the drivers. The outer shell houses the battery. Although this three-level design doesn’t make sense for space, it is very polarizing and will not work well for those who want sleek, slim buds. Due to their size, they should fill the entire ear canal. They are light and comfortable, with a low weight. The tight seal also makes them great for long-term use. Sony includes several eartips in the box, so if the default ones don’t work properly, it is an added bonus. Their design also allows for a slightly larger battery to be placed inside the buds. Sony claims that the battery lasts for about nine hours on one charge and nine hours when used with the charging case. This brings the total time to around 18 hours.

This is almost the best battery life on the market. The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus can play music for 11 hours outside of their case, while the Apple AirPods are only able to play music for five hours before they have to return in their case. The case comes with the Sony WFXB700 and is quite slim. It has a transparent cover that lets you see the status of your earbuds. The charging process can be initiated by simply inserting the buds into the mini-pin docks, and then waiting for the red LED light to turn on. You can recharge the case as well as the buds by plugging them into the USB port of your computer using the USB-to USB C.
How do they sound? We were concerned that the Extra Bass series would make them sound bloated, muddy, and restricted. They are, however, nothing like that. The bass is what you will notice the most when listening to them. It’s there, but it feels tighter and more punchy than it does muddy and bloated. It’s music that is actually quite enjoyable to listen to, even though it may not be exactly what the artist wanted. Unfortunately, the midrange takes a hit. YouTube videos are noticeably more quiet than music and this is most likely due to the lower-powering midrange. This doesn’t mean YouTube and Netflix are not possible to listen to. They are. However, it would be nice if the EQ could be adjusted based on what content is currently being played – for example, via Sony’s Headphones App. It’s not possible right now.
Sony wants these to be music-focused, with them double as a great gym companion. That’s why they are IPX4 water- and sweat-resistant. They seem to have a fairly stable connection. We were able to walk around the house with our phone in one place and didn’t feel any dropout. However, they are not noise cancelling so you can hear all conversations happening nearby. Sony could improve the soundstage and support aptX, a higher-resolution audio codec capable of broadcasting HD audio, but Sony has not yet done so. They are not perfect, but they will be enjoyed by most people. They have a remarkable battery life. After listening to them for three consecutive days for eight hours per day, we still received a message stating that the battery was 100% full every time we put on our earbuds. This number drops by 30% so be aware. Sony Wf-xb700 Black Friday Deals 2021 Sony claims that the battery life is approximately 18 hours between the earbuds, their charging case, and the charger. We found that number to have been accurate… but maybe a bit too conservative. Advertisement
