New Delhi, 16 April, 2018 – Sony India today launched three new sports wireless headphones for the active, stylish music lover who’s always on the go. These high quality, fully functional sports headphones are just as good when worn in a high intensity cardio class, a holistic yoga session or in everyday life.
World’s truly first wireless noise cancelling headphones with splash-proof design
A truly wireless design is important when wearing headphones on the go, as it means the users are free to do whatever sports they wish without headphone cables getting in the way. First up is the truly wireless WF-SP700N headphones which combine, for the first time in the world, two features one needs most when working out: digital noise cancelling technology to block out the chaos around you for focus on your training, and a Splash-proof design.
Sony’s Noise Cancelling technology2 lets the user concentrate and zone in to the training, in the noisy environment of a gym with machines banging and people talking, so one can enjoy music clearly on the treadmill. On the other hand, if one is exercising outside, the user can just turn on the Ambient Sound mode to stay aware of the surrounding sounds. Meanwhile back in the gym, this Ambient Sound mode also lets user hear necessary workout-related sounds. These headphones also offer the famous Sony EXTRA BASS™ sound2 that combined with noise cancelling will give one a deeper, punchier bass edge to focus on enhancing the performance. The companion Sony Headphones Connect app allows to tailor the EQ settings.
Unmatched comfort and secure fit design
Designed with arc supporters, WF-SP700N fit very securely in ears no matter what activity one is doing. WF-SP700N comes with a compact, one-touch-open charging case and benefit from approximately three hours of battery life plus two additional charges from their case, offering up to nine hours total in between charges. With an IPX4 rating, the WF-SP700N headphones are splash-proof and can be used in the rain, or sweat while wearing them and without damaging them. The WI-SP500 headphones have an open-type driver unit to recognize ambient sounds naturally, as well as an IPX4 rating, and easy connectivity to your smartphone thanks to NFC™.
Style options that suits everyone
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 model has the same digital noise cancelling and sound quality technology as the WF-SP700N, plus the same level splash-proof rating. With this pair, one can keep listening for up to approximately 6 hours. Their compact earpieces are connected by a discreet 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. One can train for longer with the WI-SP500 with approximately eight hours of battery life on one full charge – and once finished, simply pop them with the carrying holder. These headphones have specially-designed, ergonomic and grippy earbuds with rubber dimples.
Improved audio performance and convenient connectivity
The WF-SP700N comes with one-touch NFC connection with the case and is compatible with the Sony’s Headphones Connect app, which now features “Quick Sound Settings” so one can recall the favourite settings of equalizer and ambient sound control which can be adjusted with two taps of the headphones button. Also, WF-SP700N and WI-SP600N delivers Extra Bass sound which is perfect for any workout sessions.
Sony India has also introduced three more models namely WH-CH400, WI-C300 and WH-CH500 headphones, with which one can simply touch select NFC-enabled devices to the on-body N-mark for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming content over a Bluetooth® wireless connection. The WH-CH400 and WH-CH500 provides up to 20 hours of continuous, wireless music playback, while the WH-CH300 battery last up to 8 hours delivering a holistic sound experience.
Smarter experience with Google Assistant
Sony’s new headphones will be optimised for the Google Assistant with an update. One can ask questions and tell it to do things, it’s always ready to help. The assistant can help the user get things done, listen to music, hear the incoming messages, make calls and more. Additionally, both the wireless headphones WH-CH400 and WH-CH500 allows conversation to flow freely with easy hands-free calling owing to its built-in microphone.
