The best Sony WF-XB700 headphones review
Headphones wireless WF-XB700 Sony offer one very good quality of sound , as well as a design quite daring and long life of the battery . They are not as known as the AirPods Apple, but Sony is positioned as one competitor very worthy in the market for wireless headphones.
I’ve spent some time with these earbuds to see how they perform in everyday life , examining their design , features , audio quality , and value for money . Still reading to read my review complete .
Design and build quality
Sony headphones WF-XB700 are available either black or in a more conventional or on a blue dark more daring ( this last color is that of the model I’ve been able to try ). Res Pecto to the material, we find with a cover that leaves see too fast that is made of plastic.
However, we like to see as the design of the earbuds adopts a form that seems to mimic the inside of the shape of your ear.
These headphones are quite comfortable , but are not exactly subtle in their design . The exterior is quite large , which wants to say that soon will see that take positions (unless you have the hair length). This is something to keep in mind if a more minimal look is preferred .
On the other hand , the 8 grams of each one of the headphones makes it be something more heavy than some other models , however, are still perfectly comfortable to wear for hours.
In spite of being bulky , headphones fit so securely in your ear . I was able to move without being released at any time . It is worth mentioning that are different pads to can choose the Tamna that best is fit to your ear . A correct choice of the size of the pad will also that the quality of sound is the proper .
On the edge of each of the headphones are manual control buttons that can be used to dock the headphones, adjust the volume , skip tracks, and pause / play the audio. No pads touch , but fortunately the buttons do not are annoying at all.
The Sony WF-XB700 come in a charging case ( like any other headphone model of this type ). In this case it is translucent and does play with the color of the buttons . In the part below have one slot USB-C for loading and in the box will include a USB cable short . However, you can load it with any another USB cable standard if you want something a little more long.
When it comes to quality sound, the bass take all the limelight in the WF-XB700 headphones from Sony. If you’re listening to tunes with more serious as dubstep, rock or music electronics , notice really to what we and we mean . The combination of this and adjustment sure the make a choice ideal for use during the exercise .
The audio is bright and detailed when it goes up the volume on this type of track , but does not match the all when you are listening to a volume more low. The audio continues to be clear, but not can lower the bass if it does not fit what you’re listening .
If, of course , looking for something that is more rich in media and high – or usually more balanced – then it is better to look for a pair of headphones with settings adjustable like the Samsung Galaxy Buds +.
The WF-XB700 Sony have a controller 12 mm and a range of frequency from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz No. Support for codec aptX in these cocoons – only SBC and AAC – it which is slightly negative , however , the audio quality is still good without it .
Specifications and tools
In addition to use WF-XB700 Sony headphones to listen to music , also can answer calls with them or match them with Google or Siri Assistant, using the microphone of the headset to control the phone in place of the handset.
The duration of the battery in the Sony WF-XB700 is pretty good . You out of the box you around for nine hours of play , and if you count the loads offered the box , the figure increases to 18 hours approximately . I used headphones comfortably for a day and a half without going below 20 %.
The time of loading the container is about two hours from the time that is allowed to use until it is filled , at which , taking into account the time it takes over , is decent . If you do n’t have much time , a ten minute charge will give you about an hour of playtime .
No ANC ( cancellation active of the noise ) in Sony headphones WF-XB700. However, this feature s or what appears on the actual headphones wireless a price more high, so it is expected . However, the quality of sound that is obtained is sufficiently good as to block the noise outside, especially with the music with more bumps and bass .
The earbuds do not come with an application of accompaniment , so that is a bit disappointing considering that many rivals yes what do . This also means you do not have control manuals on the output of sound in them , at least you set all the controls for volume on your PC.

If you are looking for a wireless headset that fit well, produce levels of low crisp and have one excellent duration of the battery , then the WF-XB700 headphones from Sony are no doubt one option convincing .
They are also a great choice if you are looking for a headset that accompany your workouts , especially thanks to the classification IP that you can use them abroad without importing the conditions weather .
They are very bulky in terms of the design , and the lack of application to customize even more the sound is a pity . However, the price they have now , small deficiency s as this are acceptable .
