I. Noice Cancelling (NC):
The NC of these earbuds are nothing short
of Absolutely Amazing, bar none!
To anyone who says differently, they probably
have not taken the time to form a proper
Here’s a good way to test for a proper seal:
1. Wear the earbuds, NC set to ON, in a noisy
(I used a stretch of highway in a car).
2. See if lightly pushing inward on one (or both)
earbuds causes the outside sound to become
If it gets quieter, you do not have a good fit.
Try to form a better seal: push inward, twist,
pull outward a tad, whatever ...
If you still can not get a proper seal,
change to another tip size.
You may even find you need different sizes for
each ear. I wear the default size in left,
and one size up in the right.
I think many owners will probably not be enjoying
the full NC that these units are capable of.
I want to confirm that there is a vast difference
in each of the three levels:
Ambient Sound: outside sound is passed
through with a very slight amplification.
Ambient Sound Off: the earplug effect solely
Noise Cancelling: ambient sound is cancelled
to various degrees based on the app setting
with an optional checkbox dedicated to
pass/not pass the vocal range of frequencies.
When fully engaged, all car road noise was
completely eliminated; and you experience
driving in silence while feeling all the
bumps in the road. Wow !!!
In testing the battery usage, I wore the earbuds
all day at work with NC on. Although, I do not
believe these earbuds are AS-COMFORTABLE-AS my
Jabra Elite 65t's, they are still fairly
comfortable. I did not suffer from discomfort or
fatigue after wearing them a little over five hours.
UPDATE: I have not worn my Jabra's in over
a week now; I decided to use them. Now, I
feel it's just a different fit, and I
actually feel the Sony's are more comfortable
than the Jabra's.
III. Battery Usage: (not quite as good as they claim)
BLUF: 5.25 hrs.
This was with Noice Cancellign ON, DSEE HX
on, & Bluetooth focus on Sound Quality vs
Connection This may be why my experiences are
below other reports where battey usage is
right on the mark.
The battery readings (on the iOS app anyway)
jump in steps: 100%, 70%, 50% and 20%. Both
left and right units drain in unison. You can
see one unit at 70% and the other change 70%
to 50%, but that apparent difference is only
shown for 2 mins, and the other unit will
drop from 70% to 50% to match. I.e., they
"bump down" farily close to the same time,
but not exactly at same time.
I ran with NC on and loud AC unit at work for
3.75 hours before reaching 20% and hearing
the first voice prompt to recharge units.
Continuing, I achieved 5 1/4 hours of usage
before the units gave a second recharge
prompt, and then powered themselves off.
IV. Have Two Devices? Enjoy "Hot Swappable"
Bluetooth Connection !!!
Hot Swappable BT Connection is a feature that
many have missed in reviews. If you plan to
connect with multiple devices, this should be
important to you.
Hot Swappable means you do not have to
disconnect from one device (yourself) in
order to switch to another device. The
earbuds will disconnect from the first device
automatically when you connect to a second
It's fast and reliable! You'll get audio
confirmations too: "Bluetooth disconnected,
(This feature works for any device that has
ever been connected before. If it's the first
time the device has connected, this feature
will not work.)
A Word on the Blue Blinking Light Thing ...
There were some very early on concerns that
the blinking blue lights would be annoying at
night in comments on you tube - it’s nothing
to be concerned about - the lights don’t
blink when you’re wearing them - they signal
Bluetooth connection and allow you to know
when they auto power off if you take them
off, and don’t place them in the case. There
is an off/on setting to auto power off in 5
mins if they are not being worn, and not in
Outstanding sound signature !
All the detailed items listed above
-especially hot swap bluetooth.
The touch panels are reliable, ( not
my experience with Sennheisers).
Phone quality is good if you’re in a quiet environment;
Otherwise, hit and miss - too unreliable at times.
No direct volume control from the units themselves
(wondering if future firmware will address this)
The Sony Connect app (ironically) has to re-connect
if you ever switch to another app, blank the screen,
or minimize it. The app should be named
the Re-Connect app.
UPDATE Sept 8, 2019. ANC comparison with overEar
So I’ve heard how much better over-the-ear
headphones are for active noise cancelling.
Yesterday, I was passing by a Best Buy, and
had these earbuds with me. I wanted to do a
head-to-head comparison of these,
the WH 1000xm3’s and the Bose 700.
I didn’t play any music - just Noise Cancelling
comparison. I stayed about 40 mins ... and heard
a few different background environments -
overhead speaker announcements, conversations
of customers, and loud deep base entertainment
demos ... I walked away with the following three
(a) no headphones offer perfect noise cancelling.
They all do a fantastic job - but none are perfect.
(b) I was disappointed with the over-the-ear
headphones not being MUCH MUCH better
than these earbuds. If the over-the-ear
headphone were better, then it wasn’t by very
much at all - it’s not a STARK difference, it’s barely
perceivable if at all.
(Yeah, I know, I’m going to be accused of being
paid by Sony to write this - but this was my
experience. I was thinking that if over-the-ear
phones were drastically better, I may walk out of
the store purchasing the Bose 700 -as those are
best for phone calls.)
(c) There is absolutely no way in the world that I
would buy either the Sony WH 1000xm3, or the
Bose 700 over-the-ear headphones - not when
these wf 1000xm3’s arepractically keeping up with
NC-ing with very little difference, and they’re
cheaper, and a lot more convenient.
I remain very happy with purchasing these units
and my only complaint is phone call quality for the
person on the other end.

So far, here's the pros:
Battery life is directly on the mark with what's advertised. I used it in my office with noise cancelling on, volume at mid-levels from 11-5 before the left earphone actually died. The right still had 20% - maybe using the touch controls for playback a lot causes quicker battery drain?
Along with battery levels, charging from the case also seems on the mark. After the earbuds died, I threw them in the case and left for a quick walk. 20 minutes later, my right earbud went from 20%->100%, and the left from 0%->70%. Excellent imo, this more or less means I can just recharge my earbuds whenever I have a brief conversation with a coworker and never have to worry about the battery dying on me.
Music quality is great. These sound excellent on the "Excited" EQ preset to me, and I rotate through all kinds of genres, from (electronic) hardcore, 80s city pop, 00's nu and death metal, pop and R&B and rap.
The noise cancelling - honestly, on a first wear, I was slightly disappointed. I had read the pre-release reviews about how great it was, but when I started to use it out the box, I could still hear people talking to me. Really, these won't block out loud/direct conversations, but that doesn't diminish their usefulness. It completely eliminates the fairly loud HVAC noise in my office, and makes mouse clicks/non-mechanical keyboard usage fade out. And that's without music playing. Once you add music to the mix, these really do block out the world really effectively, even on low volumes. I actually had a coworker today try to get my attention for a minute, of which I noticed nothing, before they resorted to a loud knock on my desk, which I actually thought was a part of the ambient soundtrack I was listening to at first. Very impressed with the noise cancelling when combined with music, and even on its own with my tempered expectations. They're not earplugs, but they're pretty darn close.
A quick note: Using full noise cancelling when walking outside results in some annoying wind noise, but there's a preset called "wind noise" one step below full noise cancelling in the app that will completely kill that wind noise and still block other noises very well.
Connectivity is great. No issues connecting it to my TV, computer, Android phone, or iPad. Protip: Hold the touch sensitive button on both ears for 7 seconds to enter pairing mode for connecting to a computer or non-Android/IOS device easily.
The cons (aka, why I'm saying 4.5 stars):
No wireless charging. It's a shame with the bulky case, and would make things way more convenient.
No volume controls/option for volume controls. Having to open use my device to change volume all the time is kind of more annoying than I originally thought it would be.
No way to quickly change noise cancelling modes without the app.
Those last two points are fairly understandable given the small(ish) size of the buds, but still would have been nice. The ambient pass-through mode does work perfectly once you enable it in the app though.
Overall, I really like these things and I'm super satisfied with the risk I took ordering them before reviews came out. If you're on the fence, I'd buy these. I'll update this review in the future if I have any other complaints/issues, but I'm honestly really happy with these.
EDIT 8-12-19: Two weeks have passed since I wrote this and I have a couple updates. One, you actually can quickly change the noise cancelling level by setting one of the touch controls to "ambient sound control" in the app. This lets you toggle between a couple different noise cancelling modes with a tap. I've also started to use the adaptive sound control option, which I've found to be pretty accurate and useful. I have mine set up so it's in full noise cancelling when I'm sitting still, wind noise reduction when walking, ambient sound level 10 when running and full noise cancelling when on transportation. I've only really tested the first two options since I don't run nor commute by public transit, but the app switches modes pretty quickly and it's convenient when I decide to go for a quick walk while working.
I've also noticed that every so often I do lose sync between sounds/video when connected to my tv, but it often fixes itself pretty quickly, or a pause-play will fix it as well. I haven't noticed it on my phone, so it's likely a mix of distance and the Bluetooth chipset on the TV.
Top international reviews
De lo que revise, en teoria estos estaban en primer lugar para audio, sin embargo no los sentí superiores
Comodidad (3 Estrellas).- Probe diferentes gomas, pero siempre quedaba con la sensación de que se podían caer, nunca logre sentir que tapara de manera correcta el oido para aislar el sonido, y creo que eso tuvo un efecto en la comodidad del mismo.
Seguridad (2 Estrellas).- Nunca logre sentirme seguro con ellos, haciendo diferentes pruebas de mover la cabeza se me aflojaron un par de ocasiones sin caer. Estos no están echos para ejercicio, intente salir a correr con ellos y los tuve que ajustar un par de ocasiones, definitivamente no los recomendaría para ejercicio.
Sonido(3.5 Estrellas).- El sonido, esperaba que fuera superior a los Bose por mucho, sin embargo fue similar. Al no lograr cubrir de manera correcta el oido creo que afecto un poco la calidad, esto es en mi caso y con las gomas incluidas en el paquete.
Batería (5 Estrellas).- No tuve problemas con la bateria durante las pruebas, y esto considerando que se utiliza el Noise Cancelling.
Llamadas (1 Estrellas).- Para llamadas definitivamente no fue lo mejor, para escuchar el sonido es cómo básico (como el que esperas de cualquier manos libres de 500 pesos) y la voz en las pruebas que hice, se nota inmediatamente que estas hablando con manos libres, lo cual no esta mal, pero para la calidad de sony y el precio, esperaria algo mejor.
Tiene una opción adicional para tocar el audífono y que deje pasar el ruido de afuera, es como si tuviera un pequeño microfono y te deja escuchar bien, sin pausar la música, ese feature me encanto la verdad, sin embargo al no sentirlos muy seguros y la mala calidad de la llamada fueron decisivos para dejarlos en ultimo lugar.
La calidad de audio es importante para mi, considerando que es wireless no soy tan estricto y el sonido es bueno pero el simple hecho de tener que comprar si Bose o Sony se escuchaban mejor (el sonido es bastante similar) fue una decepción ya que es el punto de venta de estos y debería ser claramente superior
Now for the overall fit within the ear it's imperfect it's not for everyone since each person is different. And as other reviewers pointed out the earbuds are designed to go deeper in the ear canal. For a sound tight seal to get a better sound signature along with noise isolation. You best options would be to try it for yourself, so far the seal and fit in my ears are alright I haven't tried the other options in ear tips provided. So far they haven't fallen out easily but I were to shake my head like a madman I could see them falling out of my ears. As for the IR sensor build in the earbuds it's useful between removing them in or out of your ears, only seems to pair to my Android device only after I placed them my ears. As for in ear fatigue from listening or watching hours worth of content only a slight hint of fatigue for myself.
Sound quality is impressive for these earbuds very similar sound signature to the Sony WH-1000XM3 over ear headphones. I will note there is a slight more bass response not overwhelming, Treble is detailed both singers/ instruments are clear naturally sounding. Mid range sounds are present and balanced and no conflict problems, bass is well done. Not that annoying unnatural buss from beats products uck. I haven't noticed the bass being muddy on either slow or fast paced music. Sony built in chip to improve sound quality on older audio files does help but if you use a music app player you'll have to disable the EQ. Bear in mind the noise cancelling on these earbuds are decent but not as good as the over-ear headset available from Sony. You can still hear your own voice when talking but as first subtle sounds and noises it does a good job. The over-ear headphones from Sony are more aggressive and with cancelling.
Bluetooth 5.0 connection's/calling quality.
Connection wise I haven't encountered any difficulties yet but I know it could possibly happen if I were to leave my smartphone in a different room. As for call Quality the comments I got from my friends is it's clear when it's in an quiet area but I haven't tried it out in a public space yet say as in traffic as an example. The only complaint I received what's an annoying Buzz Echo but then disappeared after I reset and reconnected the Bluetooth earbuds. Hasn't happened since to date, at this time battery life is fair roughly 5 hours and 26 minutes with N/C turned on. With N/C turned off roughly only gained roughly 18 more additional minutes.
Overall opinion give it try for yourself and decide on your own discretion and if you don't like it, return the product after all that's the benefit of Amazon's 30 day return policy unless you damaged the product.
Build in features
Portability compact case

No wireless charging
No water/sweat resistant not for the gym
Possible problems in cold weather TBD
Sony warranty is different to utilize
The sound is fantastic, crisp, deep, and rich . To get the most out of these make sure you choose the proper sized nibs. This makes a world of difference in the quality of the user experience.
Anyways overall buds are great, the sound quality is fire, they're very comfortable (for me, ur ears could be different, but I can wear them for the whole day with mild uncomfortabilty at the end of the day). Battery is very good. Case is nice, and slick. They look nice in ears, and equalizer settings do make difference. Just really wish sony invested it better beta testers, found all these bugs in like few hours of listening... Hopefully things I meantioned get fixed soon in the future.
Oh and final tip is that I recommend using mesh plugs as they help your ears breath more preventing them to be sweaty. 👍
The Sony earpods are available in two colours that I am aware of; I bought the silver because it didn't look as obvious as the black (your mileage may vary). They come with a charging carry packet that charges with the supplied USB-C cable, a set of six ear pads (plus the two already on the earbuds), and some documentation. It's a nicely packaged product, and after downloading the free app from the Apple Store, I started in listening. The earbuds twist in for a tighter fit, and I had to downsize them after a week's first listening to get a better seal, but the supplied ear tips are soft and easy to swap. Gestures on the earbuds control functions, which take all of about five minutes to get comfortable with.
There's two aspects to these Sony earbuds that stand out for me: audio quality and noise reduction. The noise reduction is controllable and quite effective, as long as the seal on the ear pads is tight (otherwise noise leaks in, obviously). As to the audio quality, when commuting or at the office I do most of my listening from satellite radio, or from lossless FLAC files on my iPhone. Of course, the lossy streaming of satellite radio is not where near the quality of the FLAC files, but both sound really good on the Sony earbuds. I compared the Sonys to some of my expensive IEMs in my living room, and there, critically listening, the Sony is simply not as good as the IEMs I tried, but keeping in mind the IEMs cost ten times the price of the Sony earbuds, there's nothing embarrassing about that. I also compared these Sonys to my older Apple Air Pod, and like the Sony audio quality much, much more. I have yet to try the latest generation of Air Pods, so can't speak about them in comparison, but now I won't be buying the Air Pods at all!
I am really happy and pleased with these Sony earbuds. They are not cheap, bvut they are not expensive either (compared to some IEMs on the market). I use these Sonys almost every day and am delighted with the sound and the battery life. Definately recommended.
They fit comfortably. They don't have the same memory foam as the Sure's have, but they are very comfortable and they stay in place well. The noice cancelation is scary good. Like I mean it works SO well. The sound and bass is surprisingly good, but the highs get a little distorted by the Noise Cancelation. Also they don't go nearly as loud as the SE215's but with noise cancelation on, you don't need it so loud. The app is amazing and has WAAAAY more customization options that the AirPods. The app is just ....sexy. lol
A definite recommendation if you are an audiophile. I didn't even consider the AirPods Pro. It looses a star because of the volume issue.
- The sound is fantastic, seriously awesome. For tiny, in-ear headphones the base is great.
- They feel secure and comfortable in the ear when fitted properly
- The connection to my phone and between each ear pieces has been strong no matter the environment. My other bluetooth headsets struggled to find my phone in my back pocket...not these.
- The app works well and is intuitive
- Battery life is good
- Set-up and use is easy
- I don't love the foam or rubber sleeves that come with these. I couldn't manage to find a fit for one of my ears. Luckily I have extra Shure foam sleeves , which are compression based, and once I replaced the sony ones I was good to go.
- Getting them to stay powered down in a pocket while outside of their case, is a bit of a pain. They automatically turn off after 5 minutes, except when they don't. If they are in a pocket and you are moving they will stay alive and drain the battery. You can force power them down in the app, yet motion wakes them back up so same issue. It's a minor gripe, yet I don't want to always carry the case so it's an issue for me.
- The touch controls are a bit overly sensitive and non-intuitive. It takes some practice to hit them just right.
Overall these are hands down the best truly wireless bluetooth headphones I have tried. I am happy with the purchase and have retired my wired bluetooth headphones for these.
1.- Hay que escoger los cojinetes a utilizar, de lo contrario, no se tendrá un desempeño satisfactorio, y es el paso mas importante.
2.- Cuando los usé por primera vez, la calidad del audio era peor que mis audífonos bluetooth que solo me costaron ¡$170.00 pesos!. El día siguiente que los recibí pensé en devolverlos, pero decidí darles otra oportunidad y funcionaron satisfactoriamente.
3.- Por varios años he usado audifonos bluetooth con cancelación de ruido, para llamadas, siendo la mejor tecnología la de Jawbone (QEPD) y la de Sony está en segundo lugar. No me convence, pero es aceptable.
4.- batería del estuche es muy buena idea. Puede cargar de 0 a 100% dos veces, quizas tres veces. La falla de Sony, es que no se cargue esa batería de forma inalámbrica ¿Será por el estuche con aluminio?
5.- No sé si es por la anatomía de mi mandíbula, pero al moverla se pierde la calidad del sonido, ya que los cojinetes se mueven. Sería buena idea que agregaran cancelación de ruidos anatómicos. Cuando no escucho música, puedo escuchar la circulación en las orejas y mi respiración :).
6.- Sin razón aparente, a veces se desconecta del dispositivo al cual está conectado, uno de los audífonos pero rara vez los dos al mismo tiempo, por 2 o 3 segundos.
Después de escoger los cojinetes, realmente su desmpeño al escuchar música es excelente. Recomiendo desactivar las notificaciones, ya que interfieren con escuchar música con sonido, y curiosamente reduce el nivel de volumen de la música y luego se recupera.
A pesar de lo anterior, la calidad de oir música es muy buena, sin importar el género de la música. Me gusta el preajuste de "incremento de bajos". 27/Dic/19.. Tengo que pedirle disculpas a Amazon, ya que devolví unos audífonos que consideré defectuosos, pero la realidad es mal diseño. El segundo par que compré si se comporta diferente, pero adolece de algunos de los problemas anteriores. El mas molesto es cuando uno de los audífonos deja de funcionar y es difícil volverlo a activar. Usualmente, el que mas se desconecta es el derecho. Varia mucho la calidad del audio, sin razon aparente. Hay que insertarlos con mucha incomodidad, de lo contrario la calidad de sonido y la efectividad de la cancelación de ruido se pierden. Como con los WH-1000XM3, Sony no quiere a Samsung, por que no funcionan al 100%. Un ejemplo, aunque la configuración la cambies, la devuelve al valor mínimo 44KHz, 16 bits, etc .etc.
