A few months ago, I decided to stop reviewing wireless headphones, with a few exceptions. One such exception is that Sony decides to offer a truly wireless experience at an affordable price. Priced at Rs 9,990, the Sony WF-XB700 is exactly that.
But how good is it?
The Sony WF-XB700 comes in a compact charging case, different because an LED light inside illuminates the semi-transparent case when USB charging is activated. I have never seen this before.
But the ear pads themselves are bigger than what we’ve seen recently. Not always a bad sign as it also indicates a bigger driver inside.
Despite the side, there was no problem using the headsets that stayed outside even when I was taking quick walks on the terrace to desperately reach my 10,000 daily steps without compromising the standards of social distancing. Remember to give them a touch once you’ve put them in your ears to make sure they’re in place.

The Sony WF-XB700 is not at all complicated. The two sides can be easily combined with any device. You can control the volume and navigate using the two small buttons on both sides. The volume controls are on the left and skip and pause on the right. The right button also helps you take a call and also launches the voice assistant.
One of the best features is that it is splash resistant, which means you can take it to the gym or wear it while the monsoon rains are whipping your city.

I’ve never been a fan of Extra Bass, something the Sony WF-XB700 boasts on its box itself. But the audio profile of this earphone is not controlled by the bass. So when you listen to softer songs like jazz and vocals, the bass is softer and improves the overall experience.
But when you listen to something like Malang, where the song itself is partial to the bass, the extra bass makes sense. If this is your poison, you will appreciate it every moment. But the versatility of the Sony WF-XB700 appears when the playlist changes to Atif Aslams Kinna Sona and the experience reminds you of the movie theater with the right fit of space and space. But there are songs where I could have lived with a little more space for the different frequencies in play.

The audio profile is different when you take phone calls or zoom. It is crisp, almost tiny. During calls, you also hear a hollow-barrel drone when there is no audio to hear, which I have also noticed in some Sennheiser models. However, the audio quality is good enough that you can hear a Koel singing in one place during a zoom call.

The battery lasts about 18 hours with the headphones and the charging case. The case takes a full charge in about two and a half hours. Remember that there is no noise cancellation on this model.
Given the price, the Sony WF-XB700 is a good option for those who need a real wireless headset for work and pleasure. It is clearly not a high-end option and therefore not the best option for audiophiles. For everyone below this demanding breed, the Sony WF-XB700 is a great value option that comes with the peace of mind that Sony can offer.
