4. Sony WF-SP700N

Best Bass Pick
  • Best for outdoor use
  • Suited for bass fanatics
  • Unique design

Sony and audio technology are like a match made in heaven – many would say.

We think we should agree with that because the earphones, Bluetooth speakers and headphones from Sony we’ve tested and reviewed, this notion seems to be true.

The WF-SP700N is a truly wireless Bluetooth earphone from Sony that aims to cement this fact further.

Cute little seed

The design of the WF-SP700N reminded us of a seedling – Yes the one with sprouting. The difference here is that the sprouting is of the ear support and has no leaves.

Jokes aside, we really liked the aesthetics of this product. It’s well-built and feels outright premium when held in hand.

With IPX4 certification. You can take these cute wireless earphones outside in light rains and continue enjoying the music you like.

Extra Bass? Present Sir

Sony and Bass are almost synonymous now. With this WF-S700N, the sound output does have that punchy bass you’re familiar in Sony’s audio related equipments.

The loudness levels are on par with the competitors. Having an adequately powered dome type speaker drivers helps these earphones to cover a wider spectrum of the frequency range.

What this means for you is that you’ll be able to listen to instruments that didn’t sound pronounced while listening on normal earphones.

Noise cancellation at its best…

The Noise cancellation on this earphone is the absolute best we’ve tested till now.

With the Active noise cancellation feature inside, this earphone cancels out the background noise and lets you listen to the music without any distractions.

This won’t be much important to those who use this product inside their house or office building. But for those who love to listen to music while travelling outside, you’re sure to notice the day and night difference in the immersiveness.


Noise cancellation works well but remembers that when you have that feature enabled, you won’t be able to listen to the background sound.

If you’re a rider and if you aren’t aware of the surroundings, the results could be fatal.

However, there’s an option to let ambients sounds to be filtered and let inside your ear. This is very much helpful in such situations.

Battery life – Average or not?

Unlike passive noise cancellation, Active noise cancellation does draw some power. Maybe because of this, we got this wireless Bluetooth earphone to last up to 3 hours on a single charge.

With the supplied charging case, the battery life was satisfactory at about 9 hours.

Should you buy it??

Yes – If you are a bass fanatic and would love to listen to the music in its full glory even when you’re in the middle of a chaotic environment.

With the brand reliability and the audio quality it delivers, we think the Sony WF-S700N is a product worth checking out.
