”The Sony WF-XB700 have a lot to offer.” ’TechRadar'

Powerful sound, featuring Extra Bass

For optimised bass performance, the WF-XB700 headphones use powerful 12mm neodymium drivers. Rich, powerful and punchy, the sound suits all styles of music, letting you feel the music’s beat and rhythm.

Designed for life – water resistant
Durable design makes the WF-XB700 earphones resistant to water and sweat (IPX4-rated) - making them the perfect partner whether they're used in the gym or out and about.

Stable, Bluetooth connection
The latest Bluetooth chip delivers sound to both earbuds simultaneously, rather than from one to the other. This improves the music’s timing and keeps the earphones precisely in sync with the music or dialogue – especially handy when you’re watching videos.

Extended battery time with the charge case
Charged up, these tiny earphones give you up to nine hours music playback. Supplied with a charging case, once your headphones have run out of power, pop them in the case and within around 2.5 hours you’re all charged and ready to go for a further nine hours. If you’re in a hurry, a quick 10-minute charge is all that’s needed for 60 minutes of playback.

Access your phone’s voice assistant
Using the built-in microphone, these Sony earphones are compatible with Google and Siri voice Assistant. Simply press and hold the noise-cancelling button and ask your PA to play music, call a contact or offer directions.

Secure and comfortable
Featuring ergonomic tri-hold structures, these earphones make three points of contact with your ear for a comfortable and secure fit. The high friction rubber surface also help in keeping the earbuds snug and the outside noise out.

Get a deeper, richer sound on the move, with the Sony WF-XB700 earphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Wireless Headphones I love these, they're absolutely brilliant imho. I wondered if they'd be heavy or uncomfortable (they looked a lot bigger than other models), but I found them balanced and extremely comfy, enough for a full days wear. I don't go running etc so can't comment as to how they'd stay in. The sound is fabulous, way better than I'd hoped for, so given their price point, they're an absolute steal. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clear sound, significant bass The sound is Sony - clear and dynamic with bass power that defies in-ear previous capabilities! They are large and frankly look ungainly in a way, but you cannot have looks and powerful performance maybe... they are pretty secure and have not fallen out despite feeling as if they might. Pretty comfortable and isolate external sounds well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound These ear buds are excellent. Very comfortable to wear. The sound is excellent and with the extra bass it gives a new definition of your music. Very smooth, long battery life. Easy to pair with other Blue Tooth devices. I would recommend these to anyone thinking of purchasing a wireless in ear headphone set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic all round experience! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This new Sony wireless stereo in ear headset is exceptional and the best I’ve ever owned. I absolutely love the fantastic tonal quality and extra bass whether for classical, pop or rock. It’s a pleasure to wear and it’s so comfortable. It cuts out all the ambient noise too. It was very easy to link up with my iPhone. The ability to recharge on the go from an attractive pocket size case is great. It has immensely enhanced my musical experience in all environments and I highly recommend it. For me it’s another star product from Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I have been waiting for for a long time [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had the headphones for a couple of weeks now and without exaggeration they have improved the quality of my life in that I can now listen to music and podcasts comfortably for long periods whilst doing jobs around the house at the same time. The headphone are so neat and convenient so that I now listen to much more content than previously. For more than 20 years and for a variety of reasons I have used headphones to listen to both music and speech, initially over-ear and wired, then wired buds and finally a Sony Wireless over-ear set three years ago. The latter was a major step forward but naturally over-ear headphones tend to make the ears uncomfortably warm after a long period and slip forward when one bends down whilst working. The first thing that impressed me when the WF-XB700's arrived was the quality and design of the packaging which indicated to me the usual Sony quality of the enclosed product (over many years I have owned and enjoyed many Sony products.) This took the form of translucent very tactile pod c. 8x4.5 cm. with a flat base that fitted neatly into the palm of the hand with a reassuring weight, and which opened and closed easily with a firm positive action. Inside were two neat headphones clearly marked with colour coded L and R. To remove them one inserts a finger in a notch at the side and lifts them against the pull of a magnet twisting the left one anti-clockwise and the right one clockwise. Whilst in the pod they have a small rectangular red light which turns to flashing blue once they are removed as they seek a bluetooth connection. Returning them is simple as, once located above their slots, they snap firmly into place. Making a bluetooth pairing to my phone was effected effortlessly and subsequent connections were immediate when the headphones were placed near to the phone. They felt really comfortable when first placed in the ear without need to change the "buds" (there were 3 more of varying sizes provided in the pack.) Within minutes I was forgetting that I was wearing them. They stay firmly in place no matter how one moves around without any discomfort allowing one to work and enjoy music etc. So far I have listened to podcast episodes for more than two hours at a stretch without fatigue or discomfort. Listening to music was a revelation and the performance of the headphones was truly astonishing and far exceeded my exceptions. I have wide tastes in music from Electronic (Tangerine Dream etc whom I have listened to from the 70's, initially on vinyl ) to Classic and Opera and most things in-between. The high notes are crisp, clear and well defined - piano music a delight - the bass notes astounding with their resonance and depth but still clearly defined and not in the least muddy. The real revelation for me was listening to a series of podcasts where the speech was accompanied by background music. I have reached the point in life where I have some hearing loss; the headphones have helped in the past but anyone who has got some hearing loss will know the frustration of watching a film only to lose some of the dialogue when the backing music strikes up. With the WF-XB700's it was like a return to old days where it was perfectly possible to hear all the dialogue and the background music at the same time. Magic and totally unexpected. Accordingly, whilst I would recommend these headphones to anyone I would particularly recommend them to anyone like myself who has hearing loss. So far I have only managed to pair them to my phone but as the modern "Smart Phones" allow access to most media this is not a problem for me. However, when I have had them for a little longer I will look into pairing them with something else. I have read criticism that they don't have noise cancelling. This is not something that I would require (I have it on my Sony over-ear headphones but only use it rarely) as I don't want or feel the need to be totally detached from - necessary - external stimuli. That said, normal domestic sounds to not in anyway intrude, in fact, if my wife wishes to speak to me from another room she rings me. Accepting phone calls is achieved by pressing a small button on the headphone and this works well, making a clear connection immediately. I can confirm Sony's claim to their moisture resistance as I dropped one in the dog's water bowl. Once removed and wiped over it performed as before. The main battery in the "pod" is charged by a (supplied) short USB cable connected to a computer or USB socket and the headphones take charge from the main battery once seated in the "pod", charging indicated by a red light on each one. Charging time is swift and listening time, for me, exceeds the nine hours claimed by Sony. In summation these are a truly remarkable product providing outstanding music and speech reproduction with the true portability, comfort and safety required to allow one to listen for long periods and carry on with almost any task at the same time, all for a most modest price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding sound quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got these Sony ear buds WF-XB700 a few weeks ago they are great quality wireless ear buds with incredible bass sound they are not what I am used to as they are slightly larger than other models I own they took a few days to get used to and fell out a couple of times but they come with interchangeable different size buds and once I got the right fit they have been extremely comfortable -The first time I used them l only got 5 hours playing time but since then 9 hours is normal and the case gives the same before you have to recharge them. I do lots of walking and use them often with them staying in place no problem at all overall for the price I think they are excellent value for money and would not hesitate to recommend then to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek design and easy to use [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had these for a month, they were beautifully packed and user instructions were easy to follow. The case is pocket sized and easy to charge although the USB cable could be longer. The magnetic holder for the earpieces is a reassuring feature. Connecting to Bluetooth is simple. The shape of the earpiece is very comfortable with an easy access side button for taking calls. Sound quality is very clear with no interference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great natural, detailed sound [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sony kindly asked me to test these, I am pleased they did - they are great! Music is important to me. I tend to listen to CDs or Hi Fi or Master Quality streaming and worry about getting good sound quality in the mid-range of earphones. Compared to my regular bluetooth ones which are a 'sports version' the sound is more detailed, more natural and fuller overall. I tried Vaughan Williams, New Order, Voces8, Daft Punk and John Rutter - Sony got more detail and more naturalism every time. The bass they promote builds as the volume goes up. These earphones are not too quiet, not quieter than any others I have. Top tip - if the sound is good but not everything you hoped for out-of-the-box, go up a size in the range of in-ear gummies Sony provide. The carry case is good, in a textured hard plastic and smaller than pocket-sized. I love the fact tat the cover is translucent so you can see that the earbuds are charging or fully charged. The cable is a speed charger - interoperable with my android, so only one cable needed for both. The earbuds themselves appear very durable, with controls for volume and stop,skip,play on either earpiece - naturally these are rather fiddly as everything is quite small. I think most likely you will have your phone with you when using these, so use the phone to control the music. I wouldn't recommend these for kinetic activities such as running or cycling - it is not so much that they will fall out (they won't any more than any other grippy earphone in my view) but the controls are too fiddly to be used during a sporting activity. I love the way the earbuds snap into their box with a magnetic lock - and that they connect to my android right away without having to do anything with them or the phone. These earphones I think must be right up there with the best you can buy at their price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bass! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Sony WF-XB 700 These bluetooth ear buds are a new breed of equipment for an ageing audiophile like me. I’m used to the ordinary run of the mill wired and bluetooth headphones for listening to my music when I retire to bed at the end of a tiring day. If you are like me, I like bass, and a lot off it and believe you me these Sony earbuds really deliver it too. Bass or kick drum has the effect of being there live in front of it giving you the impression of your chest thumping with the air pressure from being there in person. The same goes with bass guitar or simply anything that has a whoomph to it. Mid range is situated exactly where it should be, not too forward and not too far in the rear and voice, guitar, especially piano/keyboard have an outstanding sound reproduction. Getting onto the high’s or to the old timers, the treble, I found them to be quite crisp albeit a little grainy on sounds like hi-hat cymbals but I’m being really critical here and unless you really are a perfectionist, I don’t think you would notice. Charging and operating these buds are so simple especially for me. Charge the carry case up via the usb cable supplied, open the lid, and pop them in their respective recesses and simply wait for the red light on both buds to go out and they are charged! Linking them to you device (phone/ tablet etc) is simple. Search for the buds on you devices Bluetooth option and click to connect. Done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Things Do Come in Small Packages! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Its true, the best things really do come in small packages after all. I love to pop these headphones on after a stressful day and chill out to my favourite music. Sony really have got everything right with these wireless headphones. Even the packaging looks and feels right. The headphones charge quickly, last up to 9 hours between charges and the charger doubles as a neat little travel case which can be unobtrusively slipped into your pocket or handbag. I love these headphones and take them everywhere with me now. The sound quality is excellent, they are very easy to set up and use, comfortable to wear and if you take the time to choose the right sized tips (various sizes supplied) are a very snug and secure fit indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional sound quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I won't mention the competitor its beats but I have some, and these headphones are far superior in sound quality. Nicely boxed but a bit over the top with all the manuals! Most people have internet access so making them available online would save a few trees! As you can see from the pictures there is a charging/carry case, which does exactly that. When the earpieces are in the case it charges them up. The case can be charged using the included usb cable. It took about 3 hours to charge initially (red light went out when charged). Also included are a number of different-sized ear buds which is a good idea. Connecting to bluetooth was easy and just required pressing the tiny button on each earpiece then discovering them on my iPhone. Putting them in my ears for the first time took a little time as I had to position the ear pieces to make them comfortable. Once done they were very comfortable and did not fall out when moving. Sound quality is exceptional: I tried lots of different kinds of music and was able to pick out individual instruments easily across each type. However, podcasts have a little too much bass for my liking so I downloaded the Sony Music Player app which allowed me to control the bass, mid, and treble levels. Problem solved! I would definitely recommend these wireless headphones for anyone who loves to hear the different instruments clearly. A great experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality and comfortable to wear. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very pleased with these ear buds and a little surprised. I have always been a Headphone believer and sceptical of what sound quality ear buds can deliver and, in the past, had problems with them staying in place. Well, now I think I’m converted. These buds are comfortable to wear, stay in place and deliver amazing sound, what more can you ask?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome headphones [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Overall the sound quality of the music is excellent, the base is awesome, for talking on a phone call the sound quality is very excellent and clear, they were very easy to connect to my phone via Bluetooth and love how they automatically connect my phone when I remove them from the charge case, The only downside to the Sony WF-XB700 is the charging cable is way too small and has to hang from my wall socket while on charge

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, really comfortable – I’m converted! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I WAS very cynical about the whole concept of wireless earphones. I am the guy who always wears large over-the-ear wired headphones on long haul flights! BUT my concerns - such as how comfortable these would be, would they be fiddly to use, likely to fall out and get lost etc – all disappeared after using these for the first few days! I am delighted with my experience with them and would definitely recommend them to others. Comfort – remarkably comfortable, and equally important, though very light, felt really secure. Never any issues of coming out unexpectedly. The earbuds as supplied fitted me perfectly but 3 other sets of different sizes are included which ensures all size ears are catered for. Design – the carrying/charging case is brilliant. Small enough to fit comfortably in a pocket or purse. Very clever magnetic self-parking arrangement means the earphones dock very easily and perfectly for charging after every use. This is via the supplied USB cable but additionally the case itself holds a charge and can recharge the earphones while away from a USB supply. Very useful! Appearance – They are different to others on the market, so you’ll either like or dislike the look. But the design means they fit securely and comfortably and contributes to the great sound. I like the appearance! Ease of operation – Took me a couple of days to get fully up to speed on all controls (eg for phone calls etc) and I would recommend the excellent comprehensive on-line help guide as opposed to the supplied documentation. All in all – excellent. I have gone form cynic to advocate in less than two weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I was brought these as a birthday present and to say I'm happy with them is an understatement. Fantastic battery life, good sound, very comfortable well worth the money.
