WF-C500 truly wireless earbuds and charging case in black on a light grey background

Small size, uncompromising sound

Our WF-C500 truly wireless earbuds are designed compact to fit snugly in your ear. But don’t let their size fool you. They deliver high quality sound that's rich in detail, thanks to DSEE technology, which restores fine fade-out sound and high frequency sound. These Bluetooth® headphones are smartphone-friendly too, very easy to use and come in a choice of four colours.

More delightful listening experience

With our Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE), high frequency sound and fine fade-out sound are restored to the track for a more authentic listening experience. You can also tailor music to your own taste using the EQ setting on the Sony | Headphones Connect app.

Make your music more natural

When an original music source is compressed, it loses the high-frequency elements that add detail and richness to a track. Our Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) faithfully restores these to produce high-quality sound that’s closer to the original recording. [A] Restoration  [B] Fine sound restoration

Ergonomic Surface Design

Since introducing the world’s first in-ear headphones in 1982 (MDR-E252), we’ve surveyed huge amounts of data relating to ear shapes from around the world. The WF-C500 headphones are the product of that research, combining a shape that matches the ear cavity with a new ergonomic surface design for a more stable fit.

Go anywhere, pocket-sized case

The cylindrical charging case is extremely small and easy to carry around in a pocket or bag so you can take your earbuds everywhere you go. Its translucent lid with a texture like frosted glass gives the case a stylish, luxurious look and feel.
