Sony WF-SP800N: up to 26 hours of battery life and noise cancellation for new wireless headphones
The true wireless hearing aid market is in its prime, and most companies are looking to have options to be present. Sony, and its well-known heritage and audio expertise, has been very active in this area.
With the Sony WF-SP800N the manufacturer now seeks to target a more sporty segment, but without neglecting important features. In fact, these WF-SP800N are the renewal of last year’s WF-SP700N, and this time they integrate the same Bluetooth chip as the WF-1000XM3
By integrating part of the specifications of the high-end headphones, Sony claims that the WF-SP800N improve autonomy and audio quality. In addition, they incorporate up to 20 different levels of noise cancellation (ANC). We will also find an Extra Bass equalizer and bass boost setting.
As for the design, they are in-ear type and include a bow to hold on the inside of the ear, which in theory would improve the fit and withstand sudden movements. At the end of everything they are designed for physical activity and sport. They are IP55 certified, which makes them waterproof and dustproof, although they are not submersible.
According to Sony, the new WF-SP800N will offer up to 9 hours of autonomy with noise cancellation activated and up to 13 hours without activating this cancellation. The case will offer us additional charge that will increase the autonomy until 26 hours. A key point is that this case is compatible with fast charging, where with only 10 minutes of charge we will have 60 minutes of autonomy.
As with the current range of Sony hearing aids, they are compatible with iOS and Android, they are controlled through the app where adaptive technology is used, which we can configure and serve to detect what we are doing to adjust the sound accordingly to the situation. In addition to that we can choose our favorite assistant: Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant.
The WF-SP800N also have a touchpad to control music, turn the volume up or down, activate the assistant, or even answer calls. When we remove the headphones, they will automatically turn off to avoid wasting energy, and will reactivate when placed in our ears.
The new Sony WF-SP800N will arrive in Mexico on a date to be announced later, as well as its price. Meanwhile, for reference, in the United States they will cost only $ 199, and will be available in the coming days in black, white, blue and orange.
