The 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 the 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 thats closer to the original recording.

Your sound, just how you like it
Tailor sound to your personal preference. Choose from a variety of presets to match sound quality with the genre of music you're listening to. Or create and save your own presets using the EQ Custom feature on the Sony?Headphones Connect app.

Small and light, a great fit
Designed small, these buds fit securely and comfortably in your ears. The rounded shape without edges makes them a pleasure to wear, leaving you free to focus on what matters your music.

Ergonomic Surface Design
Since introducing the worlds first in-ear headphones in 1982 (MDR-E252), weve 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.

Listen all day, charge in minutes
Enjoy up to 20 hours of listening thanks to the handy charging case.3 And if you need to top up in a hurry, 10-minute quick charging gives you up to an hour of extra playtime.
