Sony WF-SP800N Earbuds Review - A Great Pick For Those Having An Active Lifestyle

At around Rs. 20,000, Sony WF-SP800N earbuds are high-quality with tap gesture controls, light notifications, ANC technology and water-proof support.

If you are a loyal fan of Sony audio products, their flagship 1000XM3 headphones and earphones should be quite familiar and well-known. They are both famous for being the bestseller products right from the moment when they started to reach the shelves. However, the notable success gained does not encourage Sony to introduce the wireless earbuds of this version - the Japanese manufacturer instead launched a brand new product named Sony WF-SP800N with a wide range of promising convenient features that might even overwhelm its predecessor.

Sony WF-SP800N - Design

As a matter of fact, Sony earbuds or charging cases’ designs are not usually appreciated. Resulted from the oversized earbuds, the new SP800N’s case is literally much bigger than the 1000XM3. It is even broader thanks to the massive battery backup. However, it is totally not as heavy as it appears.

Color availability may vary by region, but Black and White will never go wrong.

To be honest, the earbuds are high-quality with tap gesture controls and light notifications; however, they follow a kind of design that has been a little bit old. especially for a futuristic and future strategists like Sony, who is trying to modernize its soundbars, TVs, and even the PlayStation 5. 

One more disappointing feature of these buds is they are neither small nor compact. They are made to fit your ears well but not for a long time. Therefore, another question is asked here: “How can they compete with other earbuds that have the same quality but smaller size and more convenience?”

The earbuds are high-quality with tap gesture controls and light notifications.

The answer is, might be, the two come-along sets of arches and extra ear tips in different sizes included in each product. If you notice a bud is about to fall from your ear, you can use its attached arch to find the right position for it. However, all of that convenience does not mean the disadvantages that SP800N brings about are ignored. Many users admit that they can not wear their earbuds for more than one or two hours owing to fatigue and pain. 

So the extra accessories should be the factor that can attract customers. Compared to other recently launched earbuds like Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2, SP800N still provides users with more ear tips and arcs. Therefore, users will have more chances to choose their correct size of ear tips, which then help them keep the earbuds staying safe on their ears.

Sony WF-SP800N is also installed with water-proof technology and ANC technology.

Essentially, these bud giants can prevent a lot of annoying sounds with the help of Sony’s qualified Active Noise Cancellation technology. Sony WF-SP800N is absolutely the most affordable Sony product with ANC tech with the cost below Rs. 20,000. Moreover, the WF-SP800N is also installed with water-proof technology, which can help you chill with your favorite soundtracks while playing with water. 

Sony WF-SP800N - Sound quality 

As expected, SP800N provides its user with several handful features like single tap, double-tap, and long hold to control and remote control via the Sony Headphones app. Although latency sometimes occurs, all the built-in functions like controlling music playback, skipping tracks, calling voice assistants (Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant), and volume control will surely make your experience with these earbuds treasurable.

Whenever you unintentionally tap the earbuds, some small audio alerts will notify you.

In addition, whenever you unintentionally tap the earbuds, some small audio alerts will notify you. Although this feature is not wholly new, it should be adapted for many other products for the safety of users. One more excellent point of SP800N is its stable and strong connection when pairing up with other devices. Even when pairing with an iPhone or Apple Watch, the process is still very smooth as well as flawlessly.

In particular, you can pair your Sony WF-SP800N with other devices within 7 meters with obstacles. But if you want to switch from one device to another, the process will not be easy as you expect. In order to change the source device, you will have to manipulate manually, meaning that you have to disconnect the earbuds from the first device, then reconnect them with the second one. Sometimes, this will not make your day lighten up at all.

Sony WF-SP800N - Battery 

With the help of a heavy battery backup, Sony proudly says that its WF-SP800N earbuds will be able to run smoothly in 18 hours. In fact, these earbuds can just work continuously for 13 - 15 hours with noise cancellation on and 70% volume. But you can extend the battery life for several more hours by switching off the ANC feature.

When they are fully charged, you can comfortably use them for more than 5 hours of music playback with noise cancellation. It also takes only nearly 2 hours for 100% charging, thanks to its famous Quick Charge technology. However, you still need a wire and a plug for the charging process. 

Sony WF-SP800N - Conclusion

As usual, Sony is known as a brand that only offers premium products that seem to be out of reach for many customers, especially in a price-conscious market like India. However, their products are admittedly worth what users pay, and the well-built, unique, and multi-function SP800 earbuds are among that list. You can hardly find any other brand that can provide a pair of earbuds that is not only high quality and high battery life but also stunning and commendable like this one.
