Sony WF-C700N Leaked: Budget Earbuds with Active Noise Cancellation
The Sony WF-C700N, the successor to the WF-C500, has been leaked and is set to support active noise cancellation (ANC). The WF-C700N will be a cheaper alternative to the Sony WF-1000XM4, and the leaked details were contained in a report by the Walkman Blog.
The WF-C500 was launched in 2021 with an affordable price tag, but it lacked ANC functionality, which was a major drawback. The WF-C700N, however, remedies that shortcoming. There has been a previous leak of the WF-C700N with model number YY2968, and the new leaked details point to the imminent release of the product.
The Bluetooth SIG certification of the WF-C700N indicates that the earbuds will support Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, an improvement over its predecessor, which had Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. It is expected that the new pair of earbuds will support the LDAC codecs, which were omitted from the WF-C500.
Similarities with the WF-C500
There are a few similarities between the new WF-C700N and its predecessor. For one, the new earbuds closely resemble its predecessor. It will be available in the same black, green, white, and violet colors as the WF-C500. There are also no indications that the battery life of the new model will surpass that of its predecessor (10 hours).
Availability and Pricing
Sony has not provided full availability and pricing details yet for the WF-C700N earbuds. However, there are speculations that it could be released anytime soon, possibly by spring this year. It is expected that the WF-C700N will be more affordable than the higher WF-1000XM4 premium earbuds.
The Sony WF-C700N is set to be a game-changer in the budget earbuds market with its active noise cancellation feature. With improved connectivity and similarities with its predecessor, the WF-C700N is expected to be a popular choice for those looking for affordable earbuds with great features.
