Sony has announced two new headphones - one is a pair of truly wireless earbuds and the other, a pair of noise-cancelling headphones. Kicking things off with the truly wireless earbuds - the Sony WF-XB700 have an in-ear design and are a part of Sony’s Extra Bass series of audio products. They are sweat-resistant designs with an IPX4 rating. They, however, do not have a fin to help hold them securely in one's ears. How well they fit is something we will know when we get our hands on it. 

The Sony WF-XB700 does not support noise cancellation. They also do not have gesture support. Instead, they come with physical controls. They also have voice assistant support. Speaking of the battery life, the earbuds come with 9 hours of battery life and can be charged for another 9 hours via the charging case, bringing the total battery life up to 18 hours. Sony claims that charging the earbuds for 10 minutes can give up to 60 min of playback. 

The Sony WF-XB700 has a price tag of $130 (Rs 10,000 approx directly converted) and will be available in black or blue colour options. There is no information on when the headset will come to India.

Moving over to the headphones, the Sony WH-CH710N claims to feature improved noise cancellation when compared to its predecessor, the WH-CH700N. The improved noise cancellation comes with the help of dual microphones. The headset claims to have a battery life of 35 hours. The Sony WH-CH710N has a price tag of $200 (Rs 15,300 approx directly converted) and comes in black, white or blue colour options. The headset features 30mm drivers and also supports voice assistants. There is no information on when the two headsets will come to India.
