A comfortable fit for on the go
The WF-C700N have been designed with comfort and stability in mind, for an inclusive fit.

The WF-C700N earbuds combine a shape to perfectly match the human ear with an ergonomic surface design for a more stable fit, so users can wear them longer without needing a break.
The cylindrical charging case is small and easy to carry around in a pocket or bag so they can be taken anywhere consumers want to go. Additionally, the WF-C700N are available in black, white, lavender and sage green colors, with a geometrically patterned texture for a luxurious look and feel.
More music, less background noise
With the WF-C700N it's just the listener and their music. Users can diminish background noise with noise canceling or use the Ambient Sound Mode to stay connected to their natural surroundings.
Consumers can personalize their settings within the Sony | Headphones Connect app or use the Focus on Voice setting to chat without removing the earbuds1. These features make it simple to step into a coffee shop and quickly order with ease, then just as quickly sit back, and enjoy entertainment -distraction-free.
The WF-C700N also features Adaptive Sound Control which adjusts ambient sound settings depending on where the user is and what they're doing. It recognizes locations frequently visits, such as offices, the gym or coffee shops, and switches the sound modes that suit the situation. With this, consumers can seamlessly move through their surroundings all while letting them enjoy their favorite artists and entertainment.
Hear every beat in high quality
The WF-C700N deliver high quality sound thanks to DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine). With the help of Sony's original 5mm driver unit the WF-C700N packs a punch, producing powerful bass and stunningly clear vocals despite their small size, bringing out the best in whatever genre or entertainment is chosen. Users can also change their music to fit their taste with the EQ settings on the Sony | Headphones Connect app.1
