Sony WI-C300 Black Wireless In Ear Headphones
Sony WI-C300 Wireless In-Ear Headphones
From a glance, you can tell that Sony’s WI-C300 are a little bit different. They make use of a wireless connection, but still have a wire in their design. However, that wire is suspended behind your neck, ensuring it never has the opportunity to get in your way. On the technical side of things, the WI-C300 use some of Sony’s best 9mm drivers, a powerful battery, Bluetooth, and a built-in microphone. In short, they’re far more than a simple pair of headphones, they’re an embodiment of versatility.
A powerful Bluetooth 4.0 connection makes these headphones effortlessly double as an efficient hands free calling device. And you’ll be able to keep conversations flowing freely with the built-in noise cancelling microphone on the WI-C300, which makes smartphones look immobile and burdensome by comparison.
Bluetooth 4.0 ensures you’ll have access to a roomy 30-foot connection for a completely liberated wireless experience. And making your Bluetooth connections is as simple as one-button, so you won’t have to deal with a complicated setup procedure to get your headphones recognized as you move from device to device.
Naturally, there are some devices where Bluetooth compatibility can get sticky, but because this is Sony, you can rest assured that compatibility issues are few and far between. Another thing to note is that the WI-C300’s microphone is an electret condenser, which is what engineers use for pilots and others in extremely loud environments. That alone should speak volumes about the quality of the noise cancelling Sony brings to the table.
The WI-CS300 includes a formidable battery life of up to 8-hours continual play off one charge. But those estimates are taken in labs conditions, whether or not you’ll reach 8 hours can depend on a number of things. The actual performance of the battery you received from the manufacturer, the settings you use for playing your music, various environmental conditions, and long-term use can all contribute to battery life.
That means in practice, many users will find they end up with closer to 7 hours of power. But rapid 2-hour recharge is possible through the included micro-USB charger. And when left idle, battery life has a maximum standby time of about 200 hours.
Build & Comfort
The WI-C300 makes use of a behind-the-neck design that doesn’t cause the cord to pull downward on your head, or cause you to accidentally jerk your headphones out of your ears. The 7-inch cord connects the two sides of the headset, making it snag-proof. And even though there’s two cords, they each attach independently to one point. That’s an important design decision because there’s the commonly used pigtail cord design found on many headsets can disproportionately strain one side of the cord, eventually causing a short in the wire.
One of the most common issues people have with in-ear headphones is how they’re worn. It’s potentially invasive and awkward to have objects shoved into your ear canals. But Sony has made use of a comfortable rubberized tip design that rests comfortably yet firmly in the ear. If in-ear headphones have never been comfortable for you, then the WI-C300 probably won’t be the pair to change your mind. But if you’ve had good experiences with in-ear headphones before, then these may be your first chance to have a truly great experience with them.
Along the base on the headphone wire you’ll find a button panel with an independent volume settings and Bluetooth connectivity button. In spite of the relatively powerful battery, the total weight of these headphones is no more than 4 ounces, making them extremely lightweight by in-ear standards. And the Wi-C300 comes in four available colors, blue, red, black, and white.
