For a limited time, you can pick up Sony WF-C500 Wireless Earbuds for $68 at Amazon. Typically, they sell for $99.99 so that's $32 in savings. This is one of the lowest prices we've seen for the earbuds and one of the best headphones deals we've tracked this year. Available color options include black, and white.
Best Buy offers them in black, and mint green for the same price.
As we note in our Sony WF-C500 review, the earbuds feature dynamic, bass-forward sound and long battery life of 10 hours. We are also fond of their 360 Reality Audio and DSEE support and charging case design.
If you're looking for earbuds that won't fall out when you're on a call or chewing gum, the WF-C500s are worth considering. The buds' silicone ear tips mold to the shape of your ear canals, creating a secure fit. This tight seal helps isolate sound which makes up for the lack of active noise-cancellation.
During music playback, the WF-C500 earbuds delivered balanced sound. From hip-hop to pop to Latin jazz, there were impactful lows, detailed mids, crisp highs and punchy bass.
As with all Sony Bluetooth headphones, sound can be personalized using the equalizer in the free Sony Headphones Connect app. Tweak your sound manually or choose from nine presets: Bass Boost, Bright, Excited, Manual, Mellow, Relaxed, Speech, Treble Boost, and Vocal.
Put simply, the Sony WF-C500 earbuds are a wise choice if you're looking for a more affordable AirPods or Galaxy Buds alternative.
