The Sony WI-C100 neckband wireless Bluetooth earphones have been released in India. The new wireless earphones are among the most reasonably priced Sony wireless earbuds available right now in India. They are a part of the company's entry-level C-series of wireless headsets. The entry-level product in the line, which also includes the neckband wireless Bluetooth earbuds WI-C200, WI-C310, and WI-C400, is the neckband in-ear wireless WI-C100.
Sony WI-C100 Specifications
The frequency response range of the Sony WI-C100 wireless earphones is 20–20,000 Hz, and they include 9mm dynamic drivers. The earphones connect through Bluetooth 5 and support the SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs. The earbuds' claimed battery life is up to 25 hours on a single charge, and charging is done via USB Type-C. The headphone's water resistance rating is IPX4.
It's interesting to note that the Sony WI-C100 supports Dolby Atmos but that it only functions with a Sony WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter and a Bravia XR TV. Additionally, the earbuds are compatible with Google Fast Pair and Sony's 360 Reality Audio, and they can be customised and adjusted in some basic ways via the Sony Headphones Connect app.
You can activate the voice assistant, manage playback, and adjust the volume all from the headset, thanks to an in-line remote. Although there is no active noise cancellation, the in-canal fit of the earphones provides some passive noise isolation.
Sony WI-C100 Price and Availability
The Sony WI-C100 is one of the most cost-effective wireless headphones from the Japanese electronics company in India. Its MRP is Rs 2,790 in India; however, it is now on sale for Rs 1,699 during this period. The headphones are currently offered at major e-commerce shops in India, various multi-brand electronics stores, Sony's own ShopAtSC web portal, and Sony retail stores.
The Sony WI-C100 has stiff competition in the inexpensive market at this price from Indian manufacturers like Boat, Boult Audio, and Noise as well as from international brands with an online focus like Xiaomi, Realme, and OnePlus. Even though the WI-C100 lacks active noise cancellation, which is a feature offered by many alternatives in this price range, other characteristics will help distinguish the headset and draw customers.
