Sony launched its new entry-level CH-720N noise-canceling headphones in 2023. They’re fairly good, however if you cannot afford them (they listing for $150), the corporate’s new finances on-ear CH-520 headphones are an intriguing choice for less than round $50.
They lack noise canceling and are fairly no-frills, however they characteristic good sound for his or her worth, are light-weight and fairly snug for on-ear headphones, and still have wonderful battery life (they’re rated for as much as 50 hours at average quantity ranges). Moreover, they’ve multipoint Bluetooth pairing, so you possibly can pair them with two units concurrently, reminiscent of a smartphone and pc, and change audio. Voice-calling efficiency is first rate, although less than the extent of what you get with the CH-720N.
Notice that there is no wired choice — it is a wi-fi Bluetooth-only headphone. The CH-520 affords total balanced sound with first rate readability. The bass has some punch to it however would not pack a wallop, and you are not going to get fairly as extensive a soundstage as you get from Sony’s dearer over-ear headphones. However these undoubtedly sound higher than Sony’s earlier entry-level on-ear headphones and sound higher than I believed they’d. I attempted the white coloration however in addition they are available in blue and black.
