The world’s first1 truly wireless Noise Cancelling headphones with splash-proof
design, letting you enjoy undisturbed sound wherever you are
Compatible with Google Assistant for hands-free convenience2
So comfortable, you can wear them for hours
Shaped for maximum in-ear stability
SYDNEY, 9 January 2018 – Sony launches three new sports wireless headphones for the active,
stylish music lover who’s always on the go. These high quality headphones are just as good when worn
in a high intensity cardio class, a yoga session or in everyday life.
A truly wireless design is important when wearing headphones on the go, as it means you are free to
do whatever sports you wish without your headphone cables getting in the way. Firstly is the truly
wireless WF-SP700N headphones which combine, for the first time, two features you need most when
working out; digital noise cancelling to block out the chaos and focus on your training, and a durable,
splash-proof design.
Sony’s Noise Cancelling headphones become smarter with the Google Assistant
Sony’s Noise Cancelling headphones3 will be optimised for Google Assistant via an update2. Ask
questions, tell it to do things, it’s your own personal Google, always ready to help. The Assistant can
help you get things done, listen to music, hear your incoming messages, make calls and more.

As of 8 January 2018, according to research by Sony Corporation, in truly wireless headphones with IPX4 rating
or higher for WF-SP700N.
WF-SP700N
Hear the sounds you want
Sony Noise Cancelling3 lets you concentrate and zone in to your training, in the noisy environment of a
gym with machines and people talking, so you can enjoy your music clearly on the treadmill. If you’re
exercising outside, just turn on the Ambient Sound mode to stay aware of the surrounding sounds.
These headphones also offer the famous Sony EXTRA BASS™ sound 2 that combined with Noise
Cancelling will give your music a deeper, punchier bass to focus on enhancing your performance. The
companion Sony | Headphones Connect app even allows you to tailor your sound settings.
WF-SP700N
Splash-proof, secure-fit design and portability
With an IPX4 rating, the WF-SP700N headphones are splash-proof meaning you can wear them in the
rain, or while sweating in the gym.
Supplied with arc supporters, they fit very securely in your ears no matter what activity you are doing.
They are available in four colours including black, white, pink and yellow.

For WF-SP700N and WI-SP600N
WF-SP700N
The WF-SP700N’s come with a compact charging case and benefit from approximately three hours of
battery life, plus two additional charges from their case, offering a total of nine hours in-between
charges.
Convenient connectivity
The WF-SP700N’s have NFC one-touch connection and are compatible with the Sony | Headphones
Connect app, which now features “Quick Sound Settings” so you can recall your favourite equaliser and
ambient sound setting with just two taps of the headphones button.
Style options to suit you
Alongside the truly wireless style, Sony brings out two standard wireless in-ear models, the WI-SP600N
and the WI-SP500, to offer a range of sports headphones you just won’t be able to live without.
WI-SP600N
The WI-SP600N model has the same Digital Noise Cancelling and sound technology as the WFSP700N, plus the same splash-proof rating. Their compact earpieces are connected by a discreet cable
that sits behind the neck and they also feature arc supporters which are designed to ensure both
flexibility and a secure fit. With this pair, you can keep listening for up to approximately 6 hours.
WI-SP500
Finally, the WI-SP500 headphones have an open-type design to recognise ambient sounds naturally,
as well as an IPX4 splash-proof rating, and easy connectivity to your smartphone thanks to NFC™. You
can also train for longer with the WI-SP500 thanks to approximately eight hours of battery life. These
headphones have specially-designed, ergonomic and grippy earbuds with rubber dimples which again
ensure they will not easily slip out whilst you are doing your favourite sporting activities.
WI-SP500 will be available in Australia from April, and WF-SP700N and WI-SP600N from May. Pricing
TBC.
The headphones that will be optimised for the Google Assistant are the WF-SP700N, WI-SP600N, as
well as 2017 Noise Cancelling models, the WH-H900N, WH-1000XM2, WI-1000X and WF-1000X.
