Sony WF-880N aims to make sport headphones as popular as the sub-luxury Sony WF1000XM3: Active noise cancellation is a must-have feature. Sony Wf-Sp800n Black Friday Deals 2021 These buds are stronger and lighter than the WF1000XM3, yet still provide sound-silencing capabilities at a more affordable price. The WF-SP800N has a bass-forward profile and produces energetic audio. This can be adjusted through the Sony Headphones App. It also boasts the longest battery life of any headphone in its class. These buds are not perfect, but they do hit a few key points. The WF-SP800N is simple in appearance but robust in construction. The WF-SP800N has the same long, elegant design as the WF1000XM3, but it is much more minimalist in details.
The attractive Sony branding and accents in gold have been replaced by a simple white logo. Sony also ditched the attractive circular touch panels in favor of what I would call tear-drop-shaped panels, which offer more touch coverage. These panels will not add any flair to your style, even if you choose other colors. These buds are IP55 rated by Sony, which means they are water-, sweat- and dust-resistant. These buds can withstand heavy splashes but not enough to swim laps in the swimming pool. Although it’s hard to know how the buds will resist perspiration as I haven’t had much time to exercise, I can testify to their durability by dropping and (mistakenly!) stepping on them outside.
They were not damaged or scratched. The plastic case is extremely solid and is what you want in a pair of wireless sport headphones. Let’s now move on to the charging case. It’s made of a large chunk of plastic similar to the WF-1000XM3. However, this one is a lot more comfortable for the eyes because it has a two-tone colorway and a premium cigarette holder. It’s not something you can discreetly slip into your jeans pockets.

It does come with a magnetic lid which keeps it closed and secures the buds. While I understand that Sony had to make a larger frame in order to house the WF-SP800N’s powerful circuitry, Apple and Jabra have proven that it is possible to squeeze a lot of functionality into a smaller, more sleeker design. Sony WF-SP800N Review: Comfort and Fit The WF-SP800N, despite its bulky appearance is extremely comfortable and fits well to the ears. How well does it work? These buds will stay in place while speed walking and light jogs around your neighborhood, I can assure you. They will slip if they are involved in lateral-heavy activities
It was enjoyable to wear the buds for two hours each day. The canal is easily accessed by the angled sound port, and the body lies gently on the ears. The fatigue did not set in even after I listened for more than two hours, which is similar to the experience I had with the Jabra Elite 75t wireless earbuds. The tips provided a good seal while the arches were perfectly molded into the cymba to hold the buds in place during light exercises, such as squats and lunges. Pushups, lunges and ab crunches. The WF-SP800N, while heavier than other models, felt very light on my ears. These buds are too large to be useful for lifting your arms. They got in the way of dumbbell raising. The buds can also slip easily, especially when doing side planks.
For a better fit, I prefer the Elite Active75t or beats Powerbeats Pro. Review of Sony WF-SP800N: Smart controls The WF-1000XM3’s protruded posterior was one area that the WF1000XM3 failed to excel in. Its touch controls didn’t work well. Sony must have heard this criticism because the WF–SP800N is a complete 180 that offers far better touch input. A tiny bump at the sensor’s end now serves two purposes. It acts as a border that keeps the user within the range of the sensor and also provides a second way to perform touch gestures. The WF-1000XM3 responds better to swipes than taps. Taps are fine on these buds but swiping gives you more precise results. Sony programmed the WFSP800N with on ear detection.

Music will automatically pause when you remove the buds from your ears and resume playback when they are worn. It works half the time, and my buds continued playing songs even when they were placed on a flat surface. Since their launch, the noise-canceling WF1000XM3 earbuds are considered to be the best-sounding wireless earbuds available. The 1000XM3s don’t have any official sweat or water resistance so they aren’t really suited for running or any other exercise. The new WF-SP800N earbuds are $199.99 — Sony has a better name for these things. It retains noise cancellation and adds IP55 certification for dust resistance and water resistance.
And it even extends battery life to a remarkable nine hours of uninterrupted listening (with ANC enabled). They are $30 cheaper than their launch price of the 1000XM3 earbuds. However, it is not difficult to find them at a lower price. They pack a powerful bass and have plenty of EQ fine-tuning. These earbuds are more subtle than the previous gym-focused wireless earbuds. The earbuds have a microphone and the Sony logo on the outside. A touchpad is available for gesture control. Because of the glossy texture and the larger size than the touchpad on the 1000XM3s, it is easy to feel your finger on this touch area. There’s also a gentle slope that makes it easier to locate by feeling. Track controls are handled by the right earbud, while ambient sound mode and noise cancellation can be toggled on the left. You can still use the “Quick Attention” trick by Sony to temporarily increase outside noise, so that you can hear what’s going on around you. Sony comes with three sizes of silicone eartips.
You will lose the memory foam tips that come along with the 1000XM3s. There are also two sizes of support arches. If you don’t feel the arcs are necessary, the buds will still fit in your ears without them. It’s possible for something to feel completely comfortable for one person to cause discomfort for another. I prefer that the arcs are an optional feature of the physical design and not a permanent fixture. I did however manage to break one of the silicone ear tips, so be careful when fitting them. However, the 800Ns are still quite bulky in comparison to other competitors such as the Jaybird Vistas or second-gen Google Pixel Buds. They do protrude from my ears but they stay put when I run or am in the middle of a workout. They never came loose. It is quite chunky, not at the level of Powerbeats Pro but far from the sleeker options like the Pixel Buds Pro, AirPods Pro and Galaxy Buds. The case can fit into any pocket in your jeans.
The case only holds enough juice to last one full charge. Sony claims that the buds will last approximately 13 hours if you don’t use noise cancellation. The case also contains 13 additional full charges. Both those numbers fall to nine when noise cancellation is enabled. This still makes the earbuds with the longest continuous endurance. The case is simple and straightforward, with just a USB-C connector. A single exterior LED can be used to indicate charging status. These lack the smart Sony Wf-Sp800n Black Friday Deals 2021 design that was featured with the WFXB700s, Sony’s true wireless earbuds. The case’s top is translucent so that you can see the red light shining through. This is something that I would love to see Sony do for all its products, so there are no frustrating charging mishaps.
