Sony introduces new wireless earbuds fit for your workouts and with strong bass

To no one's surprise, CES 2018 has been home to announcement after announcement of new speakers, headphones, TVs, and more that ship with Google Assistant built-in. However, what's notable is the company retroactively adding Assistant to its older headphones through an upcoming software update. The new WF-SP700N earbuds feature digital noise cancellation and are IPX4-rated for splash and sweat resistance. Settings allow for all noise to be blocked, while an Ambient Mode lets you continue to hear surrounding sounds. Sony claims strong bass output and a "one-touch open" case that can provide 9 additional hours of charge. Available in pink, yellow, black, and white, these headphones will retail for $179.99.

The three earphones heading our way include the WF-SP700N, WI-SP600N and the WI-SP500, though the SP500 earphones don't appear to include the Google Assistant support. They have the same noise cancellation features and splash-proofing, while jumping to six hours of battery life. Though it isn't really significant for the human ears, the frequency response of these headphones top at 100 kHz, and there is a 4.4mm Pentaconn balanced audio connector, coupled with a cable that has the 3.5mm jack.
