The highlight of this product lineup is the company’s first truly noise cancelling headphone that also supports digital noise cancelling technology. With smartphone makers ditching the proprietary 3.5mm headphone jack, it has become clear that truly wireless headphones are the way forward for the industry as well as consumers. With WF-SP700N, Sony is offering the flexibility to experience without tangling with any cables, and yet get core features like noise cancellation and splash-proof design.
