I bought these with the intention of using them while cycling, as the cord from my current Sony set gets in the way and tends to creep up my jersey and cause tugging on the buds. After putting in 20 miles last night, in a variety of wind and traffic conditions, here's my initial thoughts:
Good noise cancellation options - Both settings work pretty well. I was able to hear traffic noise with that option selected, and can hear voices but not much else on the other.
Sound - these sound great. Nice clear highs, good powerful bass. See Cons for issues with adjustability
Low-profile design/Stays put in ear - They are bigger than Airpods, but these actually stay in your ear (why i bought these as they have a similar retention system as my favorite wired pair)
Bluetooth - connection seems pretty stable, but I've noticed occasionally it drops and then recovers quickly, usually in less than a second.
Wind noise - Clearly Sony didn't put this on a cyclist to try out or just didn't care. The wind noise is crazy when traveling at speed.So much so that I'm going to give them one more ride and see if it's something I can live with or not, it's really, really overpowering
Equalizer options - You have to download the app to manage the connection and earphone settings. This has a ton of preset settings for the equalizer, but you can't manually tweak them to your liking.
The Mic - picks up a lot of background noise from conversations going on around. I've received multiple complaints of background noise when I've been in a moderately busy room with normal conversation levels occurring around me. This does not happen with my wired earbuds.
Phone calls are mono only - Not sure why this is, it's unlike any other experience I've had with headphones and calls. The call audio only comes out of one bud in standard phone calls, WhatsApp, and Bluejeans calls. Worth noting that I'm pairing with an Iphone 7 Plus. This is a big Con for me.
Used the headphones for a bit over a week now, all of my observations above are still spot on.
Battery life has proved itself outstanding. I'm really liking the charge pod, and when empty, the buds seem to get a decent recharge once stored in a pretty short time. ~15 mins got them to "medium" charge level from totally empty affording me at least an extra 30-40 minutes of usage before I was able to fully recharge them.
The mono sound in calls still annoys me to no end. I'm hoping they'll put out a firmware update soon to address this issue.
The wind noise is still pretty overpowering, but I've gotten used to it. Put in another 60 miles on the bike in varying wind conditions. It can get really loud when there's high winds, but under normal wind conditions the sound doesn't bug me as much as it first did.
If Sony fixes the mono call issue, mic picking up too much background noise, and equalizer configuration limitations, these would definitely get 4 stars from me.
- Active noise cancelling isn't that great. When turning on noise cancelling, I can tell it's there and it help muffle environment noise a bit, but it's nowhere near the level of good noise cancelling such as Bose QC20. QC20 can almost erase noise, while SP700N's noise cancelling can only reduce noise by a bit. On the other hand, QC20 is more expensive, larger, not wireless and not water resistant. It's not really a reasonable expectation for SP700N to match QC20. I would not buy SP700N just for its noise cancelling feature.
- Even though SP700N's noise cancelling is weak, it has pretty good noise isolation. It provides similar level of noise isolation as Shure SE215. This is an important reason for me to choose it over other truly wireless headphones like AirPods or SoundSport Free, which barely blocks any noise.
- Truly wireless. Water resistant. This is perfect for gym. No more cables in the way. No more cleaning off sweet from cables. No more worries about sweet damaging the headphones.
- There is some latency problem. When watching Youtube from Chrome on my Android phone, the latency can be over a second and makes the video barely watchable. However I find Youtube app has some optimization to reduce the latency to a fraction of a second. There's still some small latency, but much less noticeable. I have also tried MX Player and TED app on Android, and both have optimization similar to Youtube app. Overall I find video experience with SP700N bearable. I am fine with this because I mostly only listen to music in gym. As a side note, it also takes about a second to switch to next song, or change volume.
- Sound quality exceeds my expectation. It's not a Hi-Fi headphone, but the sound signature is pleasing. The sound stage is also pretty good. I can feel the music is around me, not just inside my head.
- Build quality of the headphones themselves is pretty good. Though charging case feels a bit cheaply made, especially the lid.
- I briefly tried ambient sound mode. It seems to does what it should do: let in ambient sound to counter noise isolation. I don't really use this feature. I think this might be what the noise cancelling hardware device is really for.
Overall, I am happy with this purchase. It's not perfect and has quite a few flaws, but none that bothers me a lot for my particular use case. I won't recommend SP700N as all-purpose headphones, but for gym use I think this is a nice option.

La calidad del sonido es muy buena, estamos hablando de Sony una marca reconocida por esto.
El problema de estos audífonos, para algunos bastante grande, dependiendo de las necesidades y el uso, es LA AUTONOMÍA, es una lastima que los audífonos tengan solamente 3hrs de batería y al cargarlos duren 1:30hrs para la carga completa. Si lo que buscas son horas largas de audio no son recomendados, si los usarás para ejercicio, correr, entrenar, son una excelente adquisición sobretodo por su sonido (y más si los encuentras en descuento como en mi caso).
Es una lastima que un producto tan bueno tenga tan poca autonomía, ya que la competencia lo rebasa por mucho en esto.
Los agudos son muy malos, la cancelación de sonido no es muy buena, es difícil saber si esta prendida o no, los bajos son saturados y poco claros, quizás solo funcionen bien para géneros como rap, cumbia y aquellos donde el bajo esta muy cargado.
Por el precio esperaba algo mas..,
Sin embargo, si no eres exigente en la calidad de audio seguro no te importaran mucho esos detalles...
Biggest issue: I lost the charging cradle/case, which renders these useless, as you need it to charge them. A new case is $121.04 plus ~$10 shipping in Canada. So - keep track of the case if you buy these, and don't expect great audio quality!
Audio wise I find the Jaybirds sound better and the Elites a mild step above. The Sony headphone app has equalizer presets that helps a bit but you can't manually adjust it where as the other two you can with their respective apps. Of course I know audio is a bit of a personal preference so that's only my opinion. The active noise cancellation is good but not Bose QC good (and I'm not a Bose fan but I do acknowledge that their QC line is good noise cancellation). While on public transit I can still hear some of the vehicle noise and I noticed that it mildly effected the audio I'm listening to but for my needs it's perfectly fine.
I'm knocking off a star for the somewhat flimsy case though. It's plastic and feels like they'd fall apart and also there is an audio delay if you're using it to watch video(I do not). Do I find them pricey, yes but these fit exactly my needs and are super light and comfortable so I like them.
Only issue I had so far seems to be the charging case, a few times I opened the headphones and they were partially charged, could have been my error
Lo que me gustó es el modo cancelación de ruido, si funciona y dejas de escuchar bastante del sonido exterior a menos que sea demasiado fuerte. También se sujetan bien a los oídos.
Lo que no me gusto es un poco el diseño, son abultados y salen bastante del oído, son incómodos... después de 30 minutos de tenerlos puestos ami me lastimaban, incluso cambiando el plástico por uno más pequeño. La calidad de sonido no es la mejor y están bien nadamas... pero lo que más me molestó es el micrófono... en todas las llamadas tuvieron problemas para escucharme y decían que mi voz se cortaba bastante, cuando quitaba los audifonos y hablaba por el celular me escuchaban bien.
Para ver videos tienen un delay que no es mucho pero es suficiente para arruinar un video.
En cuanto a la batería la verdad no duran tanto, incluso con su estuche cargador se agotan rápido.
En general son audífonos caros que no dan un buen valor por el dinero, ahórrenselo, a mi en el buen fin me costaron 2,200 pero luego veo aquí precios ridiculos de más de 5,000.
