Sony has expanded its audio portfolio in India by launching the WF-H800 true wireless earbuds. It supports all three major voice assistants, including Google Assistant, Alexa and Siri. They also sport an ergonomic Tri-hold design, which is “designed to contact on three different points on the ear for a secure, comfortable fit”. The Sony WF-H800 has been priced at Rs. 14,990, and is already available for purchase on Flipkart and Sony retail stores in a single Black color option.
The WF-H800 earphones come with 6mm dome-type Neodymium drivers, and support frequencies between 20Hz and 20,000Hz with 44.1kHz sampling. They operate in the 2.4Ghz band and support Bluetooth 5.0 with an effective connectivity range of up to 30 feet (~10 meters). Supported audio formats include SBC and AAC, but there’s no support for LDAC. The buds also miss out on waterproofing and active noise cancellation, although, Sony is offering what it calls ‘Automatic AI Noise Cancellation’.
