‘Super Affordable’: $100 Sony WH-CH520 Wireless Headphones are More Than Stylish

When it comes to portable consumer audio, Sony has long sat at the top of the pile. The brand has been killing it for years with both its earbuds and headphones. Take the Sony WH-1000XM5 we reviewed at release or the insane Sony INZONE gaming headphone range. Now, Sony is focusing on bringing some of its best-performing software and hardware features to the Sony WH-CH520 Wireless Headphones.

Priced at AUD$100, they might be cut-price or ‘mid-tier’ versions of the aforementioned products, however, they stand on their own in a category the brand is looking to dominate moving forward.

Designed to be both stylish and functional, the Sony WH-CH520 Wireless Headphones feature a lightweight build along with swivel earcups that gently slip on and off. Comfort is achieved with an adjustable headband, cushion and soft ear pad combination, and there are plenty of colours available, four in fact. Choose from Blue, Black, Cream and White.

Although the Sony WH-CH520 Wireless Headphones are without noise cancellation, this results in up to 50 hours of battery life. However, what’s more impressive is the 3-minute quick charge ability that gives you 1.5 hours of listening time in an instant.

While we’re yet to formally test these headphones ourselves, we’re very familiar with Sony’s DSEE software, a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine that restores the harmonics and liveliness lost during typical music compression, giving the listener a more authentic performance. But that’s not all. You can even tailor the music to your own taste with EQ settings on the Sony Headphones Connect app.

Another feature typically reserved for headphones two or three times the price is dual Bluetooth connections. This combines with the built-in microphone which provides you with hands-free calling, making answering a call, joining an online class or even a work meeting even easier.
