Sony MDR-XB50BT Noise Cancelling Earphones Review
A pair of earphones is more than just a headphone. It’s a perfect way to enjoy music anywhere, anytime. The Sony MDR-XB50BT noise cancelling earphones come with a built-in ear detection sensor and are splash-proof and IPX5-rated. They’re also noise-canceling and offer up to 7 hours of battery life on a single charge.
Designed with comfort in mind, the MW08 is made from ceramic and stainless steel to reduce wind and noise.
Despite the MW08’s IPX5 rating, it is not completely water resistant. The earbuds are heavy, so they don’t work well in rainy and cold environments. They also lack rubber wings. One advantage of the MW08 is its awareness function, which allows you to feel your surroundings when you’re outdoors. In addition to being waterproof, the earbuds are lightweight, but they are bulky.
Bluetooth 5.2 lets you easily pair the headphones with your phone or tablet. The headphones support AAC and SBC. Bluetooth multipoint is also available for seamless pairing. The Master & Dynamic MW08 is compatible with Android devices. Bluetooth multipoint may be implemented in a future firmware update.
You can download the Master & Dynamic Connect app for free from Google Play or iTunes. This app is helpful for setting and changing default settings. You can choose from All Day ANC or a stronger aNC. Both modes can block external noise while maintaining a comfortable level of noise canceling. You can also customize your ANC and ambient sound level by adjusting the app’s controls.
The MFW08 headphones both feature a wind-reducing talk solution and a microphone array that offers active noise cancellation. Both headphones have a unique and sleek design. They are made of ceramic and stainless steel and have a matte finish that is scratch-resistant. The MW08 is waterproof up to IPX5 and features a rechargeable battery that will last for up to 10 hours.
MFW08 Sport headphones have shatter-proof sapphire glass and a custom Kevlar charging case. MFW08 Sport headphones offer two-hour noise-cancellation and a unique, custom-fitting memory foam ear tips. If you’re a gym freak or enjoy playing sports, you’ll love these headphones. You can buy them for $299 and still get quality sound in the process.
