Reviewed

Are you reluctant to spend more than £100 on wireless headphones, worried about losing an earpiece or looking for better battery life for a single listening session? Designed for sport, with splash and sweat resistance, the Sony Wi-SP500 headphones aim to form a neat compromise that get away with the bulk of larger headphones, while avoiding the disadvantages of early truly wireless options. Our lab sees whether they meet our expectations.
