Sony unveiled its latest pair of truly wireless noise-cancelling earbuds, the WF-SP800N. 

Designed for users with an active lifestyle, the WF-SP800N earbuds have an IP55 rating for water and dust resistance. Sony says the earbuds can even be washed.

With noise cancellation turned on, the WF-SP800N can last up to 9 hours (18 hours with the charging case). If noise cancellation is disabled, they can last up to 13 hours (26 hours with the charging case). A 10-minute quick charge can deliver up to 60 minutes of music playback with noise cancelling.

To keep the earbuds in your ears during physical activities, the WF-SP800N earbuds come with soft-cushioned arc supporter and a 3D-curved design for a secure, comfortable fit. 

Other features include ambient sound mode, adaptive sound control, Sony's Extra Bass sound profile, and Quick Attention to lower the volume and chat with someone without removing the earbuds. 

The WF-SP800N are priced at US$199.99.

Locally, it's recommended retail price is S$299 and is available from June 2020 at Sony StoresOnline, and Sony's flagship store on Lazada.
