Sony's upcoming Galaxy Buds 2 challenger may have better battery life

The upcoming Sony WF-C500 wireless earbuds won't come with noise-canceling, though.

What you need to know

  • Sony's upcoming true wireless earbuds have leaked through an early listing on Walmart's website.
  • The leak reveals some key specs of the WF-C500, including up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge.
  • It is also likely to be water-resistant with an IPX4 rating.

Sony's next true wireless earbuds may have longer battery life on a single charge than Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, as well as water resistance capabilities, a new leak has revealed.

The new details were leaked via a pre-release listing on Walmart's online marketplace, which has since been removed. As per The Walkman Blog, which obtained photos of the earbuds as well as the specs sheet, the upcoming Sony WF-C500 might retail for around $80.

For that price, you could get up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge and a total of 20 hours with the charging case. By comparison, the Galaxy Buds 2 can last over five hours with noise-canceling enabled and under eight hours with ANC disabled.

However, the Buds 2 may not compare by single-charge numbers, but at 29 hours with ANC off, they'll keep you going a bit longer. Meanwhile, Sony's pricey WF-1000XM4 ($279) get up to 24 hours of total battery life with ANC turned on and 36 hours when that feature is disabled.

The Buds 2 will also have a leg up in noise-canceling capabilities over the WF-C500, which reportedly won't come equipped with active noise-canceling, although that's not too surprising at just $80.

In terms of design, the upcoming earbuds look a bit smaller than the WF-1000XM4. Based on the leaked images, the WF-C500 is also more flat, so it won't protrude as much from your ears as the WF-1000XM4, and they also won't feature the same premium build.

The WF-C500 were also spotted with an IPX4 rating for sweat and splash resistance. This should make the upcoming earbuds an ideal companion for fitness enthusiasts, as well as a serious competitor to the best cheap wireless earbuds.

Bluetooth connectivity will be supposedly powered by an Airoha chip.

The upcoming pair is also expected to ship in four colorways: black, green, white, and orange. That said, the availability of these color options may vary by country.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
