In our Sony WF-C500 review, we found these buds to be amazing value at their full $99 retail price. So its really hard to overlook the bargain that is $58 and the lowest ever price we've seen on these buds right now. 

Sony has a strong reputation for producing some of the best performing earbuds around, and although these don't offer ANC for blocking out the noise of your surroundings, they still offer a great haul of features. 

You’ll need to download the Sony Headphones Connect app to play around with the WF-C500’s special features, which will get you 360 Reality Audio, DSEE, and Equalizer. Plus, there's an activity tracker to analyze how you use the buds, a music player with volume slider, battery level indicators, firmware updates, and a Bluetooth Connection Quality setting to prioritize stable connectivity or sound quality.  

Music sounds punchy and although their profile might not be as depth-filled as the Sony WF-1000XM4, you can expect powerful lows and crisp highs, along with under-emphasized mids. Should you want to tweak the sound, you can manually adjust frequencies or select from nine presets that prioritize different sonic elements, depending on the music genre or content.

With an IPX4 water resistance rating that matches the AirPods, a battery life playback time of around 10 hours, and the level of sound Sony has managed to engineer into these tiny buds, the Sony WF-C500 are the earbud bargain you really can't afford to overlook. Snag them while you can.

If you're looking for more great savings on Sony headphones, the Sony WH-1000XM4 Black Friday deal has crashed to $228 and the Sony WF-1000XM4 noise-cancelling earbuds drop by $100 to $178.
