Sony true wireless earbuds will probably launch 2 models – WF-SP800N and WF-XB700.
This year almost all major brands have entered the Truly Wireless Earbuds market in India. Following the trend, Japan’s major brand Sony might just join the race with the launch of 2 of its truly wireless earbuds models here in India. The models that are supposed to launch are already listed on the Sony India website as “WF-SP800N Truly Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones for Sports” and “WF-XB700 Truly Wireless Headphones with Extra Bass.”
The Sony WF-SP800N model was launched globally in May this year at $199 (INR 15,000 approx) and the Sony WF-XB700N was launched globally in April for $130 (INR 10,000 approx).
The prices for both the models are expected to be a little lower than this because Sony has been historically known to launch products (especially audio products) at a more affordable price in India compared to the rest of the world. The company hopes to gain more market share with this aggressive pricing strategy.
Both the models of Sony true wireless earbuds will fall into the premium category with these price tags.
As far as the availability is concerned, both the models are already listed on the Sony India website with ‘Available soon’ written as indicative of a launch soon.
A Popular twitter tipster and many other popular twitter handles have indicated that the probable launch of Sony true wireless earbuds will happen on 24th June. Sony India twitter handle has also retweeted many of these tweets providing a sort of credibility to all these tweets.
The company is using the hashtag #BoostYourVibes to promote the upcoming product launch which will hopefully launch Sony true wireless earbuds.
Since both the models of Sony true wireless earbuds fall into the premium category, they are supposed to compete with the likes of Apple Airpods, Samsung Galaxy Buds+, Klipsch, and Jabra. So, the players in the affordable segment can breathe easily for now as there is no new serious competition entering the market.
