I have problems with earbuds or in-ear headphones. I don't know if it's because my ear is oddly shaped, or maybe it's just me, but I've never finished feeling entirely comfortable with classic wireless headphones. I always have the feeling that they are going to pop out of my ear and fall to the ground.
In this sense, I am one of those who prefer to use headband headphones, and although I have a USB headset of this type that I use to listen and record music on my PC for my crappy YouTube music channel, it was about time I changed those headphones for good ones wireless headband headphones. After evaluating several options I opted for a Sony WH-CH510.
Sony WH-CH510 in review: a cheap bluetooth headset with a good battery
One of the things that angers me the most about wireless devices is that you have to constantly charge them. If the mobile phone was not enough, now you also have to charge the headphones, the speakers, the console controls and even the table lamps. Therefore, one of the things that I appreciate most about the Sony WH-CH510 is its great autonomy: according to the manufacturer after a full charge offer a duration of around 35 hours. I have not measured it by finger, but I can assure you that if we use the headphones a few hours a day we can spend the week peacefully without connecting them to a power outlet.
Regarding the design, I opted for the white model -also available in blue or black-, which together with the rough surface finish manage to have a premium and elegant appearance that is more than acceptable. Plastic is not the best in the world, but the truth is that to be worth less than 40 euros the value for money is quite worth it. Mini point for Sony.
Another detail that has surprised me the most is how easy it is to synchronize with the smartphone or computer. The point is not that the helmets are seamlessly linked to the emitting device, but that the timing is really fast: As soon as we press the power button, the Bluetooth connection is established almost instantly. Another mini point for Sony.
If I had to put a fault to these wireless headband headphones, it would undoubtedly be their ergonomics. The headband is adjustable and can be enlarged or folded, and the ear pads are quite comfortable for the ear panel. However, after long sessions of use the truth is that they can make our ears a little sore. It is still a small annoyance that goes away after a few minutes, but it is important to mention it.
The sound quality on the other hand is not bad either. The music is heard clearly and crystal clear. Obviously there are better headband headphones, but in that case we would have to start looking at helmets above 100 euros. If we had to give it a grade in this sense it would be a 7.5 or an 8 out of 10.
Regarding the rest of technical details, the Sony WH-CH510 have the following functionalities:
- Fast charging: with 10 minutes of charging we get 90 minutes of autonomy.
- Hands-free function thanks to the microphone located on the right panel.
- HD microphone with noise cancellation and echo suppression.
- Voice assistant, compatible with Google and Siri.
- Control panel with 3 buttons on the right earbud to increase the volume, go to the next song and answer calls.
- Supported audio codecs: SBC and AAC.
- Bluetooth 5.0.
- USB Type-C port.
- Weight 132 g.
Price and availability
At the time of writing this review the Sony WH-CH510 wireless headphones are priced at approximately 37.89 euros at Amazon with more than 9,700 ratings and an average rating of 4.5 stars. As we mentioned a little above, it is available in white, black and dark blue.
In short, we are facing headband headphones with great autonomy as a highlight, with a synchronization process that works like silk. It has a built-in HD microphone to invoke the Google Assistant or Siri, which also serves to answer calls. The sound quality when listening to music is good, although after long periods of use it can generate some discomfort (let's say that if you take them off for a while it seems that you are still wearing them).
The design is also one of its great attractions, and the value for money it presents is simply unbeatable. In short, good bluetooth helmets for those looking for something a little above average, but without reaching the price levels of premium headphones.
