The Sony WH-CH500 are on-ear headphones that have a lightweight but cheap design that are okay for mixed usage. They have a good 20-hour battery life and amazing wireless range. Unfortunately, their sound signature is not as good as other on-ears we've reviewed so far and they don't have a great isolation performance. On the upside, they are stable enough for running.

The only problem I have with CH500 is the tightness of the fit. And especially if you wear glasses, you may want to consider opting for the CH510 for this reason.

a good Bluetooth headset for its price, and it is undoubtedly better than others sold at the same price tag. It is especially useful as a portable headset to take on the road with you, as it offers superior audio quality compared to in-ear headphones. However, for some people, the headphones can be uncomfortable to wear for a long time, and they also seem to be a bit fragile.
