Sony is not only known for making good-looking headphones but also the best noise-cancelling headphones and great options in the mid-price range like the MDR-Z1R.

But now the question arrives, are they also maintaining the competition among their affordable models?

Sony WH-CH510 Headphone Review

There is a perception that Sony always tends to be more expensive than the competition. So I was surprised to see that in this case, for once Sony came in as the affordable model on test.

Unfortunately, when I got close to the headphones, it was clear that their build quality was lacking. You can tell by touching them that they are made out of plastic and have a cheap feel to them. This makes one question about the durability of this product.

Design & Build

These headphones are remarkably light, but not in an impressive way. It makes us instead wonder like what makes them so much lighter than others, perhaps they’re made of cheap plastic?

Like many other wireless headphones out in the market, these are also come in three colors: white, black and blue.

The low weight of these headphones does not exert much pressure on the head. Even though the ear pads tend to tighten a bit, there is not much padding in them.

In addition to this, it’s strange that there is no padding on the hoop which makes the headphone press against the skull.

In short, this shows that the headphones are not as comfortable as we thought to be.


The buttons which control playback are located on the right side of the headphone.

We found its size is a little better than what we get on the Jays, but they do not protrude sufficiently, and as a result it is still a little hard to feel with the finger.

Connectivity & Battery

Also, it comes with a USB connection, which is compatible with the modern USB-C standard.

This means that if you charge its batteries for 10 minutes it will provide up to 90 minutes of playing time. 

Sadly, Sony also has no app in store just yet which can be used to further customize settings and audio profiles.


The sound quality of these headphones is pretty average. They have small speakers, which may be why the sound is a bit unnatural and strained. 

Listening to acoustic music on these headphones gives an okey feel with clear instrumentals.

When it comes to low budgets, there is no need to be too picky. In fact, it’s okay if you don’t have too high-demands about the quality of music you get in this price range.

Sony is good at making expensive headphones but it is harder for them to make better headphones at low prices.

In this case, they have gone too far with the money-saving knife and it has affected both the quality of sound and the comfort. Despite being lightweight, they also sit comfortably and feels irritating to wear after a while.

However, we can’t deny that Sony WH-CH510 has plus points for its fast charging capabilities and excellent battery life.

That’s it for today, my friend.

Thank You. Have a nice day!
