  • Solid audio performance and active noise cancellation
  • Decent battery life
  • ANC doesn't block out background noise
  • Not compatible with Sony | Headphones Connect app

Summary

Sony WH-CH710N are affordable over-ear wireless headphones with active noise cancellation. Despite its unassuming design, the WH-CH710N shares some features with the WH-1000XM4. However,the headphones aren't terribly effective at dialing back sounds like computer keyboard typing or office chatter. They aren't compatible with the Sony | Headphones Connect app, so their sound profile can't be customized.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Sony WH-CH710N represent the middle ground in Sony's vast lineup of wireless headphones. They've got more premium features than Sony's entry-level models, without the premium price of flagship models like the WH-1000XM3. Among them, battery life and voice assistant compatibility stand out.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
Sony's WH-CH710N noise-canceling headphones cost $199.99. ANC is good, not great, and the audio performance features robust bass and crisp highs. The lack of an app is a bummer, especially as in-app EQ and ANC are becoming common.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful audio performance with rich bass depth and crisp highs
  • Easy-to-use controls
  • Supports Bluetooth 5.0 and AAC and SBC Bluetooth codecs
Cons[**]
  • ANC is a bit too sculpted at times

Sentiment Score[*] 55%
Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Sony WH-CH710N Wireless noise cancelling headphones are fairly simple over-ears. Unfortunately, their ANC feature doesn't block out a lot of background noises, and they don't have any sound customization features. They also have an inconsistent audio delivery in the mid and treble ranges, so you may perceive sounds differently depending on their fit, seal, and positioning on your head.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable fit
  • Comfortable bass-heavy sound profile
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Not compatible with the Sony | Headphones Connect app

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Sony WH-CH710N Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones were released alongside the Sony WF-XB800 True Wireless Earbuds in April 2020. The headphones use Bluetooth 5.0 with support for SBC and AAC codecs. They don't seem to support LDAC or aptX - which means you don't get Hi-Res Audio support. Sony hasn't given us any information yet as to when we can expect them, but our money is on a late 2020 release date (October or November)

Pros[**]
  • Powerful noise cancellation
  • Solid battery life
  • Easy-to-listen controls
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Sony WH-CH710N are Sony's most affordable noise-cancelling headphones in its range yet. The barebones design features oval-shaped, matte-black ear cups featuring a small Sony logo on each side. The headphones are capable of an impressive 35 hours of playtime in Noise Cancelling mode, although there's a lengthy seven-hour wait to charge them up again.

  • Ambient Sound mode isn't for everyone
