Sony headphones have long been proven to be the best. There are in the assortment of the brand and a number of devices for swimming. It is necessary to understand their features and review the models. And you should also consider an equally important point - the connection of headphones, the correct actions with which will help to avoid problems.
Of course, Sony swimming headphones should be 100% waterproof. The slightest contact between water and electricity is extremely dangerous. In most cases, designers prefer to use the Bluetooth protocol for remote synchronization with the sound source. However, models with an integrated MP3 player are also appearing now.
Most often, headphones for swimming have an in-channel design. This provides additional tightness and improves sound quality.
In addition, interchangeable pads of various shapes are included. They allow you to adapt the headphones to individual needs. Sony is highly regarded for its excellence, reliability and attractive design. The variety of colors and design solutions is very large.
Speaking about waterproof Sony headphones that can be used in the pool for both amateurs and professionals, it is worth paying attention to the WI-SP500 model . The manufacturer promises increased convenience and reliability of such equipment. To simplify the work, the Bluetooth protocol was chosen, so there is no need for wires. NFC technology has also been implemented. Sound transmission in this way is possible with one touch when approaching a particular mark.
The degree of protection against moisture IPX4 is quite sufficient for most swimmers. Headphones do not fall out of ears even in especially humid conditions.
Listening to music or another program is stable during a very active workout. The battery lasts for 6-8 hours of continuous operation. The earphone mount is pretty stable.
Buyers of the WF-SP700N model will not experience any restrictions in water. These are also great wireless noise canceling headphones. As in the previous model, Bluetooth and NFC are used here. The level of protection is the same - IPX4. Optimum settings can be made with a simple touch.

How to connect?
Connecting Bluetooth headphones to the phone does not cause problems. First you need to enable the corresponding option in the device itself. Then you need to make the device visible in the Bluetooth range (according to the operating instructions). After that, you need to go into your phone’s settings and find available devices.
Occasionally, an access code may be requested. Almost always it is 4 units. If such a code does not work, you should again look at the instructions.
Attention: if you want to connect the headphones to another phone, you must first disconnect the previous connection, and then search for the device.
The exception is models with multipoint mode. Sony provides a number of other recommendations.
To prevent water from damaging the headphones, it is better to use slightly denser earbuds than standard samples. The liners have two positions. Choose one that is more convenient. It is useful to connect the headphones with a special diving strap. If the earbuds do not come in even after changing position, you will have to adjust the bow.
