Seven months ago, I wrote about how I connected two pairs of headphones to a Blu-ray player. That worked okay, but I got tired of untangling headphones every time my wife and I wanted to watch a movie.
Then this Sony Blu-ray player — with Bluetooth — popped up brand new on Craigslist for under $88. I bought it, and tried it out with both AirPods and AirPods Pro. In each case, it technically worked, but the AirPods were too loud, and the AirPods Pro were too soft. The Bluetooth volume control built into the player didn’t work to change the volume of the AirPods.
So I had to figure something out. What are the cheapest true wireless headphones that sound decent and are compatible with the Sony player and its Bluetooth volume control? I decided to take a chance on the clumsily named Sony WF-XB700 true wireless earbuds for $60. They worked great, and provide a wide range of volume control.
Now we no longer have to think about untangling cords. We just pop-in a disc with one earbud in my ear and the other in my wife’s and it’s off to the movies!
