Short lifespan.....

 

I went through 4 sets of Motorola headsets in less than a year, so I was hoping Sony had a quality product, no luck, these only lasted a week and then died completely. they were not subjected to rough service or moisture, they just quit.

Comfortable, easy access buttons, over the head instead of behind the neck. good sound quality

COMPLETELY QUIT AFTER ! WEEK !!!, headband is not tight enough. (they come off too easily) ; Could use 2 more steps of volume, ear pads don't block enough background noise

Best all-day headset I know!

 

Supposedly worked better with firmware 1.03, but it came with 1.04 and can't be downgraded. Suspect the good reviews came with the 1.03 firmware.

VERY light, I work on the phone a lot and these are easily the most comfortable all-day headphones I have tried ; Good sound quality for music. Equal to most on-ear headphones

VERY light = VERY delicate ; Store them in a box or drawer where they won't get crushed

Awesome!

 

These headphones worked great with my iPhone 3GS iOS4, as well as my laptop dual booting 64bit Ubuntu 10.10 and Win7 64bit. Range is decent, and I had little to no trouble syncing it up with either device ; I would say that these are some of the best...

100$ !!! No way ! 19.99$ would be fair.

 

I both those bluetooth headset to listen HI-FI music and TV via my Sony HWS-BTA2W bluetooth audio transmitter. I was considering a standard 900 Mhz wireless headset such as the MDR-RF925RK but the guy at SonyStyle sold me those DR-BT101. What a...

Just what I wanted!!

 

Currently there is no other wireless headphone tech than can give you truly high quality sound anywhere in your house other than a class 1 bluetooth device on A2DP. Now I want a bluetooth receiver unit so I can output sound to a stereo downstairs....

I'm using these as my new stereo headphones on Win7. I have confirmed that these work with Windows 7 64bit Pro & an Asus BT211 Bluetooth dongle ; With the class 1 dongle I can go anywhere in my apartment with no interference issues. Sound is great,...

Had a prob where the device wasn't showing up under playback/recording devices and couldn't connect. I did a clean install with SP1 RC slipstreamed install disc. Installed Asus BT Suite and headphones connected just fine. Audio properties automatically...

So far, I'm impressed.

 

I've not tried to pair with my iPhone, but it should work there as well.

I rarely buy Sony product because of a really bad experience I had some ten years ago, but this headset is pretty darned awesome ; It produces very good (not great) sound quality and holds it's charge for many hours. Charge it up once, and I can watch...

Would like to see a noise-canceling version of these someday

Excellent BT Headphones

 

These headphones have paired and worked with the iPhone3g,3gs,4 and an iPad. In addition, they paired with my 2010 Mac Mini despite some reports stating otherwise. The pause/play and skip and previous buttons all work. The sound is really nice and the...

Great headset

 

I bought them at $79.99 last year. They are $49.00 now, a great deal.

Good battery life! I don't know about 11 hours though. Great sound quality. Connected to my Lenovo desktop, I-pod Touch 4G, and Samsung Phone

The only cons are they are not very tight on the head, and the ear pieces sit on the ear, instead of around it. So they can slip off. Also I could not get it to connect to m HP Mini 1000. But I have heard others with the same problem so I think it is...

Sony Over-The-Head Stereo Bluetooth Headphone Black (DRBT101/BLK)

 

Excellent battery life ; Crisp, clear sound quality ; Remote functions work perfectly with my new LG880 Mini

Unable so far to get this unit to work properly with my HP DV7 notebook, and Sony Support has no drivers available

great

 

Really nice product, looks good, sounds good. Also feels ok to have them on for a few hours at a time.

I wasn't expecting much at first. Got this as a birthday gift when I asked for a decent set of headphones. Thinking its the blue-tooth you would be paying for and the sound being second, I was really impressed when I tested them out. Hooked up to my G1...

None so far. Hooked it up to vista with no problem but I need a blue-tooth adapter for my laptop. No problems syncing up to my ps3 but don't know if ps3 supports blue-tooth headsets for all audio functions
