Sony DR-BT50 Bluetooth headphones review


The Sony DR-BT50s are comfortable wireless headphones with decent sound quality and just the right amount of features to make them useful without being cumbersome. You pay for the Bluetooth, though

Conclusion Sony has produced a really solid set of comfortable headphones with great sound quality and just the right set of features. Even if you don't have a Sony MP3 player or phone, the BR-BT50s will still work seamlessly. If you can justify £130...

Awesome sound for music lovers; wasn't meant for cell headsetters


First of all these sound great. I'm no audiophile, but my roommates are musicians and were all very impressed with the sound quality. I have, however, read some reviews that say the mids are lacking. I found the overall sound to be anything but. Once...

Awesome sound, very comfortable fit, noise cancellation, playlist execution/navigation button

questionable mids; useless mic for calls; tiny ambiguous volume buttons; somewhat clumsy bt connectivity

Geat product


These are great. I use them with my phone (iPhone 4S) every single day at work. They last for 2-3 days with 8 hours of usage per day no problem. I would recommend these to anyone, and they are very confortable as I do not prefer earbuds or on-ear...

Does not always connect, sound choppy


I bought that set because it was the best wireless set available and was willing to pay premium for a good brand. What a disappointement. Most of the times it does not connect. If I sit next to the computer and when it connnects it is nice sound.

Good sound quality when it works

Difficult to connect, works on some systems and not on others, expensive

Not Compatible with Win 7


Maybe some day there will be a stereo headset that can pair with a win7 machine, but not this one

great concept, does not perform well

Does not work with Win 7 ; Do not purchase if you intend to use this device with Win 7
