Sony DR BT21G

 

Portable wireless headphones , which almost exclusively use Bluetooth (BT) technology, are the latest trend in headphones. And the latest pair to come across the CNET editorial desk is the Sony DR-BT21G. These 'phones use A2DP to convey stereo sound,...

The Sony DR-BT21G headphones are lightweight and comfortable, and they act as a headset for compatible cell phones as well as offer stereo sound for music. Audio quality is passable for wireless headphones, and bass response is good.

There's no Bluetooth transmitter included in the DR-BT21G package, and the headphones give off a very noticeable background hiss that interferes with quiet songs. Call quality is only so-so.

The Sony DR-BT21G is a suitable stereo Bluetooth headset for listening to tunes at the gym and for accepting brief calls, but it's no replacement for quality wired headphones and a good BT headset.

amazing headphones, no wires, works amazing, all the buttons on the earphones are easily accessible, very nice. I have had these headphones almost a year now, they are still working like brand new. one of my best investments!

LOUD! comfortable, long battery life, connect seamlessly, no screwing around with bluetooth crap, and is compatible with almost everything, i love them

after wearing them for like 10 hours they become uncomfortable but you get used to it i guess

Good Design And Work Well

 

These are very nice for $69.00 @ Circuit City. I was surprised at the sound quality. No, they don't match my Shure SP350's ...they are very, very comfortable for me (I have big ears). They should come with a case! I did find that some cellphones are...

Decent sound quality, very comfy, nice control locations.....low noise

None yet...not too sure about plastic, seems very breakable...we'll see

Impressed!!!

 

What can I say, music from any Sony devices is pretty good. Bundled with all the functions on this device, I guess there's nothing much to regret owning one if you fancy good music on the go or in the gym.

Light; superb sound quality; more play controls (FF/RR) then my previous DR-BT10CX not to mention better call quality; worth the price, definately

Sony could improve on the design though, the poited end feels rather unfomfortable when it brushes against your neck. But i guess when its placed properly, this isnt much of a problem
