Sony DR-BT20NX

 

Scrapheap Challenge” was the phrase that sprang to mind when we first clapped eyes on the Sony DR-BT20NX Bluetooth headphones. However, pairing up to a phone or Bluetooth MP3 player soon changed our minds… even if it does look like this was made in the...

Long battery life. Clear sound quality at high volume

Looks aren't everything in life, the Sony DR-BT20NXs will testify to that.

The Sony DR-BT20NX are Bluetooth 2.0 earphones with AVRCP remote control and A2DP stereo sound. They have a battery life of up to 11 hours and weigh just 37g. The good Why spend money on a Borg-style Bluetooth headset for your phone when you can enjoy...

A classy choice if you listen to a lot of tunes from your phone, but less of a bargain for anyone who just wants the smallest music player around – or if your handset isn’t AVCRP and A2DP compatible. Sony DR-BT20NX is tagged with Sony DR-BT20NX,...

Sony DRBT20NX Wireless Stereo headset

 

The folks at Sony have discovered a new religion and its name is Bluetooth.

Consumer review by:

Sony DR BT100CX/SLV (headset)

 

Worth every penny and confortable and above all its the ONLY bluetooth out there that is a IN-EAR with a mini-cord for flexability....U GOTTA LUV DAT!!!!

Has everything ; 1. Bass ; 2. Great Sound ; 3. Not TOO Loud ; 4. Volume toggle

The only reason keeping me from giving it 5 STARS ; It lacks the capaability to toggle between tracks............which means no back/next function for iPhone users......which SONY should really look to fix or update

First BT stereo headset that actually works

 

I've been trying for about 4 years to find a quality BT stereo headset that I can use at the gym, and still sound comprehensible during a telephone call. I've used Motorola, Backbeat (Altec Lansing) JVC, and this Sony model seems the best of the bunch....

Size/form factor, in-ear but not uncomfortable, good battery life, call quality is good too. Clip-on receiver still has the "wired" look which may bother some, but overall a good, quality unit

I'm stuck in phone mode, that reduces the sound quality, and the literature is difficult to comprehend as to how to get back to A2DP mode, frustrating. If this were fixed, it'd be a five star product

Consumer review by:

Amazing unit for what it was required for!

 

The only major problem I have with this product is that I'm not a big fan of earbuds to begin with and these aren't so comfortable that you don't notice them. Also when I'm sweating (while cutting the lawn) they tend to slip out a bit. If you have good...

Compatability (used on two different cell phones, different manufacturers) ; Sound Quality ; Battery Life ; BT Headset Usability (actually works well for phone conversations)

Not a huge fan of earbuds to begin with but these are not terrible

I was very surprised at the great sound quality

 

The skip and volume control works perfectly with my Palm Pre. I did not expect the sound quality to be so good! Excellent definition and bass reproduction. Variety of earbud sizes included.

Paired easily with my Palm Pre

I paid too much for these at an airport shop

Consumer review by:

Good price,excellent sound, great phone headset.

 

Excellent sound for the money. There is an overall good balance from low to high. The highs are there without being overly bright. The bass is there all the way down to thundering bass. Great definition in sound. I own Shure 420 earbuds and these Sony...

Great sound. pairs easily with the Samsung i910. Good price. No microphone effect

Some report that the forward and back control does not work with the iPhone due to a deficiency on Apple's end
