Consumer review by:

Used this headset for about a year and a half


I agree with the person who said it seems like you are going to break it when you attempt to plug it into the charger.

Nice fit (apparently I have a small head)

Sound quality and charger


Consumer review by:

Great headset (if you improvise)


I have had this headset for 1 year. I have large ears so bent the earhook to fit my ear by heating in in boiling water for a couple of minutes. This worked great. I also use a Jabra gel ear piece that fits over the speaker and it fits perfect in the...

long battery life, loud and clear

earhook has to be modified for larger ears

Great Bluetooth headset!


I've have my Sony Ericsson Akono HBH 608 headset for almost two weeks now. Paired with the Sony Ericsson Z525A.

Sound quality, light weight and easy to use

Could be a little shorter. Voice dialing

Consumer review by:

Good headset for long time users.


I have bought this headset to work with my computer for voice chat.

Not for big ears

Sound quality is nice. But not extra ordinary as expected from sony ericsson

Consumer review by:

random ringing in my ear drives me CRAZY!


This headset does not work well w/ my Sprint Samsung A920. Headset rings in my ear when no call coming in, sometimes every few minutes. It always rings when the v/m envelope icon appears/disappears from my phone's display, so leads me to conclude that...

sound quality, decent battery life

Difficult Device


I am always having to reset this device, and it does not always want to reset. Sometimes I have to wait days until it will reset. I really cannot wait until I can get a NEW more ergonomic device.

clear sound

uncomfortable, ALWAYS having to reset

Consumer review by:

Bloody Medieval Torture Device


I bought one from a friend of mine when I got my BT phone. This is not a headset you want to leave in your ear for long times. The problem here is the bit that sticks in your ear. With the over the ear hook in place, the speaker tends to dig into your...

decent sound and mic

Painful design

Consumer review by:

The loudest volume of all the headsets


Of all the headsets I've tried, this has by far the loudest earpiece volume. This is my favorite for desk use. I removed the ear hook and even without it, the headset still fits snugly in my ear. It's just easier to put in & out as I sit at my desk and...

volume, comfortable fit

size - too big to walk around with all day

Consumer review by:

very good head set


Comfortable and lightweight in ear. Easy to use.


none so far

Consumer review by:

Overall, good headset


I liked this headset but ultimatly I went with the Cardo Scala 500. The volume was weak and the button to answer is too small. It also hurt my ear. I had a little better luck with it in my left ear. Overall, its not bad, but I would recommend moving...

Looks nice, sound is OK

Volume, main button and earpiece
