Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 Bluetooth headset

 

Though Bluetooth has been a part of the cell phone world for a few years now, it's only been in the least few months that stereo Bluetooth has become a common feature in many handsets. It's a welcome change, to say the least, particularly in phones...

The easy-to-use Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 offers superior sound quality and an admirable feature set.

The Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970's wearing style is a bit clunky. Also, the multi-device function could perform better.

Despite some design and performance complaints the Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 delivers solid sound quality and generous features.

Clean sound, a snug fit, and a useful LCD display make these earbuds a great buy.

Review: Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 Stereo Bluetooth Headphones

 

I travel a lot, so I like to have my music without having to carry around another device (i.e. iPod or MP3 player) to listen to it. This is

Can be used in any situation, including exercising, Solid build, Good sound quality, Comfortable to wear, Advanced call management controls, Supports pairing with multiple devices at the same time, Includes a small plastic carrying case

Poor sound quality on other end of call in windy conditions, Does not include mega bass or equalizer features, Does not support USB charging

The actual unit hangs on your neck and rests on your chest. It then has ear buds (with 3 different sizes to choose from) that include a microphone that hangs down just below your ear so you will never miss a phone a call while using it

Review: Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970

 

We reviewed Sony Ericsson's HBH-DS970 A2DP stereo headphones as part of our roundup review on Bluetooth stereo devices.

Consumer review by:

"The cables fall apart and warranty does not cover it!"

 

Never will buy another Sony Ericsson product if my life depended on it. Support terrible, warranty is none existant and when the product falls apart in two weeks the product definitely is garbage. I would recommend any other product about Sony Ericsson.

None that any one could now sell me on!

The cables fall apart and tech support claims it is user damage. Yet it happened only two weeks after receiving the product. Then after trying to work the maze of different support numbers and support personnel, I find out they blame it on user damage.

Great sound, no nonsense bluetooth cans

 

No matter what type of music you listen to, the headphones deliver a clean all round sound. i've had them for about 6 months now and i can't fail them. I can leave my phone on charge at the end of my bed and listen to my music wirelessly and also...

They deliver a richer deeper sound that you don't find in some cheaper headphones. also turn them on, when your phones' b-tooth is on and the connect automatically

if like me you commute on a daily basis you find yourself charging them every night. and if you forget to do so and realise it in the morning....you have to make do with your old wired ones. (bah!)
