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...

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

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

Superior sound quality ; Easy to use ; Supports a range of Bluetooth profiles

Wearing style is a bit clunky ; Sometimes refused to enter synchronisation mode

Pairing/ease of use It took us longer than most headsets to get the HBH-DS970s to pair, as it often refused to enter synchronisation mode. Once we'd paired successfully, audio quality was good, and the relatively small number of controls made music...

Review of Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 stereo Bluetooth headset

 

Sony Ericsson has always been much interested in Bluetooth headsets production " in fact the company is one of the leading manufacturers of such gadgets. So it is not a secret why its first music stereo Bluetooth headset HBH-DS970 has attracted so much...

Taking account of how poor this segment is, Sony Ericsson DS970 doesn't have any credible competitors. Having the price of 90-100 Euros the headset is a bit cheaper than Nokia HS-12W (105-115 Euro). However Nokia product's strengths are metal casing...

"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.
