Sony Ericsson Stereo Bluetooth Headset HBH-DS970

 

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

Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970

 

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...

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...
