HBH-IS800 Stereo Bluetooth Headset

 

The main attraction of the Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 headphones is their teensy size. Weighing less than half an ounce, the headphones sport an earbud-style design with a slender strand of cable connecting the two buds. Such luxury and convenience don't...

Compact and very light Solid music and call quality

Very expensive Unit lacks volume controls and track skipping

If you're willing to sacrifice some phone and music controls for an ultrasmall headset with dependable audio quality--and the hefty price tag is no barrier--the Sony Ericsson package has got the goods

Sony Ericsson Wireless Stereo Headphone (Black)

 

As an increasing number of mobile phones incorporate a music player into their features, more and more stereo Bluetooth headphones are unleashed onto the market. The audio quality offered is still not on par with wired models, but the headsets offer...

The Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 headphones are ultracompact and let you cut the cord from your A2DP-compatible music phone. The earbuds offer deep bass and generally solid sound quality, and the package includes a storage box

The Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 headphones may not fit all users well, they're pricey, and the sound quality is not on par with wired models

The solid-sounding Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 Wireless Stereo Headphones are an excellent option for anyone looking for the very smallest Bluetooth headset money can buy to use with an A2DP-compatible music phone or MP3 player.

Weighing less than 12g, the Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 headphones sport an earbud-style design with a slender strand of cable connecting the two buds.

If you're willing to sacrifice some phone and music controls for an ultrasmall headset with dependable audio quality - and the hefty price tag is no barrier - the Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 package has got the goods.

Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 Wireless Headphones Review

 

Price wise the cheapest I found them was £72.95 which is a little on the steep side for a set of headphones but if I had the money to spend then I would 100% get myself a set of these (or Sony Ericsson could just give me them)

almost not even there

 

I'm a bluetooth headphone nut. no, you won't get the quality sound as you would from a wired set and if you didn't realize that then bluetooth isn't for you. I have had Jaybirds, Plantronics, Motorola, Sony and Nokia. these are by far the best ones for...

light weight, decent sound

speaker for call use is a little loud

Consumer review by:

Great product for use with mobiles - not Windows!

 

I really love this unit with my mobile, streaming youtube or music with the freedom to have my hands free and roam without being restricted by a cable. It work flawlessly compared to some other top notch bluetooth products I've had in the past. I just...

Compact and light, easy to use, any headphones with a 3.5mm jack will fit and reasonable battery life

Will not connect to your PC without extensive internet search - even then, there may be issues as windows does not support 3rd party bluetooth devices - the only thing stopping me giving this an "Excellent" rating

Worst product ever - should not be on the market

 

I will never buy another Sony Ericsson product again. I bought one of these last fall and was happy enough with it that we bought another in the household for Christmas. The Christmas present was dead out of the box. The retailer referred us to...

Tiny form factor ; Decent sound

It doesn't work in real life ; Abysmal customer service
