Overview of Wireless Stereo Headset Sony SBH-80




Wireless stereo headset from Sony – the device always unique, with its own “chips”, additional functionality, or “special” appearance. Is no exception, and a model with an index of SBH-80 – Headset with notes from the past and modern Japanese company content.

As soon as there is information on the output of such a headset from Sony – it’s just a distant memory woke product SonyEricsson: almost 6 years ago, then an alliance of companies offered the market a compact stereo, which consisted of only two earphone plugs and connecting cable, IS800. For its time it was good, and many even surprised. This year, the Japanese technology giant is trying to reinvent the format, although analogues of such a construction is now quite a lot.

Options Sony SBH-80 for this product is quite good – charging cable (even without the battery charger), a set of nozzles of different sizes for headphones and a considerable amount of “waste paper.” Packed everything in a quality box, looks pretty good. It should be noted that this represented only headset in black, although it would be interesting to see and interface with color solutions for smartphones shades. Weight 16 grams is almost imperceptible, this accessory very quickly get used to.

If the already mentioned precursor SBH-80, IS800, a link between the “ear” was a simple wire, the fresh product Sony has tried to minimize the weight of the headphones themselves, so all the technological refinements, including NFC for quick pairing with smartphones, and support for HD Voice codec aptX with battery 125 mAh, “put away” in a small unit that the operation of the headset will be located behind the neck of the user. Yes, in the same block is located, and a vibrate mode, if you receive a call or message comes in (it does not work with all smartphones), you hear a light behind the neck, but well perceptible and perceived “vzhzh-vzhzh” what exactly you will never miss a call even if the phone is in your bag or pocket winter jacket. Such is the peculiar version of «smart wear».

Connector for charging the headset is placed in the same place, under the so beloved by Sony stub. Stoke headset we decided not to, but when running, for example, the sweat just can not get on the contacts that are already pretty good.

However, the design features of the unit itself – is not particularly interesting, although the implementation and curious. Thought-out and turned the rest of your headset device, including management. Once the user has placed on his neck this headset on the left and right sides on the shoulders of the user go to two “branches”, which serve as a cable TV wire headphones, and as blocks buttons and location of microphones. On the left branch settled fast forward or rewind tracks, as well as key play / pause and, in fact, the left microphone.

Right “branch” gave shelter volume key button and accept / reject the call. The microphone is also available. Incidentally, the fear that the microphones are too far away from your mouth, it is not necessary – hearing, according to the interlocutors, is at a fairly high level, and, perhaps, only very much a strong wind can become an obstacle to conducting a conversation with SBH-80.

SBH80 03

As promised manufacturer, the headset on a single charge will last 9:00, and on standby … No, all those hundreds of hours – the numbers are interesting, but not very useful in real-world use. In reality, while the headset about two or three days, depending how the user calls and how long is the road from home to work or school and back. In any case, three hours of music and a couple of hours of calls per day for the SBH-80 – not a problem, and a couple of days in this mode will work out gadget.

SBH80 08

As for the “musical component,” that is, of course, is not a solution for fans of high-pitched sounds, but also shred bass, tops and more or less pronounced, there has been found. In the underground reserve volume may not be enough, but not too much – it’s the quality of the music depends. For everyday use enough of what this device can do.

SBH-80 received quite unusual position in the line of multifunction headsets Sony – so it was that more (in terms of “advanced” audience) rich opportunities SBH-50 / SBH-52, has a display and support for special software add-ons for, for example, the interaction with messengers, are among the headsets on the position “under” the hero of the text. A novelty, SBH-60 – and in general quite different in concept device, design overhead headphones. Is this justified? Probably yes, since this headset engineers did not need to fit into a tiny box displays, handlers of the most plug-ins and other “geek joy” – in the SBH-80 was a place only sound. Currently Sony SBH-80 will cost users about $ 4 000. Product from the Japanese company turned curious and feature-rich and good value for money, perhaps fulfills.
