The wireless headphones of the Japanese company Sony , called Sony Stereo Bluetooth Headset ( SBH80 ), were officially presented at the beginning of this year 2014 with an ergonomic design by flag. We are facing headphones designed for comfort and intended for everyday use , as they have a neck support that allows the headphones to always be carried on top without turning out to be a nuisance even when we are not using them.
We have had the opportunity to test the Sony Stereo Bluetooth Headset ( SBH80 ), and in this article we are going to take a look at each and every feature of this product to try to determine what are its strengths and what are its weak points. Remember that we are facing a product that can already be purchased in Spain for an approximate price of 110 euros .
The first thing we should know about the Sony Stereo Bluetooth Headset ( SBH80 ) is that we are facing wireless headphones that connect through Bluetooth ( Bluetooth 3.0 technology , compatible with NFC ) with the device through which we want to play music. Battery incorporating these headphones have a capacity of 115 mAh , which translates into a range of about eight hours of music playback uninterrupted. If we connect these headphones with a mobile such as -for example- the Sony Xperia Z2 ,the phone itself will indicate the remaining autonomy of the headphones at the time we connect to them. The headphones are charged through a USB-microUSB cable built into the Sony Stereo Bluetooth Headset ( SBH80 ) packaging .
Regarding its design , the Sony Stereo Bluetooth Headset ( SBH80 ) incorporate a support that is placed on the neck, leaving the headphones in a very accessible position so that we can place them comfortably in the ear. The whole set of headphones weighs 18.5 grams , which translates into a lightness that does not cause any discomfort when wearing the headphones on the neck for several hours at a time. The headphones also incorporate a control that allows us to regulate music playback (jump from one song to another, raise or lower the volume), as well as allowing us toanswer the incoming calls we receive on our mobile. The whole set is resistant to splashing water (not submersible, at least according to the official technical specifications), so in principle we should not worry if a rain surprises us while we have these headphones placed on our neck.
And regarding the sound quality of the Sony Stereo Bluetooth Headset ( SBH80 ), one of the most important specifications of this type of product, we can affirm that the music reproduction offers a clean and clear sound similar to what we could expect from a mid-range headphones connected by cable .
In short, the Sony Stereo Bluetooth Headset ( SBH80 ) is a headset primarily intended for people who prioritize comfort when using headphones to play music. They are ideal headphones for everyday use (for walking , for public transport , for home , etc.), while if we want to use them for a different context (see for sports, for example) it is best to look at others headphone models intended exclusively for this purpose. The Sony Stereo Bluetooth Headset ( SBH80 ) can be purchased in Spainfor an approximate price of 110 euros .
