Having never used Bluetooth headphones before it felt a bit weird at first having no wire running to my phone but I soon got used to the concept and now, I must say, I prefer things this way.
The Sony Smart Headset Pro offers much more than just an average set of Bluetooth headphones. It has a whole host of features. The combination of these rolled into one small and portable package is a great prospect.
Features of the Sony Smart Headset Pro:
- Bluetooth wireless headset with stereo in-ear headphones
- Make and receive calls
- See song titles
- Read text messages
- Listen to FM radio
- MicroSD card slot
- Clip to attach with your clothes
- Use your own 3.5mm headphones
In terms of build quality I wasn’t disappointed. The ear buds were of my favorite type. Soft, thin, and made from high quality rubber. The wire that connects them to the main device are also made from what feels like rubber and at first they felt a bit strange but once again I grew to like them.
The one feature I missed when unboxing the Sony Smart Headset Pro was the LED screen. It was hidden under a sticker and I did not spot it at all.
The screen is where you choose which music option you are going to use, plus it is very important for setting up new connections and reading SMS. The media controls allow you to scroll between the on-screen options and the Sony Smart Headset Pro is capable of Bluetooth pairing with two devices, so I had it set up for my BlackBerry and my laptop.
Android users can enjoy further features of the device. They can call directly via the device’s recent calls list and can even use voice commands.
In terms of the most important thing: the sound, this device is absolutely fantastic! You get a premium sound experience. However, the device does not have any sound altering controls of its own such as an equalizer but your phone should have that control anyway.
The device comes with a 2GB MicroSD card but those who need lots of storage can take that up to the maximum limit of 32GB which should be very satisfactory.
IN THE BOX:
- Sony Smart Headset Pro
- 2GB MicroSD card
- USB cable
- Micro-USB charger
- Different sized earbuds
- Warranty book and User Manuals
You can get your Sony Smart Headset Pro directly from Sony’s website for a price of $149.99 or £78.00
This latest device from Sony is a great headset and a great alternative to regular headphones. For some the prices may be a disadvantage but after reviewing this fantastic little device, I’d say it is worth my money.
