Sony SBH80 Stereo Bluetooth Headset

Product information

Take calls and listen to music in stereo sound with the Sony SBH80 Stereo Bluetooth Headset. Designed for all day use, this discreet headset suits any style of clothing and can be worn at work, home, indoors and outdoors.

Adapting to you
SBH80 is designed to be worn on the neck and has been perfectly balanced for comfort. It features two ultra-thin smart-memory metal strips that rest lightly on your shoulders and adapts to your body, so you'll barely know its there.

Stunning Sound
High definition micro dynamic drivers provide clarity and frequency accuracy for excellent in-ear audio. Double-layer housings in high-strength magnesium ensure crystal clear mid to high range sound and overall rich audio, while the material and shape of the ear buds have been constructed for maximum background noise cancelling. With aptX audio enhancement technology, music through the SBH80 sounds superb, delivered with pure, deep bass and clean, clear highs.

The SBH80 is HD Voice, or wideband audio, ready. HD Voice lets the person you're calling hear your voice as naturally as it sounds in real life, while fading or cutting background noises and making it easy to recognise the sound of the speaker. Double microphones ensure that your voice is clear, no matter which way you turn.

Smartphone Integration
You can pair the SBH80 with your smartphone using Bluetooth or NFC, and can even connect to two devices simultaneously using Bluetooth Multipoint. When a call comes in, a discreet vibration alert occurs in the main unit and you can answer with the controls on the headset. The controls can also be used with the music player on your phone to play, pause, skip tracks and alter the volume.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Redefining my experience of bluetooth headphones I decided it was time to cut the cord and try some bluetooth headphones for my iPhone. When walking I often find cords tug or become entangled in my jacket, worse still the cords end up in a knot or they fall out of my ears. As an audiophile I am fussy about sound quality and usually listen at home to AKG 702 reference monitor headphones. I prefer a flat response, plenty of detail, precise sound stage and imaging, tight but deep and controlled bass (not booming or overblown), you get the picture. Whilst the apple earbuds provided with their devices are pretty good, I also didn't expect to find a bluetooth set that would at least be as good (given the compression and limitations of bluetooth) so my expectations were average. After countless review reading and checking out forums etc I narrowed my choice to several, and decided as I wasn't able to hear them before purchasing to keep to a budget of below £100. Taking into account John Lewis's exemplary customer service, 2 year warranty, returns policy and price match with a competitor saving me almost a third off the price, I decided to take a chance with the SBH80's. And I'm so glad I did! The soundstage, detail, quality and design of these phones are incredible. The lightness of the earbuds means you quickly forget you are wearing them, I love the neckband which houses the battery and includes a vibration motor to alert you to incoming phone calls. Also the volume and track controls are separated between the left and right arms, as are 2 separate mics for improving call quality. Although these won't go up to ear deafening levels, volume is sufficient enough for most and never distorts. Be sure to try all the ear plugs in order to get a good fit, at which point the sound balances itself up perfectly with a deep and warm but not over emphasised bass, crisp and detailed midrange, incredible soundstage and presence, excellent dynamic range (for bluetooth especially), clean and precise treble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very very good I've tried a few different Bluetooth headphones.. And these are the only ones that seem to have the magic mix of sound quality., bass and volume. The batery is good.. And they really block out the sound. The only issue is that they are not great to take a phone call with, even though they do have a microphone for this facility.. I find it pretty unstable in practice. As headphones they are great.. 03 March 2015
