Sony Ericsson HBH-DS980 update

Posted: February 27, 2009 in Uncategorized

Since I switched back to using a WM phone – the Eten M800 – I’ve resorted to using my Nokia N78 as a media player due to the limitations of the business orientated Eten, which has a very mediocre music quality. This has meant using the HBH-DS980 bluetooth headphones a lot more due to its ability to connect to more than one device at a time. I pair it with the N78 (sim-less) for music purposes and then  with the M800 for phone purposes.


I’m happy to report, as a brief update, that the arrangement works really well. The music from the N78 comes through clearly and the remote controls on the headset allow me to skip through my music tracks and adjust volume as I like, all without affecting the connection to the M800. When a call comes through on my phone, the music playback from the N78 is paused to allow me to have the conversation; once I am finished, the music automatically starts again. Very, very convenient – it’s almost like having one device doing everything through the headset. I can even browse through my address book from the M800 while the music is playing and call the contacts accordingly.

As an added note (heh, heh), the music quality has also improved a fair bit since I put larger ear buds on the headset (swiped them from my CX300 set). A good seal definitely makes all the difference with in-ear headphones, as I now get a decent level of bass and a fuller sound overall.

All in all, I’ve only got happier with this headset.
