Samsung HS3000 Stereo Bluetooth Headset Review

Within a few months, Samsung's line of accessories for mobile phones will be updated, not only for Bluetooth headsets, but also for other peripherals. In the review of accessories for Samsung Galaxy S II, I mentioned a couple of universal cases, headphones with a remote control for Android devices, and there will be other things.

There will be a lot of interesting things, but I'll start with the Samsung HS3000, a stereo headset with many features.

Design, construction

The packaging is traditional for Samsung, a transparent plastic box, inside a cardboard box with all sorts of things, the instructions are extremely clear, everything is thoroughly chewed. The dimensions of the headset are small, smaller than a lighter, it weighs 13.2 grams. Dark gray plastic, tight clothespin holds the accessory well on clothes. In the middle, the plastic is black, a sort of classic sandwich. On the top are a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone. Headphones in the kit have long been known to everyone who uses Samsung phones, inexpensive "plugs" are quite comfortable, but I would recommend replacing them with a more advanced model.

The appearance is quite normal, the assembly is good, it is unlikely that something will happen to the coating even with active use.

Management

On the front there is an answer and end call button, with its help you switch between lines or activate voice dialing. On one of the ends there are three playback control buttons, on the other - a sliding power switch, a volume rocker, and a Mode button. With it, you can enable or disable voice commands, the ability to use with two phones at the same time, activate the Sound Alive sound preset. All buttons are quite large, you get used to it easily. When working with iPhone 4, fast-forwarding within a track is supported, however, this happens very slowly, it is easier to find the desired fragment directly on the phone.

It's not entirely clear why it was necessary to make voice commands disabled - of course, I understand that some users can be annoyed by a female voice, but for most such functionality will seem normal. There is no display here, and the voice helps me personally to find out how long the battery will last, whether the multi-point is turned on or not, whether the second device is connected and other information.

Next to the answer button there is a miniature light indicator, it is not annoying, and this is the main thing.

Food

At the end, under the plug, there is a microUSB connector, a regular network charger is included, it's nice - you can use it with phones and other equipment. Claimed battery life is seven hours of talk time, six hours of music playback, one hundred and seventy hours of standby time. Charging time is about an hour and a half. In fact, the headset played music for about five and a half hours. Not bad for a compact stereo headset, but I would like more.

Phone connection, sound quality

I tested the iPhone 4 and BlackBerry 9780 headsets, but it was not possible to connect both at the same time - probably, the matter is in the features of the devices themselves, everything should work out with “normal” phones (knowledgeable people tried). The sound quality will very much depend on the headphones used, when I connected a simple Sony model to the HS3000, everything changed dramatically in https:/ /cars45.co.ke/listing/mercedes-benz/clk better. Of the interesting features, I note that the Bluetooth 3.0 profile, the next generation, is used here, and, in theory, the best result can be achieved with some Samsung Galaxy S II. But even with the iPhone 4, I found the sound picture quite interesting. Most importantly, there are no these shy typically “bluetooth” signs - when there is some kind of rustling somewhere in the background or interference periodically erupts. Normal sound. Moreover, in addition to Bluetooth 3.0, there is also aptX codec, let's see what official sources say about it:

«May 24, 2011 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- CSR plc has announced that the new Samsung HS3000 Bluetooth Stereo headset features its aptX high-fidelity audio compression technology.

According to CSR, this has enabled Samsung to create a Bluetooth headset offering wireless stereo audio quality that is virtually indistinguishable from that of wired stereo audio devices.

"Samsung Electronics is clearly enthusiastic about aptX technology in the high-volume consumer electronics marketplace, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with them as they adopt our aptX technology across a broad range of mobile handsets, feature phones, smartphones, tablets and headset products. By adopting aptX technology across their product lines, Samsung is setting a new standard for wireless audio quality in the mobile entertainment ecosystem," added Murray.

CSR's aptX technology uses advanced ADPCM principles to squeeze the entire 10Hz 22kHz high-fidelity audio frequency range neatly within the constrained bandwidth of Bluetooth transmission standards. It delivers audio reproduction with 92dB dynamic range, and has low latency that avoids lip-sync issues. When incorporated in Bluetooth A2DP stereo products like the Samsung HS3000, the aptX audio codec enables source material to be delivered transparently over the Bluetooth link, whether it is stored uncompressed on the source device or uses an alternative compression format such as MP3, AAC or FLAC».

Вот видите, как интересно - только поэтому стоит брать! Но вот нужно было добавить в комплект наушники получше, чтобы покупатели лучше оценили возможности устройства.

Speech quality is highly dependent on how close you hold the microphone to your mouth. The closer the better. If you speak where necessary, then the interlocutors do not complain and cannot understand that you are using a headset.

Conclusions

Sales of the device will begin very soon, the approximate price is one and a half thousand rubles. I did not like the included headphones, but this is perhaps the only nitpick. Good appearance, convenient control, multipoint, good sound quality, normal battery life. If you connect your headphones, the sound will become even better, it's worth doing. In short, I strongly recommend Samsung HS3000 for purchase and I want to note that the company is moving in the right direction - competitors, in fact, put an end to the development of Bluetooth accessories. Novelties do not offer something new, updates relate primarily to design. It's great, of course. But the year is 2011, and it would be great to see a breakthrough in the sound of wireless devices. And I think the company will be able to surprise us. I hope so.
