Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 stereo Bluetooth headset review

Sony Ericsson has always had a strong commitment to producing Bluetooth headsets, and the company is one of the strongest developers of such devices. It's no secret that this is why the first stereo Bluetooth music headset, the HBH-DS970, has attracted increased consumer attention. There are not so many headsets with similar functionality on the market as a whole, this product became the first mass-produced one. The headset was created to support primarily the company's music solutions, so it got the Walkman badge on the case. I will make a reservation that it can be used with any company phone equipped with Bluetooth, and used to listen to music - with a device that has an A2DP profile. Sony Ericsson's portfolio is the majority of them today, we tested the headset with Sony Ericsson M600, as well as Sony Ericsson W850i, Sony Ericsson K800i. The choice of products is not accidental, they all support the A2DP profile and formally have similar Bluetooth specifications. In reality, there are obvious differences in the organization of Bluetooth between Symbian smartphones and conventional devices.

The headset involuntarily resembles the latest generation of Walkman mp3 players, it is made in a similar design. The combination of black and orange is familiar and does not cause rejection. The plastic is glossy, there are traces of hands on it, but you don’t pay much attention to them. The weight of the headset is 27 grams, which is not much considering the way it is worn. The headset is worn around the neck, the cord is woven, the wire itself is inscribed in it. Unfortunately, the headset's ears are not removable, you can't replace them with your own, there is no 3.5 mm jack on the case.

Headphones are made in the form of earplugs (somewhat reminiscent of the HPM-70), the set includes elastic bands for headphones of various sizes, this allows you to choose them according to the anatomy. Looking ahead, I want to note that the sound quality in the headphones is one of the best for such headsets, the sound is clear, the bass is well audible (not for all devices the situation is like this). Evaluating the headphones, we can say that they are on the level and fully justify belonging to the Walkman line. There are currently no similar products in terms of sound transmission quality (in the class of small headsets, some large products allow you to get the same sound). If we make a rough comparison, then the sound is slightly better than that in the HPM-70, the difference is almost imperceptible (we listened to the same compositions).

The pleasant moments include the fact that the length of the lace can be adjusted, that is, the distance to the headphones can be increased or decreased. On one of the headphones there is a call answer key, with its help you can dial the last number you called.

There is a one-line inverted display on the body of the headset, here you can see information about the caller, his name, if there is a corresponding entry in the phone book. When playing music, you see the name of the song, if it does not fit entirely, then the headset scrolls it on the screen.

This is where the differences between different devices begin: for example, the Sony Ericsson M600 perfectly transmits song titles to the headset, just like the Sony Ericsson W850i. While Sony Ericsson K800i refuses to do this (the melody playback icon appears and nothing more). Other differences include the extremely low sound volume in the Sony Ericsson M600i, there is no headroom, the volume is insufficient for most situations. At the same time, for other devices it is sometimes excessive, but there is no special margin here either. I will make a reservation that headsets with the first firmware versions can be quiet on all devices, you need to change the firmware.

The heterogeneous performance of the headset with different devices is due to differences in time to market. Not in all cases, the manufacturer managed to prepare the appropriate software on the phone side. The headset is fully supported by the Walkman family. If you have any doubts, then you should check the headset for performance.

There is a music key on the body (play, pause), with its help you can automatically activate the player in your phone and start listening (either the last song you listened to, or the full list of files). On the side there is a paired key for skipping songs, you can scroll through them. At the same time, the headset can't show the list of songs, yet the one-line display imposes its own limitations. There is no fast forward within the composition.

Volume control is also carried out by a separate key, with its help you can turn off the microphone on the headset during a call.

The interesting features of this product include the presence of various operating modes, there is a special switch (dot - dot, dot - to many). In the first mode, the phone is paired with a headset and only it is used (sound transmission in any form). In the second mode, you can pair up to 10 devices with the headset and only one will be used at a particular moment (the last one activated or the one from which the signal goes to the headset, for example, it can be a PC). The beauty of this solution is that you can listen to music from your PC, and when there is an incoming call, the playback will be interrupted, and the connection will go from your phone. The convenience of working with multiple devices cannot be underestimated, this is a unique feature of the DS970.

Charger connector https://cars45.com.gh/listing/mercedes-benz/e300/2006 The device is located on the case, standard charging is included with the headset. You just insert the charge with one of the antennae and that's it. The total battery charge time is about 2 hours. The headset is capable of providing up to 6-7 hours of listening to music, which is a good indicator. The battery level displayed on the screen does not work well: for example, the full charge is shown about 60 percent of the time, then there is a sharp decrease in the level and the headset turns off.

Using voice commands with a headset does not cause any problems (the Magic Word function does not work). When a ringtone is set on the phone, it is transferred to the headset, just like personal melodies for individual subscribers (does not work on all versions of software for Sony Ericsson K800i). If you are listening to music and there is an incoming call, playback stops and you hear a ringtone. After the end of the conversation, playback automatically resumes. When making outgoing calls, sometimes the headset does not resume playback, or there is no sound (but the headset shows that it is playing). You can get out of this position by jumping to the next track.

The headset is not friendly with BlueSolei on PC (the sound is not transmitted to it), we recommend using the Widcomm driver.

The full list of supported profiles is as follows:

  • Handsfree
  • Headset
  • AVDTP 1.0
  • AVCTP 1.0
  • GAVDP 1.0
  • A2DP 1.0
  • AVRCP 1.0

In hardware, the headset is built on a chip from TI - BRF6150.

Given the undersaturation of this market segment, the Sony Ericsson DS970 has no competitors as such. At a cost of 90-100 Euros, this headset is slightly cheaper than the Nokia HS-12W (105-115 Euros). On the side of the product from Nokia, there is a metal case, the presence of an FM radio built into the headset itself. But at the same time, the sound quality due to the headphones, which are also non-removable, is worse.The choice of the DS970 headset is justified for use primarily with the Walkman line of phones, here the compatibility of the headset and phones is maximum, and the number of possible problems is minimal. You can use the headset with Sony Ericsson K800i, but with a number of reservations (lack of song title, for example). Interestingly, the Sony Ericsson M600i is the only product that does not produce enough volume when playing music with this headset. For example, Sony Ericsson P990i/W950i don't have such problems. By the way, Sony Ericsson P990i is often bundled with this headset.

The verdict is simple. The headset turned out to be interesting, and the lack of direct competitors makes it justified for the purchase.
