In my case I purchased these headphones specifically for use with a desktop computer to use with skype and general music listening. The idea was to use these for 8 hours a day to listen to music and take 10-30 phone calls that come in on skype a day. This has worked great forever with plantronics wired headsets but I would like to be free of the wires.
What the specs and the other reviews I have seen don't point out is a very important design element in this headset, this headset doesn't support Multipoint. Which means The 903+ is essentially two discrete products in one. First there is a Mono Headset that provides mono sound through both ear pieces and has dual microphones. Second there is an excellent Stereo Headphone that has no Microphone function.
These two modes are completely separate. At any given time only the Headset function or the Headphone function can be active but not both. Therefore there is no way to combine the microphone and the stereo audio function. This has two implications: (1) You can't pair the headset with a phone; and the headphones with a separate physical media player at the same time. (2) Any device you connect can only actively be using either the headphone or the headset but not both at the same time. A single physical device would have to switch modes on the fly to use both.
On a cellphone with the latest bluetooth profiles these two modes will work great; you can listen to music in full stereo and when a call comes in the headphones mode shuts down and the headset function fires up.Read more ›
A new and neat feature is that, after you turn on this headset, a female voice announces/whispers to you the approximate operating time left so that you know when you may need to charge the headset. The 906 instead uses LED light pattern (blink 1, 2, or 3 times) to indicate approximate battery life.
update: the microphone volume seems to be too weak. you may want to get a traditional headset for making calls. The 906 doesn't have this problem (but picks up much more background noise than the 903+, which has great noise-cancelling feature).
For starters, the sound quality on these headphones is great. Music on these surprised and impressed me, and hearing people during phone calls is easy. The size, feel, and button use of these, though, are not something that I like. Below are some details.
- To me, music sounds full and engaging. I was very pleasantly surprised by the amount of bass - as well as the quality of it. They sound good and not just boomy. Music performance is the biggest plus to this headset, IMO, and they do a good job with it.
Phone Calls (Neutral)
- On phone calls, people's voices come through clearly. I have no trouble at all hearing people on these.
- When I spoke through these, my brother indicated that I sounded just like my other bluetooth headsets. So, no better, but no worse.
- It was weird for me, though, talking with both ears plugged by these. The ear pieces fit in and partially block the ear canal. So, great for music, but it's like talking with your fingers partially covering your ears. I got used to and it's not a big complaint, but I prefer talking with my single-ear headset.
- IMO, the behind-the-ear portions are big and not comfortable to wear with glasses. Some of you won't be bothered by them, but I'm rating them lower because I don't find them very comfortable.
- The buttons aren't easy to use. Perhaps they will be with more practice, but I'm not sure. Pushing some of the buttons isn't very easy because pushing them puts force on the ear piece in a direction that tends to move it off my ear.Read more ›
Ive had 3 wired headphones before this and after breaking 2 Sony in-ear bud headphones at $50 each, I figure its time for a wireless.
Ive been searching for bluetooth headphones to be used with my Blackberry Bold 9650 for months now. Ive been looking at the Sony IS800, Jaybird Freedom, and Plantronics Backbeat 903. (I was only look for in-ear headphones) Ill do a quick run down between these.
The Sony IS800 loooks like an excellent product, but for $100+ its hard to purchase them when its only features are Play/Pause and Answer Call. (BTW, Im still looking at purchasing them anyway because of the simple design) These are nothing more than a bluetooth in-ear bud headphone that lasts about 2-3 hours which is ok with me.
The Jaybird Freedom was my first pick but they no longer make them anymore and are very hard to find. I found them on ebay for $120+ and that was used. I will not buy a used item after it was in another persons ear. These headphones were great after reading specs and reviews. They were waterproof/sweatproof and had all the features wou would need. Play/pause, Skip/next, Answer Call/Disconnect, Volume.
The Plantronics Backbeat 903 was a good product and I purchased these from a local AT&T store for $100. I used them for about 2 weeks to try them out, but I was not to impressed with them and also I saw them on ebay and amazon at the time for about &70. The sound was OK on them only because it looks like they were designed to let you listen to music and hear whats going on in the outside world while you are outdoors. After using them at the gym and hearing alot of the TOUGH GUY STEROID users grunting with the ear phones on, I had to return them.Read more ›
