They fall off my head and never feel comfortable.
M. Nolan
Since then, it seems the bluetooth headphones have been getting better and better, and these Sony headphones are the best yet.
Michael Hatmaker
All of the controls work as labeled and it controls my iPod Touch from the controls on the headset with no problems.

I am by no means an audiophile, but I was very impressed with these headphone from Sony. As others have said the Bass is by no means deep, but it is acceptable for headphones. Music listening was a joy with these as I was able to move around my house and still be connected (Isn't Bluetooth great). My main reason for getting them was to listen to movies and TV on my desktop and laptop, the pairing was a cinch with both of my computers. The sound quality was very good for both movies and TV, there was also no lag that I noticed between the headphone sound and the actors lips (sometimes happens with wireless things). The fit of these headphones was perfect for my head, they fit snugly but not too tight, they stayed put with movement (Standing, walking, head bobbing to music). Overall I am very happy with these Sony Bluetooth Headphones, I would recommend these to anyone looking for a nice low cost wireless alternative for use with a PC.

Just got these yesterday. I thought sound quality was average and a notch lower than the Samsung SBH170 bluetooth headphones I also have. Range was excellent, crystal clear and no skipping when you're in range. I'm going to use this primarily with my computer and Nokia 5800 when at home. These are definitely not suited for use at the gym or in the train. I also tried out the Sony DR-BT22 and thought sound quality of the BT101 was a tad better. Also, the BT22 was flimsy and I found the fit a little uncomfortable. Now, I have a large head and that's probably the reason why I found the BT101 pretty comfortable. Yes, the plastics aren't the best, but a definite improvement over the BT22.
Annoyances: No wall charger, charges via a mini-usb cable. You would have to be extremely lucky if you're going to throw these into a travel bag and find them undamaged when you open the bag up.
I'm going to keep these since I couldn't find a better pair of headphones at this price. Oh, If you don't mind spending twice the money on a pair, Get the Samsung SBH600.

I wasn't sure about these, but bought a pair because of the relatively long battery life as far as bluetooth headsets go and the convenience of having no wires to mess with at all. There are some good points, but, unfortunately, they are overwhelmed by all the drawbacks, especially their loose fit. Here are my thoughts:

- Sound quality is right where I expected for the price. They aren't audiophile phones by any means, but they are a significant step up from the cheapy phones that come with MP3 players and the like. I tried some jazz, big band, vocals, brass ensembles, organ, piano, and orchestral music on them. Everything sounded just great, not phenomenal, but very good and clear overall with good balance between bass, mids, and highs.
- Excellent streaming bluetooth music quality. I noticed absolutely no difference in music quality between this set with streamed music over the bluetooth connection and a wired set with similar sound quality.
- Excellent reception range. With my MP3 player in one room and me down the hall with two closed doors in between us, the headset still kept pumping out the tunes with no static or signal loss. I couldn't get far enough away from the source in my little condo to get it to drop out or even skip. Pretty impressive.
- Nice control layout. The play/pause/skip, volume, and call answer buttons are all very easy to access. The one problem with the button layout is that the pairing button is behind the headband, so you can't really get to it while you are wearing the headset. That's not too big of a deal though, because you only need that button for the initial pairing. At least it has a dedicated pairing button so you don't have to remember some odd combination of other controls to get it into pairing mode.

I got these when promised and used them ASAP, and I've got to say that they are the best bluetooth product I now own! I also own to Motorolas and I have tried the Samsung SBH500 Stereo Bluetooth Headset, and these fit better but the sound quality on the music side is a little behind the Samsungs! It may just may be my Nokia phone, but I doubt it. Overall, my opinion of the Sony DRBT101 is great! And I would recommend the Sonys for anybody who has a head slightly larger than a teenager, because the main reason I purchased the Sonys, was the fact that the Samsungs would not fit, and were not adjustible! The Sonys are a better fit all the way around, in size and price.

I've had these for a couple of months now, and can't be happier with them.

Durability/Quality: I saw other reviews complaining of hypothetical flimsiness - they are light, but don't seem to me flimsy or at risk of breaking in any way. (would you *want* a heavier pair of headphones hanging on your ears? light is good)

Sound: perfectly adequate. Very good for the price, weight, and battery life of the headset.

Range: I can go 20 feet and around walls/stairs and keep a good signal.

Battery life: I frequently use these for 9 hours at a time on a single charge. They've never gone dead yet, so I haven't even discovered the max battery life.

Use as a Phone: sound quality from the built-in microphone is surprisingly good, and answering calls is easy to do.

Ergonomics/Usability: I was surprised, but all of the controls are easy to use and to distinguish from one another, purely by feel, using your right hand. The headset has the following controls: play, pause, next track, previous track, volume up, volume down, answer/hang-up call.

Charger convenience: mini-USB for charging is very convenient, given that most smartphones these days use USB, so you can use most computers or phone chargers to charge the headset. Micro-usb would have been better (then you could use even the same cable as your phone charger), but mini-USB is still good.
