I bought these headphones looking for something that could please my need for quality sound while, at the same time, offering a wireless option at a somewhat affordable price (I paid $100 even for mine). Simply put, the Samsung SBH600 sastisfies... in most cases.

I did a lot of research on Bluetooth Headphones before I decided to purchase, and it pretty much came down to the Altec Lansing Backbeat 903 or the SBH600 in order to stay within my budget. After reading several reviews, I concluded that the audio quality of the SBH600 was most likely superior.

Quality and Comfort:

For as light weight as they are, these bad boys are incredibly durable. The plastic is definitely of high quality. The joints swivle back and forth in smooth motion. The top cushion and ear cushioning is quite comfortable. However, as is my experience with every pair of on-ear headphones, after about an hour of use, my ears are somewhat sore. Needless to say, however, you won't be breaking these things anytime soon.

Setup:

Setup with my BlackBerry Storm was simple. As soon as I turned the headphones on, it sought out a Bluetooth device. Note: you have to put in a 4 digit verification pin upon finding the device, so if your MP3 player / phone does not allow you to do this, do not bother purchasing them.

Call Quality:

Thusfar, I haven't had any problems with call quality, although I will admit that I am seldom in loud areas (i.e.: Airports, train stations, etc#, so you may want to do some more research on this. Still, even if the call quality was bad, I would most likely keep these, because my whole purpose in buying them was to have a wireless pair headphones #I've broken way too many wires in my day to justify buying another pair of wired headphones#.

Music Playback Quality:

Playback quality is really really good...I stop short of excellent because there are a few exceptions. The bass is beyond what I was hoping for. The headphones produce deep, long, and rich tones in the bass, much better than any headphones I've ever used. If you purchase these for bass, you will NOT be dissapointed #seriously, it's pretty good#. Vocals are also very clear. Not muffled in the least. From low tones to high tones, it's all very clear and easily discernable from start to finish.

Piano sounds great, as does accoustic guitar. Rap / Hip Hop comes through throbbing and chiming, although the compression can sound somewhat distorted at times #the same can be said for compression heavy trance, although the vast majority of my Tiesto sounds amazing on these). Much to my dissapointment, it is rock music where these babies tend lack. While the guitar is clean and crisp, compression instruments, tamberines, and other distort

This is a nice pair of bluetooth headphones as far as sound goes. the connectivity is great and finds my phone with no problem. I've noticed that the range sometimes is better than advertised as I have ventured away from phone (farther that the specified limit) with no problems. The controls are easy to use once you've gotten use to them. I'm still trying to figure out one button on there that calls back the last number dialed. That annoys me. My only real probelm with this headset is that if it is not "just right" on your ears, it's going to hurt a little. OK...a lot. The headset loosens up just a little but enough to give any relief on those ears.

I have had several different BT headphones, both mono AND stereo, and, without a doubt, these are the BEST SOUNDING BT headphones on the market!
They are constructed very solidly; you wont be breaking these guys if you drop them!

They are not the type you would wear in the car all day, since they really seal your ears from the outside sounds, but, if you work from home, or, if you aren't the one driving in the car, then you will love these.
For the car, I use a Plantronics 975, which is the best "mono" bt headset out there now; you just can't listen to music through them..

I have the Samsungs' paired to 2 phones at once, without any problem...Of course, with an IPHONE 3GS, the advanced functions, like skip, and rewind do not work, but its not the headphones fault; the Iphone, even with the 3.1 firmware still doesn't support these functions.
But you can pause music, you can voice dial, and you can control the volume from the headset.

The bass response, when you switch the dial to BASS, is top notch; not quite what you might get in a $300 pair of wired headphones, but pretty darn close.The sound quality blows away the Motorola S9HD, and the Jabra Halo, so don't waste your time with those if great sounding music is your main criteria; if you want something to wear all day in the car, I would recommend the Jabra Halo, since its so light, but the sound doesn't come close to these guys.

And, if you order them direct from Samsung, they are $79 bucks, including free shipping..There is even a coupon somewhere online, that has a 15% off offer, which would bring these bad boys down to about 67 dollars!

All in all, the best sounding, stereo bt headset out there now...

Here is my short and simple review.

The headphones work great as advertised, and seemed sturdy at first. But I'm a student and fairly active, going to the gym and putting these headphones in backpacks, various transporting etc.

Pros: Does everything advertised, worked great, sound quality was amazing as was bluetooth, also very comfortable and good for long poker sessions or gym (although a little big).

Cons: Broke apart fairly easily, wish I had bought a cheaper rugged similar pair, or just been more careful.

The headphones have excellent sound quality with my phone and iPad. The noise cancellation works well also. Shipping was fast

These headphones broke right after the year warranty. One of the ear pieces fell off of the headband and now dangles from a wire. It seems a screw which held the plastic part of the headband tight (to keep the ear piece in tact) has loosened and will not tighten again. I called Samsung twice. The first time, they said someone would call me back, but they did not. The second time a very polite man told me that there was nothing they could do. Even though these headphones were over $100, they have broken. I use them mildly - meaning I do not abuse them and the part that is broken is clearly not something that I did --- it is obviously faulty hardware, yet Samsung will not fix, replace or exchange this item.

In general, my advice is definitely don't buy these headphones, but in general, don't buy anything SAMSUNG, unless you are OK with throwing it away after a year.

Sadly ...

This bluetooth head set with the addition of the 3.5mm connection has exceptionally great sound and Amazon's price was unbeatable. The only thing I could think of bad to say about it is that Samsung discontinued this model. I would buy another if I could for a spare.

My wife gave me this product for Christmas. I have had to return them twice because of broken head pieces. I am still waiting for them to send back the second set. They break where the ear piece connects to the head strap. Stay away from this product unless you like waiting for a new set from Samsung.

You can buy this same headset from the Samsung website for $79.99
So why would I pay $104 here? No brainer
