I work in a fairly relaxed retail store, and so I wear this under my collar of my work shirt, and constantly put one or both ear pieces in and out when I have time between stocking/ordering/customers. Even though I push the buttons to change song, adjust volume, answer calls upwards of 50 times per day, they are still fairly crisp and haven't failed me. I was worried at first about the small wires leading to the buds from the main body, but they haven't show the slightly sign of wear and tear except a small twist and bend that has formed from me tucking them into my front pocket or between the buttons of my shirt when I need to put them out of the way.
I cycle to work and so I frequently sweat on the headset, but the rubber cover over the charging port has kept the port clean and uncorroded, and the finish as shown minimal wear.
The stereo microphones sound fine for calls and occasional use on groupchat apps and programs, and the "answer/end call" button has worked well with both my Android and my older Windows phone. Minimal wind noise while I'm cycling, and with the Windows phone you could even hold down the answer/end call button to activate Cortana. Not sure if that feature works with google Now or Siri on the iPhone.
The AptX codec makes a noticeable difference when I play music through my tablet which supports the codec. Less stutter, and crisper sounding music.
Battery life is about 5-8 hours OF SOLID USE. Its phenomenal. Really. I can't fathom how this device can weigh only a few grams and get as much run time as it does. On standby I've had the battery last nearly 4 days. However, if I turn it off, the battery is usually within 20% of the original charge weeks later. Not that I've had it off for that long many times.
Music quality is superb for a bluetooth headset. I've owned a few other earbuds from Sony and also own a few pairs of studio headphones (such as ATH-M40x headphones and the Sony MDR XB90ex earbuds) and while the sound may not be quite as good as the XB90's which had much larger drivers and could sip more power from my phone/tablet/pc/amp, they sound remarkably close, (slightly less bass, about even midrange and treble) even though the whole headset only costs about 1/2 as much as the earbuds did originally. They certainly don't sound quite as good as the ATH-M40x's, with slightly less crisp highs, and a very recessed amount of bass, but for cycling and taking your mind off of mundane tasks at work, the sound is very nice and certainly a step up from other bluetooth headsets I've tried in the 50-150 dollar range. I do use a different set of tips from another pair of earbuds I used to have that are slightly softer and to me make a better seal on my ears, which I've found helps bring out the low end of the earbuds more.
One thing to note is that you CAN NOT simultaneously charge AND listen to the bluetooth headset at the same time. However, with the very quick charge time (about 30 minutes to one hour depending on the state of the battery) and the long runtime, you should be able to charge the unit overnight every night and be able to use it throughout the day without any issues.
The ONLY part of the headset that is damaged is the small rubber tab that held the separate battery cover flap the the main case of the unit. I've included a screenshot to show that even though the rubber let go, the cover flap still functions normally and is still attached to the right arm of the set. I've considered gluing the part back, but it doesn't seem necessary, as it is slightly easier to plug in the charging cable with the flap more out of the way, and when you push the flap into place it is held very securely.
I've since purchased 2 more pairs of this headset, one for a family member and another as a spare, just in case.
I highly recommend this headset!
I've included some screenshots of the state of the headset after more than a solid year of use. Top, bottom and some pictures of the charging port flap.
- Fantastic sound. Rich and immersive.
- Decent battery life. Can stream music for the majority of a work day.
- Good controls
- comfortable for most situations. I don't even notice I am wearing them most of the time.
- Short charge time
- Decent Bluetooth range...I can get good audio upwards of 15 ft away from my phone.
- Since the battery pack lies on your neck, running with the headphones on can be a little frustrating, as it wants to slip down your back with all the jostling. Minor issue.
Overall I wouldn't hesitate for a second to buy another pair or recommend them to someone else.
Edit 5/13/16: Dropping rating from 4 stars to 3 due to poor customer support. Issue here is that the rubber tips can pop off pretty easily, but there are no specific replacements for them. The housing ear tip is much larger in diameter than most IEMs. Perhaps a reason they sound so good? However, that means most tips available in market (Shure, Comply, etc) won't fit these earbuds...and if other rubber tips can be squeezed on to the bud end, then they effectively squeeze themselves off! I have searched far and wide, called Sony (who ignorantly said they are "generically sized" to use whatever tips you want...so clueless about their own product!), and all I have found is one possible option which does not explicitly list this headset as compatible. What the heck, Sony!!??
Pros: Sound quality. These are on par with the best of the best I have ever heard. I mix sound every weekend and have been an enthusiast for 30 plus years.
Size. These are tiny and light weight and beautifully made.
Comfort and fit. I can wear and use these for hous on end... Love 'em.
Cons: Non really. Maybe longer battery performance but then you would add weight so I feel it is just right the way it is. (about 5 hours)
Hope this helps someone decide. Just buy them you won't be sorry. !!! Thanks Sony.
*** Next day I hear the low battery warning and go to charge them after one week and one charge cycle (the first one) it won't charge... Tried everything and nothing fixed it and it wouldn't reset either. Found some blogs which said this was not uncommon. Uh oh. I returned these.
*** Next update - Defective percentage seems high and I didn't want to risk paying 80 bucks and 3 months later have it fail. I ordered the Sol Republic Shadow because they seem to be better suited to my needs.
*** Important update - I reordered another set of Sony SBH-80 s' Lol. if you are still reading this I have listened to the Sol Republic shadows and they sound great but bass heavy so when turned up to 75 - 80% full volume they lose clarity and are not near as awesome as these Sonys'. I would say a 7.8 out of 10 with the Sonys' being a solid 9 of 10 and "there ain't no ten". I have been spoiled by listening to balanced armature in-ears for the last 5 years or so with my Klipsch x10s and x11s and these Sonys are a similar balanced armature design making it far superior to anything else out there.
