Solid headset, good value,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Headset HBH-PV705, Silver (Wireless Phone Accessory)
If you've been reviewing Bluetooth headsets, you've probably heard it all. They don't fit your ear, they echo, callers can't undertand you, the battery dies too quickly... I purchased this item about a month ago, and haven't found any of these complaints to hold true for this headset.
I've charged it once, and haven't had to re-charge it yet. Sure, I've only made 5 or 6 short calls on it, but it's turned on for at least an hour a day during my commute.
My wife could tell that I was calling from my car, but she didn't notice a difference between normal road noise and the Bluetooth reception.
The headset fits my ear comfortably. You probably have already read that this set doesn't insert into your ear canal, but rather rests against it. I found this to be comfortable, and without any side-effects. It's even comfortable when wearing sunglasses.
I've never heard and echo, nor received complaints of others hearing one.
Many reviewers of this and other models seem to dislike the multi-function button. Well, it's a single button, and it's used to perform multiple functions. Sometimes you press it for a few seconds, sometimes you just tap it. I primarily use it for 'on' and 'off'. 'On' takes about 2 seconds, and 'off' takes about 5 or 6 seconds (although I have to admit, it seems to take just a bit longer than I'd prefer...) to turn off. I'm not sure why some would complain about this feature, as most phones have one...
I'm not sure what all the fuss is from other reviewers (more often on other brands...), but this headset seems perfect to me.
