New Sony HBH-IS800 earbuds
by cmohr623 / October 5, 2010 1:37 AM PDT

I have been looking for a good set of Bluetooth earbuds for awhile. I bought a pair of these earbuds to try and was very disappointed. They are comfortable for non-active wearing, but they do not stay in place while jogging or other activities.

The controls seemed cumbersome to even turn the unit on and off. You have to hold down a button on the module near the left earbud and watch for a tiny LED on one of the earbuds to see if it was turned on or off and the button didn't seem very responsive and sometimes I had to press and hold it several times.

The over all sound quality was good for phone calls, but the music quality was very poor, no bass whatsoever. I returned mine after only 2 days and I am still searching.
