Sony Ericsson Bluetooth headset HBH-65

Quick Take: The Sony Ericsson Bluetooth HBH-65 headset is so featherweight, we almost forgot we were wearing it when we went out to lunch. Sleekly blue and silver, this headset also has a particularly attractive design and a snug, comfortable fit, but its ear loop is plastic and easily removable. Still, we like the large, easy-to-use buttons, the leather carrying case and belt clip, and the charger that works with all Sony Ericsson phones.

We tested the headset on the Nokia 6820, the Motorola V600, and the Sony Ericsson T616. The sound quality was varied at times, with incoming calls sounding crystal clear, but callers on the other end of the line complained that the signal sometimes cut out. As for the battery life, Sony promises 2.5 hours of talk time and 3 days on standby. In our tests, we fell short of the rated standby time by a quarter of a day.
