“As more and more people choose to store their digital music on their mobile phone, it becomes increasingly practical to use a Bluetooth™ stereo headset that can deliver quality audio,” explains Jacob Sten, Head of Accessories Business Unit at Sony Ericsson. “This latest headset manages to do this within a compact, stylish design that you will want to be seen wearing. It is so convenient that your phone need never leave your pocket.”
Given a talk time or music playback time of up to 6 hours, the HBH-DS980 has to be designed with comfort in mind. The soft silicon ear buds on the stereo headset are provided in three sizes, so as to ensure an optimum fit with the size and shape of the wearer’s ear. Separate to the headset, the overall unit weighs in at just 27 grams, so won’t be a burden when worn around the neck.
Of course, if you are wearing your headset for long periods, you will also want it to look the part. Finished in a stylish charcoal colour, the Stereo Bluetooth™ Headset HBH-DS980 features a hidden ‘magic mirror’ display that only becomes visible once the headset is activated. Use it to view the title of the song playing on your phone, the battery status of your headset or the details of the caller trying to reach you.
You can use the HBH-DS980 with more than one device at the same time. The new multipoint function allows you to listen to music stored on a Bluetooth™ enabled PC/laptop and handle calls from your phone at the same time.
The Stereo Bluetooth™ Headset HBH-DS980 is designed with the wearer in mind. As well as maximizing comfort and flexibility, its subtle design makes it the ideal companion for a phone such as the new Sony Ericsson T650, also announced today. The HBH-DS980 will be available worldwide from Q3 2007.
