I've been looking to buy a bluetooth headset for the last few weeks and have just wandered into my local Tesco (Cannock) to find this Sony Ericsson kit with 75% off RRP.
The same unit sells on Amazon at £38.75.

Thought it was too good to miss, bought the 3 on display (make good xmas pressies)


FULL DESCRIPTION
Clip the lightweight pendant to your top where it can hang out of the way. The music and call handling keys remain close to hand. Leave your phone in your pocket or bag and listen to the music saved on it in high quality wireless stereo. Handle calls without touching your phone.
Never miss a call
Its called a stereo portable handsfree because its for more than listening. A microphone, call answer key and 3.5 mm jack to swap headphones are all built-in.
Wireless music streaming
With A2DP you can stream high-quality stereo music from your phone to your wireless headset or other Bluetooth devices.
Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH)
AFH reduces the impact of interference between wireless technologies, resulting in excellent audio quality.
Digital Signal Processing
Enhanced audio quality is achieved through Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, including compression and echo cancellation.
Automatic volume adjustment
Walk into a noisy environment and the volume adjusts automatically in less than a second.
Superior sound
Each element of a Sony Ericsson music accessory is designed for the best audio performance. Clear sound, deep bass and better performance as standard.
Features
3.5 mm jack
Bluetooth technology
Music browsing
Stereo sound
Two ear plugs

Didn't think to get a snap of the price tag on the shelf. I was too busy putting the contents into my basket!!!
It's the first time I felt inspired to post though, so good did I think the deal was. Got to be worth a look in your local Tesco, just on the off chance....There's another big one near where I work and I'll certainly be nipping in tomorrow.

All the hassle of wired headphones and all the hassles of bluetooth audio.

Heat added, but I won't be buying. ;-)

Another thing, these are great if you can find one as they charge from your standard sony ericsson phone/car charger so no need for multiple chargers,

People in glass houses....

Maybe you should edit your post to be correct also...

Try using you're instead of your - in the context of the post your use was inaccurate.

Also the use of "to" was also incorrect, you should have used "too" instead.

True of just about ANY bluetooth device you could mention, turn BT on your phone to on, and watch the battery indicator go down - but it is still a tremendous way of connecting kit, with this small drawback, and for those of us who have Sony Ericsson phones, the charger is always in the car or handy at home all the time anyway.

Excellent if you can find one, but it is beginning to look as if it is a one off store offer, didn't even see these at full price when I was last in Tesco, and my local store is the biggest of them all! :-(
#21
OoS in Stockport. :cry:
#22
I've got one of these, paid a lot more about a year ago. They are great for when I go jogging and playing tunes from my SE W980. Only letdown as someone else as said, is that in my experience it seems to only last about 2hours of continous music playing before it starts spluttering and then gives up completely about 30 mins later. Hot at this price :thumbsup:

I don't think bluetooth has the capacity to carry good quality audio over the air. Correct me if I'm wrong please.
#24
I have some sony BT headphones and they sound fantastic but having the odd dropout can drive you crazy and dont even think of getting some of these off Ebay as Sony Ericsson accessories are some of the most counterfeited items on ebay and i seriously doubt you would get the genuine item,As for battery life are you sure those ones are genuine as it is practically impossible to tell by looking and the ones i have last for four or five hours easy,

What, USB 1.0 is up to 12Mb per second?
It's audio not HD video!

I think the quality of the equipment might be an issue, but the potential speed of even the old USB 1.0 standard is well over the needs for streaming just audio, USB 2.0 massively more so!

I have a cheap BT headset from MSI, which I used to have Sony headphones plugged into (now dead and need replacing, just using some old ones at the mo!) and I could barely tell the difference with them plugged into the source, as aginst when they were plugged into the BT receiver. Drop outs only get to be a problem if I go well away, such as upstairs, or near interference sources such as the Microwave!
I think I paid about 15 quid for it ages ago, so it is hardly high end gear!

It's mediocre sound quality (AAC encode/decode on the fly IIRC), and if you are playing a low bitrate MP3, along with using the suppled cheapo headphones you are stacking everything up against you.

The worst thing is that WiFi interferes with BT, so the closer you are to a WiFi radio, the more dropouts you will get, and when you do get drop outs, the music actually changes speed to catch up, which is really not cool, as people are very sensitive to pitch wobble in music.

BT headphones are better if you are outside of the house when you use them. I got the Play/Sony BT222 and iPod adaptor kit on here, it's incredibly handy because I moving about working, but a mediocre sound.

Of all the effects I have ever heard from interference, then this is the one I have NOT heard!
As a musician you can bet your life I can detect this sort of change too.

Not had any problems with WiFi either, although I only rarely have mine switched on now as it is ssimply not very good, and I have moved on to powerline ethernet plugs.

I would suggest that using it outside, whether or not it is better will simply drown out some of the problems that might or might not be there... the sound of footfalls resonating through your bones to your ears when walking is more than any interference I have ever had, as it is accented when wearing headphones. Same applies to wired, and a similar thing in a car, the quality of the sound is least important then when all hell is going on around you!
I probably couldn't tell the difference between a scratched record and a live performance of the LSO under some of those circumstances! In effect, real HiFi when trolling around isn't an option however you try to get it!

So, for moving around, fine. If you are still and sitting comfortably, maybe it isn't 100% perfect, stick with wires, I do; but as the whole point of wireless-anything is so you CAN move around with it, at this sort of price point, it is a completely irrelevant argument, and it provides easy movement, with a decent enough sound, very cheaply

All I want is to replace my ipod 5g and SE K810i with only one device = phone. I'm using Shure e4g and 320kbps mp3.

They had them in my local tesco, picked up a pair. The were marked with the reduced price too. Hot deal, might go back and get another pair.

Are you writing a riddle? :p Voted hot, am I right in thinking you can use these for listening to music (Walkman) as well?
#32
I've just been testing these with a n95, they work great, really loud too. A steal at this price considering they are around £40 everywhere else, even cheaper than the dodgy ones from hong kong on ebay.

showgirl you seem to have something against fat and lazy people, don't be too harsh on yourself mate...

people may be fat and you may be an idiot to have something against them, but they can at least lose weight! LMAO! hahaha :whistling:



Good find by the way...too bad sold out at my tesco
#34

None at Tesco Surrey Quays/Canada water nor Southwark/Old Kent Road

Believe you me it does it. I too have musical hobbies (DJing) where pitch change is incredibly noticeable, and frustrating.

the two share the same spectrum at 2.4GHz, and because the Bluetooth can't tell when it is being interfered with, since version 1.2 (IIRC) it simply hops through all the available channels. It therefore will land on your wifi channel periodically, however the protocol stack will re-send the lost data and most data connections would not have a problem with that. Except for streaming music. But it's not streaming music, it's a streaming datafile. You can tell this because the dropouts don't miss any bits of the music track. If it was simple streaming music you'd miss chunks of the song out with each signal loss. It's especially bad when my laptop checks for new email. And for some reason, the guys who wrote Bluetooth saw fit to speed up the music if there is a dropout. Why the audio clock isn't Manchester Encoded into the music bitstream I don't know.

Outside is a different kettle of gibbons. Then you just have to upgrade the cheapo supplied headphones to get some bass. And then you have wires again.
#37
just got a set at tesco stafford. Not sure if any left (only the one redeem dvd box on the shelf) now to charge them up :)


supplied phones arent that great, my (same sort) of phones that came with my w580i are AMAZING through this. So much bass and louder than using them wired. I love this thing!
