Why my third Bluetooth headset is #Sony_SBH-52…

SONY SBH52/SBH-52 SMART DUAL FUNCTION WIRELESS BLUETOOTH 3.0 HEADSET

I just lost my previous Bluetooth  headset which was “Amkette Trubeats Slix Bluetooth“. SBH-52 is my 3rd Bluetooth headset. I don’t have luck with the Bluetooth devices. The first one(Beats S750) got broken from the charging point on its second charge; the second got stolen from the house by the A/C repair guy and now this is the third. Praise the lord, this has been with me since 2nd June 2014 and no such incidences has happened with it. I guess third is really a charm. Following are few of the reasons why I shifted from  “Over The Head” to “Over the Ear” to just a transmitter.

Firstly, I love the concept of “No Strings Attached”. Talking to a person and listening to music/FM and controlling it without putting you hand into your pocket is what I have always wanted. Few scenarios where you cannot reach your pockets like jogging or you don’t want to seem rude in a meeting while you want to keep a tab on the guests who were about to arrive at your house, so you get the point; if you don’t encounter any such situation then you should probably stop reading. Let us talk about few features and use cases of the phone which everyone needs to know. <only doing this because I could find a good review online>

**Don’t get alarmed if you see VirusDetected in few pics. It is the name of my phone.

Features:

  1. Connectivity 10 meters. But, you can’t really make a call or listen to songs clearly beyond 6 meters.
  2. Either a thin concrete wall or a wooden door up to 5 meters from the phone doesn’t affect the sound quality.
  3. NFC enabled – you don’t have to take the pain of pairing it up. Just touch any NFC enabled phone and it works.
  4. Loudspeaker – If you want to talk to someone while driving, this is the best mode.

TODO:// talk about the app.
