Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HTC BH S600 Bluetooth Stereo Headset - Black (Electronics)
I've tried a few bluetooth headsets and this one is an interesting option. It's clearly of a very high quality - sound is very good and it has excellent range (particularly noticeable between rooms when compared to something like the Jaybird JF3).
This model obviously has the bluetooth receiver as a separate unit to the earphones which has some advantages and one or two disadvantages:
+you can use any earphones of your choice (including of course the ones that come with it which are decent quality and fit well in my ears
+the earphones themselves are much lighter than a unit with the bluetooth receiver and battery on the headset so stay in your ears much better
+(relatively) large battery and receiver that can be clipped to your shirt and therefore has long play time and good reception
-inevitably with a separate bluetooth unit, this means more wires than an on ear unit and to my liking the earphones that come with the device have too long a wire
-not sure how well the clip on the back of the unit will last through frequently being clipped on and off of shirts (its very tight)
-unit does not look like it would offer any level of waterproofing and I wouldn't like to risk sweating on it
Overall I'm very pleased with the unit but not sure if its the best solution for use while exercising due to waterproofing issue and excess wire compared to earphones with built in bluetooth.
