The Sony Ericsson Headset MW600 has built-in FM radio as advertised and it really excels at what it does as a Bluetooth Headset. Let me enumerate the good things about this gadget for you.
1) You unpack and you'll find a UK power supply adapter. I've read some reviewers were disappointed by non-UK imports that became apparent with non-UK mains plug. The connector to the Headset is Micro B USB, and happens to be the same as my smartphone's connector, so this doubles as a spare for charging both for the smartphone and the Headset. The 550 mA current rating for this charger covers almost all portable devices. The phone can be charged from a laptop USB, so is this Headset. If you want to charge this Headset from your laptop (say while on travel) you can get yourself a Micro USB B cable such as USB 2.0 A to Micro B Data Cable for Mobile Devices which is low cost and come in different lengths. Good to have a compatible gadget family where interchangeable adapters and cables can be used thereby reducing clutter at home and on travel.Read more ›
For products advertised on a UK website I feel if it does not have a UK socket, then buyers should be warned!!
They're superb, very easy to set up and use. Volume slider is a bit odd (touch-sensitive bar) but other than that very chuffed with them. Bundled headphones are a bit bass-heavy for my tastes but way above the usual standard of bundled headphones
The device itself is pretty nifty and was purchased because the headphone jack on my phone was starting to become a little faulty. The sound on it is great and the screen is a must if you want to use it to listen to music. The controls are easy enough to use, though I'm not sure whether I'd have preferred a simpler volume control pair of buttons to the touch sensitive strip, but the strip does offer a pretty quick way of 'sliding' the volume all the way down (or up)...but it's not as easy to use without looking at it as the play/forward/backward buttons are.
As for repairing the device, I first dried it out, leaving it a couple of days in a dry and reasonably warm place. The unit still didn't charge, so I decided I would take it apart (didn't have much to lose at this point). I wasn't sure where or if there were any screws holding it all together, but luckily there is a nice YouTube video which some foreign chap has created (search for "disassemble mw600") demonstrating how it's done. I didn't take the device completely apart, just enough so that I had access to the battery. Some rust/oxide/whatever had built up between one end of the battery and the contact of the MW600, which was easy enough to clean off with a bit of wire wool (eg a brillo pad). The unit still wouldn't charge, nor would it turn on.
The next thing I tried, after searching the Web and doing a bit of reading, was to give the unit (WITHOUT the battery) a bath in some white spirit. The idea of this is that it will dissolve any contaminants which have been left on the circuits from the washing powder/liquids.Read more ›
After charging (it is recommended to complete an 8 hour initial charge) I firstly paired it with my iPhone 4, which happened quickly and without issue. I then paired it with my TomTom which was slightly less instant, but eventually completed the pairing (during the pairing process the TomTom spotted the headset, asked for the default PIN to be entered but then reported that it couldn't pair with the headset as it had not reported its pairing features. However, upon dismissing this message it paired and worked OK).
I used it almost immediately for a journey on my bike, travelling around 150 miles and only using it to relay sat nav commends (ie no FM radio use and no phone connection). It easily lasted the trip. A small nuisance is that it clips the first fraction of a second off of the spoken commands, as if the connection takes a little too long to establish for each command, by which time the command has started. That said, this never caused any actual issues. During the 3.5 hour trip it dropped the pairing to the sat nav once (notified by a small audible alert) but then automatically picked it up again within 30 seconds.
The supplied in-ear buds with silicone noise-isolation collars worked well enough inside my full-face helmet, keeping the wind noise down but being loud enough to hear at all speeds, even with the volume nowhere near maximum.Read more ›
