Sony SBH80 Review

Key features

  • Splash Proof
  • 5.8mm drivers
  • Unobtrusive around-the-neck design
  • aptX codec

Introduction

The Sony SBH80 is a completely wireless stereo Bluetooth headset designed to sit intuitively around the neck via thin, metal-memory strips that sit balanced on your shoulders. The SBH80’s is designed to balance great sound and listening quality, with the ability to also take and make phone-calls using the HD microphone.

What is the sound quality ?

The Sony SBH80 includes the aptX audio enhancement codec—this is a high quality codec designed to greatly improve the overall sound quality of wireless audio, even in comparison to non-wireless audio. As a result—the Sony SBH80 has very clear and crisp highs, and decent sustained low bass notes. The SBH80 has greatly stretched bass, providing a good all-round, low-range bass experience that offsets the warm mid tones, which makes for an overall smooth listening experience. The treble is neither to shrill or off-putting as in what happens with many other headphones, and is generally smooth and relaxed—maybe too much so for some.

What is the performance ?

The technology inside the SBH80s is designed to deliver accurate and clear sound across the different frequencies. While they are designed sing double layer, high-strength magnesium for sound isolation and clarity—the noise isolation provided by them is average compared to other noise cancelling products. However, the build quality is very high quality and thus, reliable, The around-the-head design of these wireless earphones is designed for comfort, but in many cases with this design, if done improperly—can cause interference and annoyance. The Sony SBH80 sit generally stable across the back of your neck—thanks largely to the metal strip, even during exercise like running or cycling. Charging time on the SBH80’s is very impressive, but the battery life lasts approximately 8 hours, so around a day. This is fairly average for a wireless Bluetooth setup.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

The Sony SBH80 is perhaps one of the best options for a wireless Bluetooth headset on the market in the under $150 price range. If you are after a wireless music and calling device with excellent sound performance (even compared to non-wireless devices) and an around-the-head style design—then these are the headphones for you, especially if you are on a budget. While there are better options for noise isolation, as well as devices with longer lasting batteries—the SBH80s offer quality features across the board that you would expect from a wireless Bluetooth headset, and a bit extra on top of that.
