Sony Ericsson HBH-PV705 Style Edition Bluetooth headset

Mobile phones

Sony Ericsson has a new Bluetooth headset on the market for “when looking good is important” – the HBH-PV705 Style Edition.

Strangely, the company is selling the merits of wearing your headset as jewellery – hung round your neck for example, courtesy of the included “silver finish” chain. You can – but you might look a little bit silly, no matter which of the three exchangeable panels you select (black, floral or purple).

So let’s concentrate on the technology. It weighs 14g and offers 12 hours talk time, along with 300 hours in standby. The unit rests on your ear with a soft ear hook and as it doesn’t cover your ear canal, you can hear the outside world when wearing it.

Available in the first part of this year, a price is yet to be confirmed.
