Sony Ericsson introduces HBH-DS980 stereo Bluetooth headset

Mobile phones

Another new launch from Sony Ericsson, this time the HBH-DS980 stereo Bluetooth headset for wire-free music and calling.

Weighing in at 27g, the selling points here include digital noise cancellation/echo reduction to reduce background noise, Bluetooth 2.0 for better quality voice calls, A2DP for music streaming in stereo, three sizes of silicon ear buds for a perfect fit, and a hidden OLED display, only visible when the headset is in use and able to show the song details, battery status or caller detail.

You can also use the HBH-DS980 with more than one device at the same time – a multipoint function allows you to listen to music stored on a Bluetooth-enabled PC/laptop and handle calls from your phone at the same time. Talk or music playback time is quoted at six hours.

The HBH-DS980 will be available worldwide from the third quarter of 2007. No price as yet.

  • Could you please advise a solution for this problem I face?. HBH-DS980 is getting paired OK with IBM T61 laptop. While connecting either stereo audio or headset it disconnects with connection error.

    Please advise whether anything to do finetune this?
