Many people often whine that bluetooth headphones are pricier than their features deserve. But, those who have tried the Sony DRBT50 Stereo Bluetooth Headset hardly have any reason to whine. The price, not really sky-high, is worth every cent.
The Sony DRBT50 Stereo Bluetooth Headset belongs to the circumaural-closed type of bluetooth headphones. This technical term simply means that the headphones' earcups will enclose your ears, as in earmuffs. It is also a headband type of headset, which essentially means that it will hang over your head to keep it in place. Being circumaural, the design of the Sony DRBT50 is intended to supply passive noise reduction, and the unit does it superbly, too.
Despite enclosing your ears, the headset's cups will hardly cause discomfort or fatigue, even if you use the bluetooth headphones up to its maximum of 17 hours (approximately) play or talk time. The reason for this convenience is the well-designed and durable cushioning on both the earcups and the headband.
Unlike most other bluetooth headsets, the Sony DRBT50 offers true multipoint capability. That means your bluetooth headset is not limited to 2-device or 3-device simultaneous pairing. Instead, pair it with up to 8 other gadgets. With easy and accessible touch-sense function buttons on the headset, those devices are easy to operate and control. Though, the buttons can be somewhat confusing to a new user, they become almost second nature once you become familiar of their respective functions.
As for the sound, the Sony DRBT50 produces crisp and clear sound along with deep bass. Audio quality is one of the things you're paying for, so the Sony DRBT50 won't skimp on that. Nothing less than top-quality neodymium magnets are used in the earcups. The microphone, on the other hand, produces a sound quality that is acceptable and more than enough for making voice calls.
One of the distinctive highlights of this model is its replaceable battery. Not many bluetooth earphones have this. If they do, it probably won't be as well-documented in their user manuals as in the Sony DRBT50's. Apart from that, this model's battery power can take you through about 17 hours of non-stop use. If you use this device for work, you should be able to end your work day and still have enough power to use your device for a few more hours.
The Sony DRBT50 Stereo Bluetooth Headset indeed showcases a lot of wonderful features despite its ordinary-looking appearance. After all, bluetooth headphones are not judged only by their exterior looks but also, and more importantly, by their sound quality and convenience to the user.
