Unlike many of the other bluetooth stereo headphones in the market, these in-ear ones from Sony Ericsson are tiny in size, making them ideal for the minimalist amongst us.
The Sony Ericsson IS800 stereo bluetooth headphones sport an earbud style design with just a slender cable connecting the two earbuds. There is a small control unit on the wire that is used to accept calls and to start and stop music. Apparently it can not be used to control volume or to skip tracks, which is a bit of a limitation.
According to reviews of the Sony Ericsson IS800 they deliver good quality sound with a warm bass to it without being overwhelming, while also providing clear reproduction of different elements in the music.
They are reported to handle activity fairly well, including walking and running, although the control unit hangs down from the left side of the headset so it might move around a bit.
Battery time is advertised at 3.5 hours of talk/listening time. Some also report that the right earbud that houses the battery has a tendency to heat up.
The Jaybird 200 stereo bluetooth headset is available from amongst other the following UK retailers:
