Design:
When the matter is earphones whose main purpose is listening to music, there are various types of designs, which differ in the purpose (the place) of listening, as well as in the way, in which the earphones have to be hanged and stand to your head. Nokia BH-601 are earphones directed to young people with the idea that they will be used mainly on the street where your mobile phone will be the source of your stereo; that is why they were created with medium size and modern behind-the-neck design, which hangs the two earphones stable around your head, without being necessary to have a solid and easy to be seen “bridge” between them (like it is with other types of earphones and most of these that are for home use).

Their body is made fully of plastic in order to keep the weight lighter, and the colors used are contrast silvery grey and black, colors that are neutral in principle. As the size is easily noticeable (the earphones are not of the type that go into the ear) the producers used a clever trick to make them suitable for various groups of people thanks to their universal unobtrusive design. Impressive are the forms that are quite square in contrast to the most such earphones that search for round vision: the earphones themselves are almost square, with slightly rounded off edges, and the fastening element binding them is with permanent width and looks like an ark. In our opinion, thereby the device assumes a retro-modern appearance but in the same time is good for sport, as well as for more formal clothes, which makes the earphones universally directed to big circles of people.

The earphones avail of music control buttons; this is thanks to the AVRCP Bluetooth profile, which activates them like a remote control for the telephone. They all are located on the area of the right earphone, and there is no one on the left; we would prefer to have them dispersed, but in such case it would be necessary for you to control them with two hands, which also has its disadvantages. You will find here buttons for the level of sound (+ and -), Power Button, which acts as Pause/Play and Songs Change Buttons (next and previous), that anyway cannot be used for Fast-Forward and Rewind.

The buttons themselves have common performance – they are not very embossed, but they can be felt comparatively easily; these for the sound are over the central big plastic with the Nokia logo, these for the changing of songs are with mirror location, and the Pause/Play Button is at the behind, vertically oriented. The buttons are pushed mildly and this is felt; the only strange thing is the delay in the reaction of the Play/Pause.

Nokia Company has probably not relied on the service lights to supplement the appearance of the earphones; two very small, almost invisible LED-s are used that blink behind. The one lights in blue or red indicating the work regime of the earphones, and the other one blinks (lights) in green upon charging. Most other earphones of this type have big lights clearly visible even on daylight, which blink in any possible ways catching the attention. Personally for us the directness here is a better solution.
