Sony Ericsson HBH-IV835 Bluetooth Headset Review
Working with the device is standard and its options do not exceed the regular ones. Operations are carried out mainly thought the only convenient button – the call key. A simple push answers an incoming call when the phone is ringing or terminates an active conversation. In order to reject a call one must press the same button for 2 seconds. Pressing it once in stand-by mode will start the voice commands and two fast clicks - dial the last number. There is one rare option – a master reset. It can be carried out by simultaneously holding the power and call keys for about 8 seconds.
The headset left us with mixed feelings regarding its merits during conversation. An unpleasant effect that is instantly noted is the sharp and grating ‘chainsaw’ sound heard by the other party when answering thought the headset. Your voice is heard clearly and nicely, but the bad news is very weak. The sound in your ear is comparatively normal and clear, but once again – not very strong, which may cause trouble in a noisy environment.
The DSP system is strongly effective against wind noise interference – it filters well even at strong wind and you can talk intelligibly and trouble-free. However it is not equally good at sounds like music and you will have difficulty if it is louder.

Hi. I bought one IV835 and after charging and testing it I found out it was too unstable in my ear and decided to return it to the store. So, I got one Jabra JX10 and I'm loving it (light, good sound and the battery last enough)

I have many BT headset and this is the best that I had. Wearing glasses limits your choice and hard plastic hooking the ear ain't quite cutting it. I also have no problems in terms of voice and sound clarity with it (paired with an old K600i)
