Nokia WH-500 Review

Introduction and Design:

What we’ll be looking at in this review is the Nokia WH-500 – a new stereo headset by the Finnish manufacturer. It can be used for both handling your handsfree calls and listening to music.  This headband-style headset has decent dimensions and it will hopefully perform well in the upcoming tests.

The device has an over-the-ear design, and is available only in black color. It is very comfortable to wear because of the light materials used in making it, comprised mostly of nice-feeling plastic. The swiveling ear-cups gently touch your ears, and in the same time cling firmly enough onto them. The wire from the ear-cups ends in a 3.5mm audio jack, and a 2.5mm adapter is also available, adding compatibility with devices, featuring that port. The headset has a hands-free microphone and easily accessible controls, which are located on a module on the wire. The module features six buttons in all: a volume rocker, play/pause and track selection keys and a call key. It should be noted that this particular headset works best with Nokia phones, since the buttons do not function when connected to other manufacturers’ phones, although it still produces high-quality sound with some. With others though, the sound is just terrible, so you might want to test how the WH-500 works with your device before buying it.
