Nokia WH-500 Review

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team



The Nokia WH-500 is great for listening to music. As a whole the headset is loud enough and we were pleased with its performance. It creates a deep sound that handles bass well. At regular volume settings the playback is really nice, although at full volume level there is some noise, and then the normally decent sounding bass takes over the mid-range tones. We tested many different types of music and found no noticeable difference in audio quality.

We also conducted some call quality tests with the WH-500. The headset handled calls adequately, but not admirably. On our side there was a bit more to be desired, as voices were somewhat muted, and we wish they were a little louder; however, they sounded pretty real too, with no metallic noises to spoil the experience. On the other end of the line everything was fine - the volume was acceptable, with sharp, yet intelligible sound.


As we mentioned earlier, the headset doesn’t function well with other phones than with Nokia’s own devices, but if you are a Nokia user and you want a decent pair of headphones, then these are for you. The design of the Nokia WH-500, complimented by the black color is pretty standard, and is nothing to write home about. However, the comfort, lightness and overall ease of use left us satisfied with Nokia’s headphones. The audio playback is not perfect, but in general is of good quality. If only they came with a bit lower price tag…
