Sony Ericsson MW600 Review

Sony Ericsson MW600 Review

Bluetooth headsets are just another tribute to the modern technology, as they enable us to do things that were reserved for the sci-fi movies not that long ago. And we're not talking about some flashy moves, but about a few highly useful tricks - after all, it's quite enjoyable to talk to your friends, while cycling or do the dishes at 4 a.m., while using your phone and headset to listen to some political hip-hop from the 80's. It's not only convenient - after all, the good old MP3 players have proven again and again that in certain situations, they simply can't get the job done - but also it feels great and cool. One example of such device is the Sony Ericsson MW600, so, please, read on this review, for this headset has a lot to offer.


Design-wise, the Sony Ericsson MW600 Bluetooth headset is extremely compact (6.88 x 5.90 x 24.40) and lightweight (13 g). Just to visualize it - if your hands are with average size, the MW600 is almost as small as your little finger and the clip-on design means it's easy to carry it around. This wireless headset doesn't offer something unseen in similar devices, i.e. you have headphones, which you connect to a 3.5mm jack, placed on the Bluetooth module. On the top side, this wireless device sports some goodies like an OLED display, a microphone and the end call button. On the left, we have the USB port, as well as the dedicated power button, while on the right there is the 3.5 mm headphone connector. On the back side resides the above-mentioned clip, while the two upper sides are occupied by the volume rocker and the play, back and forward buttons.

The practical implementation of all these buttons is that you can fully control your handset and its music/call capabilities without even being in the same room as your phone, which is quite handy. Furthermore, you can use this device with your favourite headphones, since they are all compatible, and pair the Sony Ericsson MW600 with another manufacturer's handsets. FM radio is also offered as a feature.

I am buying Galaxy 3 which has Bluetooth ver 3, am concerned if this will with it because of Ver 1.5?

by connecting two handsets, means 'simultaneously' from my experience, one as a MP3 player (A2DProfile), the other as Phone (Headset profile) connecting three - i haven't tried it, but am sure it will leave one connection :) at least i don't have to pair for it (turn off, then turn on)

This was a very poor review that did not include how music was played in the headset. It did not even include a comparison with other head sets. A very poor review

Does it works with Mediascape on the X10?

It's a good device, very pleasant musik quality... But I have a problem unfortunately: the samsung wave didnt't work well with it. Sound quality via Mw600 from wave is poor, metalic one. Strange because the this phone work very good with other headphones, and the MW600 work brilliant with the other phone that I have (SE w880). Anyway I wait the Xperia Arc to appear and I hope a 100% match.

Yes i agree, but set the equalizer to rock + bass enhancement and ull feel little difference..its actually quite tricky but u can.. connect the earphones in to the phone and start music player with rock + bass equalizer then long press menu icon and end music player while playing music, then connect the mw600 or anyother bluetooth headset and once its connected just press the play button on the headset without going to music player..ull find the equalizer is set to bass + rock..dont disturb it otherwise ull get the msg"bass enhancement works with headphones mode"

How can it be a good review when the most important aspect of it, the music quality, is missing. I don't like long reviews but this certainly was a poor review. By the way I bought two of them so I have nothing against the headset itself.

Can the device act as a wireless microphone, recording audio it into your phone?

15. Jackthefirst unregistered

If ad2p supports it, it could possible. And, reviewer, the headphones have a necklace that you can put around your neck. so you only have one cord on the front. hope u understand it lol

I want to ask everybody who post comments here or elsewhere, to think about that some people might read and consider this article as honest. I did, and I failed. I have bought an an MW600. On the review is written ".. can be paired with two handsets simultaneously". That's wrong. The MW600 CAN NOT connect to two mobile phones simultaneously, for example. The product is far away from the Sony presentation or from other bluetooth headsets with same price. 1. It is written that is dual point, but is nor written that you CAN NOT connect to two mobile phones at once. 2. The mic filters are very bad or not at all. 3. The controls are (to be polite) unintelligent. 4. Radio is just for kids. If you need a radio headset only, you may spend your money in wind. If you want a proper bluetooth headset, forget about MW600.
