Sony Ericsson MW600 Review

Posted: , by Alex I.



The Sony Ericsson MW600 can be paired with two handsets simultaneously and has the impressive 11 hours of talk time and 8.5 hours of music playing. The headphones' rubber is soft and gentle, and there is no way you can suffer sore ears or similar adverse effects, even if you use the MW600's headphones on an everyday basis for a long time.

What's even more important for a Bluetooth headset is the call quality, and it was simply delightful, since the voices on the other side of the line sounded loud, clear and natural to us. They said that we sounded just as good, and even when the headset's microphone was far away from us, as usually happens in hands-free situations, voice quality didn't suffer immensely. Take into account, though, that on one occasion we experienced some sound disruptions when making a call, even though the headset wasn't that far away from the phone. Luckily, this was an isolated instance and is not the norm with the Sony Ericsson MW600.

Listening to music on this Bluetooth headset is a pleasure, since the volume levels are very good and the sound quality is excellent.

It's worth noting that before you buy this wireless headset, the best thing to do is to check whether your phone is compatible with the MW600, since some handsets were unable to connect to it.


At the moment, you can buy the Sony Ericsson MW600 for as little as $55, and, in our opinion, the price is very reasonable for what you get - a long battery life, clear and natural voices plus good design. So, if you are searching for a good and affordable Bluetooth headset, this may very well be a match made in heaven.

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

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?

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.
