Sony’s new SBH80 wearable hands-free headset (S$188) with apt-X for lovers of quality audio
Iconic neckband style for fatigue-free all-day superb music sounds of pure deep bass and clean clear highs
Balanced armature drivers deliver the clarity and frequency accuracy required for the best in-ear audio experience. Along with specially-made dual-layered housings of high-strength magnesium, the listening experience for SBH80 users is crystal clear mid to high range sound and overall rich audio. Ear buds designed for maximum background noise-cancelling combine with perfect sealing so users get the best quality music experience.
Unveiled to the world at CES 2014, the sleek, highly durable SBH80 with ground-breaking audio technology now retails in Singapore for RRP S$188 at Sony Style, Sony Centres, Best Denki, Gadget World, Newstead Technologies, M1 Shops, Stereo Electronics, Tech@Vogue and other authorised resellers.
Optimized sound. Optimal wearability
Designed to be worn and used all day and in any situation, SBH80 - weighing 16g - is discreet and suits any type of clothing style. The neckband houses a long lasting battery and Bluetooth module and is where the micro USB charging port, power button, and NFC tag are located. From there, ultra-thin memory metal arms extend around the neck to rest securely on the shoulders, connecting to two slim stations holding microphones and remote control buttons for music and call navigating. Then they go on to finally end in small, lightweight, and extremely comfortable earbuds.
When not inserted in ears, these earbuds wear loosely down the front of shoulders. And when a call, message or other notification comes through, the neckband vibrates in a discreet alert.
Discreet vibrating alert for calls, messages & notifications
For real-time talking over the phone, the well-made SBH80 is equipped with double microphones. Whichever way the user’s head is turned, whether to the right or left, there’s a microphone close-by and callers get an even, high-quality call experience. SBH80 is HD Voice-ready so callers hear your voice as it really sounds: natural and clear. With the vibrating alert, users won’t be missing a call or message, even in the noisiest, quietest, and busiest places. Staying connected becomes infinitely more comfortable and enjoyable.
SBH80 supports Bluetooth 3.0, NFC for easy pairing and multipoint connectivity for two or more devices at the same time. Equipped with a 125 mAh battery, the headset is capable of delivering up to 6 hours of stream time and up to 9 hours talk time.
