Treo Bluetooth Headset | New SonyEricsson HBH-PV705: Longest Talk Time

It’s been a _very_ long time since I last had the opportunity to review a Treo Bluetooth headset that I considered worthwhile enough to write about.  This has now changed thanks to the new SonyEricsson HBH-PV705 pictured below which has done much to impress me.

As has almost always been the case with SonyEricsson’s Bluetooth headsets the build quality of the HBH-PV705 is extremely high – it feels very ‘solid’ in your hand and comfortable on your ear as well as being one of the few headsets that you can actually put in your pocket without fear of breaking it.  Additionally, other notes of disctinction for the HBH-PV705 is that it offers the longest talk time (a massive 12 hours) and standby time (an impressive 13 days) in an extremely light package (only 14 grams) at a very affordable price (only $49.95) – a combination which I consider to be terric value.

The SonyEricsson HBH-PV705 kit above includes a wall charger and neck band but unfortunately no USB charging cable which as I have mentioned before has become quite essential for me.

In terms of comparative size above, there is no doubt that the PV705 is somewhat larger than my two other top-of-the-line favourites – the Motorola H700 in the middle and Jabra JX10 on the right.  However, more importantly perhaps is the fact that I have been extremely impressed by the PV750’s inbound and outbound voice quality even though it does not use a DSP chip as you will see in the comparative chart below.

Overall if you’re looking for an affordable, high quality Bluetooth headset for your Treo that benefits from incredible battery life then I can assure you that you will be extremely pleased with the new SonyEricsson HBH-PV705.

Treonauts are always the most delighted

You should review the Bluespoon AX2. It is the smallest and most comfortable bluetooth earpiece and the sound quality is perfect. People I'm talking to don't even know I am on a "headset." My only issue is the volume from my Treo 650 is a little too low when in the car. I have VolumeCare installed but that doesn't work for headsets and I've tried BTmute but that didn't make it louder. Still the AX2 is the best thing out there by far.

Interesting comment above on the sound volume of the AX2 as that was my first question about the new SonyErickson. Is it loud enough in the car for my aging ears? I have a Motorola and because it sits on top of my ear I can hear softer voices while driving even with Techician's volume booster. My Jabra JX10 which is just sitting has perfect volume when 'it decides to show up' linked to my Treo 700p but 50% of the time sounds like I'm in a barrel. There must be a perfect bluetooth for the Treo?

RichC - yes, I found the SonyEricsson HBH-PV750 to be _extremely_ loud. This may among others be due to the fact that its design pushes the speaker very close to the inside of your ear (even though it is not an in-ear model strictly speaking).

I hope this helps.

Cheers, A.

Andrew I've bought the palm headset & it hasn't been to my liking. Now, I was just about to purchase the Jabra but, I happen to scan over the Sony review. I'm really wanting the DSP but, I'm wondering is it worth it or is something like the Sony a better fit? In a world of just picking one, which one would you say exceeds the other? Keep up the great work, I love reading & learning about your reviews. They help a alot.

Does anyone else have experience with the Treo 650 or 700p and Bluespoon AX2?

I have the Bluespoon AX2 with my Treo 650 and love it. The only problem I have encountered when driving is sometimes the outside noise is too much and I have to close the car window. Otherwise it's great. Many people don't believe I'm on a bluetooth headset. I highly recommend this unit.

Every headset Ive had JX10 and Plantronics 655 with DSP sounded horrible. Not impressed at all. Im sure the horrible bt on the treo might have something to do with it, who knows. Im interested in trying out the sony/ ericsson.

I don't know if I have a defective unit, or what, but my SonyEricsson HBH-PV750 seems to work really well one day, then on the next, it will burst into a loud high pitch buzz during a call and will function as if microphone and/or speaker are on mute randomly for calls. I find no further reviews of this unit, so I'm not sure if I should send it back and try anohter one of the same, or try a different headset. I used a 662 for more than a year, and loved it. Also, the 662's earloop was much, much more comfortable. I'm very disappointed.

I have a JX10 and I am very disappointed. It sounds great one call, then so bad the next that I have to hang up and call back. The outgoing seems to be much worse than the incoming. I have way too many complaints from people on the other end. I had a Treo 650 and thought that may have been the problem. I recently got a 700w and have the same problem. You'll see the JX10 cheap on Ebay soon. I also have a Scala 500 and have similar problems. I had hoped the 700 would address the problems I saw with the 650. I also tried the Motorola 850 with my Treo 650 and took it back the next day. Am I the only one? Any recommendations for pairing with a 700w. I am using a wired headset until I find a better solution
