Hi all,

Some of you know, that new Sony Xperia (2012) line phones use CTIA 3.5mm standard (basically same as Apple's iPhone). I have seen some phone reviews and noticed, that standard headset is in one piece, you cannot disconnect headphones. I am looking for headset, where you can unplug headphones and connect better ones, and of course it has to work with new Xperia S.

Something like we had with Xperia X10:

Difference between CTIA (Xperia S) and OMTP standard:

Thanks for an advice. I checked it somewhere else and it has got rather avarage reviews, apparently cable and clip keep breaking. Do you have one, so you could confirm?

Yeah, why not. Not only for me, you could post something for others as well. I have MW600, but I am not a big fan of listening music over bluetooth.

In the car it's convenient (not only music) and I always have a quarrel with the wire lol
I never can resist an offer when it's free lol

I also have the MW600, and I preordered my Xperia S with that free bluetooth headset as well...

I'm curious if it's any better, if not I may just resell the freebie one :P I have had my MW600 for awhile, and I have yet to find better

You realize the mw600 won't work right on the xperia s if you just plug it in?

Sony changed the headset standard, to be compatible with the more widely used ctia standard (same as iphone). The pins are connected differently:



You can offcourse buy an adapter cable so that it will work.

you cant plug the MW600 into anything, its a stand alone bluetooth device that you can plug your headphones into. Unless you mean the headphones that might come with the Xperia, which I never use anyways.

So I i really don't care about the jack and the other bluetooth device mentioned above works in the same manner.

Yea, it's a really nice little gadget I highly recommend it if you don't like all the wires. I always have my phone in my pocket or in a case on my side, because I am horrible with dropping phones.

I was on the Sony site looking at the new BT device, and apparently it has a seperate SD card for music and such, which could be big downside to owning that device if you are like me, and keeps a rather large music collection on your phone. With the small LED it would also make it a bit hard to dig through your music collection :/

Or it can go the other way....

Putting all the music to the BT devices SD storage would free up the space on the Xperia S :/ though with that space it's not really necessary to hold back...


meh, I dunno, I will see where this goes...It's over a week til I get even the phone anyways (I need to send in for the BT device apparently) we'll see from there how it goes.
