Sound or Noise?

Music mobiles era will also increasingly more headphones without cord-for those who want to be able to both listen to music and talk on the phone in their headphones. Or you can use them when you look at the mobile tv on the subway. Both Sony and Nokia has its own model for the most demanding, and we’ve tested what they go for.

Form & ergonomics

Nokia BH-604

Nokia’s new stereo headphones are made to really embrace the whole of the ears and the cuffs around his ears are very soft and comfortable. While the jumper is heavily padded, to feel comfortable on the head. Of course, it is possible to regulate how big head you have, but perhaps the one that has a really big head experience them as too small.

Sony DR-BT50

Sony’s headphones are less than Nokia’s, but they are also pleasantly designed with soft cuffs and a comfortable feeling. They sit a little closer to the head than Nokia’s, due to the treadle is a little stiffer. It is easy to regulate the scope.

Winner: Tie

Buttons

Nokia BH-604

Because you can’t see the buttons when the headphones sitting on his head has place for Nokia buttons large surfaces that minimise the risk of hitting the wrong. Clever indeed. All the buttons are on the right earpiece. Bottom half of the handset’s exterior is the play/pause button. The upper half of the handset’s exterior responds to on the phone. Underneath are a volume slab that can be drawn in one or other way to control the volume. The downside may be that easy access buttons when you put on the headphones.

Sony DR-BT50

Sony’s lurking is less than Nokia’s, but the keys are definitely less. Here, it feels like the focus has been to get clean shiny sleek headphones by placing nearly all buttons in a tight cluster on the right bottom of the handset. It is not smart because it is easy to hit the wrong button and can’t find right, or can’t remember which of the closely spaced buttons that had the feature.

Winner: Nokia

Audio music

Nokia BH-604

Nokia-lurarnas sound favored by that Nokia had headphones to be so big. It creates a space within the actual headset. In addition, the Nokia headset a good frequency response that allows even lower bass frequencies are reproduced in sound timbre. On the other hand, are not always sound perfect harmonies, some bass can sound like the chatter a little. It got better when I went down the base of the mobile phone’s equalizer.

Sony DR-BT50

Sony’s lurking in its feels very ordinary sound reproduction. What is missing is that the lower bass frequencies seem to be absent, regardless of how I set up the equalizer in mobile phone. It can provide a little thinner sound when listening to music that uses all of the tonal range. But otherwise feels sound pure and good, and for the regular pop music may not be noticeable gaps.

Winner: Nokia

Audio calls

Nokia BH-604

Answer the phone to do it with a light pressure on the upper part of the right earpiece, and sound during calls is actually surprisingly good. The best it gets, of course, but also when you walk in the town, it is quite good to talk. The man talks to hear crystal clear in the enclosing the headphones, and even though the microphone sits up in the earphones is successful the catch up what one says good without getting too much noise from the surroundings. It works simply great, albeit not quite as good as with a normal chat headset.

Sony DR-BT50

A blank oblong plastic button at Center on the right headphone is used to answer the phone or start voice dialling (if your phone supports it). The microphone sits on the right earpiece. Unfortunately, it is very sensitive to ambient sound, and the talking to get with a lot of noise if you’re talking on a street in town, not to mention in an underground environment, On a noisy Street, hear the man talk to do not what they say. The sound of the talking with is also quite tinny.

Winner: Nokia

Miscellaneous

Nokia BH-604

Price speaks definitely to the Nokia-lurarnas advantage. Due to the control location is easily pressed when they are in the bag, which can lead to the phone starts playing music or make calls. You simply get used to turn off the headphones before you put them in your bag.

Sony DR-BT50

The big advantage of Sony headphones in this competition is that they are so portable. Except that they are smaller in the format they are thanks to the design easy to fold and put in a bag without being bulky. However, the price is well high.

Winner: Sony

Winner: Nokia BH-604

Sure, the Nokia stereo headphones is larger than Sony’s, but they also provide better audio for both music and in particular when headset is used for phone calls. The strengths of Nokia headphones in the sound of music is that they have a wider table that gets better with lower frequencies, and the tonal range feels quite the treat inside the comfortable headphones. Both Nokia and Sony wonder sits comfortably on your head and work clearly accepted as musiklurar, but Nokia still depart with clear victory in this duel.
