Sony DR BT160 review

 

Fitness-friendly headphones come in a variety of shapes and styles--from earclip to behind-the-neck--and finding a pair that stays put on your head while you're active can take some trial and error. Once you get past fit issues, you may find yourself...

The Sony DR-BT160 Active Style Wireless Stereo Headset allows for wireless audio streaming and music playback control with a compatible Bluetooth device. Sound quality is good.

The Sony DR-BT160 Active Style Wireless Stereo Headset is pricey, and the neckband isn't adjustable, which can cause fit and comfort issues. Call quality is only so-so.

The Sony DR-BT160 Active Style Wireless Headset is a good option for gym rats who want to cut the cord between themselves and their wireless music devices, but business-minded users who are picky about call quality should steer clear.

Sony DR-BT160AS

 

A wireless stereo headset that streams music from Bluetooth-compatible MP3 players, the Sony DR-BT160AS is also splashproof. It has a built-in microphone for hands-free calling, and a sliding earpiece shaft. Controls are also handily located on the...

Unless you enjoy the grunts and wheezes of fellow gym-bunnies, slap on these wireless cans and turn the Rocky theme tune up loud. Alternatively, annoy other fitties by taking a hands-free call. Awesome. Sony DR-BT160AS is tagged with Sony and...

Consumer review (sony.com)

Great Design and concept, needs noise cancelling

 

Great concept, I shopped around and for me being a gym fitness fanatic I work out or ride bikes several times a week, the fit and weight is awesome and that I have seen this is the best wireless headphone set for fitness.

Great design, great fit, lightweight, awesome controls

Volume is very low in a Gym or Fitness Center or Airport

Good while it worked

 

This unit is a dream came true for me - exercising at the gym without headphone wires connected to my iPod. I keep the iPod with the transmitter on the elliptical stand or in my pocket. In fact, I like it so much that I bought two sets for fear that...

Great wireless option

Extremely unreliable product

Consumer review (sony.com)

just ok

 

"Sound if just fair and dull. Unable to rest your head back. These are for excercise mostly and secure for that. They are not in my oppinion for casual listening. Blue tooth works well. i am returning them for a more conventional headphone."

Fit reasonibly well and secure. Blu tooth works well

Sound is just fair. No life to it. Can't rest your head back

Good but not Great

 

"These Headsets are ok and they are the longest lasting pair that I have owned, that is not necessarily a good thing. My sweaty work-outs have destroyed everything from S9's to the "Meant for sweat" Jaybirds and also a pair of Bluetreks. I was an early...

Have not broken and maintains a great connection

Will not stay on your ears, No Bass, Ugly and very ugly

not worth a penny

 

"What was supposed to be its positive aspect of its design, became the negative point of this product. Its not that I dont like sony products, they r best when it comes to address consumer needs, having said that, I wonder what were they really...
