Sony Ericsson HBH-30 Bluetooth Headset - Mobile Accessories Sony Ericsson HBH-30 Bluetooth Headset

The long-awaited replacement for the HBH-10/15 models is finally here! And I would surely say the HBH-30, by Sony Ericsson, is one of the best wireless boom headsets that I’ve come across so far. Considering the number of major improvements that it has, those who have used previous models may want to have a look at what the HBH-30 has to offer.


Take a closer look!

“What major improvements” I hear? Well, the first thing I noticed after taking the HBH-30 out of the box was its large and very thick ear hook piece. One reason for the ear hook’s thickness is because it encases the headset’s power supply via two small batteries, which also provides for the required weight to balance the headset on the ear.

Unlike its predecessors, the HBH-30 doesn’t have the removable ear hooks for different ear sizes. Instead, it uses a soft, flexible rubbery material which can be adjusted to sit comfortably on the back of an ear. The ear hook can also be turned around 180 degrees, so that it can be used on the alternate ear as well. If one ear gets tired, try using it on the other :)

Three buttons is all there is on the HBH-30 - two volume buttons located on both side of the headset’s casing, and one multi-function key around the earpiece area. Pressing both volume buttons together for a brief moment will provide information on the HBH-30’s battery state, while a brief press of the multi-function key will answer or reject an incoming call. Voice functionality requires a longer press (a beep will be heard when the headset is ready to accept the voice command), and slightly longer to turn on and off the headset.


The HBH-30 follows a similar design genre to the HBH-20 Bluetooth handsfree. Gone are all the corners (found on the HBH-10/15), and in with curves all around. Although the boom is similar in length than previous models, I did not find it as long - probably because of the ear hook’s larger size compared to the boom section of the headset.

Compared to Motorola’s Bluetooth headset, the HBH-30 is approximately 20mm longer in length.

So there are the curves - but do they make the headset look good? Absolutely! If you’re a current HBH-10 or HBH-15 user, and want a more modern-looking headset, the HBH-30 could just be an answer to your prayers :)
