Sony has been a driving manufacturer in electronics for years, so it was no surprise when they took their years of wisdom and integrated them in Headphones and Cellular/SmartPhone Headsets. For some manufacturers, this is a task that can take years to perfect. Luckily for Sony, those years are mere minutes in their long, productive life as an industry leader in electronics. The new Sony SBH20 Wireless NFC Bluetooth Headset is like a taste of everything you could want in a pair of in-ear headphones or Bluetooth stereo headset with the bonus of being incredibly convenient, and small. The fact that it is NFC Bluetooth just so happens to be one of the perks of allowing Sony to continue to do what they do best! A Built-In clip makes the SBH20 the perfect companion for any sort of road trip, use at the gym, at work, or even as a leisure headset. Now available in a variety of 7 different colors, the biggest decision that you are left with is ... What color?

I LOVE this product

September 3, 2014

I bought my first SBH20 in Taipei last year, and purchased this second one online because I was heartbroken when the first went missing. I don't know why this product isn't more readily available for purchase in-store in the US, it's such an amazing headphone set. I love it that my phone isn't attached to a cord that's constantly getting tangled or that I'm accidentally knocking out of my ears. Every function worked well on my iPhone 4s and now as well on my Moto X (though with the Android, I had to pair via NFC to get the back/forward/volume buttons to work - took me awhile to figure that out).

Highly recommend, especially for exercising and walking around town! I want to see more of these on the streets!
