    Features

    Probably the most useful feature about any phone, as well as the most obvious, is, of course, Bluetooth. Bluetooth, in case you don't know, is a technology which allows you to use various electronics wirelessly in synchronization with other devices, and have far ranges. The HBH-60 takes advantage of Bluetooth, and this allows someone to talk through the headset, while the phone is up to 10 meters away outside, or 5 meters away inside. Although I didn't test outside, I managed to get about 4.5 meters when testing indoors using a T68i.

    Another feature on the headset is the connect button. By pressing this button, which is on the back of the headset, allows you to accept incoming calls, or make calls by clicking it and saying the persons name (if you have Voice Command). You can also use it to turn on and off the headset.

    Other features include muting the microphone, adjusting volume, and accepting a second call, as well as learning battery status.

    Installation

    It's a pretty painless process to install the HBH-60 and pair it with your phone. You just turn on the headset, hold the connect button for a couple seconds, and then search for any devices on your phone. Your phone should pick up the headset. That's all there is to it.

    Quality

    When making calls to other people using the headset, the parties told me that they could not hear any difference between the cell phone and the headset, which is a good sign. Also, I could not hear any sort of background noise on the headset, and quality was always crisp, as lost as I had good signal strength.

    Battery Life

    With a fresh charge, I got almost three hours worth of talk time, and about 60 hours of standby time, which isn't too bad. If you are a heavy talker, be sure to keep a charger around you. However, Sony Ericsson does not recommend talking on the phone while charging.
