Nokia BH-905i Bluetooth headset
A bit of luxury item, perhaps, but Nokia BH-905i Bluetooth stereo headset has many advantages. It is stereo headphones, hands-free, VoIP headset and active noise canceling system in one stylish and lightweight package.
Structure, feel and packaging
BH-905i is lightweight although it carries battery inside it. Both earpieces rotate for easy storage. Headset and its accessories are packed inside sturdy leather case, where there is slot for headset and a multi-pocket leather pouch with room for charger, all cables and adapters. This keeps everything neatly in one place and protects your valuable headset.
Wearing BH-905i is a comfortable experience due to their light weight and structure. All control buttons are easy to use even though you cannot actually see them, when you are wearing the headset.
BH-905i can be used with Bluetooth (2.1 with EDR) and audio cables. It comes with several connection cables, extension cable, and connector adapters. There is even a VoIP adapter. This means that you can use BH-905i with cellphones, media players, stereo system, TV, car and airplane audio system etc.
Audio quality in this headset is amazing, especially with active noise canceling (ANC) on. You can hear even small nuances that you might miss when listening music from speakers. When headset is used with Bluetooth, you can activate bass boost and stereo widening effects if your music stream support them.
Active noise canceling improves listening experience enormously. Since almost all (99%) background noise is cancelled you do not have to listen music as loud as with normal earphones. Or you do not have listen anything, just enjoy the relaxing silence.
With BH-905i you can easily listen music for 16-17 hours using bluetooth with ANC on. With ANC off, this increases to 24 hours. When using audio cables you can listen music for 40 hours with ANC on. I tested this so that I had a fully charged headset, which I used for two days at work (continuous play for 7 hours each day), and then for two days at home (approximately 2 hours each day), not recharging it any way during that time. I used Bluetooth and ANC all the time. On the fourth day it started to beep and warn about low battery. Charging time is approximately 2 hours.
It was a pleasant surprise to find out that BH-905i really has that 10 meter reception range if nothing is blocking the line of sight. While some other headsets start to lose connection when couple of meters away, this is not the case with BH-905i. So, you really can move around at home while listening the music.
BH-905i is quite expensive headset, but due to it comfortable structure, good noise canceling and long battery life, I think it is worth it. Especially, if you love to listen music.
