REVIEW: Sony Ericsson HBH-PV715 Bluetooth Headset

Andrew Duong September 9, 2009 12


Just recently, we recieved a Sony Ericsson HBH-PV715 Bluetooth Headset in the mail. A great headset unit for daily usage at a great price. Let me start off by saying that more and more provinces and states are banning cellphones while driving including my province (Ontario) which will have the “no talking while driving” law in effect around fall, as well as the state of California which banned the usage of a cellular device while driving back in July 2008. We figured it’d be a great time to do a Bluetooth headset review and help you decide what device you want.


The Sony Ericsson HBH-PV715 is a simple bluetooth headset using Bluetooth 2.0 to connect to cellular devices. Pairing was also simple and the steps were easy to follow. We tested this on a BlackBerry 8900, Nokia 5800, Sony Ericsson w580i and iPhone 3G and had no problems connecting at all. We also paired it with my PlayStation 3 for online and it was successful at doing so.


Call quality of the headset was great but it was not able to block out wind and other loud noises within the city. I also felt that I sometimes had to speak louder then usual for the other person to hear clearer. If your working in an office or leaving this in your car. Then its the device for you. Cheap, yet comfortable with the 2 sizes of ear “hook” selections. While testing this on my PlayStation 3. I found that it could pickup all the sound that was being played back in the speakers while playing online and combat games with loud shooting noises. I also noticed that sometimes it would echo, making it hard for players to hear me.


Battery life on this was beyond my expectations. It says it could do 700 hours of standby time and 10 hours of talk-time. This could be somewhat true. When you are connected but not making a call, the device goes into a standby/sleep mode which saves a load of battery life. I have yet to charge it from when I received it last week.

The Sony Ericsson HBH-PV715 Bluetooth Headset features are

  • Removable ear hooks and necklace
  • Auto pairing and automatic volume adjustment
  • Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR: clear sound and reliable connection
  • Available in Black and White
  • 700hr standby time, 10hr talktime

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks?
