What we like about the SBH80 earbuds
Sound quality is on-par with upper market wireless earbuds.
The Sony SBH80 has aptXTM audio enhancement. This high-quality audio codec is designed to deliver a flawless wireless audio experience, if your device is compatible.
AptXTM delivers 350KB/S Audio wirelessly, ensuring you get a really good sound out of your earbuds.

A High fidelity microphone is part of the package with these Sony wireless earbuds.
The HD Voice Technology lets you make calls through bluetooth, while the person you’re talking will enjoy a good sound quality.
Doubling the frequency, HD Voice will fade out or cut all background noises and make it easier to listen to the voice on a call.
This technology is used on Sony Xperia phones;
Bluetooth Multipoint support is a nice addition.

You will not have to reconnect or reconfigure the earbuds every time you want to switch from your phone to a laptop, or another audio streaming device.
