by alfatehhabbal I did a full review Youtube. Great battery & sound
I bought these headphones 4 months ago and I love them!
The battery life on this thing is huge, it lasts weeks without needing to charge. The NFC One Touch works perfectly with my Xperia SL and the sound quality is really good, not the best, but I would give it 8 out of 10.
The volume isn't crazy loud but it's enough. I wish it had a little better dynamic sound and a little more bass, but for the music I listen to it's crystal clear. I do recommend these headphones but not at this price... I got them for half the price on eBay :D
I did a full review video of these headphones on YouTube and I mention every feature about these headphones and everything you need to know
Check it out please :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by sleepyguy Great headphones!
I looked at the reviews here and ordered it through an airline's frequent flier program, but felt compelled to add my two cents here because of the two 1-star reviews. Although it offers no audiophile quality and there is a considerable boost to bass, overall sound quality is very good. Bluetooth reception is exceptional: in a 4,000 square foot home with two floors, cutoff occurs only at the far corners when the phone is located on the other floor. Yes, there are intermittent "clicks" when used in places with high density of people (and their portable devices), but that is expected as Bluetooth operates on the unlicensed 2.4GHz band where Wi-Fi, cordless phones, baby monitors, etc. also operate. With that in mind, take the 1-star review of "Very, very disappointing product" with a grain of salt. Either the reviewer received a lemon, or the 2.4GHz band was rather congested in his home (and owning a truck-load of other Sony gadgets does not change that). The other 1-star review made me scratch my head: "smartphones" and tablets in general are charged through a USB cable, so the reviewer should have at least one charger with a USB connector already, and there are plenty of them available for sale on Amazon and eBay, not to mention Best Buy.
I would have seriously considered MDR-10RBT, if I could order one through the airline's frequent flier program (had some miles expiring in a couple of weeks). But I am very happy with DR-BTN200 for what it is. In fact, I ordered a second one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KC22 Great sound .....
As compared to my favourite Samsung ear buds I’m quite impressed .... very nice stereo separation and bass is richer. No wire is a real treat not to have to deal with. Volume, skip, back and pause buttons on the right “muff” work great (on my Sony tablet) and are more useful than i was expecting. Battery level LED blink keeps you aware of its charge level. They are super light and comfortable and i can wear glasses while listening with no problem. Charges on a PC or any USB charger.
I was able to easily connect to a Sony Tablet and Motorola HD Razr without issue. I’m not sure about how seamlessly it will switch between the two after re-boots occur etc but so far individual connection is easy.
Given that this is an entry level Bluetooth Headset I’m impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Canadianraptor Very, very disappointing product
Firstly, I have a Sony HX750 55" HD TV, a matching Sony sound system with wireless subwoofer, a PS3, a 24" Vaio all-in-one computer and a 16.4" Sony Vaio laptop. So far so good with everything. Not boasting, I just like Sony products! So I though next up would be a "nice" pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones and I decided to try the DR-BTN 200 ones which had a 4 star rating! Yikes what a disappointment. Pairing them to my iPad 3 and IPod 3, no problem, a quick connection. Encouraging! So I started to use them. , I like to read a lot and use the iPad 3 for ebooks. Whilst reading I like to listen to iTunes Playlists I've set up on the iPad for Classical, Soundtrack or Rock music depending on my mood! So off I went reading with classical soundtracks playing. I started the first track and during it I had a "dead spot", i.e. the music stopped for about 1 sec. then returned! I continued on and for every single track the same thing happened with dead spots ranging from about 1/2 to 2 secs! I tried the soundtracks, then the Rock, SAME PROBLEM. I tried it on the iPod, SAME PROBLEM. So to test I used both sets of good quality "corded" Sony NC Headphones I have - NO PROBLEMS with either device! I then tried the iPad and iPod just on their own speakers - NO PROBLEMS. I then connected my iPad (no headphones) wirelessly to my Apple TV and mirrored iTunes and played the playlists back through my Sony TV and Sound System - PERFECT SOUND! Next up was to connect the Headphones to my Vaio PC to charge them to ensure that it wasn't a power problem, i.e. that sitting in the store for weeks hadn't affected the charge/quality. So fully charged I did everything again - SAME DAMNED DROP-OFF PROBLEM! I So after 2 weeks of frustration, I then called Sony Canada Support - USELESS, I told the guy my problems and basically all he could do was blame the IPad and iPod and I asked him why? No explanation! I even think at one point, but can't be 100% sure, that he whispered under his breath to himself , when I asked him a further question, "God God!", I assume implying that I was a nuisance! So I quickly ended my call,. Next task, return these useless headphones for a full refund! After this experience I'll try another brand likely Bose. Not hot on Sony Canada Support now either!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nigwhyrito DR-BTN200/WHITE pair - NO mute button
The headphones work perfectly the sound quality is nice and clear. The NFC functions great with my blackberry storm.
The volume is just right, They do hurt my ears a little bit but thats just because i'm breaking them in. Normally after 2 hours of wear it hurts a little. Everyone i demoed to wants a pair. One feature is missing. MUTE !! you cannot mute the microphone when a call comes in. Yep the other party will hear you going to the bathroom lol. If you could mute microphone then these would get a 100%. Instead they recieve a 95%. I like the fact I can control my music. though I think they made the buttons backward. the one that by instinct you would push for next track is actually previous track. Again I love them. Paired with my sony HWS-BTA2W bluetooth transmitter/reciever I now have wireless headphones for my TV and can take a call while watching tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by caliberbob Function perfectly!!!
I am a contractor working with chopsaws, skilsaws, compressors, etc. so there is a decent amount of noise all day. I bought these because I wear ear protectors anyways and I was looking into getting some headphones with a bluetooth wireless feature so I could listen to my music library as well as pandora and iheart radio etc.
I pulled these out of the box and was using them in literally 5 minutes. Super easy to set up. They don't block out noise as well as ear muffs because they don't completely cover my ear, but they are better than nothing. You can answer calls without grabbing your phone, and with my iPhone I was able to make a call just by pressing the "phone" button and telling Siri to call someone. The mic works surprisingly well as I had no issues hearing or talking to people on multiple phone calls.
Reception wasn't the best but that could be because I was walking between a bunch of walls in a house and I had my phone charging outside the whole time. One thing I did like is the battery life on these is nearly four times as good as some of the ones you'll find online at about the same price. Oh, and the NFC feature, as far as I can tell, does not work with iPhones FYI.
Overall I'm happy. Volume is good, sound is clear, and they were comfortable to wear all day even with a hat on. No need to spend hundreds of dollars for fancy ones that have rappers' names on them. These work awesome! Thanks Sony!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bondue Awesome portability
I have been using the headset for about a week now without any problems whatsoever.
First of all I want to say that the sound curve for these headphones is quite flat, meaning that they don't distort the music so much. They also respond really well to any equalizer you might use on your computer/android which is awesome for some genres where you want that extra bass.
Overall I have had no problems in conversations on my cellphone and the other part can here me just fine.
The NFC pairing makes it really quick to change which device you want to use it with, I can easily switch between my nexus 7 and HTC one thanks to that, and the Multipoint connection allows it to stay connected to two devices which allows one of them to take over at any point as well. Really practical!
There are a few bad things I can think of and one is that when the battery is dead you can't use the headphones until they are charged due to the lack of a 3,5mm port but then again, these are made for bluetooth and they do that really well.
The other bad thing is that you can't really use them together with glasses because they add some pressure to the ears and makes it uncomfortable to use together with glasses.
Besides those two points I would say that it's a buy for anyone in need of a lightweight, long life and good sound headset!
I will give it 4 stars out of 5 because they are a bit expensive but other than that really good.
