Rated 4 out of 5
by SaintOscar Design flaw
I've been using this device for a few weeks now and I love it. It's not very user friendly with an ipad and google voice apps (like talkatone) but that's minimal for now. But the thing that bugs is the fact that the headphone jack is at the top instead of the bottom so it's not in your chin when wearing a regular t shirt. I'm not sure if the people that designed this were always wearing suits but as a tattoo artist (iamheartandsoul.com Saint Oscar) I mostly wear band shirts.
This however is the best Bluetooth headset I've used. Nothing really compares......yet.
P.s. Sony can fix this by simply reversing the clip, you guys should send me one when you do please.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lee9107 good bluetooth (could be stronger)
Clip assembly fell apart within 1st week (lost spring). it clips onto device sandwiching the spring. an older model had the spring built into the clip (which then attaches to device)
A big improvement over the Sony BT15; with sound clarity, the display, and battery life.
Volume control is sensitive. it tries to predict the way you are trying to go. BEST thing to do is to slide your finger over it slowly. (cannot move too fast or nothing will happen. NO BIG DEAL)
the sound is clear and a bit lower than the sending device (can barely notice it if not paying attention)
battery last 3.5-4 days, approx 3hrs/day

Rated 5 out of 5 by Waldhaus Great way to eliminate headphone cord clutter
I use this to listen to audio books stored on my iPhone while biking (Earphone in one ear only. I have had no problems with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrJGK good choice
I received my MW600 (no S) yesterday and after charging it for 8 hours, as signaled by manufacturer, I started using it. (Weak point - I wanted to try it immediately)
It is easy to pair the device with cellphones (mine a Nokia, my son's a Samsung) or my notebook.
The volume and sound quality are really good. You can control the volume from the device or the source. (The loudness can be very soft or very high, if you like loud music)
While using the MW600 with my computer I can have it paired with my cellphone and thus answer any incoming call.
(Another "con" the MW600[S] is not sold in my country)
To sum up, good choice. 9/10

Rated 3 out of 5 by Smthtalker This item has left me feeling just blah!
To begin with, I have previously owned this exact model on 2 other occasions and was very happy and satisfied with the other 2. Obviously else I wouldn't have purchased this 3rd time. But there are 2 very distinct changes within this model that have me unhappy. First is the volume level of the radio, I know this probably sounds like a gripe and shouldn't be that big of a deal but it literally is at a level of just background noise. I can literally hear everything else without a problem but have to really focus and press the earpiece in deeper to catch much of anything on the radio. But where as in previous models I could blur out everything and be within the radio and all else was background noise. And the 2nd thing and I'm not sure if maybe I just got a defective one but my left ear piece is twice as loud as the right. Other then that it's the usual great Sony craftsmanship and design.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anurag Calls drop for me
For me it connected easily with my iPhone and worked well while listening to songs, but while making calls, the call would drop after talking for 5 minutes. It was very frustating and I tried at all ranges with same result. I had MW600 and used it without any issues with my iPhone for 2 years till I lost it. not so with MW600S. I am returning this piece and going back to the older model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by esc76 Nice but low quality
Sound quality is very good. Battery lasted for many hours. Design and size are very good.
The "touch" volume control is the worst idea I have seen in an accessory. It is clumsy, inaccurate and misbehave all the time.
But the most striking thing was its durability. I never dropped the accessory. It never got wet or dusty. I treated it far gentler than my phone but it lasted less than a year with very low usage. It started to behave strange, loosing the connection with the phone and changing the songs by itself, until it finally refuse to work.
The days when a Sony product was a grant of quality are so gone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Yoyolantic I may try a different model next time.
I have had this product for two years, and I like it. I use it while jogging and cycling, and it works. However, after the first year, the clip broke, so I can no longer clip the device to my shirt. (I am quite careful with the product, so it may not be that strong.)
Good: sound, volume control, length of cord, length of battery life
Bad: screen in daylight (can't see it), controls (difficult to use without looking at them. I have to stop biking or jogging to change options on device.)
