I’m not a proper audiophile, but I do really appreciate good quality sound that’s uninterrupted by outside noise. Thanks to the crew over at WOMWorld, we’ve received the daddy of all stereo bluetooth headsets to try out, the Nokia BH-905 with active noise cancellation.
I’ve been exciting about the BH-905s ever since hearing about them in June. Possibly on paper, it is the best stereo bluetooth headset.
- 10 microphones, 8 for active noise cancellation, 2 for picking up speech
- Can be used wireless as standard, or you can even attach audio cables to use with devices that don’t have bluetooth. (Great for saving battery too – you can listen via BH-905s when the batteries are dead)
- Comes with 3.5mm, 2.5mm, 1/4″ and aeroplane jack adapters, as well as extension cable.
- Pretty long battery life, up to 40h with noise cancellation when wired, or 16h wireless [though must see what they're like myself]
I got to try them ever so briefly in September during a OneDotZero detour to the Nokia Flagship Store (R.I.P.). Above right is WOMWorld’s Robbie modelling the BH-905.
But now I can have a proper go at trying them out. Here’s our unboxing of the BH-905, photos and video:
“Listenin via nokia bh-905 is a little like the first time I tried sound isolation earphones. Stunning how it blots out outside sound!” a tweet sent whilst listening to music from the N900 on the BH-905. They’re also pretty loud.
