Bluetooth ® Wireless Sports Headset
OUTSTANDING! Better than advertised. WOW
I purchased the headphones for exercising without the annoying cord dangling and they are super comfortable during a run. What surprised me is how often I now use my earphones (headset) to take phone calls. Last night, the reason I'm writing this review, I had my headphones on and was able to talk having a perfectly uninterrupted conversation while around 30' from my phone. At one point I stopped half way through a sentence and said "wait a minute! were having a conversation and i'm no where near my phone!" These are magic. I LOVE them.
~get them you will be WOWED.

So I went into my local Sony Store looking for these in particular. I saw they were a new product on the website and they were exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something to run and be active with that was also wireless and sounded great in addition to being behind the ear design which I like. Now when I visited the store the salesperson directed me to the MDR-10RBT headphones saying he personally owned them and they were his favorite wireless model from Sony. I was very tempted but then realized I already owned the Bose QC 2's which are very similar minus the wireless and I never use those in public because they're too big for my taste. So I picked up the blue AS700BT and brought them home and tried them out on my new Z1S phone. Greatest phone ever by the way but that’s another review. They charged super fast and when I sampled them with Digitally Imported Premium running at 256K I was really impressed with the quality. There was a richness to the lower frequency and higher clarity that made me not regret the buy. I have yet to see how they hold up but initial testing was positive. Throw in the added mic and waterproof construction that can handle sweat and splash and you got something pretty awesome. Some could argue they're too expensive for what you get since the MDR-10RBT are $199 and top shelf but these are way more functional IMHO. Last thing they paired in like 5 seconds with the NFC feature which was really delightful. So if you're looking for great wireless headphones to workout with or just be out and about with I give the AS700's my vote. Get the MDR-10RBT's if you're looking to stay in or want something for the office. Of course then I'd probably go Bose QC.
