Appreciation of FM Radio for Sony Bluetooth Headsets

Yet another case of me pointing out a feature that I really hope Sony brings back in future.


It's been the one of the main selling points of Sony bluetooth headsets for me since the MW600 (may it rest in peace), providing me countless hours of listening to the BBC World Service when abroad or BBC Radio 4 without having to use my phone. In the case of the XA2, the SBH54 has been a godsend; enabling me to listen without the endless irritating RDS interruptions.


Needless to say, without the FM radio, I haven't seen much in terms of features that really sells the newer bluetooth headsets for me. Unsurpisingly, I still use the SBH54 and have no intent on buying the SBH56.


Maybe i'm living in the past, but I live in hope that maybe Sony will consider the joy that FM radio can bring and maybe include it in future models (not all of them, but maybe just the premium models?)
