SBH80 disappointing

I was so looking forward to SBH80 and when i finally got it i am disappointed. Firstly there are no battery meter shown on iOS devices which is such a common feature on BT headsets now.

 

Secondly when paired with two devices while listening to audio on one device if there are any notifications or sounds played on the second device it causes the audio stream to stutter and break on the first device. It also doesn't pair with both devices when turn on so you have to manually go to the second device and pair it in the BT menu.

 

I am using iPhone and iPad so i guess no iOS love from Sony.

Hi and welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

I'm not sure about how iOS devices generally works when it comes to showing accessory battery level in phone. But perhaps there is an app for this on app store?

 

Regarding the stuttering problem could you please send me your details in a PM, and I will forward this.

Make a relevant topic and include the following.

Phone nr:
E-mail:

IMEI nr:

Re: SBH80 disappointing

iOS devices usually automatically display the battery level, if the BT device supports it.  My Plantronics Backbeat Go displays the battery level on the iOS device.  No app required.

 

I am using the SBH80 with my personal iPhone and company Android handset, so I can listen to my music (on my iPhone) and still answer either personal or work calls.

 

I'm also disappointed that the second device isn't automatically connected.  Every other multipoint device I've used (such as my Bose handsfree headset, my old Jabra headset and my Parrot car handsfree kit) automatically connects to both devices.

George,

 

yes it works quite easily with SIRI. Simply activate SIRI using the iphone home key or the headset dial button and Siri appaears asking for your input.

 

works quite nicely

Re: SBH80 disappointing

Hi, Johan. Please can you confirm if there are any plans to add functionality to SBH-80 to display battery level on an iOS device (either via an app, widget or Bluetooth battery level indicator icon)? There don't appear to be any third party apps that do this.
