We have all in the past heard about the flagship phones from Nokia and all of those have been covered here on Fonearena but about two and a half months ago Nokia had announced a new stereo bluetooth headset-The BH-905. Nokia had called this headset a Flagship headset. So to check out what makes this headset different from their earlier products that this has been given the flagship status we checked out the product sites and thought to share this with you as BH-905 can be a great accessory with your mobile phone or that matter any portable device having A2DP bluetooth support or a 3.5mm plugin jack.
This headset as described by Nokia on their Conversations blog is “a different beast that has been engineered and crafted into what can only be described as a flagship headphone accessory“. The headset is high on active noise cancellation technology so much so that Nokia call themselves the technology leaders, the first company in the world to bring this technology to the consumers. So how is the Noise cancellation technology in this product different from other products in the market?? well the very same question arose in my mind and here’s how it cancels noise via its Active Noise Cancellation.
The BH-905 uses eight out of the ten microphones(four in each ear cup, highlighted in red in the pic above) on board to cancel out the noise around you in its quest to make you achieve Music Nirvana. The larger number of microphones on board ensures better and symmetrical noise cancellation, thus enhancing your overall listening experience.
The remaining two of its microphones(highlighted in green) serve the purpose that a microphone normally does i.e. to capture your voice and transfer it other end when you are on a call, while ensuring that the two microphones cancel the background noise so that the person at the other end of the call hears you crystal clear.
Nokia is pushing this product to be used with not only their handsets but also almost ever where. They have bundled the headset along with Extension Audio Cable to allow you to use it with any 3.5mm plugin jack. Also packed in the box are an adapter for airplane and an adapter 6.3 mm home stereo. These bundled adapters make the BH-905 a truly versatile product.
The headset has blind usage i.e. the call buttons are on one side and the music buttons on the other so one can use the device without having to look at it.
Check out the product video from Nokia:
The headset has a 600mAh battery on board powering it to a maximum Talk time 24 hours with bluetooth turned on and 15 hours with bluetooth and active noise cancellation turned on. The headset shall last for about 25 hours while listening to music via bluetooth, 16 hours if you use bluetooth along with active noise cancellation. If you plan to use the headset with a wire connecting it to the player, along with active noise cancellation then you can squeeze 40 hours of playtime from this device and the best part is that you can use it for hands-free phone calls and music listening (without active noise cancellation) even with empty battery (wired connection)
Well as we all know that high end technology does come with high cost, so the BH-905 is no exception and it shall cost you around Rs 20,000
