Sony DR-BT30 Bluetooth review

Opinions vary on comfort and usability, but sound is decent, with reasonable bass and detail. Tested at £100.00

What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Sound decent, with reasonable bass weight but you can buy better sound for less.

These small Bluetooth Sonys use on-ear speakers held in place with over-ear clips, and joined by a thin retractable cord. Opinions vary on both their comfort and usability, but they sound decent, with reasonable bass weight and musical detail. That said, you can buy better sound for fewer pounds.
