It also allows you to connect up to 3 devices at a time as well as showing you what it’s up to through an OLED screen.
It connects easily to any device that can handle bluetooth connections but there was a hickup when I tried it on an LG Optimus. A quick Google told me that this device doesn’t take too well to Android phones. So I decided to make a short How-To explaining exactly how to do it:
- Get your MW600 and Android phone in front of you.
- Switch off the MW600 and the bluetooth on the Android.
- Switch on Bluetooth on the android device. Also make sure to set it on Discoverable. You can do this by going to Settings > Wireless & Network Settings > Bluetooth Settings > Tick next to Discoverable.
- Press and hold the power button on the MW600 for more than 5 seconds. This is where you could go wrong – when you reach three seconds the MW600 may light up and display something but don’t mind it.
- The pairing begins on both devices. Your phone will ask you whether you trust the headset – obviously tap Yes.
- If it asks for a code type in 0000.
- All’s well and you should have successfully connected your devices.
- If you press and hold the play button you can set any device to be your default music player – like your computer for instance.
- If you press and hold the call key you can set any device to handle your calls – like your Android phone.
The MW600 works beautifully with the iPhone5. Not only does it pair extremely quickly, it also supports all the buttons and touch controls. Best of all, it supports Siri! One touch of the call button on the MW600 control activates Siri in bluetooth mode. It just works.
As always, the Sone Ericsson MW600 is the best product from the SE stable that I have ever seen. I just hope they continue to manufacture the device even after the split of the two companies who designed this wonderful product.
