We have the Sony Ericsson HBH-PV740 for you in the test:

Sony Ericsson has the hang of it: after already the HBH-PV715 in the final test with sensational endurance values shone, no nakedness is also the HBH-PV740 for 75 Euro and coupled with the Nokia 6300, with almost 1000 hours phenomenal standby operation leaves a very good impression.

While the PV715 influence was still noticeably from the registered mobile phone proves the PV740 Konstanz and remains virtually undeterred from the mobile phone.

Design and operation

The small display will show the battery and power status of the headset and missed a fashionable flair to the overall elegant looking mobile companion. Also the small buttons are visually an enrichment for the convenience of the headset but not useful, because the multi button almost flat in the housing and is thus only after a period of acclimatization safely operate.

Speaking of safe: The PV740 sits first on the ear, need more than rhythmical movements of the head, to bring it out from the rest. In particular, the optional bracket is highly recommended for a safe feeling during a telephone conversation.


The galante button in the ear with noise-free, pleasant sound and remarkable voice quality shone on the test ride in the car. Compliments to the engineers!
