Samsung HM3700 Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headset Brief Review

 

So I got the Samsung HM3700 Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headset for the Christmas. It’s a versatile bluetooth headset that sets it apart from traditional mono Bluetooth headset. Here is my brief review:

The headset kit comes with a regular mono Bluetooth headset (microUSB), a stereo headset with microUSB connector, a microUSB to 3.5mm convertor for use with ANY headphone, several ear clips / one T-shirt clip, and a microUSB charger.

The headset also comes with voice guide and multi-point support (upto 2 devices), and you can download Android app to use with the smartphone.

I’m paring it with my BlackBerry PlayBook. It works pretty nice. The only function it’s missing is the Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) controls, aka the previous/next song switching button. Otherwise it fits my needs exactly. The audio quality is pretty decent although BT uses lossy codec.

  1. nope.
    for calls it uses mono.
    for music it uses stereo with apt-x codec support.
    that means lossless audio via bluetooth, playing flac will be superb with these kind of bluetooth headsets. :)

  2. Nope, this particular model HM3700 does NOT support apt-x, only SBC, which is lossy compression codec. Also, you need the supported receiver in order to make apt-x work, which my PlayBook doesn't support.
