I was sent a STK’s BTHS600 Bluetooth Headset for review and as I can’t get sound working on my Windows 7 equipped Samsung Q1 UMPC I thought it would be an ideal device to pair with the headphones. Pairing the headset with the Q1 was very simple, within a couple of minutes I was up and running. The sound quality is very good, a rich sound and with the cushioned pads it cuts out a lot of the sound from the outside, you can totally get lost in the sound.

The headset is also very comfortable and could be worn for a length of time without any problems. On the Bluetooth side of the headset as I said pairing was easy but I found the volume controls were a bit hit and miss, sometimes they worked and other times they didn’t, that could be a issue with the Q1 so I will have to do some more testing before working out where the problem lies.

The multifunction button works as a play/pause button and turns the headphones on and off, the transport controls worked fine with Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center. The headphones also work with Bluetooth enabled mobile phones and you use it for talking calls as it has a built in microphone. I tested it with Skype and the audio quality was quite good, not as good as my USB mic but its useable. It comes with a USB battery charging cable
