Sony Ericsson DS220 headset design
We tested the red and black version of the Sony Ericsson DS220. The headset is also available in an entirely black version and a brown one. The Bluetooth headset DS220 of Sony Ericsson has a cylindrical shape with a clip on the end to attach the headset to your clothes. Its trendy and playful design make this the perfect designer headset for the younger consumer. Three buttons are available to operate the Bluetooth headset and besides that a small LCD screen offers information about the battery status among other things. The topside has a connection for plugging in the included 3.5mm earplugs. A battery charger, not included, can be connected to the bottom of the headset.

Sony Ericsson DS220 pairing with a phone
Before the Sony Ericsson DS220 can be paired with a cell phone, the Bluetooth headset has to be deactivated. Pressing the on/off button of the Sony Ericsson HBH-DS220 longer than necessary for turning the headset on, the 'pairing with cell phone' sign will appear. The connecting phone has to confirm the password (0000). When the Bluetooth connection between headset and cell phone is lost, it can be reactivated by briefly turning off the Bluetooth headset and back on again. The cell phone will then get reconnected to the headset automatically.
