    The display on my up until now reliable MW600 Bluetooth headset no longer works. The device still powers on and I can use it to pair and listen to music but the experience is a bit crap with no caller id and track info being displayed.

    Can anyone recommend a decent alternative please?

    Caller ID, track display and the ability to use my own in-ear headphones are a must. NFC would be a bonus but not a requirement.

    I've been looking at the Sony SBH52 which looks good but a little pricey but unless someone can suggest something else, I may have to go for it.

    I use the jawbone era on my 928 lasts like long and can play music through them. They charge completely in 30-45 mins

    Thanks. Is it possible to connect stereo headphones to them and does it have an LED display?

    That's a shame. Thanks anyway though.

    Looks like it's going to have to be the Sony SBH52.

    I got the SBH52 today. It's a great looking device, paired up no problems. It's great for music and radio, but unfortunately, a few of the features only work with Android which is a bit of a shame.

    I just bought Movon Swing 2 after comparing the reviews with Cannice muses1. I will let you know how they sound. I am quite an audiophile with Klipsch X11i and Senn 595s as my daily drivers. There are so many Korean and Chinese brands which make really good quality Bluetooth 4.0 headphones. Try searching eBay and amazon. Movon Swing 2 are impossible to find but Muses1 are available at Amazon for ~60$.

    How is the SQ of SBH52?

    The SQ is ok through the default headphones on the SBH52. Not great but could be far worse.

    I just received the Movon BT headphones. I would say, I am impressed. Bluetooth 4.0 an APT-X sound great. Build quality is top notch. I just wish,1020 had APT-X built in.

    Here are some pictures I took with 1020

    The SBH52 has all of those features....and more (although as mentioned earlier, some aren't available on WP).

    I did like the MW600 but on thing I won't miss is the clip at the back which has broken a couple of times. I have been lucky enough to buy a few replacement clip and springs from a local store for a very reasonable price but it was still an inconvenience.

    The SBH52 seems incredibly well built so far....

    I don't think you can get a better bt headphone than SBH52. I just checked its functions and it is so versatile. The speaker on bt device is a cool idea. I used to own Sony SBH IS800; so I can tell you that Sony has the cleanest SQ out of all brands.

    Did you try using SBH52 with any other device? Laptop or iPhone?

    For music, stereo?

    Jabra Rox (available soon), Jabra sport (wireless), or if you prefer cans - Jabra Revo Wireless. Can't beat their warranty or customer service... great company to deal with, esp with smaller electronics. Also, their headset aspect of their product is stellar.

    Sennheiser makes a few good ones as well, but north of 150-200 bucks and higher, easy.
