The Sony Ericsson HBH-DS205 is a stereo Bluetooth headset that is designed for handling both music and calls wirelessly from a Bluetooth-enabled device.  The headset features digital signal processing technology for clear sound transmission and utilizes adaptive frequency hopping technology to reduce wireless interference.  It is an upgrade to the HBH-DS200 since it has an enhanced data rate which provides faster transmission, higher bandwidth, and lower power consumption.  It also features auto-pairing as well as automatic volume adjustment which keeps the volume loud in noisy environments.  

The HBH-DS205 features A2DP technology for wirelessly streaming music and has an audio/video remote control profile which allows the headset to control the music player functions on a phone.  It has a grey clip-on pendant design with a 3.5mm headphone jack for connecting the included earbuds.  The headset also runs on a rechargeable battery and provides a longer battery life than the HBH-DS200 of up to 8 hours of talk time or playback and up to 300 hours standby.  The HBH-DS205 has a suggested retail price of $100 and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.

I'm planning on using it as receiver in my helmet for navigation an if it works properly to make phone calls.

It has no problems to power my sennheiser hd600 headphones, and anything ells I connect to it.
The sound quality would have been good if there wasn't that resonances in the high tones (headphones independent). Still have to check of this has annything to do with the audio-source.

Battery-time:
After 2th charge: About 6:30 h - listening music (2:15 phone in pocket, the rest pc in the same or next room)
