Stylish and comfortable
- Stylish design, comfortable, good in-call quality
- Needs an adapter to use it with non-Nokia products
The WH-600 is a solid headset. Its performance for phone calls is above average, but audiophiles won't be impressed.
Price$ 109.99 (AUD)
Nokia's latest stereo headset is stylish and comfortable, and it offers reasonable sound quality to boot. The headset also performs well for phone calls, featuring in-line volume and call controls as well as a microphone.
The WH-600 features a stylish black silver and chrome finish. The over-the-head design features an adjustable headband, and the soft, cushioned ear cups are comfortable to wear for long periods. Unlike many other similar designs, the ear cups don't leave your ears particularly hot after prolonged use.
The WH-600 works with any device that uses a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, but Nokia includes two adaptors in the sales package — one to work with any Nokia device with a 2.5mm Nokia AV connector and the other to work with any non-Nokia device using a 3.5mm headphone jack. We're not sure exactly why a 3.5mm jack adapter is needed when the jack for the WH-600 is 3.5mm in the first place, but without this adapter, audio quality on an iPod or non-Nokia device isn't up to scratch.
For handling phone calls, the WH-600 does a reasonable job. The in-line volume controls, call handling button and microphone are attached to the wire, and although its positioning looks a little low for best audio response, we found outgoing audio excellent. There is also no issue with incoming sound, which is loud and clear at its highest volume level.
The WH-600 is best described as solid when it comes to regular music listening. We tested the headphones with the N82 and were impressed with the bass response, as well as the clarity and crispness of our music. We also noted that the headphones don't distort at higher volume levels. On the other hand, instrumental separation isn't the best, as background elements tended to disappear and were difficult to make out. Overall, the sound isn't audiophile-quality, but it is much better than what you'll get out of the standard earphones bundled with most phones and music players.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
