Hey all,

Thanks to WOMWorld/Nokia, I have the Nokia BH-905i which is a Bluetooth headset sporting features like Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and wired support so it will work with virtually every device out there!


I’ll start off with how I first saw the device, and what you get with it.

NOTE: This is a trial unit which has been passed around a fair few times so a couple of bits have gone missing along the way.

Box Contents

As I mentioned, the unit I got has passed through several hands, so not everything is there, but here is a full list of what you should get (country specific):

  • Nokia Bluetooth Stereo Headset BH-905i
  • Carrying Case (CP-511)
  • 3.5mm AV Cable [~1.2m] (CA-143U)
  • 3.5mm iPhone Cable [~1.2m] (CA-182U)
  • Extension Cable [~1.7m] (CA-144U)
  • 2.5mm AV Cable (AD-52)
  • Standard 3.5mm Jack (AD-63)
  • Airplane Jack (AD-71)
  • 6.3mm Home Stereo Jack (AD-70)
  • Voip Adapter (AD-77)
  • Charger (AC-15)
  • User guide


The headset supports some nice features, which you would expect and some that you probably always wanted. First off you can choose to get it in either Ice or Black with matching adapters.


You can connect to the headset by one of 2 ways, either Stereo Bluetooth 2.1 (with enhanced data rate) or wired, both of which produce the same quality of audio, so with the exception of some very basic phones, you can connect to almost anything. Using the Bluetooth does have the disadvantage of draining your headset and phone/device battery, but with an incredible 15h minimum talk time with ANC enabled, or an extra 9 hours without, you will have a long time between charges.

Active Noise Cancelling (ANC)

Nokia claim that the ANC is able to block out 99% of noise, and in the tests that I did, it does seem to live up to that. One thing I did notice is that it only cancels out the noise, and allows speech to pass through which means that if someone tried to talk to you while the headphones are on, you can still hear them…assuming that your music isn’t blasting too loud!! This is also great when you are on the train, and trying to listen to the stop announcements.

I did try to record some sound samples, but when I went to play them back after, it turns out they did not record, so for now you will have to take my word for how much of a difference these make!

If you ever wanted to know how it does this, it has 8 mic’s on the outside of the headphones, which detect the background noise, and it instantly plays an inverted signal back through the speakers which cancel out the noise. As well as this, there are two mic’s inside which detect your speech and run through an Advanced Digital Signal Processor for clear communication.


The sound quality on these headsets is great, and you would expect them to be at the £165 price tag (RRP)!

If I’m honest I have not used many high end headphones, but it’s been a long time since I have heard my music the way it was intended to be heard, and the BH-905i definitely do that, making the listening experience that much better.

One thing on this BH-905i which is different to the original BH-905, is that the bass does not seem as loud, but this is because you are now able to change the bass level by pressing the multi-function key (when you are not on a call) and it will beep once, twice or three times depending on the level.

These are some great headphones, and do exactly what they are supported to. They have a solid build, quality feel, a huge battery life, great features and will connect to almost anything from phones to planes, with the included connectors. If you are a music lover and are thinking of getting a new set of headphones, I would seriously consider these, the only downside I can think of is the price, it is quite expensive, but then again, if you look at some similar alternatives, like those made by Bose,  you are looking at over 60% more in price (£270+) for something that is 20% heavier, and has less features.

Personally, I’ll be honest, these headphones are not for me, and the only reason for that is because I hate wearing headphones with a head band (doesn’t go with my spiky hear!), so if Nokia were to bring out a version of these with just the earphones separate, I would definitely buy it (like a more advanced version of the BH-505).
