Sony Ericsson W800i / K750 HPM-70 handsfree update

In an earlier post, I mentioned my problems with the handsfree set for the W800i mobile phone. Poor build quality eventually caused its wires to break. Today, I got my replacement, and I have happy news to report:

It appears Sony Ericsson have changed the material used on the cable – it’s a lot softer and the handsfree set as a whole feels a little more solid than the previous version. The cables, especially those used on the earbud part, are still awfully thin. It’ll be interesting to see how well they hold up.

Anyway – people out there with HPM-70 problems should have them swapped for new sets. It’s basically a production defect, and the replacement kit (provided you get the “new” version) feels a lot more reliable.
