    The DS220 is almost identical to the DS200. Just black instead of silver. You can use any headphones you want with it.

    It supposedly has a feature that will auto-adjust the volume based on ambient noise, but no volume buttons.

    The DS220/DS200 were clearly designed to be used with the phone nearby. That won't work for everyone, but it works great for me. It keeps the DS220 clutter-free.

    congrats on your purchase though =)

    Personally I think its great. However, if they added volume buttons with the option to skip tracks by holding the volume would make this an amazing product.

    Got 2 specific questions.

    1> Coming from using the HBH-DS970 + K790a with the phone in my pocket ( I stand under 6') if I have the phone in my left hand and its behind my butt/back the signal cuts out. If I'm walking with my hands swaying also drops in & out. Does the DS220 exhibit the same issue? PS I have no clue if body salts is a possibility.

    2> How can you Play, skip and pause music playback on your K850 if the music app is minimized?

    Thanks. Also any update on the mini review on full out battery life?

    that's... interesting. i wonder how well it actually works.

    so i must ask... BART much? (seeing that you're from/live in the city.) care to test if you do? that'd be absolutely epic. it's not all that important, just really really curious, since i'll be BART-ing regularly next semester.

    hmmm..the headphones that come with the ds200 and ds220 are different...the ds220 comes with the in ear-headphones(sub par)...while the ds200 comes with even crappier earbud headphones

    anyways YES YOU CAN CONTROL THE VOLUME. JUST HOLD DOWN THE play/pause button it will gradually go up and down.....u let go when u find the right volume

    Good to know about the volume control!

    regarding headphones, at least with the DS220/DS200 you can use any headphones you want. That was the main reason I bought it.

    1) I have held my phone in my hands, had it in my pocket and i have yet to hear any skipping. For myself it is just as good as the hpm 70's (the one that comes with the w810).

    2) With my k790 you could skip tracks by just holding one of the volume/zoom buttons. Not sure if it is the same with the 850.

    Do you guys get like a 1 sec. or a 1/2 sec. delay at the start of the song when you skip tracks?

    No delay at all. I hear the absolute beginning of the song when skipping tracks.

    1> No cut outs at all. I am actually really amazed at the bluetooth coverage this thing has. It probably is the best bluetooth handsfree device I have ever used, in terms of coverage.

    2> As mentioned, holding down the volume buttons for about 2 seconds will skip tracks, even if the keylock has engaged.

    Just have to re-emphasize how light-weight this thing is. My typical wearing pattern is to clip the unit to my collar. I almost forget I am wearing it.

    Almost forgot that last question. Been using it for about 5 hours of off/on use. Display is showing 2 bars still.

    I think they may be legit. It's possible they are made to match the 'hearty red' W910.
