All phone manufactures also provides specific Bluetooth support depending on the hardware and operating system that are in use and interacting. You probably will be allowed to use any Bluetooth device with your phone. However, the device may not be fully compatible or perform as you expect it to be. Also the Bluetooth version supported by your phone and your headphone may not match. Sony Xperia SP uses Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology. You may try using Stereo Bluetooth headset SBH20 or SBH80, which should be compatible to your phone. There could be few other headsets which could go well with your phone but ideally it is better if you could use a Sony supported headset.

If you have a problem with the sound from your Bluetooth headphones when using it on Sony Xperia SP but it has good sound when used on Samsung Galaxy S3, I think the problem would have to be the Bluetooth compatibility. You see, with Samsung Galaxy S3, it supports Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, EDR, and aptX support while with Sony Xperia SP it supports Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP support.

Though they both support Bluetooth 4.0, they don’t have the same Bluetooth features. Since both phones support Bluetooth A2DP, your headphone is probably using Bluetooth EDR or aptX for enhancements which are not present on the other phone. You cannot fix that since your headphone supports newer features of Bluetooth 4.0.
