Pros Comfort level, easy set up, and sound quality.
Cons Hard to reach volume buttons and two piece plug.
Summary For those of us who wear eyeglasses (wonder if manufacturers take us into consideration when testing their products), a lot of this headsets are hard to wear, sometimes even uncomfortable. My wife (who doesn't wear eyeglasses) and I both purchased Motorola phones and the Motorola HS850 headset. While she was able to wear the headset with no problems/complaints, I could not, because of the issue of it being to loose on your ear and of course the eyeglasses did not help the cause.
This was all remedied by the Jabra BT250v. It has a better hold on your ear and my eyeglasses don't get in the way. I have a few pair of eyeglasses and some of them are bulkier than others. Even with my prescription sunglasses (which are bulky) the BT250v is comfortable on my ear. I also found (this being my first time dealing with any bluetooth technology) that the sound quality is excellent. I hear people clearly and from my questions, they hear me clearly as well. Distance away from the phone does not seem to be a problem. I haven't tested it at 30ft, but have at about 15 and it works fine. The set up was easy. However I did have an issue with the buttons being behind my ear, unlike the HS850 whose buttons are on the side. As for the vibration feature, I don't use it. the headset is on my ear when in use and not in my pocket. I turn it off and don't find a use for it, but some others may.
Overall a great first experience with a bluetooth headset. I recommend it to those who wear eyeglasses. Yes it looks a bit star trekish, but you will be happy with your purchase.
Pros Very comfortable
Cons Will pick up wind noise on windy day
Summary I had a BT200 which was good but broke and then I purchased the BT250V which is superior in functionality. Lost my BT250V and bought the BT500; big mistake. If you like sounding like you are talking into a glass and the same hearing people talk to you, then the BT500 is the headset for you. I purchased another BT250V to replace the returned BT500; without a doubt, this is the unit to buy if you want your headset to sound like a land line.
Pros Great sound. very comfortable, lightweight, great design, and easy to pair with your phone
Cons Satisfactory battery life.
Summary Aside from the satisfactory battery life this is in my opinion the best BT headset I have ever owned or tried. I have tried all the Motorola's because some of my friends have Moto headsets. I have tried out some of the Plantronics and Ericsson's and even some other Jabra models and those others don't cut it. The Jabra Bt250v is far the best one I have tried and now own. I heard some negative things about the BT500 that recently came out. Whats nice about this model is the design. I like how it fits my ear and stays secure. I tried on the 500 model which is similar but thinner. In a lot of cases with electronic devices you would think thinner is better like the Razr was the best thing to happen for the phone world. But not in the case for the BT500. It didn't feel as secure as the BT250v. The controls are very easy to use. It's very comfortable on your ear. The sound is amazing, louder than using my handset or other BT headsets. Out of all the ones I tried pairing with my phone just to experiment trying the 250V was the easiest, even a five year old kid could do it. The gel piece is what makes the sound so great. Also other models on the market you have to disassemble bigger parts of the headset to switch the headset to fit each ear. with the 250V all you have to do is swivel the gel piece. Overall a fabolous headset.
"Worth a Try"on by macnz
Pros easy to wear, erogomically discrete, does not fall out or heat up, clear audio pick-up, easy to hear,battery life good
Cons toggle button for functions a bit hit and miss, ear gels not easily replaced
Summary had several headsets and phones. this is one of the better ones. Great bargin as there are the BT500 and 800 now available.
My first one went kaput after 2 weeks. Can testify the battery can keep this unit vibrating for several hours! After trying out the 500 and 800, decided to give a second try and no problems. Sucker for the little blue led. Does not strain the ear or heat up with extended use. Pairing is straight forward. Comes with separate power charger which I prefer than charging via the laptop which seems to be the trend these days.
Pros if working, then its fine
Cons Doesn't last for $100; don't buy Jabra product
Summary I bought a 2nd one because the 1st one didn't work (got it from Staples who wouldn't match the Verizon Wireless price ($20 less) because it wasn't even a sale price. 1st from Staples broke in 4 days; 2nd from Verizon broke in 20 days. Jabra wanted me to have to pay shipping to return it. Person on the phone was nice, but since they were making me pay shipping I just had the credit card cancel the purchase.
Quality, when working, was fair. Volume level was a little low but could hear in the car fine if the radio and A/c were off.
However, regardless, if Jabra won't stand behind their products, what good is a $100 earphone?
