Pros Noise canceling, caller ID, dedicated mute button
Cons Call answering, doesnt appear to support phone book
Summary I've owned a BT250 for about 6-7 months and love it, its comfortable, easy to use, and the sound quality is decent. The reason I bought the BT800 is for noise canceling, which it does extremely well from what I've been told by people on the other end of my phone conversations when I ask them if they can hear the traffic noise or wind noise. Its not as comfortable as the BT250, at least I havent gotten used to it after 1 week of wearing it, and I used to wear my 250 all day. The dedicated mute button is great on conference calls when you need to speak with someone else in the room without having to mute the conversation from your phone. I use this piece with the Blackberry 7100t and after the initial pairing process I've had no problems keeping the headset paired to the phone (I just reconnect the headset from the phones settings menu). My biggest problem with this phone is the delay in the time from recieving a call to when the headset answers it. I've gotten it down to three rings but early on there were several calls that went over 5 rings and a few that I even missed. Dont believe the "1 tap" to answer literature, I have to tap this sucker repeatedly (this may also be a flaw in my specific headset). You can also place calls from the headset which I use often, but another gripe I have is that the headset wont (or I havent figured out how to get it to) recognize my phone book, so you only see phone numbers when you recieve calls not the name of the person calling you...
thats my 2 cents
Pros Confortable,stylish,good features and sound
Cons None for the time being...
Summary I had a very good experience with Motorola's HS 810 BT headset so I was a bit pessimistic on buying a different headset to pairing it with my mobile phone. BT800 is not a regular Bluetooth headset.It's really an accessory that is very helpfull if you carry your phone on the belt. As wearing it on and off is so easy,I just put it on top of my desk or in the car and as call are coming I can clearly view the callers ID and decide weather to answer or not the incoming call, without the need to hold the phone.Sound is very clear and people said that they can listen to me very clearly as well. Voice dialling is better that with the HS810 - allways at the first time, despite any conditions. The jog wheel is helpfull,the battery status display is helpfull as well and the abbility to be charged through a computers USB port, its very very good.I had no problem whatsoever to pairing it with my Motorola V550 and all the functions work flawlessly.Besides, we can "upgrade" the headset through Jabra's website via the USB cable.All in all a very impressive accessory to anyone's moblie phone.
Pros Looks good, sound is clear, easy to setup
Cons Takes 8 seconds to receive call from phone
Summary A great headset ruined by inadequate testing and some compatibility issues.
I hope that PalmOne and Jabra are deep in discussion about how to resolve this problem.
Pros The new kid on the block. Great sound quality from the point of view of people you dial or call you. Fool-proof pairing with V710. Neat features like vibrate/ring tones.
Cons Less than seemless Bluetooth integration. Prolonged delay in answering calls. Inconsistent Answer/Call buttons.
Summary As many tech-geeks, I was anxiously awaiting the Jabra BT810 with continuous salivation after reading about it 6months before it's continuously delayed release. But, as with most things in life waited for with great anticipation, it was all for naught and followed by disappointment.
Having had the Motorola HS8910, I was most anxious about the much hyped improvement in sound quality with the BT810. And true to their promise, the Jabra does a superior job in canceling out background noise so only you are heard by the caller.
But, after the HS8910, I was disappointed by the need to continuously have the phone find the headset every time I wanted to use it and the BT810 had been turned-off. With the HS8910, opening the boon would immediately result in pairing and transfering of the call to the head piece. A very useful feature.
In addition, there is a delay with both answering a call and actually hearing the caller of about 6-8seconds. In part complicated by the fact that the button to receive calls on the BT810 headset sometimes does not respond to depression, which also makes calling difficult since it sometimes does not respond and pressing too hard results in the 'Redial' function.
At present, I'm leaning towards returning the Jabra BT810 in favor of either staying with the HS8910 or trying the Tekkeon EZTalker Mini. I'm torn since the sound quality is substantially improved over the HS8910, but the negatives are considerable and detract from any improvement over the HS8910.Updated
Just wanted to give an up-date and inform everyone that after tolerating the BT800 for an additional day, I returned it and happily started using the Motorola HS8910.
Pros The DSP is increadable I could be listening to music while riding in the car with the windows down and when I asked how I sounded the person on the other end would ask if I have left the house yet
Cons HEAVY!!! UNCOMFORTABLE after just a few minutes!!!!
