"The DSP is worth some of the hassle"4.0 starson by kmichaelshea
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
