"Almost Flawless Performance"4.5 starson by sammycannon
Pros: All functions but one work perfectly
Cons: Call rejection feature does not work
Summary: Paired in 10 seconds to Sony Ericsson S710a with a simple click of the included stylus. Also paires through the menu but the stylus allows immediate use without with no knowledge of the menus (slick). All caller IDs work using the names assigned to the handset phonebook, otherwise the full 11 digit numbers appear and are archived in numbered order in the headset call list. Sure you can't see it on your ear but I can take it off, answer it and put it back on in the time it takes to open my phone case. The ring tones are nice and the vibrate mode is fun but unnecessary as the tones are inaudible by others. The tones can be combined with the vibration if you need a silent wake up call. The small display gets a 10 for appearance, settings, and numbers. Voice quality is better than the handset both coming and going out and the volume control is easy to find and operate. The answer/end call buttons are big and easy to operate and find with finger tabs so you can't miss them. Voice calling and call waiting functions work fine. The DSP chip does as it claims, raising the headset volume (on maximum setting)above all the noise I could create with a TV and radio blairing almost to max volume. I could clearly hear above all the noise. The flashing blue light on the mute/menu button is cool looking but you can turn it off if it's too cool. The earhook is very comfortable and I was abe to train the rubber to perfectly follow the contours of my ear. I forget it is on until my ear starts vibrating. As a pleasant suprise, there was a leather belt case included that is not even listed on the box! There is only one function that does not work. The call End button is supposed to reject incoming calls to voice mail but it completely disconnects the call and hangs up. Jabra tech support had no resolution to this problem however I can live without it by touching a button on the side of the phone which stops the ring and sends callers to voice mail. This problem may be specific to Sony Ericsson phones but has reduced my rating to a "9". This headset far excedes anything else on the market including the caller ID Sony model HBH-660 and new HBH-662. Unfortunately, the overall rating for the BT-800 has suffered from users of Palm phones which do not work with this headset. Palm phones probably comprise a minority of Bluetooth phones and for most people the BT-800 will transform their phone to the accessory. I love mine. I would much rather drop a $150 handset than my $500 phone, which will stay in it's case from now on.
