"Does not live up to the hype - Motorola HS8910 better, although worse sound"3.0 starson by napoleanD
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.
