Pros Ergonomics and fit. Much better audio than other bluetooth options.
Cons Extended wear can be slightly irritating to the back of the ear lobe
Summary I've tried 3 now. The Mot 810, Bluespoon AX, and now this BT250.
The Motorola had terrible battery life and the Bluespoon AX would pick up nearly every sound within a 100 foot radius.
This product does what other Bluetooth sets have failed to do. Decent audio, great battery life and an ergonomic design that seems to fit well compared to others.
Keep in mind that no Bluetooth set is going to provide the exact same quality of audio as the normal handsets.
Pros Nice fit, Good Sound.
Cons I'am on my 3rd one in less then two months!
Summary When I first got it, I LOVED it! No more cords getting in the way.
However, after about 10 days of using it for about 5 hours a day, it went dead. Emailed Jabra several times for help, and never got a responce.
Returned it, to retailer, for a replacement which worked for about 12 days until it would no longer sinc with my P900.
Returned it, and am willing to try one last time. Have had this one for about 7 days, and all is well...so far.
Bottom line is this is a great design which does work very well, when it works! If the quality was better, and customer service was a word they understood, it would be an excellent headset.
Pros Auto connect on incoming and outgoing calls no need to press any buttons, snug comfortable fit, loud clear sound on both ends.
Cons Range is not so good.
Summary First off, I'm not really a "power user." My needs in a headset were very simple. Something comfortable to wear mainly while in the car. That being said, I am also somewhat of a tech geek, so I will not settle for anything that I feel is substandard, especially when spending $100.
This headset not only satisfied my basic requirements for use, but it has the bells and whistles I need as someone who loves their toys.
Comfort-This headset is an "in the ear" type. Personally I prefer this type because it provides a very secue fit, allowing me to put it on and not have to worry about it falling off. This is a big plus while driving as I'm constantly turning my head. Never have I felt as if this headset was coming loose or necessary to readjust. I also wear glasses. This headset is just as comfotable with or without the glasses.
Audio-Because this unit sits in the ear, the audio quality benefits tremendously. There is no space between your ear and the speaker. This effectively cuts out wind and background noise. I can drive on the expressway with window down and have no problem hearing my conversation. As far as the person on the other end, I've had no complaints thus far. They say it just sounds like a cell phone. Volume is loud and clear. I often have to turn it down a bit especially when in the house.
Bells and whistles-This headset will vibrate on incoming calls and answer automatically. It will also auto connect on outgoing calls, I simply choose the number and put the phone down. The headset automatically ends the call when the other party hangs up. I never have to touch the BT250 at all. As far as connection speed, I can have the call picked up immediately, after 1 ring, or 2 rings depending on the settings I choose on the Treo. I never have a problem with missing a call due to slow connection speed. On outgoing calls, the connection is almost instantaneous. Again, I never have to touch the headset at all.
So why the 9 and not a 10? Well the range of the headset and sensitivity to interference keep it from being perfect. You must keep the phone on the same side of the headset or else you'll get distortion. You also have to stay fairly close to the phone. While walking with the phone isn't too bad, it does crackle a bit. For me none of these are a very big deal, as most of the time I'm using the headset, I'm either in my car or sitting on the couch. However, for those who like the freedom of the wireless headset, they may be somewhat dissapointed. I must add that I have several WiFi devices and cordless phones around which may effectively limit my range indoors.
This review is based solely on my experience with the Treo 650. And though the range leaves much to be desired, this headset is awesome for my needs, and highly recommended.
Pros Set up was easy. Light and comfortable. Good design
Cons Mike picks up everything including AC in car and papers being moved etc.
Summary The Pros are far outweighed by the cons. The 250 and the 250v work fine if you are in a quite location. Both are worthless in a noisy environment. Needs noise and wind suppression. Bought one for my wife and plan on returning it. I bought a Logitec for less $$ and it has a wind suppression tip over the mike and great noise suppression. I can use it my car with the ac and radio on and the unit picks up my voice over the ac even when it is blowing on me.Updated
Kent German must have tied this headset in a quiet room. Bad review by the editor. I have one and it is useless in the car with the ac on or outside on a windy day or in a crowd with a lot of noise. The Logitec is a much better choice. You can use it a car with the ac blowing on it and get great sound.
Pros Fits well,,,,,
Cons Mic is terrible, overpriced
Summary It works okay in a quite room or car, but can't be used out doors or anywhere there is background noise.
Everyone constantly says that I sound like I have noise in the background, even with the music OFF, and AC barely even on.
I have returned it.
