Pros Absolutely snug, yet comfortable fit, excellent volume range, long battery life, great design, and easy-to-use!
Cons For Treo 650 owners, the better choice is the pa1m One Bluetooth Headset--a Treo "tweaked" version of the BT250 that's a 10!
Summary I own the new pa1m One Sprint PCS Treo 650 and finding a perfect "Bluetooth" headset match was a real learning experience. It started with the Cardo Scala-500 (an 8+), then the Motorola HS810 (an 8-), and finally this Jabra BT250. Though the pa1m One (OEM) version of this exact headset is the "One & only" for a Treo 650, so that you get "Auto-connect" and additional capabilities, it should be a keeper for the rest of you. I rate this headset a 9+ among all other compatible headsets because of its all around exceptional performance and design. This headset is a Bluetooth accessory must! WARNING to TREO 650 owners: Though the pa1m One version appears available on many on-line website stores ($66-$99), you risk getting the less-than-compatible, "untweaked" Jabra BT250 by not buying directly from the pa1m One Store. You'll know when the headset will not "Auto-connect" the first time you hit the "dial" button on your Treo, so buyer beware!
"Editors Choice?"on by rickyb
Pros Stays in ear. Pretty Comfortable. Price.
Cons Terrible sound quality. Drops connection.
Summary This is an Editors (Top) Choice? Please! It sounds like a 20 year old portable radio - lousy! I frequently have to take out the headset and use the phone to hear what callers are saying. The Bluetooth signal frequently drops my calls - I keep the phone (Motorola V600) on my belt, about 3 feet from the headset, and it drops calls very frequently. I cannot stress enough the poor quality of the sound - my Motorola headset sounds MUCH better and doesn't drop calls, but it's nowhere near as comfortable in the ear. The Jabra is not easy to carry around, either. Pretty good size - and the belt holder is fairly useless. I keep mine in a shirt pocket, but don't bend over! I would not recommend this headset to anyone who wants clear sound and a stable connection (anyone out there NOT want those things?). I'll keep looking for a headset that has all the features I want - this one isn't it. Very disappointing.
Pros Great battery life (exceptionally standby time)
Cons Background noise can be heard over your call
Summary The majority of the people I called using the Jabra FreeSpeak complained that they could not hear me over the background noise (traffic, people in the room, music, etc.) It works okay in a quite room or car, but can't be used out doors or anywhere there is background noise. I ended up using it as a device to retrieve messages only.
Pros Stability, battery life, comfort, style
Cons Not a broad range, static outside (wind noise)
Summary I have tested a number of bluetooth headphones (Motorola and Planatronics) and the Jabra is the most "stable" of the products. Each went through rigerious tests based on: range, clearity, and style. The other products delivered average performance, in other words had signs of crackle (voice) and an echo on the recieving end. The Jabra performs in a solid manner with very little signs of crackle or echo. However, if the Jabra is used outside a 15feet radius, signs of crackle become overbearing for the user. On a final note, the Jabra is the most discreate of headsets. If you want to show off and look like Robocop buy the other products mentioned.
Pros Overall, I really like the BT250. Of all the headsets, I think it feels and sounds the best. It is the most ergonomically designed, maintaining a lower, more concealed profile than any competitor. And it worked fine with my Sony-Ericsson.
Cons But, recently, I upgraded to a new video phone. With my new Motorola V551, the BT250 works fine as long as it is connected. Therein is the problem. I experience frequent, inadvertent disconnections of the Bluetooth connection without any warning. I had
