Pros Nice fit, loud and clear, great design
Cons A bit pricey compared to the rest
Summary Ok, here is the real. I've used so many headsets that I began buying them just to find the best one. I became obsessed with buying headsets just to find one that worked as it should. I've used Jabra, Motorola, Sony, and others that just looked good. The Sony Ericsson HBH-660 was the only other that came close. The Motorola H700 was to staticky,(yes, that is a word), for my taste. Great design, but call quality doesn't compare with the JX10. I saw the box by surprise in Best Buy. I saw the price and said, "WOW! Dang that costs a lot!" So I bought it. I don't regret it one bit. It feels great, and the volume is terrific. You can turn it up so loud that it can even be too loud and hurt you; isn't that great? Size is super. No large appendage hanging off your ear. If this is your 7th or 8th headset, you'll appreciate this one. If this is your first, you'll have to go through a few more before you'll understand what I'm talking about. It’s pricey, but after you recycle your first two or three because they aren’t what you thought they were you'll regret not getting this one.
Pros Small - Feather Light - Very Comfortable - Voice Clarity is Excellent
Cons No Performance Issues - May be too small for those with large hands
Summary GN Mobile A/S the owners of the Jabra name setout to design a Bluetooth headset that is fashionable without sacrificing performance. They succeeded with the Jabra JX10. As an owner of the Jabra BT250 (which is also a great headset) I was very anxious to try the JX10...my expectations were met and exceeded. The form factor is outstanding measuring just 1.5" in length and .75" in width. It can be worn with or without the ear hook. I suspect that wearing the JX10 without the ear hook may not provide a high sense of confidence (stability) when engaged in some activities. Another point worth mentioning is the JX10 packaging. A black box with silver accents incorporating a circular cutout showcasing the JX10 headset under a plastic window. Opening the Velcro fastened "fly panel" reveals the JX10 charging unit positioned just above the headset displayed in the same manner. All of this fanfare is a radical departure from the all plastic packaging of other Jabra BT headsets promoting an allure of opulence. The box measures approximately 8.5"(L) x 6.0"(W) x 2.25"(D). Other components found in the box is a carrying pouch, quick start guide, instruction manual, AC adapter and USB cable to charge the unit from a PC. Before using the JX10 you must charge it. The charging stand compliments the JX10 handsomely and is weighted to prevent it from sliding off your desk. This design again furthers the concept that one has purchased a quality piece of equipment. Curiously, if the JX10's battery is completely drained it takes about 2 minutes for the LED on the JX10 headset to glow "red" indicating that it is charging. I first thought I had chosen a bad outlet and switched to several others; and finally I thought maybe a defective unit. I decided to read the FAQ's on page 7 of the manual and this behavior is outlined therein. One would think this would have been addressed on page 3 under "charging your headset". After charging is complete the LED on the JX10 glows "green". Now you are ready to "pair" the unit using the dedicated "pairing button" (a nice feature) with your BT enabled phone and start talking. Another mention about the LED is that it warns you of a low battery (by blinking red) and of course it blinks "blue" when in standby mode. There are only 3 other buttons on the JX10 headset...talk, volume-up and volume-down each with international icon markings. The talk button is multi-functional in that it answers or rejects incoming calls, turns the unit on and off, places a call on hold, and activates voice dialing. Fortunately, it's big enough (the talk button) that even those with large fingers should not have a problem using it. The volume buttons may be more of a challenge. People to whom I spoke said my voice was clear with no echoes. I could still be heard with the A/C in my car running full blast and the CD volume turned up. I'm using it with a Nokia N90 phone on the T-Mobile network. I'm quite pleased with the JX10 and consider it an excellent investment.
Pros Weight, Comfortable in either ear, Sound Quality
Cons Less features than on the BT800, Pricey
Summary When wanting to upgrade from the BT200, I first bought the BT800 with its multiple features, but it was too heavy and did not conform to my ear very well. I traded up to the JX10 and am very pleased. It is lightweight and very comfortable in either ear, with or without the earhook. I prefer wearing the headset with the earhook since I am afraid I will drop it without.
I do wish it had a few features of the BT800; mute button, vibrate, and longer battery life. The charging cradle is really cool and the USB charging cable is a real bonus for charging while on the go.
Overall, the engineering and styling is by far the best of class with exceptional sound quality. It would get a 10 if it were not for the battery life and have more features, not to mention the $$$.
Pros VOLUME,SOUND,WEARABILITY, AND CLARITY
Cons LIKE ALL BLUETOOTH HEADSET STATIC AT TIMES BUT FAR THE LEAST
Summary I'M SHOCK WHEN I HEAR WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT PRODUCTS LIKE THE MOTOROLA H 700 IS THE BEST OUT THERE WHEN I HEAR THAT STATEMENT I KNOW THERE IS NO WAY IN THE WORLD THEY COULD HAVE USED THE JX 10 BECAUSE THE JX 10 IS A THOUSAND TIMES BETTER THEN THE H700 THE VOLUME THE CLARITY THE DESISN THE FEEL IT FEELS LIKE A REAL HIGH QUALITY HEADSET AND NOT A TOY, LIKE MOST OTHER HEADSETS. I HAVE TRIED A TOTAL OF 16 HEADSETS AND THE JABRA IS THE BEST BY FAR FOLLOWED BY THE PLANTRONICS 640 AND THE JX10 IS STILL ALOT BETTER I SEE A FEW BAD REVIEWS ABOUT THE JX10 AND I THINK THAT THE PEOPLE SHOULD RETURN IT FOR ANOTHER ONE BECAUSE MY FIRST ONE HAD STATIC AND HISSING NOISES BUT MY SECOND ONE IS UNBELIEVEABLE THE VOLUME IS UNMATCH WHEN YOUR IN A LOUD AREA AND I EVEN LIKE IT IN THE WIND, YES I SAID WIND I MEAN USE COMMON SENSE POINT THE MIC AWAY FROM THE HEAD ON WIND IMPACT AND IT WILL WORK GREAT BECAUSE NOT EVEN YOUR PHONE WILL WORK IF WIND WAS BLOWING AGAINST THE MIC PLUS GO OUT AND BUY THE JABRA EAR GELS AT BEST BUY FOR 6.99 THE ONE THAT COME IN S,M, AND LARGE IN ONE PACKAGE AND YOU WILL NOT NEED THE EAR HOOK !!
"Outstanding Headset"on by PGDMAN
Pros Comfort, sound quality
Cons A bit expensive
Summary The JX-10 was purchased to replace my Treo bluetooth headset. The JX-10 has superior sound quality and external noise cancelling abilities. The small size and minimal weight allow me to wear it all day without any pain or ear fatigue. I believe this is the best all around bluetooth headset available today. It also paired easily with my Treo 650.
