1-0 out of 5 stars Broken ear clips
I have had this product for just under a month and now the second earclip is cracked and about to break. The little ring that connects to the main unit is thin plastic and snaps easily under light to moderate use. Now I guess I have to find more of them somewhere or stop using the device.

2-0 out of 5 stars It doesn't work with a PC
If you want to use this device with your PC, buy another device. It doesn't work. I have called Plantronics support service and they say that it doesn't work.

It works fine with my mobile phone. But is useless for PC.

The problem is that Plantronics says that it works with PCs... What a shame. I feel I have been cheated

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent noise cancelling
This is the 3rd bluetooth headset I am trying (Jabra & Motorola) being the other two. Even though this is a bit bulky, I feel comfortable wearing it around my right ear. The noise cancelling is the best part of this headset. While driving on both highways & city roads, I have not had anyone complain about the background noise. I do have to attend a bunch of conference calls while I drive and this has been the best headset so far in term of clarity and noise cancelling quality. I have it paired to my Blackberry 7100t phone.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Sound, Good Fit, Great Price
I had my doubts about this headset when I read the other reviews, but I jumped in and bought it anyway because of the price, and July is around the corner and Chicago's cell phone law goes into effect. I only use it in the car and the sound I get is very good. The battery lasts long but cut the numbers that Plantronics gives you by 25%

I did take a walk away from my phone and the signal did get a little choppy after about 20 feet, but like I said I only use this in the car. It paired with my Motorola V551 instantly with no problems. The ear loop was a little uncomfortable, but after I bent it away from the headset right where the rubber part starts, it fit perfectly after that.

The thing is a little big and if you move your head side to side quickly it flaps on your face but it does sit securely on your ear. You can bend to pick something up or reach up high and it will sit on your ear.

Overall I'm happy with it, and for the price you can't go wrong.

1-0 out of 5 stars Definitely not for PC
From the Product Description, it mentioned it can also be used on PC with bluetooth. Well, it's not true. I tried to set it up but cannot get through. They should have included the Widcomm software to be able to communicate with my notebook. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Designed specifically for convenience and comfort, the FreeSpeak BT250 lets you talk hands-free and wirelessly on your cell phone via Bluetooth technology. (It also works with some non-bluetooth devices.) The lightweight, contoured device fits securely on your head, works with either ear, looks great, and it's simple to set up.

Weighing less and an ounce, the FreeSpeak BT250 is constructed from a soft, sound-absorbing elastomer material that reduces distortions, resulting in crisp sound quality. The earpiece also features the new Jabra MiniGel, a soft, ergonomic gel tip that channels sound directly into your ear for better reception, improving your ability to hear conversations clearly even in noisy environments.

The device works up to 30 feet away from your mobile phone, so you can talk and walk freely even if your phone is inside your briefcase, pocket, or across the room from you. It also provides you easy, intuitive volume controls, and features LED and audible status indicators, and you'll get an average of up to 8 hours talk time and 240 hours standby on the BT250's batteries.

3-0 out of 5 stars NOT COMFORTABLE
In general I am okay with this headset, I am using it with a TREO 650 which lends itself to other issues, the headset is not advanced enough to work automatically with the treo.My main complaint is it is not adjustable to my ear.I actually have to use the big ear gel to get it to stay on because the part that goes over your hear is about 1 cm too high over my ear, so the big ear gel holds it up....It fits my husband perfectly, so maybe it is that I have smaller ears, it just seems to me that there should be a better way to make it fit.

4-0 out of 5 stars Generally happy
I have been using this device for two months, and have been generally happy with it - the audio fidelity is good, the unit is comfortable, the battery life is long and, although I haven't tested the maximum range, I usually use it at 10 to 12 feet from the phone (Nokia 6820).My house is in a marginal reception area for Cingular, and using the headset allows me to put the phone in a "sweet spot" with an unusual orientation, giving me three or four bars instead of one.

The "belt clip" is a joke.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good Bluetooth handsfree kit, but with a few problems
The FreeSpeak is no doubt a reasonably good performer. The sound on it is reasonably clear and the microphone does a good job too. My only complaint on it is that once I paired mine and turn the kit on, my PDA (a Sony Clie PEG-UX50) would no longer be able to connect to the phone (a SonyEricsson T610) via bluetooth unless the kit is switched back off. Could be a flaw with either the phone's design and/or the Bluetooth specification (I never really did test it with a different phone to verify the problem), but since I am able to receive calls while my PDA is connected to the internet (I have GPRS enabled on my line), it would be nice to be able to answer a call without either talking on my phone or taking the PDA offline. Still, a good starter kit if you don't have any other Bluetooth device paired with your phone.

Update: Well, I've managed to get a Motorola V600 and tried the same headset on it, and the same problem persists- you can't connect other Bluetooth devices to the phone while the headset is connected. I am now also fairly certain that the problem is with Bluetooth's specifications as I was unable to exchange pictures between the phones while the PDA was accessing one of the phones. So, okay. No fault of the phones, PDA or the headset. Just the way Bluetooth works in general.

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor belt clip design
I don't have much to say about the 250 other than to point out the really poor design of the belt clip/charger. The 250 is supposed to click into this holder (which connects to the power adaptor for charging). This holder is designed to clip onto your belt so that you can carry the 250 when is is not in use. Okay, I agree that you will look extremely nerdy if you have your phone AND your earpiece hanging from your belt but sometimes you need to put the things away and the Freespeak 250 is really too fragile to carry in your pocket. The only problem with this is that the 250 will easily fall out of the holder and if you use it you WILL lose it. It is only a matter of time. My 250 lasted about 45 seconds and when I went to get it from the belt clip it was GONE. Not the holder but the 250 itself. Some lucky stiff at the Houston airport picked it up and walked away.

I also thought that the 250 was not well made. When I would push the on/off or volume buttons I could feel the housing "give" a little, as if the buttons were about to collapse into the housing. A little too flimsy and not indication of a long life expectancy for the earpiece.

I suggest that you consider another alternative - at $90 the 250 is simply overpriced.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Ready for Prime Time
I have used this headset with my Treo 650 and have been very disapointed with it's performance. It may be a function of the Treo's Bluetooth capabilities so keep that in mind and do not waste your money on this headset if you are using a Treo.

It has very poor range; arm's length at best. Outdoors it is useless. It has times when it will refuse to pick up a call. The voice quality is also poor with hissing and crackling. The only place it seems to be remotely useful is in the car where it is within arm's reach and the hissing is only moderate. This is pretty expensive to only be able to use part of the time. Talk time is also much shorter than advertised.

My $.02, save your money for something else.

Update: Recently purchased the new Treo 650 headset by PalmOne. That is the new Bluetooth 1.2 version, not the clone of this Jabra. Much, much better. Now I have a headset that I can use all the time. I have completely replaced all my wired headsets. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for LG VX6000
Plantronics has produced a quality product that is both functional and comfortable.The noise cancelling technology works exetremely well, as all my callers comment that they can not hear background noise while I am on the road.My wife has a Jabra, supposedly with noise cancelling, and it does not function nearly as well at reducing background noise.As far as comfort, the flexgrip earpiece is easy to put in your ear while driving and stays secure.

I highly recommend this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Plantronics X150
Got this headset for my birthday.It is very compfortable and the quality of the reception is great.Everyone says I sound better on the headset than I do when I am not using it.It is a bit awkward the way it clips to your ear but I am getting used to it.

I would highly recommend it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great when they work...
This headset is light and comfortable and works very well with most cell phones.Unfortunately, they always seem to die on me.I've gone through five MX150s in the last eight months.I buy them in pairs now so I always have a backup.I can't find anything I like better, so I keep going down this road, but be prepared for problems if you are a heavy user.Also, do not buy this headset if you are looking to use it with a Uniden TRU8885 Cordless Phone.You will have significant outbound volume problems.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect
Hey. This is a perfect little headset. I've had it for a year now. People can't tell I'm on a cell phone. Excellent at blocking outside noise, and I can hear everything crystal clear on the receiving end. Great Buy.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great sound, but mic sucks bigtime
The earpiece is absolutely fantastic, but don't let anybody fool you. A mic on the side of your mouth will never sound good to the other person on the phone. This one has a very difficult time picking up voices over driving noise (with the windows up!), especially if the A/C is blowing on your face. Multiple people told me it sounded WORSE than the crappy handsfree kit that comes with the phone.

1-0 out of 5 stars Loved it, then hated it
I bought one of these and really liked it... for about six months until it stopped working; no audio; like the wire was cut.Stubborn guy that I am, I bought the same model again.I really liked how it fit my ear and sounded.Four months later (yesterday) headset number two died in the same way number one gave up the ghost.Am I willing to try for three strikes?No way!

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible
I liked the comfort and convenience of this headset. However, the parties I am talking to cannot hear me when there is the slightest background noise. Terrible while traveling in a vehicle. I do not use it at all any more because I have to yell & repeat myself to the other party.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very nice design, but too loud!!
I bought the Jabra Earwave Boom as an upgrade from a cheap-ass generic earpiece. As i hoped, it's a much nicer product. It feels of decent quality, and it fits on/in my ear very well. It also looks quite cool, i think. Sound quality, in both directions, seems to be quite good.

However, my #1 complaint is that it is TOO LOUD!! Maybe it's just my phone, but with my Samsung i500 smartphone, even with the volume turned down to the minimum, i kept wincing as my ear would be blasted. Even the 'beep' after the 'Who do you want to call?" voice dial query would be painful.

However, i did find a solution. I took a tiny chunk of soft foam taken from some packing materials, and stuffed it into the audio canal through the eargel with a pin. It blocks enough sound that the Earwave Boom is comfortable to use.

If it had come with a reasonable volume level out of the box, i would have given it 5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Xbox Live as well
I bought this headset to use a replacement for the headset that comes with Xbox Live (the online service for Xbox game consoles).The standard Xbox Live headset is very clumsy and fragile.Fortunately, it can be replaced with any headset that uses a standard 1/8" jack.All you do is disconnect the standard headset from the adapter (the block thing with the volume control that plugs into your Xbox controller), and connect the Jabra in its place.It takes a little force to push it in all the way, but otherwise it fits perfectly.

The other reason I wanted to replace the Xbox headset is because with some Xbox games (like Mech Assault 2), if I want to wear headphones, I need to wear them over the headset.As you can imagine, that's uncomfortable.The Jabra headset fits over the ear and is flush against the head.While I'm wearing it, I can comfortably wear my headphones over it.

Not only does this headset work with my Xbox, but it works with my cordless phone and my cell phone.That makes this headset a great value.

The sound is very good, and everyone I talk to says my voice is clear.I think this is a great headset, and I'm very happy with my purchase. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME
This thing rocks! No problem with battery for me and no i can talk hands free!

1-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE! THE iPOD OF BLUETOOTH: NON-REPLACEABLE BATTERIES!

It was only hinted at inside the manual, but never definitvely stated, so I called JABRA and asked. Yep, I was right:

THE BATTERIES INSIDE BOTH OF THESE UNITS ARE NON-REPLACEABLE.

JABRA doesn't even have the cajones to admit this directly in their manual. They must figure if Apple can get away with this BS on the iPod, they can, too.

What does this mean to you? Somewhere between 300 - 600 recharges, YOU WILL HAVE TO THROW THE ENTIRE UNIT AWAY!!! At least with the iPod, you can pay Apple some ridiculous amount of money to replace the battery.

But wait, the idiocy doesn't stop there: The earpiece is a tapered ear-gel: IT DOESN'T STAY IN YOUR EAR unless you hold it there with your hand, which defeats the whole concept of "hands-free".

And, to top it off, the activation/de-activation sequence/ear-tones are confusing and goofy; half the time, the activation remained after I terminated a call, which quickly drained the adapter.

WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK!

1-0 out of 5 stars Battery useless just over a year after purchase
I've had this product just over a year and had decent success using it w/ my Sony Erickson T610. I didn't use it much, however, and now it's practically useless, cause the battery runs out after 20-30 minutes of use (and starts beeping before that). Since I didn't use it much, I'm guessing I recharged the battery 20-30 times at most. Since you can't replace the battery, that means it's time to buy another, but it wont be a Jabra!

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Fine...Could Could Be Better...
I find this bluetooth earpiece unit to work just fine. The only thing I dont like about it is the beeping & clicking sound you get every once and a while, despite this litle annoyance the thing works fine.

2-0 out of 5 stars Lifetime of unreplacable battery: just beyond 1 yr warranty
I got my BT200 for non-Bluetooth phones 15 months ago.It worked well and I liked it a lot despite annoying background clicking and short battery life.Now, after just over a year, its battery often won't last a day of standby let alone conversations.Jabra support says they have no spare parts or service and offered me a 20% discount on a new one.In other words, beware that this is a disposable product!I also have a BT-110, which uses a AAA cell that has much longer life and can be removed for recharge and/or replacement. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars PC Only!!!
Based on the reviews above, I purchased this to shuttle files between my Motorola V710 and Mac running OS 10.3.7.Despite many attempts to clean up/re-format the disk, and removing .DS_STORE files before returning the disk to my phone, I have yet to get it to work between the Mac and my phone.As soon as I put a file on the disk from my Mac, even in the appropriate folder followed by removing .DS_STORE files, the disk stops working, and blocks access to other files stored on the phone. The best I can do is format it on the phone, and use it for extra storage.So, if you want something to pass files between your Mac and phone, keep looking!

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have accessory for your mobile phone!
I am very pleased with this memory card. I was able to transfer movies, MP3's and pictures to my Motorola v710 effortlessly. You simply drag whatever you want on the phone onto the disk on your computer! With normal quality, you can store around 40 songs on your phone. Just make sure you have a memory card adapter that can read SD memory cards.

NOTE FOR MAC USERS: If you are using a computer with Mac OS X to transfer files be warned, the computer will create an invisible file in the memory card named ".DS_STORE" that, if not erased, will crash your phone. No permanent damage will be done, but you will be unable to access anything you put on your card. To delete the file, find a program that can see invisible files.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have!
I bought the SanDisk 128MB TransFlash because the storage space on my cool, new Motorola V710 from Verizon is sorta skimpy (...just 10MB).Now I have no problems storing all my photos, video clips, and MP3s.The TransFlash is really, really tiny.According to SanDisk, it's not meant to be handled regularly because the fairly soft casing is prone to damage if handled roughly.Remember to format the TransFlash first before using.Have fun!

5-0 out of 5 stars Expanded storage for the Motorola V710
Recently I picked up the Motorola V710 (verizon) phone that is compatable with this memory card.The Transflash card used to be called T-Flash and was for some reason renamed.In the package an included transflash to SD memory adapter allows you to connect to a SD compatable memory reader for a PC through a USB 2.0 interface.

The first thing that struck me as amazing is the size of the transflash memory.120mb in a little device that I can barely keep hold of in two fingers.It tucks away neatly into the transflash memory port on the Motorola V710 unnoticed.This is one of the first phones to feature a built in 1.2 megapixel camera, mp3 player and video camera, so the need for expanded storage is a must.

I purchased a cheap SD memory reader and plugged the transflash card to the SD adapter and it immediately read as a removable storage drive on my Windows XP based computer.One problem I did have was files kept getting corrupted when I tried to read them on the phone.I fixed this by formatting the card (just like formatting a built in hard drive).Not sure if this was a problem of how the phone formatted the memory when it built all the default directories or if it was the reader or card itself.But the format fixed it with no further issues.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality. Limited range
Hello,
I am a scientist in the field ofMicrowave/RF circuits and systems. I considered several but finally chose the Jabra A210 along with the BT250 Jabra headset.

A few things to note:
1) swithcing on and off is not very intuitive, you have to hold down the power button for "n" number of seconds, the lights will flash in a certain pre-ordained sequence, but if you do hold down the power button more than what is required (this is sketchy), then the appliances enter set up mode, and the pairing between the adapter and the headset might be lost. BUT this set (headset and the adapter) have 8 hours talk time and 240 hours standby time (as per manufacturer's claim), even if it performs up to 80% of the reported claim, you wont have to mess around too much with the power switch. You can comfortably use it during the day and come home at night and recharge the set.

2) Quality of sent and received signals. Please note: The jabra A210 has a pin which can be put in to 3 settings. Setting # 1 is for motorola phones, Setting # 3 for all other phones and Setting # 2 is for when you feel discomfort in setting # 1 or # 3. I have a LG VX 6100 NON-BLUETOOTH phone from verizon. I tested the settings extensively by calling a friend. (Thanks Guddu.) I tried setting # 1, there were 2 noticeable problems: (a) My friend complained that the volume of my voice was low, but the clarity was good.
(b) I could not use the button on the head set to connect and disconnect calls.
But I must mention, I could receive my friend's voice in absolutely loud and clear tones.

Both the problems were alleviated when I used setting # 3 on the adapter. In fact, when I started using setting # 3, my friend complained that my voice was too loud! There werent any issues related to clarity.

3) Range: The manufacturer claims this to have a range of 10 meters (30 feet). But at the same time, in its manual, it is written that if there are objects in the wireless signal path between the adapter and the headset, the sound quality will suffer.

Now we have to consider 2 trade offs for every RF design. (a) power (b) size. We all want the smallest devices with maximum power and range. Well physics and electronics sharply put us back in our places. If you want greater range, you need to put out signal with great field strength. That needs higher battery consumption, high efficiency non linear amplifiers and large antennas. Microstrip patch antennas (generally used for their low profiles and small size) resonate to a particular frequency if their length is correctly defined. But with design modifications, this length can be shortened, but the gain suffers. Also, thanks to the FCC, we have very strict limitations on the frequency bands available (the higher the frequency, the shorter the wave length, and thus smaller the antenna and consequently higher the gain). FCC makes many RF devices work at lower frequencies than we RF engineers would like them to operate at. Also, due to fear of signal from one device interferring with other devices, FCC puts limits on the amount of power a device can put out.

Given these considerations, the A210 and BT250 which are required to have excellent power efficiency (8 hours talk time and 240 hours stand by time) and also small and compact size (very small batteries and small antennas) provide a range which is not quite satisfactory. I walked at a radius of 10 feet and even with walls, metal partitions, etc, the signal strength was not that affected. How ever more than 10 feet, the signal had so much noise in it, I had to move closer to the adapter.

To be honest with you, I am not happy with the range. I dont think the range is $130 worth (for the adapter and headset = $50 + $80). Period. For a 10 feet range the cost should have been more like $50 (for both).

So basically, we have reviewed some basic factors. However, there is one major design flaw that I would like to bring to your attention. That is: The head set and the adapter enter in to stand by mode after one minute of non-usage. So even when you are in the middle of a call and both parties keep silent for more than a minute, the head set and the adapter stop communicating. The call is NOT disconnected. You can either pull the adapter jack out of the cell phone and put it back in, or press the volume key on the cell phone (basically do some thing with the cell phone) and you will be able to resume the conversation on the bluetooth devices. How ever this is not voice operable. Meaning, if the adapter and the headset enter in to stand by mode during the conversation when both parties to the call are silent, even when they both start talking, the adapter and the head set do not start communicating.

This is extremely uncomfortable. If I have a blue tooth head set and adapter kit for which I have paid $130 or more, then I want absolute mobility with out any reason to come back to the adpater unless I do so from my own free will.

Lastly, here is a recommendation for the people who designed this set. You need to incorporate greater features in to this adapter and head set. It should be able to not only handle voice data but also music and other types of audio information. This means you might need to use a more efficient method of modulation. Maybe you are using FSK which is constant envelope modulation (I deal with military and radar communication, so I dont know what modulation is used for blue tooth), but you cannot include too much information in to the FSK signal. Try using QAM, maybe not a very high order QAM, but some thing capable of handling all audio information. All you will need to change in the design is: a new power amplifier which is high efficiency and linear. Probably a class E or Class F with feed forward or Envelope elimination and restoration (Kahn) or Doherty principles. It is simple. You will need a one time engineering development cost, but in the long term - with market domination and mass production, it will more than make up for it.

As for buyers. If you are rich, a techno geek or a business person constantly on the phone - Go for this. It is good.
But if you have limited resources (money) then buy a simple wired hands free kit. In fact at times when the battery is down or I have to move to get back within range, I long for the reliability of a wired handsfree kit.

1-0 out of 5 stars no phone
the nokia 7280 is not listed.I have one and want a car charger for it

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good and reliable charger
I bought this charger primarily for road trips. It takes me about 1 1/2 hour to charge my phone, and hence you might not need it that much if all you do is commute. It does however add the advantage of unlimited talk time in your car, whenever you do need it.

The charger has a very solid feel, and it appears to be very good craftsmanship. It has proven to be very durable. I've owned and frequently used this charger for more than 2 1/2 years now, and I've never had anything go wrong with it. In my opinion, it works better than you could expect after that long of a time. It's been kept in my car permanently since I bought it, and by that has been exposed to excessive Arizona heat for weeks on end. With the desert heat comes the cooldown at night, so the temperature difference it's been exposed to has also been great. The charger has a convenient, little light to show you when it's charging.

The charger's cord is a "feisty" one, so don't expect it to be too cooperative if you try to stretch it very far.

All in all a charger you should expect to charge your Nokia phones (no surprises there?) for a long, long time, no matter what you put it through. The charger is very reliable and durable, and I highly recommend it. 5 STARS!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Cell Charger
We upgraded phones and I needed a charger for my car so I orderd one for my car and at the price Amazon had it for what a deal.Also, it shipped very quickly. Then my husband borrowed mine and I had to order another for him.So we have two of them and they both work very well and we are pleased with their performance.These are fast chargers and they work very well.I had heard,however, that fast chargers are not good for cell batteries.That they can wear out your batteries faster but was not sure so if you have any doubts ask your phone dealer or battery provider.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works for me!
I needed a car charger for my Nokia phone but did not want to pay [$$$] for one at the celluar stores. The cord is a little short but this is fine with me since it still reaches the passenger seat or the cup holder. It serves its purpose. It's nice not having a long cord in the way. Thanks!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Holds well / Sounds good
What else do you expect a headset to behave? I use it all the time on my panasonicKX-TG2216, 2.4 Ghz phone. It's rugged and stylish with volume control and mute. Would recommend as a safe options to hands free environment.

4-0 out of 5 stars 1 Suggestion, 1 Hack (and 2nd review on this item)
My only suggestion for improving this headset is that Panasonic should redesign the mute switch to allow the user to hit the button and remain on mute without holding down the button.

I did a little work with a scalpel to remove some of plastic housing around the plug, so that I could use this headset with my Xbox Live voice module. The headset works great in that context as well as with a cordless or mobile phone.
*** My 2nd TCA92 review(04Jun2005 -- 1st was 15May2004) ***
I read the other reviews, and maybe it's my good fortune that I'm using Panasonic 2.4 gig phones that were top of the line for their time. The phones sound great, the internals are solidly engineered, and I get killer sound from my headset. I generally turn the phone all the way up & the headset all the way down.

As far as durability, my Panasonic phones have been through 4 years of hard use and even some abuse. Like the phones, my headset has survived both as well. I threw this headset (angry at something other than the headset), hard enough to break the folding part that grips the user's head. I glued that back on, snapped the speaker assembly back together and went on as usual. This headset takes a beating, in my experience, so the other reviewer who experienced a failure must really have worked it over, or somebody else did & then wouldn't cop to it.

Anyway, I visited Amazon tonight to buy one of Panasonic's 5.8 gig phones as a gift -- another testament to my satisfaction with these phones.

Ps. I don't work for Panasonic, but rather a subsidiary of a large software company based in Redmond, Washington. Just so you know I'm not on the take.

1-0 out of 5 stars this headset breaks easily
Like others, I found that this headset worked for only a short time.Then I found that while I could hear the person I was calling, they couldn't hear me.

So I opened up the earpiece and found the problem:a wire had broken off the small chip that serves as the connection point between the mouthpiece and the earpiece.I soldered it back on, and the headset worked again.

In a week or two the same thing happened.I had to re-solder it.

The third time, I tried soldering it again, but more wires had broken off and I just gave up.

The problem seems to come from moving the mouthpiece.It CAN be twisted all around, but apparently that pulls on the wires inside and that's what breaks them off.

From what other people have described, I think this was what caused the problem they had.

I was happy enough with the headset itself -- when it worked, which wasn't for long.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good sound.
In my experience, headsets need to match the phone you want to use them with. This headset works well with my Uniden phone ( PowerMax 5.8 ghz, 2 line). My voice is clear to the people I call. The volume in the ear piece is louder than with any other headset I have tried. The quality of the sound is acceptable but it lacks "richness".

This is a new unit for me and I can not address the reliability issue that other reviewers mention. I have found most headsets to be delicate and easily broken. The $16.00 dollar price at Amazon is better than full price at Office Max but it is still a dispoable item.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great, While it worked!!
I loved this headset while it worked.Fit great.Loved the mute feature.It lasted about 3 months and quit. Couldn't hear anything. Tried to take it back to retailer.Wouldn't do anything for me, said I should have bought the extended warranty. Yea, right!! On a $30 item!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the best headset i've ever used (and i've used 'em all)
i helped develop the danger hiptop (aka "t-mobile sidekick) and hated holding its brick-like nature to my head ... i wanted a good headset ...

the only problem is i *hate* earbuds, so i wasn't looking forward to shopping for/buying one.i went to the local super-electronics store, and abusing their return policy, bought one of every headset they had to try -- 23 headsets to be exact ... i picked up the jabra only to be a complete-ist, figuring there was no way i'd buy its star-trek-bugs-crawling-in-chekov's-ear styling.

but after trying them all, the jabra was *easily* the best feeling and best fitting.

in a nutshell, here are the things i like about this unit in particular:

* it comes with 6 different fittings (3 sizes for the right and the left), so you get a chance to get a *much* closer fit than some generic ear piece.

* contrary to what others have said here, the ear pieces stay *very* snug in your ear (if they don't, you're not fitting them correctly).

* i wear glasses, so i can't tolerate over-the-ear headsets.this, of course, is great in that way.

* i like having the model with the microphone boom over the classic ear-only jabra because it:

1. let's people know you're talking on the phone, and less likely to interrupt you while you're talking.

2. i drive a convertible and the mike cover is good enough that i can easily talk to people with the top down and be heard without a ton of wind noise.

* it's small and easy to wrap up into my cell case.


also in the newest version, they've adding a securing "lip" to the rubber ear pieces that keep them from falling off the ear piece (this definitely was a problem before).

to top it all off, jabra's support is excellent.i called their 800 number when my securing clip for my shirt broke and they immediately sent me *three* replacements, free of charge, along with a ball point pen for my "troubles."

at 10 bucks, these things are a steal ... using one with my hiptop is a joy -- it means i can still contruct sms's, type in emails, add messages and addresses to my address book whilst talking on the phone.if you have a data device of any kind, this will make your phone experience twice as good.

a truly great product from a company that knows how to treat its customers right.what more could you want?

thanks for reading.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good unit at a great price.Worth a shot.
Jabra makes, by far the best hands-free devices on the market.This particular model, the EarBoom, is not with it's faults.However, it will meet your needs for the most part if you figure out it's peculiarities.

Jabra provides multiple ear gels for comfort and for left ear or right ear use.The criticism that they are hard to get used to is valid.You have to try putting them in different ways till you figure it out.The instructions are not a substitute for trial and error I suppose.

As for the hands-free jack on your phone, you have to make sure you have a 2.5 millimeter jack.That is the one with 2 stripes on the plug.Unfortunately, a specific compatibility list is hard to come by.Look at the specs for your phone and give it a try.

The microphone will capture sound just fine, despite the short arm.If you find people are telling you your voice is muffled, you must slighly twist the microphone head.I have found that sometimes, if it is at the wrong angle, it will not capture sound as well.The arm is flexible enough that it can be adjusted slightly.

I also prefer the EarWave Boom or the EarWrap, which have wraparound ear attachments and a slightly longer more solid arm.The Jabra EarWave Bud doesn't have a microphone arm, but instead has the small mic on the cable with a clip to attach it to your tie.Personally I don't like those models.I have not found much difference in sound quality, though the EarWave Boom and the EarWrap are somehow easier to figure out.

For difficulty of use and for a microphone arm style that I just don't like, I have docked this unit 2 stars.It should be noted that none of Jabra's newer models have this microphone arm any longerBut this is good bang for the buck.Try other higher end models if you are more demanding, like I am, and are willing to spend the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars great, but confusing
I think this is a pretty good earpiece...granted, I've only used one other (it was a flimsy little thing that came w/ my friend's Nokia), but this one far surpasses that one in sound quality and comfort.Where my friend's would fall out of my ear, this one (once I got it figured out) never comes loose.Second, listening to people on my friend's, I would have to turn up the sound to hear the person well, and then they sounded muffled and distorted; but on my Jabra I can actually turn down the volume on my phone and they sound crisp and clear-- moreso than when I'm not using the earpiece.Finally, when my friend calls me and uses her earpiece, she sounds distant and muffled; I've had no complaints from the people I'm talking to using the Jabra, and, in fact, my mom said it sounds better when I use the EarBoom than when I don't.

The ear gels are a bit hard to get used to.They are oddly shaped (as you can see in the picture), and there are six of them total-- three of them for each ear.Lots of reviewers complained about the fit and comfort of the ear gels, while others claim these are the most comfortable earpieces they've used and that they fit perfectly...I can honesly say I've had both experiences.When I first got this unit the earpiece kept falling out everytime that I would turn my head: *very* frustrating.I tried pushing it into my ear as hard as I could, I tried holding it in place with my hand, but that only seemed to defeat the purpose of having a hands-free earpiece.Nothing seemed to work.I was thinking of returning it.I was thinking of throwing it into traffic on I-95.And then one day, somehow, I came to the realization that you have to sort of twist it into your ear-- with the little poky-out part stuck in the fold of your ear next to the ear canal (not the fold on the top of your ear; if you do that it'll just pop out again)-- and then *voila* it stays put.Matter o' fact, it'll stay put so well that it'll be a little bit difficult-- even *painful*-- to get out again.
I can imagine that people with different ear sizes, different patience levels, and lower IQs might have different experiences than my own.But all I can say is that once I had this little bugger figured out, I was golden.I love this thing and almost never talk on the phone without it.
Admittedly, it is a bit difficult to get into your ear-- I'd say it takes upward of 2 seconds to get in properly (before you're good and practiced at it), which may not sound like a lot, but it's long enough to not recognize somebody's voice or hear the first sentence they say, or whatever.A *very mild* frustration.But like all things good and pleasant, it takes a little practice to get it just right and now I have it so that I can answer the phone, slip the EarBoom in my ear and start a conversation without missing a beat.In fact, I find this earpiece to be so comfortable that I forget that it's in until I go to scratch my ear or something!

The other complaint that I saw on here was that it's not compatible with Nokia phones.In fact, it even says right on the package that it's not compatible with Nokia.That's funny, I have a Nokia 3589i and it works just fine.They make two other models of EarBoom (one of which clearly would not have worked with my phone), both of which claim to be Nokia compatible, and *neither* of those works with my phone!Confusing?Yes!The problem is it doesn't work with *all* Nokia phones.While browsing at the store I noticed that the ones that claimed to be Nokia compatible had a list of phones that it works with, but it didn't include mine (it included one that was, numerically speaking, very close to my model: the 3590); which piqued my curiosity.And so I went to the friendly manager of the store that I was in and he opened two of the different packages for me and let me test both of them.One of them worked, the other didn't.The strange part of it was that we couldn't see a visible difference in the two units...and then one of us noticed that on one of them the jack had two small black stripes around it (that's this one, and if you look closely at the picture you can see them), while the other one (the one marked as Nokia compatible) had three.Hmmm...Curious.
So my advice is to either know your phone well (as in, have the little book handy) or ask for help before purchasing.

All in all 4 of 5 stars.I'd give it 5 stars on performance and comfort, but have to take it down a notch for an extended period of getting used to it and for confusing packaging.

Addendum:
Several months later the little piece of foam has fallen from the end of the boom so that any sound from the wind becomes almost unbearably loud for the person at the other end...And living in windy Providence, this is a bit of an annoyance.
Also, for a while I was having a problem where the earpiece would cut out for seconds at a time so that I couldn't hear the person on the other end of the line (and, likewise, they couldn't hear me) unless I jiggled the little jack.This was *very *FRUSTRATING.**Now, for some reason, I'm not having that problem anymore.I'm not really sure if the problem was due to my phone or the EarBoom.Either way, it's something buyers should be aware of.

2-0 out of 5 stars Microphone is poor - skip it.
I liked the way the earpiece fit in my ear. Usually, earpieces fall out for me, but this one had a nice design.

However, my friends don't hear me when I use it. They describe it as sounding like "a bad cellphone connection - muffled."Because of that, I can't really use it.I hear my friends just fine, but they complain.

I then bought the Jabra EarWave Boom with Universal 2.5mm connector.It's a different design (wraps around the ear) and costs about twice as much as this one, but the sound is much better.My friends are happy.

Do yourself, but more importantly the people you call, a favor and skip this model. There's really no point if the sound is poor.

4-0 out of 5 stars decent sound quality, sensitive mic
So I bought this thing based on the Amazon reviews and saved a bundle over the local retail cost (yeah Amazon!), but that's not why I'm writing this review.

I'd like to talk about the performance and comfort of the Earboom.The eargel thingies are designed quite well, of the three different sizes for each ear you're bound to find one that fits very comfortably.Turns out I couldn't find any that fit my right ear comfortably for extended periods of use but found a perfect fit in my mate on the other side.My wife had the exact opposite experience - hopefully our daughter will inherit more symmetrical ears!I hate jogging so can't comment on the fit during that activity but can say the gels fit suprising well in the folds of your ear and the boom is quite secure when installed.I'd have to imagine it'd take a big hit to knock it loose once in place.

Sound quality from the earbud is decent, but I feel the Earboom lacks some fidelity, especially the higher frequencies.Normally this is not a problem, but it can sometimes make the person you're talking to sound like Isaac Hayes.The speaker is plently loud and the lack of high frequencies allows you to tune into the tonal range where us humans tend to converse, without having the voices washed over with background noise.The gels block an appropriate amount of external sounds allowing you to concentrate on the discussion at hand without impeding your ability to hear say an ambulance while driving.There is a small slot on the gels that funnels some external noise to your drum, while the rest of the gel fits snug to the ear blocking out other stray noise paths.

I've asked people how I sound and thus far the feedback has been positive, my voice comes through loud and clear despite the boom's apparent lack of length, reinforcing my belief that size DOESN'T matter.In fact, I have found the mic to be very sensitive to even small sounds.Forget talking on the phone and subtly typing on the keyboard our mouse click surfing - they'll hear every click.Another example, I was in my house and the person on the other end could hear the kids playing in the pool 40 feet away with the house windows closed!!Yes, the mic is that sensitive.Even while driving they could hear when I shifted gears.Not that it's obtrusive to the other person on the phone, it's just good to be aware they can hear it all.

What more to say about such a simple device. Form Fit and Function are all there and I would recommend this product.In fact, I just ordered another - it makes a great gift! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not ready for prime time.
When I first tried this speakerphone, I was in a quiet room. It worked great. I couldn't wait to try it in my car. The next day, in my car, it couldn't seem to understand my voice dialing commands. I finally tried dialing directly from the phone itself. I could hear the person on the other end fine, but she said she could barely hear me through all the static. Later I tried it with the car sitting still and the engine off. It worked ok then, but as soon as I started the car, it got drowned in static again. The same thing happened in my office where there are a couple of PCs running. The ambient noise made it impossible to use. Now neither my car nor the office are very loud places, but the minor ambient noise seems to be too much for this speakerphone to handle. And the static renders voice commands useless, as the phone cannot understand what you're saying through all the static. When I called the vendor for a return authorization, she told me they'd had several of these returned for the same reason, so I don't think mine was just a faulty device. There seems to be a serious design flaw here. I'm surprised at that, because my Jabra BT250 works perfectly. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional.
What's most impressive about the Krusell's case for my RAZR is the outstanding quality. It is by far the best of all the cases that I've looked at prior to my purchase. You'll spend a bit more, but I'm a big fan of you get what you pay for. Don't waste your time with any others. The quality construction and materials make me feel like my phone is secure and safe on my side, which is especially important for the price of the V3.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best case option for the Treo 650
After trying a multitude of cases to keep my Treo 600 and now my Treo 650 safe, this one is well above the other options. It keeps my Treo in the case (where it's safe) when I use it and doesn't cover the keys with plastic making it hard to use my thumboard. When not in use, a firm cover flips over the screen, keeping it safe even when it's dropped down in my bag, or clipped to my hip. I highly recommend this case. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars sounds great, but the earclip has got to go
I am very surprised how well the microphone works without sounding distant or like a speakerphone.I've even tested it myself by calling a couple of my own different voice mail boxes and leaving messages.And no one on the other end during conversations has had any problem hearing me, or even seems to know that I am on anything other than a regualar handset.I use this headset with a Plantronics 900mhz wireless transmitter with handset lifter witha business phone system.Ironically, even the Plantronics rep advised against using one of the cell phone line of headsets with their office phone headset amplifiers, but didn't offer much reason why, maybe because they retail for $100 less.But I wanted something very small and simple to wear while I am on and off the phone at work.I will have to say the wirelss headset amp that I use does have different settings for both headset and microphone, so maybe I have it set just right to compensate for whatever difference there is between cordless phone and cell phone headsets , if there is any difference at all.All I know is that I havn't had to mess with the settings at all and it works excellent, no more trying to do a two handed job at work while holding a office phone handset in one hand or on my neck.As for the special ear hook design, I didn't like it.It's ok to wear for say less than 10 minutes, but any longer than that, and my ear would get sore from the inside and out, I guess because of the slight bit of pressure from the rubber ear hook.The hook also makes it a bit difficult to take in and out quickly with one hand when answering calls. But I liked the quality of the phone so much, I deciced to modify it.I ripped off the rubber ear hook, and ground the edge down smooth, so now I have a regualar earbud headset!Easy to take in and out and works excellent.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
I have been using this headset for years. I even bought one for my wife and she loves it too. It is very comfurtable on the ear when driving. You leave it there and pull it down a bit when you get a call. I have tried dozens of headsets and this is the only one both my wife and I like.

4-0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, decent voice quality
I purchased this headset earlier this year to use primarily at home.The design is comfortable for an in-the-ear device, and it stays in place quite well.The speaker sound quality is very good, but the microphone leaves something to be desired.When I use it outside on the street, my friends often cannot hear my voice, and even in a quiet room, people complain that it can be difficult to hear.

All in all, a useful headset.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor voice quality, microphone
While I like the form factor of this device, it has poor voice pick-up.I have an LG VX6000 with voice dial.I cannot voice dial with this headset--the poor voice quality does not allow the phone to recognize my instructions.*In order for a person to hear me clearly, I have to bring the mic over so it's right next to my mouth.

Also, the earbud "bands" continue to pop off--very poor design.It's fairly comfortable as far as earbuds go, but it's a pretty low-quality device.Skip this and buy something better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best "teardrop" design I've seen
This is the best "teardrop" (small dangling microphone)low-profile designheadset I've seen.The only one that compares is the "Motorola Hands Free Silver Headset for all Motorola Headset Compatible Phones" which doesn't stay in as well, but has a better distance between the mic and the earphone.But the problem with both is that they break easily. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Earbud works great with minor modification
I've been using the same Jabra earbud for over 2 years now (in fact mine is so old, it's the original design with the microphone built into the earpiece), and it still works great, with one minor modification.The ear gel kept falling off when I removed the earbud (leaving the gel in my ear), and also fell off all the time in the car, in my pocket, and everywhere else.So, after the second time I lost my ear gel, I glued the gel on the earbud (with "Household Goop"), and it's been working great since.The reception and transmission have been fine with my Motorolla phone, and now I'm buying one for my wife.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great after 3 years
After trying many other earpieces, this is the only one I will use -- I can't use an earbud without the molded eargel (I don't have that little "dip" in the outline of my ear canal so the little buds w/o gels fall out) and I hate those earpieces that wrap around your ear or have a boom coming out the side of your head -- they are too weighty and bulky and eventually become uncomfortable.

Plus, I really like the eargel.It's lightweight, funnels the sound directly into my ear (no variations because it's always in the same place) and provides a lot of security -- it never falls outwhen I'm walking or getting out of the car. If it feels uncomfortable, you are probably using the wrong size eargel and should try another size.

Third, and probably most important, the sound is terrific -- in both directions.After many years of use (the same product but I've had to replace it once -- the cord frayed from constantly being bent and put away) I've never even once had anyone complain that they couldn't hear me, that I sounded far away or fuzzy, etc.95% of my use is in a moving car -- a truck -- which isn't as quiet as a Mercedes or BMW;it still sounds really good.

This product works exactly as it should, is comfortable to wear and is VERY inexpensive.What more could you ask?!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of Crap
I have the version of this with the cord winder built in (only difference is it does not have the on-cord answer button). As most other reviewers have said, the quality of the microphone could only be worse if it did not work at all.

I would assume Jabra would have "field tested" the unit, such as normal use in a relatively quiet moving car, but I guess not, since your caller simply cannot understand you in that situation.

Personally I also feel that the eargels are horrible no matter what size I use- feels like I have an acorn jammed in my ear.

3-0 out of 5 stars Yes it breaks within 6 months, but its the best design...
I have been using the Jabra earbud for over 3 years now.Its been a love/hate relationship.I love them because they fit so easily into the ear, the sound quality is great and I love the in-line answer button.I hate that I have had to replace them approximately every 6 months or so!The cord shorts out and just stops working. On one set, I had the ear bud become detached from the unit.Well, that's my two cents, excuse while I order another set...

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a good headset
I have owned this product for about a year now and half of the time I get complaints that I sound far away or that people can't hear me. I'm going to buy a new one, try to avoid this product. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Treo600 Case
I have always wanted a Treo 600 case that doesn't make it bulky, doesn't force me to flip open and covers entire surface including screen and keyboard and still be functional. This one works great and I get very good sensitivity on touch screen even though I also have a screen protective layer under the transparent plastic cover of this case. This case also has all the right cut-outs for camera, speakerphone, mic, hotsynch cable, power and vibrate buttons, volume controls, IR port, etc and price can't be beat!

2-0 out of 5 stars Good Cases but not for Treo
I've used Krusell cases before and loved them, but this particular case wasn't designed very well.The case fits well, but the plastic cover over the top makes it very difficult to use the stylus to press down on the screen.When I took the case off I didn't wanna put it back on, because it makes it so tough to access use the Treo with the stylus.I don't recommend this solution at all unless you want to use it temporarily when your Treo really needs to be protected and not everyday. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Fair but not good
I had a number of problems with this product. It didn't fit in my ear very well, wasn't particularly comfortable, people complained that I sounded like I was on a speaker phone, the inline volume control should have had a mute button, the inline volume control was kind of heavy (because of the batteries), and the thing looked ugly.

It broke not long ago and wasn't worth getting replaced. It got binned instead and I don't miss it, but now I am looking for a good replacement.

1-0 out of 5 stars very dissapointed
I used this headset about 3 times before I got tired of the complaints from the other end of the phone.People complained that they could not hear me, or that I was not coming through clearly enough.I used it with the amplifier.

I also found the build quality to be very poor.Trying to turn the volume control thumbwheel was not easy.In short, I should return them, but not worth the return shipping.They're now at the bottom of my junk drawer...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Headset - but caution to Treo 600 owners
I bought this headset to use with my Treo 600. When I got the first one, I thought it was defective - I got no sound at all. The good people at Amazon sent me a replacement right away at no charge, and the new one ALSO had no sound. This made me suspicious, and looking very carefully, I could see that the indention around the jack receptacle on the Treo is just a tiny, tiny bit too small and interfered with the plastic base of the plug on the headset - thus preventing complete insertion. Really pushing it in HARD got me a connection - but the final solution was an xacto knife. The plug is molded of very soft plastic, and I just trimmed perhaps 1mm of material from the edge of the plug, and now it fits great.

The performance is good - it fits your ear securely due to its design - the eargels are a personal matter of preference - and I also never use the battery power (it's quite loud enough without it), although I wish the battery didn't have to be inserted for it to work (the weight is a bit bothersome). Overall, I like this headset, and have been using it over all my others since I got it. Recommended - but for Treo owners, prepare to do a little bit of trimming to assure ease of use.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best I've found.... so far
This is my third headset and the best of the bunch so far.

Things I like about the Jabra Proboom:
1. Ear wrap actually fits my ear.My first headset practically crushed my ear and was uncomfortable for conversations of over 5 minutes.My second headset is just the opposite, it won't stay put, and I have big ears.
2. Sound quality is good on Lo setting (not amplified) and with volume turned to max.
3. Apparently sound quality from boom microphone is good, according to the people I have called.

Things I don't like about the Jabra ProBoom:
1. The mid-cord volume control.I'd like to chop it right out.Pretty worthless.I don't need the battery amplification, (Hi setting).The built-in volume control distorts.From what I can tell, turning the volume all the way up is pretty much a pass-thru.Lowering the volume distorts the sound, the more you lower the more distortion.You'll probably do what I do and leave it turned up and use the volume control on your phone.

Not a bad unit for the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love It!
I love this earpiece because it is so much more comfortable than other models. The ear piece itself is smaller than other models so it doesn't pinch or ache. I can wear it for hours at a time. Sound quality is good although the high setting can sometimes become distorted. Overall, I'd highly reccomend this ... Read more
