Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

With up to 8 hours talk time and up to 240 hours standby, JABRA FreeSpeak 250 is the ultimate hands-free and wire-free solution that connects your mobile phone to your headset via Bluetooth radio technology instead of a wire. FreeSpeak 250 works up to 30 feet away from your mobile phone. Talk freely even if your phone is inside a briefcase, a pocket, or across the room. All calls are transmitted wirelessly to your earpiece. FreeSpeak 250 gives you easy, intuitive access to volume controls and features LED and audible status indicators.

Smart, stylish and lightweight. Weighing less than an ounce, FreeSpeak 250 is made of a soft, sound-absorbing elastomer material that reduces distortions, resulting in crisp sound quality. The earpiece and microphone boom fit behind either ear for a comfortable, secure fit. The earpiece also features the new JABRA MiniGel, an evolution of our patented EarGel. This soft, ergonomic gel tip channels sound directly into your ear for better reception. This improves your ability to hear conversations clearly even in noisy environments.

Charging cradle (charger/holder) FreeSpeak 250 comes with a charging cradle which doubles as the headset holder. The charging cradle includes a snap-on clip to hold the earpiece to your belt or purse when not in use.

The Jabra BT250 is a godsend for people who want to stay within the boundary of the new UK driving laws, without butchering the dashboard of their car for a permanent kit.
Call quality between the Jabra BT250 and my current handset (a Nokia 6310i) is superb, with many callers questioning the fact that I am even driving at all, when speaking via the BT250 in the car.
Battery life is superb, with up to a week on standby, using the Jabra for perhaps 30-40 minutes per day. Charge time is about 2 hours from totally flat. Placing the headset into your ear takes a little getting used to, and some 'ear-lobe abuse' took place over the first few days, until I became accustomed to slipping the headset on correctly.
The unit works best with 1-2 metres of the phone; much further than this and the call quality starts to degrade a little (manifests itself as a background crackle). However, this distance is fine for the car - the headset is in my right ear, and the phone is on the passenger seat.
The Jabra BT250 is provided with four 'mini-gels'; two large and two small, depending on what you find most comfortable, you can use either size.
Overall, this is a superb product, which expands on the already good quality of its predecessor, the BT200. The main bonus is the extended battery life - with a week's standby, this headset is worth the extra £10.
Amazon's price is the best you will find - Editor's Choice for safe hands-free driving this Summer!

Today, I spent 4 hours trawling around all my local phone shops, and tried on literally a dozen different headsets and this is the only one that would fit my ear. Definately worth a purchase if you have anything other than midget-sized ears, as the headset is really flexible yet strong.
The mini-gel earpieces are also fantastic, as there are two different sizes included with the headset, and spares should they ever break. There is also a belt clip included - handy should you ever want to take the headset off (that's if you remember you're wearing it after 5 minutes use).
As for the call quality, I am using mine on a v500, and I can only say that I'm shocked. Not only can I hear people talking more clearly than with my phone, they can also here me more clearly too. The Jabra BT250 is worth every penny.

I had a Jabra BT200 and found that the battery life was just not long enough for the types of journeys I do (sometimes 8 hours in a day, with no time to charge it up). I have now moved on to the BT250, which is great. The battey will last for my long journeys - much better. The comfort and sound quality remaing superb as in the BT200. I have tried some of my friends headsets by other manufactuers and I think that the Jabra is the most comfortable by far. My friends have tried mine and they agree - they will be buying one soon!

Looks great and was dead easy to set up and I was even impressed by the sound clarity over the road noise even with the roof down! Unfortunately, and I was interested in a previous review above, that the main button ceased to function after about 6 weeks and was left in a permanently 'on' position. This hasn't mean't I cannot use it, but it's annoying when I want to and find it's discharged even though I only charged it the day before.
When I decide to buy another, I will be looking for something a little more robust.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with this headset - the quality is good, battery life so far seems excellent and after a few minutes you generally forget you are wearing it. However - on first use it did take me a long time to get the thing into my ear! After some time this becomes easier but a bit frustrating at first. Another annoyance for me is the buttons are very sensitive - due to their positioning it is quite easy to press the action button when putting the earpiece in, and re-dailing your last number. Overall, It interfaces perfectly with my nokia 6310i, and can use the special hands-free functions of that phone - setup of this, and normal functions, is clearly (if briefly) described in the manual. The earpiece also comes with spare soft-plastic inserts for the reciever which is a bonus. As others, I did not find the promised '10 meters range' to be realistic - it generally works well if your cell-phone is on your belt, best if on the same side as the headset.
A good piece of kit though. Buttons on the headset include volume up/down and a dial/answer/hold button. Not all cell-phones will support the hold however.

This headset is pretty good. Unlike the 200, this one has much better talk time and standby time. Also unlike others on offer, the 250 sits so comfortably behind the ear, you can barely feel it. It is neatly tucked away behind the ear. The downside is that calls can be a bit crackly if you stray too far from the phone but on the whole a great device. I use it with my Nokia 6310 and Sony Ericcson T610i with ease.

works fine, easy to set up but it has nothing like the claimed 10m range. It's more like 4m and the reception gets worse if you turn your head. However, with a Sony Ericsson T610 you can use voice dialing, last number redial and hold calls plus you come across very clear to people. They wouldn't know you were using a headset.
