4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, comfortable, but yet another proprietary USB plug, 22 Oct 2008
This review is from: Jabra BT530 Bluetooth Headset (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I have several headsets, and I've been using Bluetooth headsets since they were available.

This headset is surprisingly small and light. The design looks even better in "real life", and the build quality feels good and solid. It has a comfortable fit, and this is truly one of those headsets I could forget on my ear. A selection of ear gels are supplied with the headset. Receiving sound it good, with a quite full frequency range. Its microphones and noise removal really works. Tactile feedback is good, and there is no doubt when the keys has been pushed. The on/off slider prevents the device from being switched on by accident. Bluetooth range is as expected about 10m visible line.

On the downside, Jabra has introduced yet another non-standard USB plug with the exact same width as the normal mini-USB, but slightly thinner. You cannot use a standard charger, though a normal-to-proprietary cable is supplied in the package. The on/off button doesn't exactly slide easily, and activating one of the three buttons for volume up/down, answer/call is pressing the headset against your ear. The three buttons are easy to press, and given a little practice it is possible to hold the headset between thumb/middle finger while pressing the button with the index finger. The microphone is somewhat sensitive to wind, so this is preferably for in-door use, car use etc.
