Could have been 5 star,
This review is from: Jabra Clipper Bluetooth Stereo Headset (Accessory)Firstly, I would say that this product could be fantastic.
I would rate the battery, audio and reception very highly. You can even use your own headphones.
So why 2 stars?
It's 3.5mm headphone socket becomes faulty after 2 weeks of reasonable usage.
I bought the Clipper on the 9th Aug, needed a replacement due to a faulty connection by the 26th Aug, now on the 14th Sept my second pair have gone the same way.
This is very frustrating, it was a good price, good audio. Looks like I'll have to send these back for good and get something more expensive.

Thanks Kevin for this review - I read it and hoped you were unlucky (if you see what I mean, in the nicest possible way) with your Clipper, but indeed the same thing has happened to mine. It lasted 4 weeks before the headphone socket has become faulty.
I completely agree - the potential for this product is brilliant and the 4 weeks use out of it was excellent... the build quality obviously has issues though. A shame. I'll see if another company do something similar.

I'm still pre-breakdown, only had mine a few days, but thought I'd warn you away from the Sony Ericsson MW600, because it crashes, and is unrecoverable until the battery drains (2 days wait time). FYI. Why do all these bluetooth devices completely suck in some fundamental way? :P

Thanks for the advice! I ended up trying a 2nd Clipper to see if I was just unlucky, but nope - the headphone socket has become dodgy again despite me looking after it very well.
I'm thinking of trying the Jabra BT3030 - Even though it's the same company, it has good reviews. Finger's crossed!

Hi Pete, how did you fare with the BT3030? Or did you get something else?

I did indeed buy the BT3030 and have been using it successfully since July. I use it at the gym and on lunchtime walks and I can honestly say that it's a good piece of kit. Sometimes at the gym when my phone is in my pocket and the BT3030 is around my neck it can lose signal for a couple of seconds, but this is quite rare.
Definitely a good purchase and it shows no signs of a dodgy headphone socket so far.
