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.
The reason I went with this Jabra was that it had reasonable reviews for sound quality and came with an ear-hook, which is a must for me as I can't stand having anything intrusive in my ears. It cost a little more than my old LG, but it looked like it would be a step-up in quality. I had also thought that as Jabra had a large range of head-sets as that was their main job they might do a good job in comparison to jack-of-all-trades of electricals, LG.
When it arrived I was impressed with the packaging as it came with everything you would expect, device, charger and instruction manual, but it came with loads of spare ear buds and a spare ear hook. What disappointed me about the ear hook was that it was a fixed position with only one hole to insert it into which didn't move. Fortunately, the position it gave did not cause me any discomfort but my old LG had a cheap flimsy clip-on ear hook that you could move in any position you fancied. The device was suitably light, which was important so that it was comfortable to wear for long periods of time over the ear. My biggest problem though was with the ear-bud cover for the ear-phone.Read more ›
As with all these headsets, it is difficult to find one that fits perfectly and stays in-ear. This does a good job and is the best I have found so far.
1) the on-off switch disintegrated - con only now switch it on and off with a toothpic!
2) from initally being comfortable I now find it will not stay securely in my ear and it is difficult to get the position right for maximum clarity.
I've ordered a separate micro USB car charger, so the mains charger will not be required very often.
Call connection is excellent too and you can be further away from the phone than with other similar devices I have had. Good to have a spare ear loop as I kept breaking them on previous models.

This was a good headset while it worked, however after about a year the on/off button fell off, rendering it useless. Not a long term investment, but good enough.Published on 13 May 2013 by Emily
