Is The Jabra Bt800 Bluetooth Headset For Cell Phones Any Good?
This highly anticipated Bluetooth headset has some head turning
features. When we heard about the new features of the Jabra bt800
we just couldn t wait to try this one out for ourselves. You first
notice an elegant silver and black finish and a Blue lit LCD screen.
A new feature that we haven t seen before is the caller ID display
which is located on the inside of the device to keep others around
you from reading it when you are on a call.
The mini LCD screen gives you the ability to see who is calling
and be able to cycle through recently received calls. Although you
can use this feature to call back the last number that you received,
you cannot check your phonebook or call back old number in your
call log. The caller ID feature works flawlessly even when tested
at the full 30 feet Bluetooth maxes out at. Having a call display
feature on the Bluetooth head set really frees yourself from your
Pairing is somewhat of a taunting task. Jabra states in the manual
the primary way of pairing the handset to a Bluetooth cell phone
is with a tiny port near the multifunction button. While the primary
pairing method works fine you have to use a styles to press the
tiny port, and to carry it with you at all times is absurd. There
is a second way to pair the device with the Jabra Bluetooth menu.
As you may have noticed this with Jabra Bluetooth head sets that
this is a lot different from the BT250 behind the ear style. Jabra
has gone back to the traditional design of sitting over the ear.
The design the Jabra bt800 uses is very comfortable and worked
fine while doing very active activities, such as jogging or biking.
Sound quality was excellent. Inbound sounds were sharp and crisp
and the people on the other end of the conversation reported to
hear us very clearly.
