I'm a very heavy user of my phone (around 6 hours a day at least) as part of my work.
I'm currently using the BT 250. It's battery allows it to work quit few hours and recharging is done in less then 1 hour.
It is a bit bigger then other headsets, but I found it to fit me better (feel more natural. With the other types I was afraid they will fall off while I was walking).
I did had some problems with other phones I used to had (Nokia 6xxx was keep connecting and disconnecting from it, I do not know if it is the phone or the headset), but I'm very happy with it now, working with the Z600.



My own question - does someone knows if the headset can be pared with a PC with a Bluetooth to be used as earphones?

The Plantronics one (their first one) has 8 hours of battery life, is light, is extremely comfortable, and comes with two ear loops of different size. Over and above this, the voice quality is superb, and it isn't tiny but it isn't TOO obtrusive. My suggestion:) Or else the new Motorola, it's TINY!

I've had a BT101 for about a year now and it's served me quite well. Never dropped a connection and it's battery life is alright. It's a bit big and after extensive wear (4 hours or more) the loop started to be uncomfortable on my ear, but for shorter periods it's served me well and didn't cost me a whole lot either.

Got a nextlink AX coming in tomorrow and am looking forward to that as well actually. AX will be a lot smaller, charge via USB which is convenient and can be paired with more than one device, which is a plus.
It goes IN to the ear instead of around it, so may muffle the external sounds coming to me. Good while calling, bad while listening to the car stereo when driving with that thing in the ear ;)
I hear only good things about the calling quality on my end (it's gotta be good considering it's in my ear) just hoping the voice part will also be good.

Testing commences tomorrow ;)

Apart from that, Have once had an SE HBH 65 (not mine but a friends) that got very hot (temperature) when in use. I found it a horrible device because of that, although the call quality was good. I've never touched another SE headset after that experience though.

Dead on arrival, maybe? You know that 1% of the phones that hit retail stores are DOA? New Quality Control guides should solve that...I hope! It sux:(

I unpacked it and found a non working buttton (the one that controls switching on and off the unit and accepting or rejecting calls... in other words THE button <_< )

After opening and closing the battery compartment the unit switched on thugh, and now I can't switch it off anymore, nor can I actually use :cry:

Strong worded email has gone out to the supplier, not heard back yet :(

How I wish Jan was still around...... :(

I've been using an SE HBH-600 since November. It's good, the battery lasts ages, the call quality is actually better through the headset than it is direct from the phone (T610) and it doesn't cost the earth.

Jabra also make good quality headsets, so I'd recommend either of these or the HBH-300 which I also have heard good things about (although it was too expensive for my budget.

Yep, the Jabra ones are EXTREMELY well made! Right now, the two brands that impress me the most, especially since they aren't mobile phone producers, are Jabra and Plantronics. Bodyglove have this STUPID one that looks all rugged, but is just...horrible. Cellink have one which is ok for a cheapy. But you can't beat quality!

Slightly off topic, but Jabra has made a headset with a display on it..... and the display is facing the head :lol: :lol:

For some reason I cannot begin to imagine the use of the display :wacko:

Perhaps it's because I was bron without a 3rd eye in my ear :unsure:

Can anybody enlighten me? :devil:

The display would be handy,if (like me) you keep your phone hidden in the centre armrest,and your bt headset on the dash.

Phone rings = Pick up bt and see whos calling and answer/or not. :)
