    Hands Free Headset

    Has anyone tried the handsfree headset with Bluetooth technology? I'm considering getting one, but don't want to spend the money and then end up hating the thing. I seem to see them everywhere these days, so they must be tolerable at least. Would love to hear from anyone who uses this already?

    It's really common these day. I think the user feeling varies as the quality and weight and style of the bluetooth device. You should try it out yourself and it worths the money if you like it. I'm very happy with mine.

    I think that it is almost a necessity these days. I have one and have no complaints. If you are looking for ones for the Q definantly check out ebay as they have all kinds of stuff on there.

    I haven't checked out the Voyager yet. Right now, I'm using the Jabra JX10. Sound quality is great, but the ear hook is a bit "dainty". Never thought I'd ever use the word dainty.:p Sony Ericsson's HBH-660/662 is also a great headset, but I've passed that along to my wife. It comes with a strap, which I think is great. The JX10 includes a dock -- which is also a nice feature. As soon as I get home, I drop it in the dock. With the Sony, there would be times I grabbed my headset only to later realize that it's dead.

    i cant agree more with everyone else: bluetooth definetely rocks. it has gotten a lot better over the last couple of years. There is even a Bluetooth Stereo Headphones. A bit pricey but I know someone who has them and they sound great!! I'm saving up as we speak to get my own pair... =o)

    Problems w. bluetooth headsets

    i tried the top of the line MOTO bluetooth headset (sold at VZW for $99.99). It had a HUGE echo, not on my end but people talking to me heard themselves repeated a half a second later. I then tried a logitech at the store that the sales rep said are never returned and it was cheaper. still no luck echo'd right back. Is this a network or phone problem? are their adjustments that can me made to tune this things in better?

    i settled on the wired version for now, which is great stereo when you want to listen to songs from your Q, they were cheap ($15) and are a good back up.

    Any suggestions? my friend says his Jabra works great on his Blackberry and I never hear an echo.

    I have tried all of them, and LOVE the Jabra 500. It is comfortable, easy to use, and lasts all day (and I USE IT all day!)

    I have tried the Motorola's and just haven't found one that compares to the Jabra.

    H700 Motorola

    I have the H700 Motorola and it has worked beautifully for me. It charges with the same adapter as my Q. I keep one charger in the car and always hook it up to charge when I am driving. It's always ready to go.

    My only problem is keeping up with it when on the go...it is a little thing to keep up with! I left one in my pocket last year and washed it:wacko:...needless to say, I had to buy a new one!

    That's a big plus. I've been using the Jabra JX10. I think what I like most about it is the dock/cradle that it comes with. With other headsets, I often forget to plug them in. With the JX10, it's easy enough to just drop it in it's cradle next to my Mac.

    BT Headset Question

    Hi everyone,

    I am so glad I found this site.

    My question is this: I have a Moto HS850 headset. When I put the phone in it's case, I Lock the keyboard, but if I try to make a call with the BT headset, I can not seem to make a connection..anybody else notice this?

    Thanks

    Fab

    I have used the Moto HS810 ( I think. The Star Trek badge looking one), the H700, Jabra JX10, Jabra BT800, BlueSpoon AX2, and Logitech Mobile Traveller. The -best-, bar none, hands down BT headset I have used to date is the new Nokia BH-900. It uses a unique clip that kind of slids over the ear. Very comfortable and very secure. It has a retractable boom mic that can be extended when the caller is having trouble hearing you, and retracted the rest of the time. You can also slide the boom open to accept a call, and slide it closed to disconnect. The headset gets 8+ hours TALK time from a single charge, and... the quality is better than anything else I have heard. I can't even think of a single time I have heard as much as a crackle over this headset. Simply excellent.

    Chris --

    If you look at your JX10, the little rubber ring on the headset slides off the speaker bit pretty easily. Take this off, removed the hook, and go to Best Buy. Get yourself a 3 pack of the Jabra Eargels (the ones that look like an ear mold). Slips right on the JX10, and provides a rock solid fit. You will pretty much forget it is there at all. Also greatly improves volume on the headset.

    I have the Plantronics Voyager 500 and I like it fine. Bluetooth isn't as clean as a wired connection, but it sure makes it easy to get work done while you are on the phone.

    I have both the Toshiba and the new Motorola and the latter is great and former sucks. I am suprised and just how good the Motorola sounds. The problem I had was with my first Q; any bluetooth attacment caused it to crash. I haven't tried it with my replacment yet. But the sound was very good.

    Stereo Bluetooth Motorola HT820

    Because I have XM radio on my Q and don't want to disturb others, I was thinking of using the bluetooth headphone and also for bluetooth phone calls. Has anyone tried the HT820? It sells for 60 with shipping on Ebay.
