Short Review of my Bluetooth Headset Jabra BT 250v
Two weeks ago, I got my new (and first) bt headset.
I bought it on ebay for 30 EUR.
It came without the original box or any instruction manuals,
but that's Ok since you can get the manual on jabra.com
I like its design,
its pretty light and I can wear it for a long time,
without the headset bothering me.
It's much bigger than other headsets,
but in exchange it comes with 300 hours of standby
(smaller headsets often only have like 70-100 hours)
I don't like the design of the charger,
because it's kinda bulky and you can only charge
the headset with the original charger.
(But again, you don't even need to take it with you on a weekend trip)
The headset comes with the normal functions of every bt headset.
Using the 3 buttons, you can:
-accept incoming calls
-dismiss incoming calls
-turn the volume up/down
-activate voice dialing (I never tested this function)
-call last used number
The last function activated ifselt 2-3 times while carrying
the headset in my jeans - thats pretty annoying.
A very decent blue led shows the headset status(off,on, on a call) and batterd status (normal, low, very low).
The best function of the headset is the vibrate function.
This is also why I bought it, because the Ameo lacks this (imho really important) function.
Inside your jeans, the vibrating headset fells like any mobile phone.
Wearing it behind your ear, it feels kinda strange the first times, but you get used to it.
But note: you cannot turn off this function!
The phone quality is okay,
not better than with other bt headsets I've tried.
Your partner sounds a bit distant, but you can understand him flawlessly.
The problem that you partner claims of not being able to understand you
isn't solved by this headset, though.
Please don't understand me wrong.
Using the headset he can understand you without problems most of the time.
But the problem some users have with their Ameo (bad speech quality)
isn't fixed by this headset.
The battery is pretty good,
I've only charged it twice now.
The only problem I still have, is that the battery of my Ameo
is empty within one day (without using the device at all),
when having bluetooth turned on all the time.
All in all, I would definitely buy it again,
because it's a must have accessory,
if you use the Ameo as your primary phone.
