Continuing with the BlueTooth headset reviews, today we look at the Jabra Freespeak 250. The Jabra Freespeak 250 in comparison to other headsets has a slightly sleeker and thinner design, but with any headset still looks Borg-like around the ear. A very lightweight design at only 23 grams which is the same weight as the Plantronics M2500 but with a much more comfortable feel. This Jabra has a very nice fit for any size ear which. It doesnâ€™t become loose easily, and with different size gel pieces you can be sure.
A short boom mike stays close to the head which is where the control buttons and battery are located. Other controls on the Jabra are a volume rocker and a multifunctional button for on and off, call answering, and to prepare the headset for synching. Easy to locate and fair sized buttons take no time at all to become accustomed to. A tiny blue light flashes when the headset is ready to pair, and also turns off when it is fully charged.
Charging takes about 2 full hours. You place the headset on a separate cradle, which doubles as a belt clip. Jabra promises a total of 8 hours talk time and 10 days standby time. The average standby we got was 11.5 days which is very impressive, proving how well this battery is. The Jabraâ€™s audio quality makes both parties conversations very clear, no complaints all around.
