Jabra 250
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 doesn’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 Jabra’s audio quality makes both parties conversations very clear, no complaints all around.

    I’m so glad someone is finally doing a review of Bluetooth headsets especially with the Blackberry Devices. Our company is starting to buy the 7250s from Verizon and we are trying to find the perfect Bluetooth Headset to match. So far not very much success. Seems like each device has some sort of shortcoming.

    For me I really wanted to like the Jabera BT250, but had too many complaints from test users that it would make a poping and scratching noise on the other end and have a tendency to echo. Also seems to pick up a lot of background noise.

    I’m interested in seeing what you guys think of the Jabra BT800.

    BT800 might work with the 7250, absolutely useless with the 7520.
    I’d advise you contact Jabra before you make your purchase. They seem to have problems with most blackberries.
    Bought one for the 7520, has problems picking up calls from the headset, echoes when speaking.
