Navigating the menu is a simple process as well, simply press the center mute/menu button to access the menu, then use the volume control to move up and down the options. Then you can use the two bottom buttons to select items or go back to the previous screen. It would have been nice to have the ability to pair devices through the menu but pairing is actually done through a small hole where you have to push a stylus pen into a small hole.
The BT800 has very clear sound and good range. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet with a clear line-of-sight. The BT800 has very good range, although some static is apparent when you go beyond 15 feet. It usually takes a second or two for the phone to acknowledge the connection when you push the buttons, but the delay is minor. The Digital Signal Processing automatically adjusts the volume level for noisy environments. The noise canceling microphone does a great job of reducing noise and giving clear sound to the person at the other end of the phone.
Easy to charge is this great device, the BT800 uses a USB connection instead of your regular power cable. Thus you can charge your headset the same way you charge your Blackberry or iPod. The USB cable comes with the headset to ensure that you can charge your BT800 straight from your PC. Talk time varies, but maxed out at around 5 and a half hours which is plenty since youâ€™ll never get that same talk time out of your Blackberry.
The Jabra BT800 is a great device. Although we didnâ€™t find much use for the LCD display the other features definitely make it worth consideration. The noise cancellation is excellent, and it has decent overall audio properties. It’s also pretty comfortable for a bulkier device. The ring tones and vibration mode insures that you will always know where your head set is, so no more scrambling to find it anymore when receiving a call.
The Jabra BT800 retails for $149.99.
