Introduction and Design:


“Damn, what´s all the noise? Dude, close the window, please! I can´t hear anything and I´m trying to have an important conversation here”. We bet this is something that happens quite often, especially in offices that, just like ours, overlook streets with heavy traffic. Fortunately, we can simply shut the window or get to a quieter room anytime. Sadly, this is not an option when walking along a busy street and just as Murphy´s laws go, something will come up, traffic, cars, wind or whatever to prevent you from being able to have a proper conversion the second you take an important call. Fortunately, today´s Bluetooth headsets feature noise cancellation technologies to handle environmental sounds. A new advancement of the afore-mentioned technology that supposedly makes your conversations in noisy environments more pleasant, called Noise Blackout, makes its debut with the Jabra BT530. The headset comes with 8 ear gels in 3 different sizes, 2 ear hooks in two sizes, USB cable, charger and a manual. You don’t really need the latter, since the gadget is fairly easy to operate. Just power it on using the slider on its side and it automatically enters pairing mode.

Aside from the latter, there are three more buttons – two to control volume and one to take/reject calls and re-dial. They all have discernible travel and pressing them doesn’t require much effort. We are pleasantly surprised to find out the device is charged via the standard microUSB port.

The Jabra BT530 belongs to the Smart Series of the manufacturer and relies on functionality, not on appearance. As a whole, it looks really simple and sports a nice, rubber-like finish.

I just wanted to add that this headset also supports A2DP streaming music! I just got this headset about a week ago and the battery life is amazing! I use it at work and I listen to slacker radio on my storm for about 4 to 5 hours a day! This is a must buy!
