Jabra BT800 review


Given the extended set of features, it is normal for Jabra to go with a slightly larger form factor for the BT800. Almost the entire front is silver, with the sides and almost the entire back being in dark grey color.

LCD
 

The front of the headset features a jog dial which is used to adjust the volume. A blue LCD button is located in the middle of the dial. The LED indicates battery status and pairing mode. When pressed during a call, it acts as mute button. If pressed in a stand-by mode, it invokes the Menu. The back of the BT800 houses the blue backlit LED with resolution of 21 x 64 pixels. Having an LCD is one of the features that distinguishes the headset from the rest. The LCD is used to show Caller ID info, to browse the menu, and check the battery status. Keep in mind please that the display does not show Caller Name and does not keep track of missed calls.

multi-function buttons

Just below the LCD are the rubber buttons to answer/hang up and the power on/off button. The buttons have one nipple each and are easy to find whenever the headset is worn, but are somewhat hard to press.

Pivoting hook

To the right of the LCD is the ear-piece. It is raised and slightly angled to the left. The ear-piece is not like the Jabra BT250's one which goes inside your ear canal. The BT800 just sits on top of your ear.
Around the ear-piece is the stem of the ear-hook. The hook rotates around its base and allows the headset to be worn on your left or right ear. 2/3 of the hook is made of soft-rubber which brings some comfort when wearing this not very light headset.
Putting the headset is relatively not hard and is easier done with both hands (still after some training you put it on with just one). No matter how the headset is positioned, it still wobbles if the head is shaken vigorously.
