Comfort:


Attaching and removing the hands-free device is quick and easy with one hand only. If you feel some kind of discomfort when you first attach the device to your ear, make sure that the rubber coated hook is fixed properly around your ear. It is made of plastic material that enables you to curve it, so that it fits best to the shape of your ear.

The attaching of the device is stable. Though, when you make abrupt movements, you have the feeling that it will fall down. This is hardly possible because the hook reaches almost to the end of the ear and in this way surrounds it well.

This device, with its 18 grams, is one of the heaviest devices of the company and you start to feel it in 2-3 hours of use. However, it doesn’t cause feeling of discomfort and annoyance even in 5-6 hours of use.

Conclusion:

Even thought being a mid-tier model, BH-600 is truly the best DSP-enabled hands-free we have tested so far. Our previous winner, the Plantronics 665 offered worse DSP performance, a lot shorter battery life and slightly worse sound quality.

We had really hard time thinking of any CONS and we really are just in love with it and we highly recommend it.

Pros

  • Well performing DSP
  • Long talk time for a headset with DSP technology
  • Comfortable for long use

Cons

  • Heavier than the average
  • Volume keys are hard to press

After having this for a couple of months I can somewhat agree to the score here. The battery life has surpassed that of the rated figures. I let the headset sit, and after 11 days it was still on. It can easily go for a week with about 2 hours of talk time. Phenomenal battery life. The only low points are comfort, fit, and loudness. Because of the design, it might not fit your ear properly, and it doesn't fit mine well at all, since i have a small ear opening. Also, it doesn't sit very well for long periods of time, such as more than an hour. The sound quality I thought was very good, but the problem for me was how soft it sounded. Callers sounded great, but the headset just couldn't get loud enough for me.

And BH-600 was on 10 September, 2007... Why Plantronics 665 becomes a previs winner...
