Plantronics 510, Nokia BH-900 and BH-800

This Nokia model is truly large; more than twice as big as its smaller brother BH800, it only looks normally-sized when placed next to one the same size category – for example Plantronics 510. In relation to the latter it seems to be even a bit small due to its shape – a more standard, elongated rectangle. BH900 features a specific hanging mechanism that looks like clips, symmetrically located on both sides, thus ‘impairing’ its otherwise slim body.

The Microphone

It is clear that the definitely sizable dimensions were not sufficient for Nokia, so they installed a sliding microphone: it moves forward to get nearer to the mouth for the sake of achieving a more distinct and real sound. Doing so is easy, despite the lack of a relief part to hold. It is made of dark, grey-blue plastic, unfortunately not difficult to smear with fingerprints at touch. On its end it has three openings on different sides.

The rest of the corpus is also plastic, though not so glossy. The goal is solely less weight, and the achievement is 18 grams. This is not a bad weight for large business-oriented headset and the weight distribution is also even, not displeasing for the ear. Strangely, there is no rubber round the plastic earpiece to ‘fix’ onto the ear.

The Keys

The unit disposes of several buttons: a scroller for sound level adjustment, one for managing conversations, and a power key. Nokia deserve our sincere admiration for the 3-direction scroll, which can not only move up and down and be pressed for muting, but what is most important – is very convenient and effortlessly usable as well, just like the one of BH800 and in contrast to almost all buttons of various earphones’ makes and models. The ‘headphone’ button is on the front of the device; very small in size, but bulging out and unexpectedly easy to feel. Pressing it is simply enjoyable.

I am a soft talker, and one of the things that continually bothered me with all BT headsets is that they seem to assume that you do not need a mic close to your mouth, but can pick up the sound from your ear/bone/ambient noise. No headset ever worked for me without me having to (for me) yell at the top of my voice, and even then call quality was bad. With this headset, all that is a thing of the past - people do not know I am on a headset, pairing is effortless, and the biggest plus for me -- the voice command function on this phone interfaces seamlessly to MS Voice Command on my WM6 Phone (T-Mobile MDA/HTC Wizard); My only beef is that my ears are also sensitive, so wearing the clip for long periods of time is not my bag - I end up switching to from ear to ear every hour or so and have no problems whatsoever. Your mileage may vary....... Once again - excellent audio!!
