Jabra BT150 Review
Jabra is a company with 135 years of experience in mobile communications and for the time being, it is one of the biggest manufacturers of headsets in the world. It is the variety of its products with different styles, designs and technologies that has brought Jabra a lot of international awards and acknowledgement for its work.
Today we are going to review one of the company budget models - Jabra BT 150. This device, with basic functions and simple design, is positioned in the manufacturer’s entry level line.
Besides Jabra BT 150, you can find in the box:
- User Manual
- AC power charger
You get only the basic things that you need to use the device – nothing more, nothing less.
The design of Jabra BT 150 is a combination of black and silver color: the device is made of glossy black plastics and mirrored silvery shining buttons. The earhook is also black and for better comfort it is covered with rubber and its attaching to the headset is very stable and well done.
The dimensions of the device are 63 x 26 x 12 mm / 2.5 x 1 x 0.5 inches and because of this it is placed among the big headsets. We could say the device is rather heavy with its weight of 16 grams (for example, compared to JX10).
The device is designed in such a way that it is possible to be attached on either ear. All you need to do is to raise and turn the earhook to180 degrees to change its position. After several turns, we noticed that the attaching mechanism of the earhook loosened and it started to turn easier than before.
At the back is located not only the attaching mechanism of the earhook, but also the speaker. It is a little bit protruded in order to be closer to your auditory canal so that you can hear better. The microphone is located at the bottom of the device and its position is as close as possible to your mouth. The charging connector is located opposite the microphone and it would have been a nice decision if there were a removable cove to protect it from dirt.
On the front part of the headset is located the answer/end button, which has an oblong shape and can be pressed easily even with the soft part of your finger.
The volume up and down buttons are placed on one side of the device and their location can be felt very well because they are raised from the flat surface of the device. They also have an oblong shape and the signs “+” and “-” are carved on them and if your fingers are sensitive enough, you can even feel which one is the volume up and which one is the volume down button. All buttons have a very good tactile feedback and because of that they are really easy and comfortable for use.
The LED indicator is located in the middle of the answer/end button and it informs you for the headset status and depending on that it lights in blue or red color.
