The BT250v's design is very inconspicuous and most of the headset is concealed behind the user's ear. The headset ends with a Mini-Gel, which goes into the user's ear canal. Such a design helps block ambient noises and also channels the incoming sound directly into your inner ear. The headset comes with several different size Mini-gels to fit different ears. Adjusting the headset for left-right ear is also very easy - just turn the Mini-gel to 180 degrees. A flexible rubber arm connects the ear-piece to the main body which is hidden behind the ear and holds most of the headset's electronics and battery. A rocker switch is used to adjust the volume and a multi-function button are located on the outer side of the headset's main body. The buttons are well spaced out, with good response when pressed.

Since the unit does not contain any moving parts, with the exception of the pivoting Mini-Gel it should be very durable and drop-breaking resistant.
