I have five of that model. It was the first headset I purchased when the Pearl came out. I found a guy on eBay selling them for $11, so I stocked up [but gave two to friends].
I also have maybe 30 high end stereo head and ear phones accumulated over time [high end meaning $75 to $200, so not that high end]. In comparison to those devices, the Jabra is VERY GOOD for what it is and the price, but of course it cannot compare to better quality dedicated headphones.
I have two Seidio 2.5mm to 3.5mm headphone adapters and while my headphones work great on the Pearl, I have found myself almost always using the Jabra because it is so convenient [small, no adapter to remember to bring along, etc.]
Bonus Tip: I have used the Jabra's microphone on calls. People on the other end have said they could NOT tell I was on a cell phone, the quality was that clear.
Bonus Tip: When walking and the wind has been blowing hard, callers have not heard me talking. But when I completely cupped the Jabra microphone in my hand, as if capturing a bug, the people could hear me loud and clear with no wind noise.
I thought that was amazing, that when talking into a cupped hand, that my hand did not block the microphone's reception. You would think a thick hand completely covering the microphone would diminish its performance.
