Default Jabra c220s

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone have this model or the c120s to vouch for it's quality? Tonight is Christmas shopping time and I want it for "myself"......
I will be shopping for the family also, just want these while I'm doing some shopping.
PS.....I'd rather have the c220s. What it looks like to me is just the ear cradle thingy that makes them different.

I have the C220s and they are fantastic, I use them everyday. I am bummed though because I lost the audio adapter to them that converts the 2.5mm plug to a 3.5mm plug so I can use the headphones with my iPod. These are the most comfortable headphones I have owned. I use the smallest rubber earphone attachments and I forget they are in my ears when they are on.

Good luck and if you don't need the audio adapter I would be happy to pay for shipping if you want to part with it.

Thanks for the reply. I might not need the adapter, but I'll keep it just in case something new comes my way that needs a 3.5 plug for a headset. Sorry.

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.
