Question What's the BEST WIRELESS HEADSET for 7100T??

Please Login to Remove!

I've read all the basic postings on the headsets, but I am hoping someone could refer me to a bluetooth enabled one that is best at reducing background noise. I tend to be in noisy environments and this was a problem with past phones. For example, my number one problem is when driving, my vehicle tends to have a windy sound that carries over on the phone. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

I have the Motorola HS820 and never had any problems or complaints, unlike the BlackBerrys built-in microphone...

I've been using the Plantronics v510 with no complaints from anyone on the other end.

I would heartily recommend the Motorola HS-810 or HS-850 if you can stick with v3.8 of the handheld software. The BT headset volume level was lowered from v3.8 to v4.x, so some headsets are no longer usable in all but the quietest environments if you upgrade to 4.x. A fix is currently under evaluation from RIM.

FYI - Also, for reference, RIM supported headsets and car kits can be found at the following link:

I use the Plantronics M2500 that came free with my 7100t and I have no problems with volume.

Got my wife a Logitech unit, and it seems to work well, especially given its relatively low price point.

Default USB Charge

Do any of these charge on the USB cable like the 7100, I'm not that keen on adding another power charger to my bag!

The Jabra BT800, which I use for my 7100g, utilizes an USB cable.

Peace and blessings,

I've tried the Moto 810, Scala 500, BT800 and the Flamingo. I'm using the Flamingo now. Works great, save the lack of wind noise cancelation. If I had it to do over again, I would have stayed with the Scala 500. It's small, has noise cancelation and is $40 online

Stay away from the Jabra BT800, you won't be able to answer calls with it reliably.

I really like the GN Netcom 6210. I spend about half of my time in my office and half of my time on the road. The 6210 works with an office phone (it has an adapter) and a bluetooth cell phone and gets 8 hours of talk time. I like it because i put the headset in my ear and no matter if my office or cell rings I can answer it with the same headset.

The sound is good and I have never had anyone complain. The one dilemma I have is pressing the button toggles between the two phones, so, when on the road, if my cell rings i can't answer the phone with the headset (if I do press the button, the headset searches for my office phone and can't find it).

I am actually surprised to never see anyone review this, because it works very well and is nice to have in both my office and my cell.

Indeed, I was aware of the Jabra BT800 shortcomings going in, because it is currently not compatible with the BB7100x series. However, that being said, I still wanted the device for it's noise cancellation feature, USB charging, LCD readout, and vibration capabilities, go figure. Your Bluetooth mileage may vary.

Peace and blessings,

i've got a Jabra FreeSpeak 250 and I can't say I'm pleased...it's always about a second late...whether i'm the one dialing or whether i'm answering a call...sounds like everyone agrees that there are much better devices out there...!

I have the Body Glove BlueSport bluetooth headset.



The bluetooth connection is great. It's light-weight and doesn't have a piece jammed into my ear, like the Jabra.

It was sold to me on the idea that it was somehow able to repel wind noise. But the wind noise is still there. Even if it wasn't, the sirens and traffic are deafening to those on the other end of my calls. Digital picks up everything. So I only make calls indoors.

It does charge with a mini-USB connection plugged into the wall.
