Default Tired of the static!! Need Advice!

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I've read that the two most 'recommended' models of BT headsets, the Moto hs810 and the jabra bt250, both experience clicking and static quite frequently. I have the bt250 paired with my BB7290, and if the phone is in the belt cradle, the static is horrible. Most times taking the unit out and holding it will make the static subside, but not always is this the case.

What headset can I buy that will not have this problem. I will admit that I find the bt250 a little uncomfortable after long periods, tends to hurt on the back of the ear and on the inside where the earpiece sits. I think that something in the motorola would be more comfortable for me, but I am not sure.

Any suggestions??

I have the BT250 with a 7520 in the holster /case and have no problems with static.....Try adjusting the HS volume to a low level and use the BB volume control to the volume....

you may want to look at the comments I've posted on the BT800 with my bb7290. Although there are some sound quality issues, I find it has the least static of all, which suits me fine.

I think this may be a YMMV issue (Your Mileage May Vary), meaning that individuals units may respond better or worse than other individual units. A few people here recommended the Scala-500 for sound quality, and I recently purchased it from a local store. It has been the worst of the lot, with loud squeals, feedback, slight echoing, etc. I'm going back to the Jabra freespeak 250, which is the one I started with!

true, but take a look closely at the experience people have had with your model and os, as the bluetooth stack varies from model to model and hence you might be able to predict your mileage. I think the BT800 works well with the Rogers 7290, but as been posted elsewhere, owners of other units may want to beware.
