Default BB7520 and Bluetooth

Since the original thread was lost...

There is an echo issue with BB7520 with os4.0 and bluetooth. On most all headsets, when the volume is above 50-60% you will get a noticealbe echo from your own voice. This is avoidable by keeping the volume at lower levels whenever possible (this can be assisted by your choice of headset--those with speakers inside the ear canal will help more). So far in my personal quest for a bluetooth headset, I have tried the BlueTrek G2, the Bluespoon AX, the Motorola HS-810 and the 820, and the Jabra BT250. The one I am going to stick with is the Jabra BT250. I find it to be overall more comfortable than the others, and the fact that the speaker is inside the ear canal helps with keeping to volume low to avoid echo. I do wish that the Jabra was able to cancel a little bit more background noise, but that really isn't as much of an issue as the background noise with the Bluespoon or the HS-820.

I have read in a few posts of people searching for headsets that don't have echo issues with the 7520, that the Sony Ericsson HBH-300 and HBH-660 are pretty good. Both these headsets have a large following of users, and are on the upper end of the price scale. Too bad I can't find one locally to try out, as I hate to lose money if I have something shipped to me and then to ship it back if I don't like it. :(

I think I am pretty lucky. My girlfriend got me a 7520 for Christmas, as well as a Jabra BT250.

As this is the only BT headset I have ever used, I don't have much to compare it to. However, the SLIGHT echo is bearable, IMO. You basically hear your own voice in the earpiece a fraction of a second after you are talking.

As I said, I think I will be able to handle it. The BT is pretty cool stuff.

I can hear my voice in my Jabra 250. But it is like when you use a normal telephone, it isn't out of sync, so it isn't distracting to me.

Same here. I have tried just about every headset I can find locally just because it is easy for me to return them (and Best Buy actually had some good prices last month with their 20% off cellular accessories when you buy two accessories.
