Default Jx10

Yes, I did read the posts above regarding the JX10, and I suppose it was my fault for not being very clear as to what info I was looking for. The info regarding sound quality is excellent, and I do appreciate everyone's sharing their experience, but I was also hoping to hear from someone who wears glasses that has used the JX10.

Sorry for the confusion

It's a plus but not a must-have feature. Clarity (on both ends), comfort, and reliability are my top three concerns. If a Bluetooth headset can meet those and then add caller ID I would probably go for it.

I generally use the OEM plastic holster with an eGrip stuck to the battery door so quickly drawing the handheld is never really a problem.

I was using the Plantronics 510 and now use the 640. The 510 is fine but the 640 is better for me as I wear glasses and its much smaller and less dorky looking. I have to use the optional ear clip as it is a bit loose for me without it. Also, the charger sleeve is very sensitive - its like it doesn't always make good contact with the headset pins.

SUFan, thanks for the info. I'm thinking I may pick one up at my local Best Buy this afternoon on my way home from work to try it out.

As for the charging sleeve, barjohn had a decent solution that sounds like it's working out well for him. Look back a few pages... something about a 1/32" thick piece of adhesive foam on the inside of the sleeve.

Thanks again!

My first post here. I thought I would weigh in with my experience.

I use the Motorola H700. I like it because I can take one look at know if it is on or off. I've never lost a signal when I am within about 20' and have a direct line of sight.

But here is the best part. When I am in my car I use a cigarette lighter adapter for the 8700. I rarely carry a headset with me for any number of reasons. But the part I really like is the cigarette lighter adapter I use for the 8700 can then be used to recharge the H700.

I get good sound. I can use the wheel for volume.

BarJohn,

I read the whole review and bought the NxZen. It's a keeper for the noise cancellation alone. I'm surprised I haven't seen more people here with one. Maybe the curve has moved in the past three months already and it was left behind... (I buy, I quit reviewing)

I purchased my Plantronics 640 with a Razr V3 and it worked great. However, when I recently got my BB 8700 people started complaining about background noise and said I sounded like I was in a tin can. I really like this devise but I am now looking for a new Bluetooth device more compatible with the 8700.

It's so loud, you have to lower the headset volume way down. Connected effortlessly with the 8700 and comes with a snazzy case full of extra connectors and ear buds. What I really like about it is that it vibrates strongly when you get a phone call so if it's in your pocket, you definately feel it. Check out the reviews for it at CNET.com.

Default Jabra BT500

My Jabra BT500 works well with my 8700c. People report that they can hear me just fine. Sometimes, in loud environments, I have trouble hearing others (even with the volume set to its highest level).

Also, I learned the hard way that the BT500's arm breaks easily. I've gone through 2 replacement arms already. I don't know if it's a manufactuer defect, or if it's my usage. However, I wrote to Jabra about my issue, and they sent me a couple replacement arms.

The good news is that the arms take about 10 seconds to replace (just pop off the entire module...all of the moving parts are really just 1 integrated piece). The bad news is that I keep needing to replace the arms every couple of months.

Oh yeah, be sure to get the software update for the BT500. It makes a significant difference in connection speed once the call is answered.

Ditto! I love my H700. I have had the H500 and HS810. I liked it so much I bought another H700 for my girlfriend to use with her PEBL. I have no issues with either.
