Jabra Bluetooth Headset BT 110

I had always wanted to own a bluetooth headset but was discouraged by the price and almost zero utility for me. While browsing moneycontrol, I came across an advertisement promoting a Jabra headset for Rs.749/-. Now I am a sucker for cheap bargains and even more so when it comes to gadgets. That Jabra is the no. 1 bluetooth headset manufacturer in the world didn't help things either and I succumbed to temptation. I can always use it while driving, couldn't I?

The link took me to Mobilenxt another network 18 venture, so I knew it was a site I could trust. There it was, lowest price on bluetooth ever. The shipped box indicated an M.R.P of Rs. 2830/-. The site was giving it away for Rs. 751/- (including Rs. 2/- for shipping).

What I liked:
1) Dirt cheap
2) No hassles of A/C charging while travelling. It runs on a single AAA battery but does not feel heavy on the ear. Good battery life.
3) Seamless pairing with my Sony Ericsson W950i
4) Supports voice dialing
5) World renowned Jabra's Mini-Gel technology.

What I didn't like:
1) Doesn't really hold on to the ear and at times gives the impression that it is about to fall off. Being new to bluetooth headsets, I don't know if it is true for other products as well.

If you want to get one for yourself, head here:

Another similar bargain:
USB LED Light Rs. 58/- with free shipping.

  1. I have heard that once the headset goes to standby mode, you cannot received the call directly on this hands free. First you have to receive the call on the mobile and then transfer to the headset. Is this true or are we able to recieve the calls directly from the headset itself.

    Also hows the overall sound quality for this ?

  2. @vikram: I had a lot of apprehensions about the same but they were all unfounded. The headset works brilliantly. Even if the headset is switched off completely, if your phone rings and your phone's bluetooth is on, simple pressing the receive button on the headset will transfer the call to it. You don't have to touch anything on the phone. So yes, you can receive the calls directly on the headset as long as the phone's bluetooth is on.

    Overall sound quality is good and on par with any other bluetooth headset out there. I can't comment on the battery life yet as I am yet to run out of juice on the first one.

  3. Sounds pretty neat though.

    As for the headset giving the impression of falling, try pressing the sides :D
