I bought them to use as a wireless headset without suffering a nasty boss mic on shafts. They can do the job but the sound is very poor (both for the listener and for myself). I am unhappy.
+ Good sound in A2DP if you just listen and do not use the mic.
+ Work seamlessly to connect via USB for audio and mic.
+ Touch controls for volume works fine.
+ The cords are cloth-covered, which is cool.
+ Neat and gedigt made.
- Hands-free mode to talk and listen wirelessly is beneath contempt. The sound quality drops to really bad levels. Do not know if it is Jabra's fault or if bluetooth is this bad. ('ve Tried using a USB 2.0 dongle for PC and an accomodation link BT0015 and both work just as bad when driving with the windows drivers. Run to accommodation links so it will not work to Connecta to HFP (hands free profile)).
- In hands-free mode you can only adjust a program to play audio simultaneously. Eg if I want to talk via skype while playing a game and hear the sound from both does not work. There is only one program at a time (besides, with poor sound quality)
- Too bad that the cables are flat then it makes that they do not tangle as much
Asked Jabra support if sound does not get better in handsfree mode than what it is. Updating my rating if they come up with a sensible solution.
Got the answer of Jabra's support:
Unfortunately we can not provide any drivers. The problem here is that Windows 8 does not contain a native bluetooth profiles (this is actually stated in the support page of Microsoft). When the computer and the headset is paired, the system detects the profiles in the headset that are not installed in the computer, so it asks for drivers (A2DP, HFP and HSP are common Bluetooth profiles that Win8 does not cover).
Jabra not develop drivers for each device, as we do headsets for mobile phones. You can test drive with a cell phone to make sure it works well. If Microsoft can not provide drivers, unfortunately we can not offer any other solutions.
The problem is not that the HSP so on do not work they do but the restrictions listed above. The answer is not helped me (pulls away one star for poor support).
Crazy good! They mash up properly without letting the bad, even the base hangs with which other stops delivering at lower volumes.
Works well and connects to the paired phones unreal quickly!
Also run these directly with USB from your computer, Windows 8.1 with the default, acted immediately and good sound directly.
Capable of playing strong!
Sitting slightly hard at first impression, but then they sit still there when I was riding fast.
Turns out a lot of umlauts, perhaps too much to use as a headset, you start easy to shout with them.
Call quality is good, has been tested only in the office and then it sounds very good for the party.
The best wireless handset I've tested so far, nice and handy controls on the right ear cup.
Really good headphones and headsets. Great with:
- Really good sound
- Bluetooth 3.0
- Threaded input (if you want to pair with older stuff, too.)
- Sturdy box and good cables and cloth bag hanging with.
Really comfortable to wear too. The only downside is the little wooden 'sound in microphone (for the listener on the other end that is). Could be a matter of taste though.
Tested with good results on the iPhone 4S, PC with Bluetooth 3.0 together with Skype and Microsoft Lync. And even through ordinary headphones.
Have even driven Jabra app in the iPhone where you can lira music on the phone via a Dolby Digital App. There you can fiddle to sound even better according to taste and liking. Hope they work more on this app and develop it and make more cool features. Recommended.
