    Tired of losing connection with my caller

    I had been using another brand of Bluetooth earpiece to talk on my work cell phone and the earpiece would lose connection with my caller and I would be talking to dead air and then they would be back again and wouldn't have heard anything I had said. This is beyond frustrating since it is my work phone. I went in and talked with an associate at Best Buy looking for something that would 1) not lose connection and 2) could be worn over the ear (not in the ear as all of the new bluetooth devices are becoming). The associate told me he had always used the Jabra and everyone he had ever talked to that owned one loved it. I was a bit surprised because this earpiece is under $30. What??? The earpieces I have been purchasing that don't work well have been over $125. He said it had to do with the actual Bluetooth frequency He said most Bluetooth operates at a 3.50 frequency which allows all manner of interference from all the other wireless devices in the area which causes the Bluetooth to lose connection. He said Jabra runs at a 4.0 and doesn't have the same issues with interference. I have to say he was right. I have been using this new Bluetooth earpiece for a week and I have not had any lost connection. The ONLY negative that I have with it is the fact that you have to reconnect it manually when you turn it on. Otherwise, it has been great! If you use your Bluetooth for work phone calls and you are frustrated with the lost connections while on the call, this might be the answer for you. It is small and it is very inexpensive.

    Bad overall design

    Posted
    LongTimeMacUser

    So the Jabra Bluetooth headsets got better reviews for phone call quality than other brands did (due to using Bluetooth 4.0 technology), but the overall design of the Jabra Classic won't allow me to test this because it simply won't fit around and in my ear! I've tried, repeatedly, to make this fit comfortably, to no avail. And, if you are on a call and attempt to adjust it so you can actually hear the caller, you hit the "end call" button, as that takes up the entire front of the unit and it's virtually impossible to not hit that if you are trying to adjust the unit so you can hear better. Very embarrassing on business calls to cut people off just because you want to hear them better! And what is up with constantly having to go to the Bluetooth menu on my phone to select this device? That is unacceptable. With my old Plantronics, once it was paired, all I had to do was turn it on, put it over my ear, and I was good to go with incoming or outgoing calls. I bought two of these on Friday, 6/22/18, and I will be returning them to Best Buy well within my 15-day return period. I don't know where to turn next, because I'm not willing to put up with the high cost and frequent dropped calls with the newer Plantronics devices and Jabra doesn't appear to be able to design devices that actually fit human beings. *sigh*

    Great price, horrible quality

    I've had this bluetooth headset for over 2 months now and I can say that I absolutely hate it. The microphone is CONSTANTLY disconnecting, especially when driving, which is extremely frustrating. I then have to power off the headset and then power it back on, which makes it even more annoying. People I'm talking to that don't know how horrible this headset is are always saying "I can't hear you". People that I talk to on a regular basis just tell me "you're disconnected again" or "and you're gone again". I've spoken to Jabra customer service and they've told me that because this headset is in a "constant search for available bluetooth devices" it receives a lot of interference. This "interference" causes the headset to disconnect either completely, or in my case partially (no microphone) anytime another bluetooth device is within range. Basically, even though you could be in the middle of a call with the Jabra Classic paired to YOUR PHONE, if somebody else has a bluetooth enabled phone or device within range it'll become visible on that device; that is the nature of bluetooth connections. However, I've never had a bluetooth headset wholly or partially disconnect just because another phone or device is in range. It's a shame, actually, because this bluetooth, when it does work and remain connected to MY phone has excellent sound quality, picks up very little background noise, and is extremely simple to use. My advice is to spend more money and get something better, unless you don't plan on using this headset anywhere near a densely populated area where, god forbid, other people are using cell phones.

    Works well but sound quality is poor

    This is a decent bluetooth headset. It works in all situations and the battery life is actually very, very good. Pairing with my iphone 5 or my laptop is instant. The indicators on the headset are useful to tell if it's connected or if the battery is getting down there. The on/off switch is one of the best features, it saves a lot of battery. Past headsets have only gone into standby, wasting battery and causing frustration when it was dead. My main issues with this headset are the fit and the sound quality. The frame of my glasses is quite small, yet this headset can't sit right up against my ear. The additional soft ear piece with the loop on it is quite uncomfortable after 20 or so minutes. The sound quality in my ear is very low (this is not a result of the fit issue). No one has said anything bad about the quality of my voice on their end but I have certainly noticed the low-quality sound in my ear. It sounds much like the headset is turned up too high causing distortion, but this is not the case. It happens at all volume levels - even the lowest. Overall, a good headset for the price. If you need to save a few bucks but need a bluetooth headset, this will work out just fine.

    I never had a bluetooth headset before.

    I never had a bluetooth headset before. I always wanted one, but only a few years ago they started at $50 for a half decent one, and the better ones were over $100+. So I passed. Recently while walking thru my BestBuy store, I noticed the headsets they were selling. This time, they started at $30 and there were a few between that and about $100. I was told there were more online, even ones for $300. Since that was out of my price range, I chose the lower price range in-store item, the Jabra Classic for only $29.95. I believe they sell it now under a different name, as the box doesn't call it Classic, but it's the same unit. Well, it's everything they say and more. Crystal clear sound to and from the main phone, great range, on-board controls, comfortable fitting, a nice tight fitting, compact, and it operated beautifully while outside with the wind blowing pretty hard. For this price, you can't go wrong. I'm sure the more expensive ones have features that enhance the operation of the bluetooth, but for me, an average home user, it has performed perfectly since day one. And it does last very long on a charge (days), and the unit actually tells you when the battery is low and needs charging. I'm a happy customer.

    Two for two

    This is the second Jabra Classic headset I have owned. My first one lasted a little over four years before it started having problems. (Battery life and BT connection) So there was no hesitation in replacing it with another one. Outside of the version number they are pretty much identical. Setup on my S8 is fast and painless. Less than two minutes, and part of that was deleting the old one first. Once that was done it is ready to go. No apps to configure or anything so it couldn't be simpler. I love the performance. Both media and call audio are very clear. I wouldn't be inclined to use it in place of headphones, but for a short video or such it is just fine. Battery life is pretty good, there is no indicator for battery level that I know of, but I charge mine every other day depending on usage. I'd say I use it for 30 minutes to an hour most days. Sometimes a bit more maybe. I have no problem recommending this BT headset. You really can't ask for more out of a basic headset. Great hands free solution.

    Easy to use, hard to fit

    I bought this headset because it was the least expensive Bluetooth headset available ($30). I was able to connect it to my Android phone easily. I did not have a Bluetooth prior to this, so the set up and ease of use was pleasantly surprising to me. You can hit the button on the side and say redial or call a certain number. However I was not able to call by name because it would not recognize the name so I had to say the number aloud or select the number on my phone as you would do normally. I enjoyed the long battery life because I would talk and then use it to listen to music for 3-5 hours and then by the end of the day I could talk some more and then the headset would notify me of low battery. The set does come with 2 removable ear pieces so that you can replace with different sizes. My one and biggest complaint that led me to return the headset is the ear piece is too large. More often than not I would have to switch the headset to the other ear or take it off completely. My ears would feel stretched and sore. It was very unpleasant. I do have history of earpieces being too big so this wasn't a surprise. So to those that have smaller ears this set may be painful for you as well. Otherwise, the function, sound, battery life , and ease of use were good for the price.

    I purchased this item for several reasons. 1. I am always misplacing my BlueTooth Devices. 2. I wanted a device that was easy to learn fast and have good options. The options are as follows; connects easily, has a volume control that advises you if you try to listen to the device too loud; has an on and off switch (usually helpful, heh), Tells you if it is connected by pressing the main button once; hold the main button for a few seconds and you can talk directly to your device (ie. call Mom, text John@work. Sleek design and very small, most people will be looking right at me and thing I am talking to myself, (another heh deserves to be here). Hope this helps you pick your next device. Remember simple but functions very well.
