    i dont want things sending sonic waves into the smallest bones in my body.
    i think i want the jabra 800. no problems waiting for january.

    it better be like $20 though. seriously thought it better be like $150-$200
    i dont see the point of a bluetooth headset if you can answer/end calls from it AND see whos calling. this lets you effectively use your headset as the phone when you need to use your 650 as just a phone on long drives etc.

    Jabra has announced the BT800, a Bluetooth-enabled earpiece with a 21x64 pixel LCD display, 5 ringtones, a vibrating mode, noise cancellation, 6 hours of talktime, charging via both USB (yes!) and AC power, and that weighs in at just three-fourths of an ounce. We would think those specs are enough, but Jabra goes all out and squeezes in two more buttons (to accept or deny the call) and a jog dial. We’re counting down the days to January 2005, which is the rumored date being thrown around

    The Jabra representative at CTIA Wireless in SF told me that the MSRP for the BT800 would be $119.99
    There's no place like 127.0.0.1

    I've read about some of the wireless headsets, and it seems like these headsets can give good sound to the wearer. But I was wondering about the microphone, can the person that you're talking to hear you OK??? I have experienced wired headsets where I had to hold the microphone near my mouth so my wife would stop telling me to speak up! Wireless models, on the other hand, seem to have the microphone very close to the ear. Does the mic still work OK??? Thanks for your input thus far.

    Can you use a BT headset that uses the 1.2 protocol on the Treo 650? And has anyone heard any feedback on the Motorola 805 (uses a AAA battery to give about 20 hours of talk time and 20 days of standby)? But that Jabra 800 looks uber cool!

    I am going to look into the HBH-300 by SOny Ericsson. It has a boom microphone and is supposed to have excellent outgoing sound qualilty

    All of those look cool, but I've been using the Freespeak since I had my 300. My biggest complaint was battery life. With the Moto 810 my problems will be solved. I love the flip open boom (hope it answers the call when I do that, but if not the "phone" button on the headset will), it comes with a cool case that's protective for the headset, but pliable enough for me to leave on when I sit down in the car (without the headset in it of course), AND it uses the same charger as Moto's phones do! This will allow me to buy one of the iGo chargers (Autopower15 is the model, $29.99) at Radioshack, and just get two iTips, one for the Treo, one for the Moto. And if someone were enough of a power user to need to charge both at the same time they could get the Everywherepower15, $59.99, which will charge both simultaneously in the house OR the car. That alone seals the deal for me!
    Go here if you're tired of being .
    It'll be fun.

    Everyone who wants to listen to music over their Bluetooth headset, FORGET IT. Bluetooth will not support the bandwidth. The only way will be with the a2dp profile, which the Treo 650 doesn't support. Infact the palm guys didnt even know what the hell I was talking about. The best you will get will be talk radio.

    I have tried a few different Headsets with my XDA II and ATM I use a Motorola HS810 headset so far it is my favourite headset, I like the ability to turn it on/off simply by flicking the microphone boom open/closed. When closed it is real small and fits well in the pocket. When open it makes the mic closer to your mouth so better sound for people your talking to... Also seems to connect to the phone after being off, very quickly.... It has also been far more reliable than the others I have bought (then sold) or borrowed off friends to try out... These include ericsson HBH-35, Logitech Mobile Bluetooth Headset, Bluebird BTH-70, Nokia HDW-2 and Jabra 250.

    What about Jabra's new BT 110, uses a AAA battery and you get 15 hours of talktime?

    This is a very good point. I think people will have to decide whether the hands free phone or the tethered stereo headset is more important to them. It will be a lifestyle choice.

    It would be pretty funny to see someone switching back and forth throughout a day.

    How did you like the BT250 compared to the HS810? I initially chose the HS810 as well, but found out that it just doesn't work well with my prominent ears. It doesn't fit snugly, and it felt like some foreign object was dangling off my ear, about to fall off. I loved the size of the HS810 and loved the design of the on/off switch by flipping the boom. But it was just too uncomfortable to me. I am now holding out for the upcoming Jabra BT500 (January).

    The Jabra BT800, scheduled for release around the first of the New Year, works for me. Caller ID, ringtones, vibrate and the ability to dial directly from the headset sold me.

    I currently use the SE HBH-65 and it has been great. My only complaint is battery life but from what I have read, it is pretty much in line with others.

    This one from USA Wireless caught my attention:
