Jabra BT160 Bluetooth Headset review: Jabra BT160 Bluetooth Headset

 

Most Bluetooth headsets look the same, so when we see one that's eye-catching and attractive, we tend to take notice. Jabra got our attention last year with the JX10's sleek, silver design, and the company has done it again with one of its more recent...

The Jabra BT160 comes with 33 different design faceplates, plus you have the option of designing your own. It has a flexible ear hook, a comfortable fit, easy-to-press buttons, and solid audio quality.

It takes a while to get the right fit with the Jabra BT160, and it doesn't sound great in noisy environments.

Besides offering decent audio quality and a comfortable fit, the Jabra BT160's multiple design faceplates set it apart from most other Bluetooth headsets.

Review: Jabra BT160

 

TreoCentral's Annie Latham reviews the Jabra BT160 bluetooth headset

Comfortable, Pairs easily and is easy-to-use, Faceplate customization options are endless

Answer/End button feels cheap, Works only about 10 feet away from the Treo (not 10 meters/33 feet as claimed), No carrying case or decent place to store faceplates

In my opinion the BT160 is what it is… a unique, very fun and fashionable way to move up to a Bluetooth headset without looking like a Borg. If the 33 included faceplates don't do it for you, go wild and make your own. The customization possibilities...

The fashion innovation is a gimmick, but the rest of you will appreciate a competitively priced and easy to use unit that performs fairly well.

Price, Ease of use, Features List

Design with paper inserts a little tacky, Volume could be improved in heavy noise environments

Jabra BT160

 

The Jabra BT-160 is a great no-fuss Bluetoothheadset. Sure, it may not have all bells and whistles of more expensive models, but it ships with 33 replaceable covers and works well.

Swappable covers ; Inexpensive

A little uncomfortable for long converstaions

The device will work with any Bluetooth-compatible phone, and the freedom to change its appearance helps make the Jabra BT160 an excellent earpiece for those looking to make the occasional phone call.

Not too shabby

 

Pairing is extremely easy with my Motorola e815.

Picks up some background noise.

Very Reliable Headset

 

This headset works really good. Clear, with no snap, crackle or pop. The device rarely loses connection with the phone. Holds a charge for at least a full day for me. No complaints with this device. Has only 4 buttons. One to power it on and off,...

Good Value, Compact, Lightweight

Bulky
