Jabra BT160 Bluetooth Headset

 

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

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

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.

Whoever you're talking to hears EVERYTHING, LOUDLY!

 

I have had a difficult time enjoying this headset. The ear piece is pretty flexible, meaning you can put it on either ear pretty easily. However, it doesn't always stay, and is a bit bulky. More importantly is the tendency for the headset to lose...

It easily fits on either ear, and has fun designs to switch out depending on your mood or style. Also, it's inexpensive (or cheap)

Certainly cuteness is not the most important thing in a Bluetooth. Sound quality is horrendous to the other person; it picks up all background noise. It doesn't stay on the ear, and sometimes disconnects from the phone randomly, even while talking

"bad design!"

 

Had to send for factory replacement 3 times - and so far have a grand total of about 15 hours of all the BT-160 (from new to the last one sent by the "factory"! Now - with 5 hours on the latest replacement - back it goes. Must have a bad design flaw.

when it works - the sounds level is VERY low :-)

problem is getting it to work at all!
