Jabra BT500

 

The slim Jabra BT500 fits comfortably, but its performance and styling aren't up to the company's usual standards.

The Jabra BT500 is compact and has a comfortable fit

The downside of the Jabra BT500 is its unattractive form factor and stiff volume buttons

Jabra BT500 Bluetooth headset

 

Like the BT250, the Jabra BT500 has a crescent shape that fits behind either ear. Yet despite its trim profile, we didn't love the BT500's overall look. The Razr is sexy, but the BT500 is far from it. The gray coloring is too utilitarian, and the sharp...

Once connected to your cell phone, you can use the BT500 to do all the standard headset actions—answering calls, making voice-activated calls, and rejecting or muting calls. One button near the end of the mic boom handles all of these functions easily,...

Comfortable, stable fit. Easy Bluetooth pairing. Very accessible volume buttons

Design screams "I'm wearing a Bluetooth headset

If comfort is a priority or you plan on wearing your Bluetooth headset for long periods of time or while moving around a lot, the Jabra BT500 is a solid choice.

Jabra BT500 Review

 

Jabra BT500 is a comparatively big headset, but it's designed so that it is hidden behind your ear and what is seen of it is definitely not huge. Most headsets cover the ear itself and their boom mikes points to the mouth, which creates the illusion of...

Jabra BT500 Bluetooth Headset Review and Prices

 

The Jabra BT500 Bluetooth Headset provides a comfortable fit with reasonable access to features. Probably the best things about this model are its thin design (0.6 inches) and its snug fit. The headset is very lightweight, and ear gels of various sizes...

Though no one can deny that the Jabra BT500 is big, after testing this interesting looking headset we came out quite pleased with the overall package. Read the full review here.

Very comfortable, great inbound audio, easy to use

Very little noise reduction, large size

Jabra BT 500v Bluetooth headset review

 

The makers behind the Jabra headsets think it has created the next must have feature for the Bluetooth headset, but do you really want a headset that vibrates in your ear? We get calling to find out. The Jabra BT 500v is a rather large headset that is...

Comfortable to wear, light, good clear reception, vibrates, stays on your ear

A tad on the large side, not much style to it

Although not as sleek as the company's Jabra JX10 Bluetooth headset the BT 500v is top notch for those who just want something that works

The problem with writing about Bluetooth headsets is that they are very much dependent on your individual tastes as to just what exactly constitutes '...

Comfortable, long battery life, lightweight

Tricky controls, limited range

The Jabra BT500 offers extended phone functionality for mobile users but the fiddly controls and odd looking design may turn some people off

The slim Jabra BT500 fits comfortably, but its performance and styling aren't up to the company's usual standards.

Compact ; Comfortable fit

Unattractive form factor ; Stiff volume buttons

We tested the Jabra BT500 with the Sony Ericsson W600i and were able to pair the two devices quickly. Reception and clarity were mostly good, but they diminished noticeably when we used the headset outdoors. Likewise, volume was fine, as long as we...
