OK, Here is the full version. I won't be doing any more quick reviews, too many H & SH's.

I was very impressed with this product, and have had no trouble with it at all. It can be worn on either ear, and does not rub or pinch, although peoples ears are all different so someone will complain.

It is so easy to use, very good, and most important, legal too. I must also say it makes driving easier than with the old wired hands free kit.

The earpiece has controls for volume, which is a little hard to operate, but you can use the controls on the phone instead. The sound quality is very good.

These can now be found at fifteen Pounds or even less. The reason for this is because the new version is out, with more functions like a vibrate mode. I have to admit I would find this a little frightening, the thought of something vibrating inside my ear would not improve my driving.

I have to say that this little OTE (over the ear) device is brilliant, ,the recommended retail price is actually just under £30 but you will find it a lot cheaper. Mine was a gift so that made it an even bigger bargain. I also received a car charger, this works on 12 and 24 volts. Also included in the package, was the mains charger.

The little device holds it's charge all day long, even when it gets a lot of use. Apparently it is supposed to give up to eight hours continual use, not that you would be on the phone that long, and it can be charged between calls anyway.

The actual earpiece is very comfortable indeed, and you do forget you have it on. there is also a holder, which has a clip fitted so you can attach it to your shirt etc. You insert the earpiece into the holder to charge it, then whichever charger lead you are using then goes into the holder.

I find that when using this device, the mobile phone itself uses more power than normal, this is because it has to be connected by bluetooth to the Jabra all the time.

I have never yet lost the signal, in fact I have had no trouble with this brilliant little gadget at all .

I confess I had to resort to going to my local Orange shop, and admitting I was an absolute technophobe, I asked them to "configure" my Jabra for me, which they immediately did without any hassle. something I could have done myself of course, given a year or two!

Jabra do have a website, take a look:-
