Jabra BT-320s Stereo Bluetooth Headset Overview

Six months ago, wireless stereo headsets were extremely rare, the consumer literally had nothing to choose from. On the other hand, there were not so many phones with A2DP support either, Samsung was the main apologist for transferring music over the air, and to this day the range of such devices from this company is the largest of all major manufacturers. Today we will talk about another stereo headset, this is the Jabra BT 320s. The product is similar in design to the already reviewed BT-325s, but, in fact, is a simpler device, without any "blowing".

Design and construction

The design of the device is interesting, although not particularly expressive. But there is something in it. This “something”, most likely, lies in deliberate sportiness, maybe even some kind of aggressiveness. Judge for yourself, lacquered black plastic is combined here with rubber pads that cover the keys, the only "light in the window" is a gray multi-function key with a pleasant backlight. When the headset is on, it is green, during charging it is red, during the pairing process it is blue. The colors are pleasant, somewhat reminiscent of the pulsating backlight in Motorola E398, SonyEricsson W 850i. All connectors are also covered - the cover covers the charging connector, it easily opens and returns to its place (however, it seemed flimsy to me), the headphone jack is bordered with a rubber washer, there is also a rubber plug on the bottom end of the headset. Apparently, there is emptiness underneath.

You can't find fault with the coating, apparently, this is unpainted plastic, it is unlikely that you will get scratches during operation; the same goes for the assembly, it's just good.

An extremely joyful fact is the ability to connect any headphones to the Jabra BT320s, you are not limited in your capabilities. We will talk about the bundled headphones below.

Wearing style

For convenient fixation to clothing, the headset is equipped with a metal clip, it can be easily bent, the fastening is secure. If you do not like to wear the device like this, you can attach the strap from the kit, there is a special groove for this. In general, everything is convenient and logical, there are no problems. When the headset hangs around the neck, it is better to use headphones for remote control, that is, with a shortened wire.

Management

Everything is in its place: multifunctional key (answer/hang up call, turn on/off the device), Play/Stop/Pause button, track rewind keys, volume control. All buttons are pressed perfectly, unlike the same Nokia BH-500. After all, both the BT-320s and the 500 are extremely similar in their sportiness, but in terms of ergonomics, the latter is worse than the product from Jabra. To enter pairing mode, you need to press and hold the multifunction key, it is extremely simple.

Food

The headset is equipped with a built-in lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of about 200 mAh. According to the manufacturer, the headset can work 6 hours in talk mode, 160 hours in standby mode. The most exciting factor is the time of work in the music playback mode. After a full charge, the headset paired with the Nokia N91 played music for about four hours without interruption. Not so much, at first glance, but it’s quite enough for use in the city (a purely subjective opinion, someone only gets to work a couple of hours). It is quite possible that the battery is still “swinging”, a completely new device fell into my hands.

The headset uses a microUSB connector, or rather, one of its many variations. Chargers from most Jabra mono headsets will not work.

Headset charging time is approximately 2 hours.

Phone connection, sound quality

Alas and ah, but after such a good design, convenient controls in this section, we are in for a complete disappointment. So, to begin with, pairing with Nokia N91 8 Gb was performed, however, it was possible to complete it only the second time. Naturally, the most interesting parameter is the quality of sound reproduction. Firstly, a strong background noise was heard during playback, and secondly, there is clearly not enough volume. When replacing the headphones with Jabra C820s, the situation did not improve, even this audio sophistication could not affect the quality of the headset. After that, the headset was paired with the Samsung D600, the volume increased, but the background noise did not disappear anywhere, and it interferes a lot, believe me. The keys worked on both devices with a tolerable delay, we can say that everything is fine with the controls.

Well, and the final part - testing with Nokia N91 as a regular mono headset. Here, too, not everything is smooth, the pairing was unstable, I personally have not seen this for a long time. That is, it seems that the headset is connected, but the icon - headphones on the screen - does not appear. Only turning the device (headset) on and off helps to cure this trouble. The dialing of the last number, which, in theory, is, I personally did not manage to carry out, with the help of voice dialing I did not manage to dial a single number, it does not work correctly. The interlocutors rated the quality of speech transmission as a three with a minus, I have the same opinion. Auto-connection to previously paired devices works every other time.

With a laptop (Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR on my side, profile 1.2 on the 320s side), I managed to connect the headset, but I still couldn’t listen to music with it, despite all the tricks.

A defective sample or a raw, poorly tested product? It's hard to say, when buying, I highly advise you to pair with your device and only after that make a decision.

Conclusions

Actually, what conclusions can there be? Good design, build quality, control and a completely raw device in everything related to music and voice transmission. I would not recommend buying Jabra BT 320s, look better at 620s of the same brand or products from other manufacturers. The retail price of 320s will be about 80 dollars, due to the problems described (if this is not the problem of a particular sample), it is very expensive. It’s probably stupid to talk about competitors, Nokia BH-500 may have worse ergonomics, but with /a> copes with the main tasks many times better than BT320s. Honestly, I did not expect this from Jabra.
