Jabra BT3030 Stereo Bluetooth Headset Overview

Jabra never ceases to amaze with its experiments in the field of wireless headsets, actively developing existing segments and even offering consumers a new look (for example, the expensive JX-series) on familiar things. In the field of musical devices, there is also a lot of interesting things - a headset for players, headphones that turn into speakers, and now there is also a token that is not one. I present to you one of the best headsets on the market, Jabra BT3030, small and very good.

Design, construction

In this article, I already wrote about the design of the BT3030, I won't repeat it, the appearance repeats the soldier's dog tags, the same applies to the chain of balls. The calculation in the company was made for young users, I will say this, up to twenty-five years old, although, in my opinion, it can be used by men and women of any age and religion, as long as you like it. The thing is cool, and that's what it's about, they're the kind that you either like or you don't. Stainless metal is used in the design, the assembly is monolithic, the frame of the “token” is made of either velvety plastic or hard rubber, the chain and holder are metal. On the top of the headset there is a microphone hole, on the right side there is a headphone jack, it is standard - 3.5 mm. Small grooves on the ends are designed to attach the clip from the kit, with it you can easily attach the headset to a shirt, pocket, and so on, it's convenient.

The headphones in the kit have a verified cable length, in appearance and design they resemble the Sony MDR EX-71SL, but the latter are better in terms of playback quality - the model from Jabra is deaf, although it will satisfy the undemanding user. Although the presence of a conventional connector makes it possible to use your favorite "ears", so there is no problem with this.

As you understand, you need to wear the headset on a chain, but you can also disconnect it by “breaking” the ball from the mount (re-assembling the structure is not a problem). Then either a complete clip will help you, or just put it in your shirt pocket.

The headset has basic waterproofness, the case can withstand the "onslaught" of a light rain. However, this does not mean that right after the purchase you can get into the shower - you can, but only if you have a desire to have fun in the service center.

Management

All controls are grouped on the front panel, as you can see, the designations are more than clear, moreover, there is no shortage of keys. At the very top is Play / Pause, below - Rew / FF, volume keys, answer and end calls (it is also responsible for pairing with other devices and turns on the headset). The company logo etched on the plate is also a light indicator, by the way, when the pairing mode is active, the entire outline of the keys is highlighted, it looks beautiful, not clumsy, the headset, when connected, winks only with the indicator. And then after a minute of operation, the flickering stops, the device switches to economy mode.

I really liked the design of the keys, they are outlined with rubber strips, which allows you to find the buttons under the clothes by touch (the main thing is to learn the location, it's easy to do). Although the keys are made in the RAZR style, they have a clear stroke, a click when pressed, in general, the control is excellent. I will say more - perfect for a headset of this size.

Battery, operating time

Declared standby time is 230 hours, talk time is 8 hours, and music playback is 7 hours. I tested the device in the traditional way by connecting the BT3030 to the SE W960i smartphone and starting playback. By the way, it was at night, but the test was interrupted by the call of a friend with whom we talked for almost an hour, then the playback was continued. As a result, I can safely report that the declared figures are extremely close to reality, when used in mixed mode (two hours of listening to music, an hour of talking, turning off at night), the device can work for a little more than two days. Not a bad result, but not ideal, the working time could be longer.

Using a standard miniUSB connector, it will take about two hours when charging from the mains, and almost four hours from a computer USB port.

Phone connection, sound quality

The headset was tested with two smartphones, Sony Ericsson W960i and Samsung i550. When you turn it on for the first time, you immediately enter the pairing mode, you just need to detect it and enter the password (0000). Auto-connect after pairing worked correctly in both the first and second cases, as well as pausing during an incoming call and continuing playback after the call ended. The company's website states that it is possible to work in multipoint mode with two phones at once, strange, but I did not find any mention of this in the instructions, and in fact, when connecting a second, already paired smartphone, it did not end well. Most likely, this is a mistake, and it is possible to work with only one device at a time. By the way, it also says about an additional chain in the kit, which I never saw.

I liked the playback quality with standard headphones better with the i550, however, as I already said, the basses are a little muffled here, and the overall impression of the headphones is exactly as if a bear stepped on them. By connecting headphones from the HPM-82 headset, we managed to achieve much better results, now I like the sound of the SE W960i more, it is even somewhat better than when using the Sony Ericsson DS-220 headset - a little louder, more bass, without a barely audible rustle. Here it is, the power of profile 2.0 with EDR in all its glory, somehow you even forget that you are not listening to music via cable. Especially for people who are very aesthetic, I’ll note that you can buy a good player, amplifier, high-quality headphones, spend a couple of thousand dollars on all this stuff ... It’s possible, but is it necessary? Answer this question for yourself, but I think that a good everyday bundle came out of the same W960i and BT3030.

The voice quality is good, you can easily communicate without bringing the headset to your mouth, although your hands instinctively reached out to lift it, there is a noise reduction system, the microphone is sensitive. The voice of the interlocutor is pleasant, the frequencies are not cut off. All phone functions work on five, this is last number dialing and voice dialing, which worked better on the i550, with the w960 two voice tags out of five tested were recognized. The pluses include the ability to turn off the microphone, switching between lines works quite well. In the case of the i550, a ringtone was transmitted (in mp3 format), for the W960i this is irrelevant, the range of effective work with smartphones is about five meters.

Conclusions

The headset has no minuses, it's good for everyone, except that the operating time could be longer. Moreover, this is the first truly fashionable musical solution of this type; no matter how hard you try, you can't think of a competitor – everything here is painfully balanced. Excellent ergonomics, universal connectors, inconspicuous dimensions and weight, high-quality reproduction and voice quality ... The price of more than a hundred dollars is quite justified, the BT3030 has already appeared in stores, and I can safely recommend the little thing for purchase. This is an adequate replacement for the best solutions on the market (DS-970, DS-200, headsets from Sony).
