Unboxing the Jabra BT2080

The Jabra BT2080 is a bluetooth wireless headset that’s probably inspired by 1990’s futuristic science fiction shows. You basically connect it to your phone via bluetooth, slip it in your ear, and just click on it if you want to answer an incoming call. It just looks weird sometimes because people might think you’re talking to yourself. However I believe it’s only a matter of time before this becomes mainstream and not just techie. For one bluetooth wireless headsets are the “in-thing” for popular shows like Fringe (hehe). That and almost all of the mobile phones coming out aren’t made for long calls. The flat touchscreen surface isn’t just optimal when pressed against human ears.

Here are some photos of the unboxing. Apologies for the weird pictures since we just took it while eating late night ice cream.

Came in really nice packaging. It’s a bit hard to open though and actually take out the headset.

There are different controls on the headset including volume controls, power button, call end/answer, and indicators for bluetooth connection and battery life.

Comes with a charger, bunch of manuals, and extra ear frame.

After using it for a couple of days I just have two complaints. First, it’s a bit annoying that it doesn’t play music. Secondly, it becomes noisy sometimes when on a call. The higher end models have noise cancellation though so maybe I should have gone for those. In terms of pros though I like that the Jabra BT2080 is very light and comfortable to wear. It’s not invasive at all and you can get used to it in a couple of minutes. It’s also easy to operate and connect. You just have to turn it on, connect your phone to it, and viola!

Sells for Php1,990. Bought it from iStudio Shangrila but a lot of other Apple resellers also carry Jabra.
