The Good The Jabra BT3010 comes with 33 interchangeable cover designs, is easy to use, and fits well in the ear. It also has good call quality and is extremely affordable.

The Bad The Jabra BT3010 has tiny controls and a rather stiff ear hook.

The Bottom Line The Jabra BT3010 is a playful Bluetooth headset with plenty of cover design options at an affordable price, if you can look past its flaws.

When the Jabra BT160 came out last year, we praised it for being one of the first Bluetooth headsets to come with interchangeable cover designs. It doesn't add anything to its features or performance of course, but it's a nice touch for those who are keen on personalizing their gadgets. Jabra has released its successor, dubbed the BT3010. The BT3010 has pretty much the same features and sound quality as the BT160, but it has a slightly different design, with as many as 33 different design covers included in the package. You can even design your own cover by visiting Jabra.com. However, we were not pleased with the tiny controls. If you don't mind these slight drawbacks, the Jabra BT3010 is a fun little Bluetooth headset with passable sound quality available for about $29.99.

Aside from the interchangeable cover designs, the BT3010 looks like a normal Bluetooth headset. Measuring 2.0 inches long by 0.9 inch wide by 0.4 inch thick, the BT3010 has a very simple all-black plastic casing. The front cover is transparent, which you can take off to replace the design faceplates. At the very top of the design cover are three buttons--the multifunction button in the middle and two volume buttons on either side. We thought all three buttons were a little too small for our liking, even though they are all sufficiently raised above the surface of the headset. The two volume buttons are especially tiny. The multifunction button also houses the LED indicator light.
