Jabra BT350 Bluetooth headset

It's been a few months since we've reviewed a Jabra Bluetooth headset, so we were eager to put the Jabra BT350 through its paces. For the most part, we've been pleased with Jabra's products, particularly the caller ID Jabra BT800 and the Jabra FreeSpeak BT250 , which earned our Editors' Choice award. Naturally, we expected a lot from the BT350, and it didn't let us down. Despite a couple of minor quibbles with the Jabra BT250's fit and performance, the feature-packed BT350, which even comes with a vibrate mode, is a solid choice for a Bluetooth headset, especially since it's fairly priced at $79.

The Jabra BT350 first caught our eye earlier this year at the annual Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association show in New Orleans. Although hardly Jabra's flashiest model, the BT350's slender oval form factor and blue and silver color scheme make for a stylish yet understated design. The small size (2.48 by 1.02 by 0.47 inches), light weight (0.6 ounces), and lack of a boom mic also mean that the headset won't look too conspicuous on your head.

The Jabra BT350's fit is quite comfortable, and it's easy to slip the headset on and off. The highly flexible ear loop can be shaped to fit almost any size ear and is adjustable for either ear. The BT350 fit securely in our tests but only after we fiddled with it for a couple minutes; because the earpiece rests on the ear rather than protruding into it, we had to move it around to get the placement right. Once we did, the headset hardly jiggled when we shook our head. Just make sure you take the time for a correct fit.
