CNET First Look
Jabra BT8030 Bluetooth headphones/speakerThe Jabra BT8030 is great for those who want a Bluetooth speaker and headphones all in one device, but beware of certain design pitfalls.
[ background music ] >> I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor for CNET.com. And this is the Dabra [assumed spelling] DT8030 stereo bluetooth headset. And it's also a portable speaker. At first glance it does look like a pretty bulky looking stereo headset, and it is actually. There's a very thick padded foam around the top of the head here. You can just pull on the sides here to adjust the length. On top here there are the volume controls. There's also a pairing button, and the call button. On the other side you do get the music controls. When you were it as a headset, it's a little bit inconvenient, because the buttons are all placed on the back of your head. The best thing about this headset is that it does transform into a portable speaker. So there are two little buttons on the top here that when you press will actually sort of unhinge the top here, and it actually changes into a portable speaker. And we were actually amazed by the sound quality. So overall the fit was really comfortable, we just weren't sure about the size of it's so bulky. The controls were inconveniently located as well. My name is Nicole Lee. This has been the Jabra BT8030. ^M00:01:07 [ music ]
