[ background music ] >> I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor for CNET.com. And this is the Jabra [assumed spelling] BT8040 bluetooth headset. It is the latest moto bluetooth headset from Jabra, and has sort of a very cool looking streamlined design. It's pretty small and compact as well. On the front you get a, sort of a small multi function button. On top you do get the volume controls. They're kind of hard to see, but there are two raised textural nubs on top. On the back instead of a optional ear hook, it has the comfort ear gel tip. It has a little curved ear loop so that it fits right snugly in the ear. The BT8040 comes with three different sizes of the ear bud covers. Though the BT8040 may be a small bluetooth headset, it really shines when it comes to features. It has active noise reduction. It has something called acoustic shock protection. It also has A2DP music streaming, so you can use this headset for listening to music, as well as just getting calls, as well as your regular cell phone calls. And the great thing about the BT8040 is that you can pair to multiple devices as the same time. And if you pair this to your music player as well as your cell phone, you can just toggle in between with a touch of the button right here. Overall we really liked the Jabra BT8040. It has a stylish compact shape, it has really great features, and it's also really surprisingly affordable at only seventy nine dollars and ninety nine cents. This is definitely a good buy as far as bluetooth headsets go. My name is Nicole Lee, and this has been the Jabra BT8040 bluetooth headset. [ music ]
