I recently purchased the Sanyo SCP-5300 (also a must have gadget) and thought what would go better with it then a wireless headset? Especially since using a cell phone while driving, where I live...is illegal. Jabra makes 2 versions of the BT200 FreeSpeak a wireless headset for cell phones, one version for phones with Bluetooth capability and one version for non-Bluetooth phones.

I've had the version for non-Bluetooth phones for several days now and must say, I'm quite impressed. The audio on my end is great, with only a very faint backround hiss. Those I'm speaking to didn't know I was on a headset until I told them. Today, while driving, after telling the caller what I was using, they asked me to whisper as low as I could to see if they could make it out, they got every word. Talk time is 3 hours on a full charge. In the non-Bluetooth version the charger doubles as a transmitter when plugged into the cell phone. It comes with a belt clip which holds the charger/transmitter and the headset slides into it, when not in use.
With the charger/transmitter plugged into your cell phone while on ur belt, your cell phone set to auto-answer and the headset on your ear, all you have to do to answer an incoming call is lightly press a button on the headset behind your ear...24th century stuff here...lol Makes anyone using a corded headset on their cell phone seem...well... archaic by comparison. The unit allows you to go 30 feet away from the cell phone, so in your house you can have complete and utter freedom during a call, while ur cell phone stays connected to it's charger.
The unit is very comfortable to wear, though you may forget your wearing it. Calls can be answered and ended from the headset with phones that allow it to, the Sanyo SCP-5300 has a "turbo" mode for headsets, for just this purpose. The headset also has eight different volume control settings, and will get nice and loud for any noisy locations you encounter. Cool looking blue LED lights mark both the headset and the charger, indicating various modes each is in. The headset itself looks like something straight out of Star Trek.
Go to www.Jabra.com to check it out.
Putting the headset in place around your ear takes some getting used to but after a while it can be done easily with one hand. The patent applied for gel caps which extend into the ear canal but do not block it, allow you to be able to hear completely what's going on around you while effortlessly hearing who your speaking to.
The price is a little high but this is cutting edge technology and a new product to boot. The non-Bluetooth unit is $179.00 The Bluetooth unit is $100.00 If you have a non-Bluetooth cell phone now and purchase the unit for it, then decide later to upgrade to a bluetooth phone you will not have to buy a new headset just simply let the two "communicate" to get them both operating on the same frequency. One more thing, the company claims the output of this device is less then 1% of the typical cell phone antenna, for those worried about any health risks your cell phone might be imposing. Well, that's my review, hope you enjoyed it : )
