Very Pleased With This Unit
Due to the new regulations going into effect on January 3rd of 2012 where commercial drivers are required to go hands free on their cellphones and no texting allowed, I decided to try a more comfortable bluetooth unit. I have been using a Motorola HX-1 bone conduction model for a year or so, and found that it would get annoying after about five hours and I'd have to take it out. That's not really an option now, to use the phone I have to be hands free for the whole day. This new version of the B250 adds A2DP, which I wanted, so I could hear when I received a text or email, not that I could whip out the phone and text back, but so that at the next stop I didn't have to whip out the phone to check and see if I got a message, I would already know if there was a new message or not from the phone sending me an alert. As for the headset, it just works and doesn't fall off my head when I move. It has more than enough volume so that I can hear the caller very clearly and everyone I've talked to with the headset doesn't even realize I'm in the truck. One touch voice dialing works perfectly. The headset is a little large and won't win any awards for style, it makes you look a little geeky, but it works. The only annoyance I had with this unit was the blue flashing connect light when the headset was on, but I found you could disable it by tapping the volume up/down buttons at the same time. Then you just have to remember it is on when you are done for the day and shut it off. I tried it over the weekend on a full charge, basically on for two twelve hour days with about five hours of talk time and never ran out of battery. I would recommend this headset to anyone would needs to go hands free and doesn't want the wet ear from the standard bluetooth headsets. This unit was paired to an HTC EVO 4G by sprint and a Motorola V950 and both worked perfectly.
