Its distinctive cutting-edge design and contemporary stainless steel finish makes it stand out from the rest of the crowd.

Unique Style:
The Jabra JX10 Cara weighs less than 14 grams and measures less than four centimetres, placing it among the smallest headsets available. Its small size and distinctive minimalist design make it one of the most elegant, discreet and stylish Bluetooth headsets for those who appreciate exquisite design.

Jacob Jenson Design:
Jacob Jensen Design is among the most recognised design studios in the world and whose portfolio includes designs for Bang & Olufsen audio products and Gaggenau appliances. This same expertise has been used by Jabra to create a stunning design for the JX10 Cara

Audio Quality:
The Jabra JX10 headset features state-of-the art voice reception and clarity. It adjusts automatically to the ambient noise level through intuitive volume control. This feature is based on DSP (Digital Signal Processing), which also ensures a significant reduction in background noise.

Premium Accessories:

The Jabra JX10 comes in a limited edition stainless steel colour and is accompanied by a desktop charger fully designed to harmonise with the shape of the headset. In addition, the Jabra JX10 Cara has its own carrying case for safe keeping when not in use.

After all is said and done, it's still only a Bluetooth earpiece. And £17.99 stills seems expensive for one IMO.
#3
This is a very good headset. There are alot of fakes around, hence some conflicting user reviews, but if these are genuine then it is a great price for a stylish headset. Sure you can get cheaper ones, but this was/is a flagship model at Jabra.
#4
There are lots of bluetooth headsets around this price and cheaper, like this one:

http://www.blueunplugged.com/p.aspx?p=122141

trouble is most of them are terrible. Only way I'm voting this hot is if someone can convince me this is a good bluetooth headset.
#5
I use this headset for my ps3 it last for ages. sound quality it good for voice and microphone is crystal clear I paid £25 for mine a year ago.
#6
If this is the new JX10 which im sure it probably is, then dont forget this works with 2 mobiles simultaneously!!!
well worth the money imo, own one myself.
#7
So, could I pair this with my phone and my netbook then and it would remember both pairings? Or more, maybe? The more, the merrier...
#8
I had one of these (a genuine one) and the earhook kept coming off. Sent it back.
#9
I bought one of these for about £70-80 when it first came out. The impressively small size was good at the time (this was a good couple of years ago) and it cam with a natty charger dock and very plush packaging.

Sound quality was pretty average, battery life iffy and bluetooth range was the worst I've ever seen (and I've had far too many headsets)

Overall not really a great deal, unless you need one this small I'd buy a quality nokia, a second hand jawbone or something similar.

My headset lasted about 9 months, the ear clip snapped, fixed it then it died totally.

Still, if you really like the style; it is really small and it's not the worst deal ever

Well how well it works indoors with your PS3 isn't really a great indication much. Just that it works with a PS3.... as all bluetooths do.

The fact it can be setup to work with two I think is an important enough feature. More important than most of the nonsense the OP posted about, sorry.

However, I just bought a Jabra headset recently for around £15 from play and I hate it. Had all this fancy nonsense about how crystal clear the sound is. I leave my iPhone on my left trouser pocket and have the headset on my right ear and I get interference! They both need to be on the same side of my body to work well. What kind of bull is that? My 4 year old bluetooth headset had the same problem. Thought it would have been fixed by now.

But the two connectors is making this very tempting.

Maybe you're made of some sort of polymorphic alloy, hence the interference?


plus you are actually dom jolly and therefore need to shout into two headsets at a time "I'M ON MY HANDS-FREE'S!!!"

I AM A MACHINE!

The two connections are useful because I like to use my headset on my mac with skype rather than a traditional headset. And it's seriously annoying having to make a connection when I want to use it on my mac and then reconfigure when I want to switch back to my phone and so on.. I'm guessing this thing can remember both connections so that's good. Just wonder how it knows which to connect to when both are in the same room...:?

If you have 2 sources connected, then as an example with 2 mobiles

mobile 1 rings and you answer and connect to jabra jx10.
mobile 2 rings and you get a bleep, you answer mobile 2 and audio will transfer.
I think thats right, cant remember as its been a while since ive done it but it does work well! (as long as this is a series II)

or in basic operation.
you have 2 mobiles connected, mobile 1 rings you answer and are connected to jabra jx10.
you finish that call
mobile 2 rings, you answer and are connected again to jabra jx10.

hope this helps :)

ps: i broke my ear hook, emailed jabra and they sent me a new one
#14
i think these are the same ones as vertu are now using, but have remodelled slightly....

http://www.vertu.com/in-en/ie/#in-en_accessories/collections/headsets there it is, the aerius only 10 million pounds! ok thats a lie, i dont know how much, but probably a grand or more.

however ive not used one as ive got a jawbone, but i didnt hear bad reviews when i used to sell them....
#15
excellent headset and great quality, just make sure you don't get a fake.
heat and rep...
#16
I've just gone for this, then checked the Jabra website. The Cara manual states that it can link to 2 devices, and the spec sheet states that both the steel and 24 carat gold versions come with...

"Jacob Jensen designed desktop charging cradle, leather pouch, necklace, and in-car charger".

Now, I doubt that £18 can get you all of that, but I'd be chuffed if it does!!! (and is it just me, or does the gold version look v v cheap?!)
#17
I'm officially chuffed.

Arrived today. Comes in a very nice black presentation box (magnetic closure, anyone?!), and does indeed come with leather pouch/box, and all the extras. Seemed to have some battery life out of the box, but charged fully using USB charger in about an hour. Yet to use properly, but v light.
#18
I too ordered one from Play, it arrived with all the extras (gen leather storage box, neck strap, charger,in car charger etc.) and seems incredible for the price, I called a friend to test the quality and he was blown away that I was using a headset (it was for my watch phone ) I have tried many others and none come close, this is the real deal. I am suprised play sell them at this price, I would have thought the extras alone would cost £18.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#19
can someone test it and confirm you can connect to 2 mobile phones at the same time? i suspect this is the jx10 series 1 and not 2 which in theory is not multipoint.
#20
http://www.jabra.com/Sites/Jabra/UK-uk/Headsetsupport/Pages/JabraJX10.aspx

Check the website, it doesn't say anything about being able to connect to two phones at the same time (multipoint), I don't think this model has the feature.
#21
Surboy - I can confirm that this IS a series 2 device - the bluetooth discovery finds it as "Jabra JX10 series 2".

Hope this helps.
#22
Absolutely cracking deal - Play are selling the basic model for £45.99 - so £18 for this advanced model is ridiculous!

Even if you buy it and don't like it, you can always whack it on eBay and make a few quid.
#23
Many thanks Stud, in that case I am going to order one from Play.com and give it a go. It seems an amazing price for the headset and all the accessories!!! If anyone can share their recent experiences of this headset it would be great. Cheers, Surboy
#24
I just received my Jabra JX10 and done some testing, what can I say, I am so chuffed I bought it!!! The headset is super comfortable and comes with all necessary accessories. At £17.99 is an amazing bargain. If you have been thinking whether to get it or not just get it, don't bother reading too many Internet reviews, the bottom line is that this headset is outstanding value for money.
#25
^^ what he said. :D
#26
This is a fantastic deal,
recieved mine yesterday charged it up and have used it all day today with great results .
I am very impessed with all the accessories that are included it is incredible for the price
10/10 Many Thanks to the OP
