    Sounds interesting, but music in just one ear seems like it will eventually have some adverse affects on ones equilibrium a bit.

    Review :Jabra BT8040 single ear A2DP headset with streaming music

    Ok here is my quick review for those interested in a single ear bluetooth headset that streams music.......:Jabra BT8040


    Just got it a couple of days ago and have been so hooked on this.The headset is really small and light but dont let the size fool you.....this little thing really packs a punch when using it.this little baby also allows you to pair with 8 different devices and 2 devices at the same Time!!!!.....lol.....so basically i can be on my laptop using VOIP with a friend using the jabra BT8040 and when a call comes in through my phone,i just hit the button and it switches to the phone and when im done,hit the button and it switches back to my VOIP.....cool huh?Ill write alittle on the quality of Voice and Streaming music below.

    1. Voice

    The sound was really crisp and clear and the person on the other end had no trouble hearing me at all.i tried driving and using this headset with my windows down and that was no problem too.However if you are standing in front a passing train which i did,it didnt do so well.The other caller could hear alot of noise from the train but could still hear me pretty well.Im not sure how other headsets compare to this situation but i dont think many would fair well either.If you are going to compare the noise cancellation tech of the Jawbone.The Jawbone does better.I really have no complains of the quality.

    2.Streaming Music

    Frankly,before i actually tried this,i had my doubts about the music quality because this is the only singel ear headset that i know off.After trying it,I was really blown away by the quality......it was loud and really very clear.Even standing 30feet away between walls,i had no problem with streaming of the music.....it was still as crisp and clear as having my phone on me!!!......

    I can tell you that anyone who gets this would really be so sastisfied with it lol like i am...Im not really a big fan of Bluetooth headsets but this one is really worth a mention.Some pics below......Enjoy!!!

    Word of caution. The BT8040 does not play well with my 8100. It streams audio fine, but the phone has crackling cutting out and static. There are some threads about this problem. There is a workaround of disabling the "Handsfree" bluetooth function, but then you loose voice dialing and some other features.
