Jabra BT135 Mini Review

I was looking for an affordable bluetooth headset with good sound quality over the weekend. I ended up buying a Jabra BT135 for RM99 at Queensbay Mall, Penang. I thought I'd write up a small review that hopefully will be useful for you. Here are the specifications :

Specifications :

  • Three exchangeable snap-on strips included:
    Afterdark Black, Ski Patrol Red and Moss Stone Green.
  • Up to 8 hours talk time and up to 170 hours standby time.
  • Lightweight and comfortable - weighs 14g.
  • Coloured light indicator (LED) for status on Bluetooth, battery and charging.
  • Answer/end call.
  • Voice dialling support.
  • Last number redial.
  • Bluetooth 2.0 supporting headset and handsfree profile.

The design has been described as "retro-futuristic". I don't really know what that means, but it has a simple black lightweight body with clean lines. The arrow shaped action button is easily pressed and performs all the usual functions. To pair you must first switch it off (press and hold for 5 sec) then press the button for another 5 seconds till the button backlight stays on continuously. The pairing code is 0000. I had no problems pairing it with my Dopod 838 pro.


The only other 2 buttons are the volume up and down buttons on the top. Now the main reason I bought it is because the speaker sound quality is very good. It has a deep bassy sound which distinguishes it from the common tinny sounds associated with cheaper headsets. Jabra has a good reputation to uphold and they have put in a quality speaker in this entry model.
I happen to listen to a lot of movies and streaming radio on my Dopod 838pro and this little headset performs well in that capacity.


The microphone is a simple hole but the pick up is pretty good so far. It does not perform that well in windy or loud background noises. However it was ok for use during shopping in Tesco and in the car.


The speaker does not stick into your ear but rests just outside your ear canal. It is quite comfortable but you have to adjust the malleable ear hook to fit your ear.



The ear hook is interchangeable from right to left. Unfortunately you cannot use it without the ear hook.

The button glows a nice turquise colour while in use.

The charging port is at the back with a nice wallcharger supplied. No car charger though.


Yes I need a haircut soon, but anyway here is how is looks like in my bespectacled ear. Not the smallest headset, but comfortable, good quality sound and good battery life. So if you are looking for a simple headset with good sound and battery life, the Jabra BT135 should be considered. For rm99 it's a good buy. By the way I got the little yelow Jabra Buggy as a free gift!

Thanks for the review.

Could you tell me how comfortable it is? I tried it today and wasn't really comfortable with it.

Furthermore, the jokers here in Kota Kinabalu are selling it for RM179! Can you imagine the price difference?

Cheers

It's not the most comfy bt headset, but it's quite light. You need to adjust the ear hook. But my ear hook just broke!

How about adding a picture of the charger. I am trying to tell if it is a standard mini-usb charger. If it is then I have one for the car already. :) The picture of the plug on the headset isn't clear to me if it is a mini-usb or not. Thanks for the time to write the review. Also, they are $10 on Buy.com today and free shipping is included.
