Jabra at MWC - quiet sensation

Jabra Clipper

This headset may well be considered as a sequel to the BT3030, although it's quite another question whether or not users of the latter will be willing to change a tag for a clip. I think some will, as the new Clipper retains all the advantages of the original BT3030, even though its design is much more unpretentious, thus more appealing to a wider audience: no chromed parts, or tag-esque shapes. It's also a lightweight at 20 grams. The Clipper is a very fitting name for the shape this headset is housed in - it's a clip that is easy to attach to any bag or pocket. The Clipper comes bundled with a pair of 3.5 mm earphones, probably the same as those that were found in the box with the BT3030. On top of that there is a 3.5 mm socket allowing you to use a pair of your own earphones. It can be bundled with two devices simultaneously, and its rated battery time is 6 hours for talk time. The Clipper's design is featured with soft-touch plastic and rubber pads on the inside that prevent it from scratching your expensive shirts or bag linings.

The headset's joystick somewhat reminds of the original iPod Shuffle, but that's only visual resemblance. All in all its design is fairly neat, all buttons blend with the casing, plus there is a light indicator on the front fascia. The Clipper gets recharged via microUSB, plus it supports Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR.

But the most important part is its price - the Clipper will go for 50 Euros in Europe.

Jabra Extreme

It's not a coincidence that this headset is called "Extreme" - the press-release states that this "device ensures highest speech quality even in the most extreme environments". By and large, it continues Jabra's ideas regarding mono-headsets, as it packs all their greatest gimmicks:

  • Noise Blackout Extreme - two-microphone setup that can cancel out noises up to 24 dB.
  • A2DP support
  • Very easy-to-use car chargerУ
  • Multipoint support that allows the user to couple the headset with two devices simultaneously
  • Auto volume adjustment

The Jabra Extreme supports Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, and boasts 5.5 hours of battery time. Recommended price - 70 Euros, which is quite steep for such a no-frills design. Although as as speech quality is concerned it's pretty good.

I hope that 2010 will be a much better year for Jabra, as opposed to the crazy 2009 with all its fears and failures. Also, it seems they are going to cut down on the number of new products.
