The good: The Jabra BT125 is compact, lightweight, comfortable, and easy to use. The sound quality is great as well.
The bad: The volume rocker on the Jabra BT125 is skinny and flush to the surface. You also can't change the orientation of the rocker.
The bottom line: The Jabra BT125 is a simple compact headset that's easy to use and comfortable to wear and has terrific sound quality.

Summary: I bought this from Fry's departmental store because it really looked cute, small, and a well known brand Jabra, and also it was on sale. I did not use it for almost two months after I bought it because my cell phone was not blue tooth compatible. Just last week, I got the new Motorola Krazer phone which is blue tooth compatible, and I proceded to pair it with the Jabra which was easy and painless. But I tried to use it with the voice recognition commands, it failed miserably. It was not too bad in an absolutely quite environment at home, but when I tried to use it in my car (my car is very quiet inside), it picked up completely different contacts from the list on my phone. To make sure that the problem was not with the phone, I used the voice recognition commands using the phone directly, and it had no problem recognizing my voice command and find the proper contact. So the problem was with the communication from the headset to the phone. Without the ability to transfer the voice commands to the phone properly, I find this device useless.
Also, the quality was very bad, party at the other end could hardly understand what I was saying. Lot of hissing noice and message clipping.
Bottom line is - do not waste your money on this junk. Unfortunately, I cannot take this back to the store because it has been over a month already, and I am stuck with it. But if some one is interested in this, you can have it for half the price I paid for it.
great earpiece for the price.

Summary: the earpiece has great sound. all of the people i have asked tell me it sounds good on their end. the only downside is that it doesnt turn off that easy and you often forget its on. you answer your phone in your house and it is going thru you earpiece. the motorala has a boom that you close and it turns it off, this you have to hold the button for like 5 seconds and you often forget to do it.
Great Blue Tooth Headset For The Money
by gordon1fan on May 12, 2007
Pros: Comfortable fit on the ear and great call volume. Great Price!
Cons: None that I could think of.

Summary: I bought my Jabra BT 125 off of Ebay for a great price! This headset replaces my other headset, the Motorola H300. The Motorola H300 was too uncomfortable on my ear when wearing it for a long period of time. The Jabra BT 125 is so comfortable on my ear that I can't even tell that I am wearing one. The Jabra BT 125 headset has great call volume and sounds! This headset works great with my Cingular LG C400 phone. This headset is highly recommended

Pros: Price, comfort, size, pairing
Cons: Range, inconsistent on many levels, volume adjustment & usability,

Summary: The cons:
The biggest con for me is the volume and everything about it. When adjusting the volume (which is delayed and takes a good second or two between up/down clicks), the audio cuts out on both my end and the other persons. In other words, we completely lose communication when I am adjusting the volume. The volume adjustment button is tough to access because of its size and location. The volume doesn't go high enough. With my moon roof back going only 40 mph, the other party not only complains of wind noise but also I struggle to hear them even w/ the volume all the way up on the phone and the headset. I have good ears and am 23 yrs old. Some people said it sounded like I was on speaker phone, even when I was in a very quiet room. Others said the quality was good w/ the same surroundings. The range is very short and also inconsistent. Sometimes I start to notice static when I'm only a few feet away, sometimes even when it is in my pocket. Other times it will work 20+ feet away w/ no static. The amount of time it takes for the voice activation menu to come up is very inconsistent; sometimes it will say "say a command" w/ in 1 second if me pressing the headset button, other times it will take 5+ seconds. Hanging up a call is delayed and also takes an inconsistent amount of time, once again, sometimes 1 second, sometimes 10+ seconds.
Finally for the pros.
It is comofortable to wear (I have large ears) and I liked the bendable wrap around ear support. It paired fine w/ my Samsung SCH-a930. It was only $40 at Best Buy, could have gotten it cheaper online, but it will be brought back to Best Buy after only having used it for 3 days (about 6 hours of talk time). Jabra made the package very tough to open with out demolishing; they probably knew a good % of the buyers would be returning it. I'm going to do extensive research before I buy my next bluetooth headset and not to mention, spend more money. I think I will be going w/ a Plantronics as I have had 2 Motorolas which were functional but not comfortable. You get what you pay for.

Summary: This is a great product, don't be fooled into thinking you need to spend alot of money to get a quality headset, I went from a motorola to the Jabra and I won't be going back. My biggest complaints about the Moto products was the sound quality....well the Jabra was answer. I was a little skeptical because I am a firm believer that "you get what you pay for", well in this case I got my money's worth and a whole lot more...I highly recommend this product
Had potential, but quality issues made me give up

Pros: Small size, bendable ear bracket
Cons: Ear bracket rotates on body of unit too easily, inconsistent charging activity and inconsistent quality between models

Summary: After reading the reviews of this product it looked like a good entry-level headset that serve my needs. The AC adapter on my first unit made a strange hissing sound and eventually the unit failed to charge. When it was working it was quite good though. I swapped it for a second one, and the second one never charged at all. I don't have time to keep swapping them for one that works properly.

Summary: I like it, but it has an internal battery that has failed to charge in two different units I've had. I can't find anyway to reset the battery, which usually fixes these kind of problem.
Do not look for other expensive gadget if you are just interesting in function

Pros: highest score in terms of cost/benefit ratio
Cons: one button for all function is a little bit confusing

Relatively inexpensive; good sound; not too comfortable

Pros: Cheap; light; good sound quality
Cons: Light plastic construction and restricted configurability make it a short-term use item.

Summary: I mostly agree with the c/net reviewer - this seems to be about the best value-priced Bluetooth headset - but not the best headset. The sound quality is good although the acceptable range from the handset (T-Mobile Dash) is limited to a few feet. The simple over-the-ear hook slides into a sleeve on the backside of the earpiece and can be pulled out and pushed back in from the opposite direction to switch ears. The location of the attachment sleeve and the minor configurability of the hook limit the comfort of the 125 for long-term wear. The light plastic construction does not give me confidence that the unit will last very long, however. Not unique to this model, but the mike placement so close to the ear makes for limited usability in noisy environments. The volume rocker may be flush, but a quick glance at the manual shows you where it is and how to use it and the audible feedback clearly confirms your success.
Relegated my BT250v to backup status.
by Rat City Ramsey on January 21, 2007
Pros: Lightweight and the people I talk to love the microphone.
Cons: Needs to be reconnected to my phone far too often, and the volume is very vexing.
Summary: The people who matter (the ones who talk to ME on the phone) overwhelmingly prefer the sound quality on this earset over the BT250v's much vaunted boom microphone. I ...
Summary: The people who matter (the ones who talk to ME on the phone) overwhelmingly prefer the sound quality on this earset over the BT250v's much vaunted boom microphone. I would prefer the sound quality of an "in ear" speaker, but seeing how that is the part that immediately broke on my BT250v, I'll take the tradeoff.
For some reason this earset will disconnect from my phone. This has never happened while in use, but I seem to be reconnecting or pairing on a daily basis.
Now about that volume control... It is hard to find and either impossible to use or else it simply makes no difference at all in the actual volume of the device.
All said, when my BT250v comes back from its repair voyage to Jabra it will definitely be the backup earset to my BT125.
