The stereo Bluetooth headsets are becoming more and more popular than ever, that’s why we can find a few new devices every week, as we found the JayBird Stereo Bluetoth earbuds. The JayBird JB-100 headset is a compact stereo earbud set, that can be used with Bluetooth ready devices or with adapters for the iPod and other audio devices, that are sold separately. The JB-100 falls comfortably between two close competitors: the Etymotic Ety8 and the Plantronics Voyager 855. This headset has its downsides, but if you can get a comfortable fit, it’s a worthwhile consideration.
The JayBird JB-100 offers a nice, low-profile design, especially compared with another Bluetooth earbuds headsets.. The bulk of the earpieces is contained in the two crescent-moon-shaped units that curve behind the ear when worn. Passersby probably won’t even notice them, particularly if the user has long hair. To keep the bulk to a minimum, JayBird elected to not offer playback controls on the headset. Instead, you get a Call/Power button and volume up/down controls on the right ear piece. A thin cable, meant to be worn behind the head below the hair line, connects the right to the left ear piece. The left unit features a small battery contact panel, which connects to a corresponding section on the included charging dock.
The JB-100 is compatible with iPod’s, iPhones (it can take phone calls, too), MP3 players, Bluetooth mobile phones, PC, Mac and gaming devices, using the Bluetooth adapter sold separately.
You can find the JayBird JB-100 online for around $129.99 from the JayBird official website.
