Summary: I had mine since 2008 or 2009, I used it every day. The only time this thing wasn't in my ear was when I was sleeping or in the water. It finally gave out recently and I'm gonna get this exact model. It works great, excellent sound quality, and it stays in you ear even when running!
Summary: I purchased this Jabra earpiece after I lost a previous Jabra unit. This previous unit was more expensive and worth it. Sadly that unit (I can't remeber the model) is discontinued. The other unit would stay in my ear while the BT8040 keeps falling out.
Summary: I was briefly looking at bluetooth headsets, looking for something smaller than this one. Nothing significantly smaller has come out yet. I've had this for over a year, and paid about $60 for it. A great purchase, one I'm quite pleased with a year later.
Summary: I was thinking maybe they could have a better ear piece, if you look inside the ear peice and remove it, the entire speaker section is not being fully used because of the rubber section for the ears.
Pros: Small, lasts long enough for my day, and it has a very good fit into the ear almost perfectly.
Cons: Although loud enough indoors, not so much loud enough when on the road while the windows are open.
Summary: I realized that New egg has shipped faulty used Jabra BT 8040 pieces to lots of customers as I read through the reviews. But they refunded my money promptly as soon as I called the customer service about the fault.
Pros: Reviews are great in electronics forums Prompt shipping Prompt refund of my money upon my call about the faulty unit
Cons: New egg shipped me faulty used unit, while I ordered for new unit. headset had scratches all over it. headset had almot 0-5% volume at maximum sound. Jabra's firmware upgrade works only from a WIN XP machine and will not work from vista machines yet.
Summary: It's worth for 20 bucks. I would recommend it to who also look for a2dp music streaming.
Pros: Small, light, strong build, sound great (not the best very good) I ordered two of these, they' all come in a plactic bag (with a instruction, extra gels, bluetooth, ac power charger, and usb card)
Cons: Refurnished not OEM. Come in a plastic bag. I ordered two one as a gift, but I had to send in a replacement because one is worn out. Newegg happily replace it, though it's still in process.
