Jabra Supreme UC Bluetooth Headset – Review
Most Bluetooth headsets fall in the $50-and-under category. So when you see one that has a list price of $150, you have to wonder if the headset is worth the investment. In the case of the Jabra Supreme UC, that very well may be the case.
The Jabra Supreme UC is equipped with active noise cancellation, wind noise reduction technology and noise blackout 3.0, which together contribute to better voice quality on both ends of the conversation.
CONFIGURING AND USING THE JABRA SUPREME UC BLUETOOTH HEADSET
The Supreme UC is compatible with both mobile phones and computers. To configure the headset with a computer, one must plug in the accompanying transceiver into a USB port on the computer, which automatically syncs the device as your computer’s speaker and microphone. The headset weighs 18 grams and has a microphone boom that extends towards the mouth allowing it to clearly pick up the user’s voice.
Pairing the device with my Blackberry Bold 9700 was more difficult than the instructions indicated, requiring me to call tech support for additional assistance. The main problem I ran into is that the user documentation was both vague and wordy at the same time. However, once paired, the clarity of the sound due to the many voice enhancing features made the struggle a distant memory.
The Supreme UC comes with all the accessories one would expect with such a device; including an outlet charger, USB charger, car charger and a carrying case. The battery lasted the full six hours as advertised.
The Jabra Supreme UC Bluetooth has excellent sound quality, great battery life, and is barely noticeable against the user’s ear, three very important qualities a Bluetooth headset should possess. That having been said, for $150, one would expect nothing less. Therefore, the Jabra Supreme UC is a great but pricey option.
