Which Bluetooth headsets work properly with LG 325
I have tried the Cardo Scala 500 and it does NOT work properly it is recognized as a carkit and not a headset profile and thus does not transfer automatically, has to be done from the handset. The Jabra 250 does work correctly and fully, but was hoping to get something a little more modern than that headset.
To work correctly it should transfer audio to the headset automatically when you answer and make a call from the handset without manually transferring the audio to the headset. The Cardo is also pretty static-y unless you hold the phone a within 12 inches of the headset which defeats the purpose of the headset anyway.
One that I have had personal success with is the Plantronics M2500, it doesn't get staticky without interference (Bluetooth runs on the same frequency as 2.4ghz home cordless phones) my only issue is that it doesn't have a noise cancelling mic, so when I ride the motorcycle I'll have to be either stopped or under 20mph.
I have also heard the Motorola HS850 is pretty good too.
Thanks for the info, I was looking at the M3500 Plantronics and I have seen some of the motorolas on clearance at the local office supply stores, I'll have to check them both out. From the reviews it appears the M3500 has some degree of noise cancellation.
That would be the Plantronics M120 which has been discontinued, it doesn't have an answer end button (but that is actually a good thing, I'd rather not take my hands off the bars just to answer the call.)
In regards to Bluetooth, does anyone know of an MP3 player that will allow a bluetooth headset to be used? I've been looking into the Samsung A800 and a bluetooth adapter. I think this might be the way to go, I can answer any incoming calls automatically, and be listening to music in between calls, all on one device, with one headset. I'll post this on the A800 threads, ...
I've paired an hs850 to the 325 for a customer and it worked fine, so I don't see why that would be different for you.
One thing to try would be somewhat redundant but maybe a BT adapter, this would make the phone recognize the headset as a wired headset, so you would be able to answer by pressing the answer button on the headset or you could set it up to auto answer after 2 ri...
