    Ok, I want demonstrate Bluetooth headset JABRA BT8040, I have it.

    For me this model is very nice. With this model you get few ear gels (2x small, 1x medium and 2 large) and of course charger, headset Jabra, user manual…

    Ok, now why I bought this model and why I want share this with you is because this model have MultiPoint, you can connects up to 8 devices and 2 at same time (parallel/simultaneous work). I think this is very nice who have (use) two cell phone like me.

    How work this. First turn ON headset JABRA BT804 and then pair with yours cell phone and that's it. Ok now you have paired cell phones. When you get the call on the one device, another device will turn off. When the call will be done, another device will turn on. Very simple and useful.

    And to end this model support A2DP profile, stereo Bluetooth. You can listen mp3 songs but in mono sound.

    Looks like its 32.99$ on newegg.com. How is the loudness on the device? I current have an over the ear type from Motorola and i can never hear too well on it. Does it sound as loud as if you had an MP3 player headset on?

    You asked me: How is the loudness on the device? For me is good, you have volume control an you hear another side/person. But this is my first bloetooth headset and I can't compare with some another.

    And I don't use this device for lisen mp3 is better use for speech

    Well i meant for voice communication. Is it loud? Ive gone thru many headsets and none of them have a REALLY loud setting. Not that i need it, but sometimes if there is alot of noise, i tend to shutoff the BT headset and use the phone cause they arent loud enough.

    Ok, well, when I speaking on the headsets my interlocutor can hear me,the tone is very good, nothing better or less of when I use cell phone (Nokia N73 & HTC P3600) and I hear very good on the headsets when my interlocutor talking. I think I can say, Yes it is loud. Sometimes I have feeling when I use headset I hear better my interlocutor of when I use HTC P3600 (Trinity).

    And I want say You one bug on the this headsets. When I make connection with my cell phone Nokia N73 and HTC P3600 (Trinity), sometimes can happen disconnected of HTC device. And I don't know if this bug on the headsets or cell phone device.

    I have a question...it says it can support 2 devices at the same time. How does it this work. I want a headset...if possible that I can be using on the PS3 for games (so that's 1 sync up) and then if I get a call while using it on the PS3 I can switch over and answer my phone on the headset. So that's 2 sync ups. Is that what I'm able to do with the headset? I'm asking because I just bought it yesterday to try it out but haven't been able to figure out how to switch between 2 things.

    I don't know how it working with PS3 (I don't have PS3 and I can not check), with two cell phone work very good. Here I explain how:

    Cool, thanks. I think I'm going to return the headset anyway. It's cutting out the bluetooth connection on my ps3 remote for some reason. Maybe cuz of the multipoint stuff it does? Weird huh
