- Stylish design, simple to use, USB charging, cradle
- Not a snug fit, expensive
Though it’s on the pricey side, the fashion conscious will appreciate the striking design features of the JX10
Price$ 249.00 (AUD)
If you've ever worried about looking a little silly with a massive Bluetooth headset stuck onto your ear, the JX10 from Jabra is the solution to all your style worries. With its contoured edges and silver black colour scheme, this little number simply oozes class.
The style doesn't stop as the headset though, with Jabra providing an artistically crafted and futuristic looking charging cradle. The box includes a USB cable charger, so you can charge the unit from your PC or you could use the included AC adapter to charge it directly from the power socket if you choose.
The JX10 is small, light and almost unnoticeable, and if people do notice anything, it will be just how professional this unit looks. Appearances aren't everything however, and Jabra has delivered both ease of useability and functionality to match their design.
Pairing this device with our phone was an exercise in simplicity - one long touch of the small pairing button put the unit into pairing mode and this was immediately picked up by our mobile. In all, the whole process took about 10 seconds, thus justifying Jabra marketing 'one touch pairing'. Although the pairing button is small, it's not one you'll use often nor do you want to be pressing it inadvertently, so we had no real problems with its size.
Unlike some other poorly designed units we've seen, operating the JX10 is very simple and almost as easy as the Plantronics 320. The Call Accept/End button is conveniently placed on the top of the unit, while two volume buttons are within easy reach on the back. Operating the unit is merely a matter of pressing and holding these buttons.
In the functionality stakes, the JX10 offers pretty much the complete package, with the ability to answer, end or reject calls, voice dialling, dialling the last number and call waiting. In our tests, we were impressed with the call clarity, although the range of the unit was a little less than the 10m specified, and call quality deteriorated rapidly at this point. Though the unit comes with ear hook, you can actually remove this and wear the device without it and while this looks better, we wouldn't recommend it, as the JX10 didn't fit snugly into the ear as others have.
Battery life on the JX10 is rated at 6 hours, a little less than average.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
