Specifications � Jabra

  1. Bluetooth Compliance: Bluetooth v1.1 devices that support the headset profile.
  2. Bluetooth radio power: 2.5 milliWatts.
  3. Headset weight: 0.8 oz./23 g.
  4. Typical Talk Time: 3 hours; Standby Time: 96 hours; Charging Time: 2 hours.
  5. Rechargeable lithium polymer battery.
  6. Not waterproof.
  7. The "arc" spans ~ 3-1/8 inches/8.5 cm from the bottom of the microphone boom to the top of the earpiece and ~ 3-1/4 inches/9.3 cm from the back of the earpiece to the tip of the microphone housing.

Controls/displays: Two buttons and one blue LED.

  1. Multi-function button - a raised button with a handset looking icon raised above the surface of the button,
  2. volume control rocker switch with one side raised and the other depressed, and
  3. the LED.

Multi-function button - primarily used for initiating, ending, transferring and ending calls. It is also used for turning the headset on and off, and setting the headset for Bluetooth pairing.

Volume control - press on the raised part to increase the volume of the speaker, press on the depressed part to lower the volume of the speaker.

LED - one colour: electric blue, set in the back of the earpiece, above the controls, it gives one a decided cyborg look from behind. It is a steady light when the headset is being charged, and goes out when full charge is reached. It blinks periodically when it has a Bluetooth link and is ready to receive/transmit. It blinks rapidly to show transmission activity.

Power-on/off: press and hold until LED flashes to turn on, and press and hold until LED stops flashing to turn off.

Press and release to initiate call. The phone beeps and then the Jabra beeps. This seems to indicate Bluetooth connection. The speaker beeps louder, after which one can give a voice command.

Press and release to answer a call.

Press and release to transfer a call from the phone to the headset. Turn off headset to transfer a call to the phone.

Press and release to end a call.

This LED also shows solid when out of the cradle and in pairing mode, and blinks rapidly upon successful pairing.

Low battery warning: 3 beeps every 30 seconds while on a call, every five minutes when in standby.

Other Audible alerts:

  1. single high-pitched beep when multi-function button is pressed.
  2. quick series of 4 tones, low to high, when active mode is started; quick series of 4 tones, high to low, when active mode is ended.
  3. quick series of 4 tones, low to high, when power turned on; quick series of 4 tones, high to low, when power turned off.

A beep is sounded when the min/max volume is reached.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
