    The best thing about bluetooth is that any bluetooth headset will work on any phone, i would advise you to go for the sony headset, it is designed for sony phones and it means that it will stay paired, where as if you get the jabra you will have to keep having to re - pair it with the p910 everytime you wanna use it, hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Mezz!!

    i have a BT200 Jabra used it with t68, X70 and K700i (GF has with V535) no need to keep re-pairing it at all blue tooth is bluetooth (should be but nokia, samsung and panasonic seem to really struggle!) the Jabra is the best one i have seen used and may be upgrading to a 250v soon

    I've got a P900 and the Jabra BT200. I've never had to re-pair them. IMHO the Jabra bluetooth headset is the most comfortable around.

    I've just got the 660 from Amazon for £35! Much, much cheeper than anywhere else.
    I'll be using it with my P910i, so fingers crossed it will work ok.

    Try and get one that can use the same charger as your phone - lot easier on long car journeys or travelling in general

    Well the 660 arrived and I've been using it for a couple of days. Looks good, works fine. The display is a bit of a gimmic, but the headset is light and comfortable. Don't know about battery life as I only use it morning and evening while I commute. Comes with a charger that is identical to the one for the phone. Still think its a bargain for £35.

    thanks for the reply cookie

    I also have just got the 660 from amazon and I used it for the 1st time yesterday - I wasnt that impressed to be honest, the ear piece did not seem to be that secure when wearing it on the ear. I lso had quite a bit of ear ache whilst I was working last night.

    As always, it is a matter of opinion and I will be returning this back to amazon in the next day or so. I have decided to go for the jabra bt250v the reason being that my last headset was the bt200 and I found this very comfortable and certainly provided a secure fitting.

    I hope this will be better and I dont mind paying that little bit extra.

    Cheers

    John

    Interested in the sony hbh-660.

    How did you get it for £35? I can see the 600 at £35

    The 660 is showing as £46 though?

    I am intrigued that you find it uncomfortable. The ear piece shouldn't stick in your ear should it? I can hear perfectly well with the ear piece sitting next to my ear. Or am I missing something? Sorry it wasn't for you. Better luck with the Jabra

    I am using the SE 660 with a P910i.
    I bought it in Carphone Warehouse in London (while on holiday) , and after a couple of calls, the caller id stopped working, when receiving a call although the lcd was fine, it just showed a phone symbol, but never the callers number.
    Took it in to Carphone Warehouse here in Ireland, and they gave me a new one , on the spot, and it has worked perfectly since.
    Battery is excellent too, and as someone said earlier, its really handy that you receive an identical charger to the P910i.
