1 550x366 Jabra Drive Bluetooth Speakerphone Review

 

Today we’ve got the Jabra Drive Bluetooth Speakerphone to review. Hands-free kits are becoming increasingly popular and with so many to choose from it’s hard to know which one is best for you. The Jabra Drive retails at around the £50 mark, so it’s very reasonably priced. Let’s see how well it performs.

Before I removed the Jabra Drive from the box, I was quite skeptical as to whether or not it would have the power to allow for a crisp and clear conversation, due to it’s small design.  However, once removed from the box, I noticed that, although it’s small and light, it’s not flimsy or in anyway cheap and tacky.

Included inside the box you also receive a car charger that features a separate USB lead so that charging can also be performed when near a computer. An easy to follow set of instructions is also included.  So lets see how this device stands in the harshest environment I could find, my car.

The basic design of the Jabra Drive consists of a black speaker fixed to a big clip, essentially.  Saying that, it feels very sturdy and it weighs next to nothing so this design works very well.

It has three buttons, one switch and the charging socket.  The volume up / down buttons are located on the front, at the top.  The answer / disconnect button is the entire speaker face, which makes answering and ending calls very easy indeed.

The power switch is located on the right side of the device just above the charging socket.

On the front, towards the top of the speaker, there is also a flashing LED to show whether the device is connected and switched on.
