Jabra SP200 Bluetooth Speakerphone for Hands-Free iPhone 3G/3GS Action


The Jabra SP200 Speakerphone for iPhone 3G/3GS [$59-95 - iMore Store link] is a great Bluetooth headset alternative that you really have to try yourself to fully appreciate. I can not recommend it enough.

I've been using the Jabra SP200 for about a month now and I can honestly say that I've stopped using every single Bluetooth headset I own while driving my car. Simply connect the SP200 to your cars visor, flip the power switch and you are good to go. And go you will - Jabra claims the battery life comes in at 10 hours of talk time and 23 days of standby time. I am happy to report that these claims are dead on accurate.

Now to get to the most important part of a Bluetooth device, sound quality. I was pleasantly surprised on how well not only the person I would speak to sounded, but how well I came across to them as well. Volume is definitely not an issue with the SP200 as not once have I had to turn it up to it's full capability.

As for controls it's pretty simple. You have a volume dial, power switch, and a answer/hang up button that also doubles as an redial button. A great feature that I enjoyed greatly was the ability to leave my car without turning the device off. If I was gone for less than 15 minutes, as soon as I got into my car the device would automatically detect my iPhone and connect instantly. After the 15 minutes if you do not get back into your car, it will automatically power itself down. A simple touch of the answer button will make the re-connection. Need more specs?

  • In-car speakerphone for hands-free calls
  • Easy to use with no installation
  • Noise reduction and echo cancellation (DSP)

The Jabra SP200 Bluetooth Speakerphone can be purchased for $59.95 from the TiPb iPhone Store.

Jabra SP200 Bluetooth Speakerphone for Hands-Free iPhone 3G/3GS Action


Personally i like the jabra sp700. Basically similar to the 200 but it has A2DP bluetooth for when i want to listen to music from the iphone, its also a FM transmitter so i can listen to it over my cars stereo.

How much is this unit? I am extremely interested in it as I hate having to put a headset on in the car every time and my car does not have built in bluetooth. But something like this would be awesome.

This article is just posted at the right time, I'm looking for a new bluetooth headset. Thanks for the information.

I have SP700 and ever since I upgrade to the 3.0 software it does not work. Dont know why. But when it was working it work great.

How does this compare to just putting your iPhone on speaker phone and pinning it between the ceiling and the visor? I've been doing that for awhile, and it seems to work just fine.

my SP700 works like a charm. i got the Iphone 3GS with the lastest firmware. so it should work. the voice control works too!!! just hold the button down on the SP700 for 2-3secs. :) so awsome!

Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I have truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!
