    See...you're a day late. And I'm $10 short now :(

    I bought one earlier this week, and it cost me more.

    I do like it as well as the B150. Volume, and lots of it :D But I haven't had it long enough for a good comparison. I suspect it will be as good, or better. If the batteries hold up better than the B150.

    It beats the #### out of a Jawbone...hands down.

    And it does seem to be constructed a bit heavier too.

    Nope...those are the B150's.

    That's were I got my 250. They had sold out of the 150's

    They're getting $98 for the 250.

    Most noticable changes. Light display colors are now red, green, yellow, and blue. Color of the headset itself, deep blue. And a thicker boom/shaft, on the mic. You also get an additional thicker wind screen for the mic. The tones are a bit differant also.

    The volume appears to be greater also.

    GearJammer.....

    A short apology. It is/was the B250 that Loves was selling. Saw the flyer this past week.

    But it wasn't the XT model. They now have the XT in stock.

    I've been using the B250XT. It's been really good. It can actually be way too loud. I back it off about 3 volume-downs from the top and it's still louder than any earpiece I've ever tried. People on the other end can't hear the truck at all. Battery dies on the second day I don't charge it, so I top it off every night. Comes with both A/C and 12V chargers.

    That 66' is line of sight only. If I leave the phone in the cab, it loses signal at about the fuel tanks.

    Did you leave it on a full 12 hours for the first charge? Very important that you do this. Don't cheat, not even for a single test call.

    I'm getting 5 plus days from a single charge with mine. But, I don't do a lot of talking. Maybe an hour or so per day, sometimes more. And I turn it off at night.

    Additionally, I noticed they said to leave it hooked to the charger to prevent battery drain when not in use. Even if the charger is not plugged into a source.

    I gave it well over the 12 hours initial charge. The problem with putting it on the charger when not in use is you can't use it, the light turns back red again and if you get a call you have to rip it off and press buttons and wait for it to sync up again. I use it about 3 hours a day. It was really only that one time it died the end of the second day, I'm just cautious about it. It would probably last longer. Standby time is quite a bit, if I don't use it over the weekend it still works Monday without a charge.

    Mine sync's pretty fast. But I turn off my phone's bluetooth anytime my headset is off.

    I have noticed that the BP will actively seek connections...at all times. It's not supposed tot do that.

    I lose sync if I'm standing too close to someone else using bluetooth.
