Jabra CLIPPER's in-ear headphones block external noise which enhance its clear, vibrant music and calling quality - leaving you to get lost in your music rather than the outside rumble. However, to make sure you're still connected to the outside world, Jabra CLIPPER automatically switches between your music and incoming calls to your phone. Plus, to prevent you from dropping out of range or leaving your phone behind Jabra CLIPPER cleverly features a mobile distance alert (within 10 m).
Enjoy wireless stereo music and hands-free calls with the innovative Jabra CLIPPER Bluetooth stereo headset, which combines a compact Bluetooth device that easily clips onto bags, clothing, and belts and noise-blocking earbuds. Aesthetically clean and appealing in design, the clip-on device connects wirelessly to your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone or MP3 player. Plug the comfortable earbuds into the 3.5mm headphone jack on the clip-on device, and you're ready to lose yourself in your favorite music or take calls when they come in.
Clip onto bags, clothing, and belts
while easily switching between music
and calls (see larger image).
The Jabra CLIPPER combines a tiny clip-on Bluetooth device with noise-blocking earbuds.
Additionally, the Jabra CLIPPER can connect to two devices simultaneously thanks to Jabra's Multiuse technology. There's no need to change between an MPE player and a mobile phone when a call comes in as both devices connect wirelessly to the Jabra CLIPPER, allowing you to switch between calls and music instantly. Additionally, incoming calls automatically override music played on a cell phone and, at the touch of a single multi-function button, you can easily pause, skip tracks or alter the volume. You can also keep a phone and MP3 player separately in a bag or pocket without breaking the connection.
The Jabra CLIPPER is designed as a clothing clip. This gives you a variety of simple and practical wearing styles: Just clip it on your shirt, jacket, t-shirt or whatever that fits your needs. It can also be used with any other 3.5mm headphones. The CLIPPER also features USB charging capabilities, an incoming caller alert, durable construction adhering to US Military rain and shock resistant standards, and up to 6 hours of talk time and up to 8 days of standby time.

- When you turn on your Jabra for the first time, the headset will automatically start up in pairing mode.

Top Customer Reviews
Pairing: This keeps getting easier with each device that I try. After charging the Clipper, I turned it on and it went immediately into pairing mode. I was able to pair it with my Droid X simply by scanning for Bluetooth devices and selecting the Clipper - no code required. I never understood the point of entering the generic 0000 code since it was the same for every device, but that is no longer an issue - at least with the Droid X.
Sound Quality: The earbuds that come with the Clipper are in a word dreadful. I switched to the medium sized set of buds in order to get a good seal, but the sound quality of the music was just awful. It was thin, muddy, and sounded cheap. Thankfully you can unplug these duds from the Bluetooth receiver and replace them with any 3.5 mm headphones/earbuds of your liking. The downside is that you will have to spring for these on top of the Clipper if you don't already have a pair available. For testing purposes I switched to my Creative EP-830 earbuds that came with my Creative Zen X-Fi. The change in sound quality is night and day different. If you don't already have an alternative just know that you are going to have to make an additional purchase for the Clipper to be usable. I am no audiophile, but even my untrained ears found the included earbuds beyond unacceptable.
Ease of Use: Usability has long been an issue with Bluetooth devices due to the dreaded multi-function button. The Clipper only has three total buttons when the + and - are added in. These three buttons control powering on and off, volume, play/pause, navigating songs, and call management. Each button does at least two things depending on context or length/type of press. I found this to be manageable but annoying. Others may find this frustrating. If you've had bad experience with multifunction buttons on other Bluetooth devices, you can expect more of the same.
One other are of note on ease of use is the "clip" itself. It will work really well on belts and belt loops as well as on shirts with buttons or your jacket. However the Clipper is very stiff, and I found it impossible to get it on my t-shirt sleeve using one hand. Yet if you get it secured, it should be very good for active use since it passes military standards for rain and shock resistance. While it doesn't free you from wires, it will keep you from pulling your high dollar phone or music player off of the treadmill.
Comfort: This is somewhat of a non-issue based on the poor sound quality, but the included earbuds are also not comfortable. This is just another reason to replace them.
Overall: The Jabra Clipper is an intriguing if imperfect Bluetooth stereo device. You can replace the included earbuds and still come at a decent price. It is promising for active use, but suffers from the same usability issues that are common among Bluetooth devices. I think it depends on what you are looking for. A couple of alternatives to consider are the Lg HBS-700 and Motorola S10-HD. Each of these has a different form factor and target different user types. Feel free to ask questions in the comments below.
The pairing and use of the Bluetooth has been very easy and no better or worse than my experience with any other modern Bluetooth device. Once paired, the Clipper has worked very well with my Droid X (both with the phone and for music with mspot or DoubleTwist), as well as my laptop, using different audio programs (Windows Media Player, VLC, etc.). As for the two main criticisms of the Clipper in the reviews (quality of earbuds and use of the clip), I've had a much better experience than many reviewers.
On the earbuds, I will acknowledge that these aren't anywhere near what you'd call high quality headphones. However, I think some of the reviews have exaggerated this. Maybe those people had fit issues, or maybe they've improved the earbuds slightly in a revision of the product (although I'm not sure why you'd "upgrade" your product from "horrible" to "mediocre"). In any event, my take on these earbuds is that they're far from the best, but they are OK, and definitely serviceable if you've lost your favorite earbuds or until you can buy a better pair.
I will say that fit is everything with the earbuds. They come with three sizes of tips, and I had to try various combinations to find the right fit (medium left ear, small right ear). If you don't get a good seal in the ear, you definitely would find these earbuds "dreadful" or "crappy," as some reviewers have. However, if/when you do get a good fit, you'll find that they are your typical, cheap earbuds. Muddy base and lacking in defined highs. But, as I said above, they'll get you through an afternoon if you don't happen to have your regular pair with you. Mids are fine, and voice calls on the phone are good with the included earbuds. Again, though, it's all in the fit.
As for the clip, I can see how some people might have issues with it. I've had no problem fitting it to any part of my clothing by holding the closed end between my right thumb and forefinger, prying the open end apart slightly (and CAREFULLY!) with my left forefinger, and using my right thumb and forefinger to hold the clip open as I slip it onto a collar or pocket (belt, strap, whatever). If you don't have strong fingers, though, this might be a deal killer for you. It does take some strength to hold the clip apart. And, as someone above said, if you just try to push it onto a shirt collar or pocket, it can be difficult get it onto stretchy material.
Because I haven't found the same problems with the earbud and clip as others have, I would say that I'm very pleased with the Clipper. The sound with my Sennheiser CX 300 earbuds is great. The call quality is very good, and the mic picks up my voice well when the clip is attached and I'm speaking normally. And, in my opinion, the best feature of all is that the part of every Bluetooth headset that frustrates most and fails first (the earpiece) is entirely interchangeable, so this solution should last much longer than any Bluetooth headset I've had in the past.
