Default Jabra BT620s- A good, compatible choice?

Been looking for a pair of BlueTooth headphones for the P2 for a while, generally with inconclusive results.
I thought that is these BlueTooth headphones were good enough for the ABI front page, they were probably pretty good cop.
Not that I actually know, that's why I'm asking you if they'll work with the P2/ if you've got any better recommendations.
Yeah
Opinions?

i wrote that review youre linking to and i'm still very pelased with them and use them daily. There are some exciting competitors out there but nothing in that price range considering you can get them for 35 bucks on amazon. the price/quality ratio is what makes them such an excellent choice if you're on a budget. The sony DR-BT22 and DR-BT50 are two candidates that I've been wanting to review for abi as they have a very good reputation, but considering they are 3 and 5 times more expensive (respectively) it really comes down to your wallet. the biggest gripe I have with the BT620s is as i said the neckband solution, which the Sony's don't have.

DR-BT22 - sound dry and lifeless on the P2 because of dull and lifeless A2DP implementation on the P2. I didn't like this device under any of my test platforms. You're better off buying the insignia if you want the DR-BT22. The insignia sounds slightly better but for half the price.

DR-BT50 - too bass heavy for the P2. Has good sound characteristics for A2DP players that allow you to cancel out the extreme low frequency focuss and add mid and high using an EQ. The T9B can be made to make this headphone sing.

The A2DP implementation on the P2 & T10 are so underachieving that it would be hard for me to recommend any headphones outside of the motorola HT820 and S805. Even these units suffer under the P2 & T10. I've tried phones that sound better that these units under A2DP. The T9B is leaps ahead in A2DP potential.

Slurp,

I've tried to use the following with the P2 and T10:

1) DR-BT50
2) DR-BT22
3) Insignia NS- something
4) Samsung SBH600
5) Motorola S9
6) Motorola HT820
7) Motorola S805

The results varied somewhat but at the end of the day, I could not find a single BT combination that was great with the P2 and T10. The last three were the better combos in the reverse order listed. The T9B could be used will with most of the headphones listed and could be made to sound good once you adjusted for each headphone tendencies. The phones and computers I've tried also had better results than that seen with the P2 and T10. When phones sound better than dedicated mp3 playes under A2DP, you've got a problem.

I only use my 16GB P2 for wired service and have gone back to the 8GB T9B for BT.

And where might be the very cheapest place to buy these in the UK?
I'm yet to find a price comparison site I really trust...

I've heard good things about the Jabra BT620s so if you can find those, I'd give them a try. I just don't have any personal experience with them so I can't give them a thumbs up or down with the P2. Keep in mind, some good BT headphones may not sound good with some devices. I'll take a stab it and say the BT620 will sound better on devices other than the P2.
