Ratings and Reviews
The great and the ugly of the B450XT
The headset functions very well overall but there are two areas that are unacceptable for a headset in the $150-$200 range. First, it’s likely that you’ll lose a call when you try to answer it when it’s been in standby mode for a while. Also, even when connected to Bluetooth, if it’s been in standby mode you have to go to your Bluetooth settings in your phone and select the B450 (keep in mind, it shows as being connected)before you can answer a call or listen to music. My other issue is the weak construction of the headband. The end opposite the electronics has a lightly cushioned pad that swivels for a comfortable fit, and it does work until it falls apart. That swivel is held together with 4 tiny screws that aren’t strong enough to hold it together and it just falls into pieces. Even Gorilla Glue won’t hold it after it fails. Poor design folks! True, I’m not a trucker who puts it on and never removes it thru the day but I am in transportation and my job is much easier to do handsfree and that’s why I spent what I did. I still use it but it’s frustrating when something in that price range falls apart within 6 months.
Great idea, but flawed....
It's great to configure headset, provide pairing information, talk to other users with the same headset, and store the user manual. However I own the 350, and am unable to configure the parrot button- which was one of the reasons I picked up the headset to begin with.
Another great feature is being able to configure how much sound is required to activate the mic, so you can cruise with your windows down and not have it kick on the mic. Especially useful when dictating or giving Siri voice commands. I use an iPhone 6 Plus.
BlueParrott B250-XTS bought recently and it keeps disconnecting and I only pair it to one phone wasn’t happy so I took it back and exchanged it to B250-XT and now even more disappointed that B250-XT don’t do media like listen to Pandora or iTunes.....B250-XT is limited to calls only nothing else!!! 😡
Now my first BlueParrott B250-XT+ which I bought 8 YEARS ago still works but the battery is starting to not hold the charge now is why I bought a new one anyways the old BlueParrott B250-XT+ does everything from calls to media can listen to Pandora or iTunes 👍 so I plan to order me a new battery to swap out the old battery in my B250-XT+ so I can use my old BlueParrott listen to Pandora or iTunes while trucking down the road.
BlueParrott should not have change anything on B250-XT or B250-XTS models should have left it like the old B250-XT+
