Video: Nokia J (BH-806) Bluetooth headset unboxing, gallery and preview.

| July 13, 2011 | 21 Replies

The folks at WOMWorld have sent over the Nokia J, aka, The Nokia BH-806. Appropriately renamed around the shape, the Nokia J is a super stylish Nokia Bluetooth Headset. This is useful of course for handsfree phone calling whilst driving, though its also somewhat associated with busy business type folk.


Here’s a quick unboxing video. Photos and first impressions/preview below.


The packaging is pretty cool. It’s the classic blue Nokia box but the product (Nokia J) is encased in a clear plastic cage to show it off.

You can pop this off to reveal a slide out box contents

You get a charger, a clip on case, different size ear buds and a concise leaflet of instructions.

The design of the Nokia J is very minimalistic. It’s a sleek, curvy mirror clad, inconspicuous looking headset. If you have longish type of hair, people won’t even know you’re wearing this. If you have short hair, it sort of looks like jewellery. Though not as epic as the Nokia pirate earrings.

You’ll note that there are no hoops or ear loops to secure to the ear. The only thing that keeps this in your ear is the silicone bud itself (and you’re supplied with a few of varying sizes to get the fit just right). Surprisingly you can jump up and down and the Nokia J won’t fall out. But that’s if you get the fitting right. I don’t recommend this though.


The Nokia J comes with a case. Not just any ordinary case.

Sliding the Nokia J inside doesn’t just protect it, it switches the Nokia J off.

Taking it out switches it back on. A magnet secures the Nokia J in place

The case has a clip on the side so you can clip this inside a shirt pocket or anywhere for that matter. Finally, the case is also how you charge the Nokia J. Underneath is a microUSB port.

When charging a LED light on the round part of the Nokia J lights up red. When you unclip it, it turns green to show you it’s on and if already paired, it takes about 1 second to find your device and pair automatically. When paired, LED light is blue.

Pairing is really simple. The Nokia J starts speaking to you in various languages to press the call button which will set the language. This is useful as it gives notifications, like like “connected” or “battery low”.

It will also give pairing instructions. Pairing with a Symbian^3 phone is really simple. On the N8, open Bluetooth, search for devices and find the Nokia J (BH-806). No pairing code necessary. To make a call from the Nokia J, you press the one button to redial the last call. Alternatively, press for two seconds to use voice dialling.

Something that’s really cool is how you can pair two devices at the same time. I used a Nokia N8 and Nokia N86 (the nearest charged phones to me) and the Nokia J would connect simultaneously and answer calls from the appropriate phone.

The sound quality is superb actually. More on this with more testing.

I haven’t used this extensively, only receiving it yesterday.

Battery life? Well the stated says 5h, with an epic 3 MONTH standby time.

    Unlike most mono BH headsets, this is EXCLUSIVELY for calls.

    Thanks for the review and pics. I even want to drool over this even though the battery life hinders me.

    Thanks again. I love all your reviews. The Nokia J makes me want it for collection and some occassional uses, too.

    When will be this thing released? I’ve been waiting it for so long ever since its launch. Jay, can it play music from N8?

    • Mike

      I have the Nokia J and and i’m very happy with it. Soundquality is great. Lacks the power and range for musiclistening tho. But as for calls it’s great. And yes it plays music from the N8 ๐Ÿ™‚

    Where do you buy these things? I can only find them on shady websites for months now and since the U.S. Nokia site closed, I’ve got less places to look. Been dying to buy one.

    Having bh-804, I’m quite interested in this little fella. Looks great, however can you tell us more about earbuds, how secure they fit. I’ve had a problem with earbuds that came with bh-804 as none of the sizes gave me secure fit. At the end, I have purchased Plantronics replacement ear gels (with small loops at the end) in order to get secure fit. I’m not sure if they would fit bh-806 (aka J).

    I was going to say this is the most sexy thing you can stick in your ear, but some of the regulars who comment here have very weird preferences…

    Jay – I’m going to buy one of these on the strength of your recommendation; thanks for a great review – as ever

    guys.. got this and the eargel sucks… the headset DOES’T stick in the ear…even with 6 diff sizes of eargels that comes with it!!

    • Emely Philip-John

      I just bought a Nokia J-BH -806 for a friend, May 2012. The ear piece is a pain. If you are the on phone for a while the ear piece falls out. Is there any remedy to have the ear piece fit securely in the ear.The sales person was so convincing that the product was wonderful. Sound quality is great but what do you do with ear piece. Love to hear from anyone for an alternative. Wondering if I should return the item!

    can the nokia J just be worn for the day or when driving and answered when required with a button press?
    Thanks Craig

  • Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out
    there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions?
