At first glance, you trust the Nokia BH-212 not all through the way. With its rubberized double bracket’s more reminiscent of a jumping frog as a headset.

The use of ear raises uncertainty, which is put in the ear, but were placed immediately before the ear canal. These concerns proved unfounded but fast: the BH-212 is pretty good.

Design and endurance

The Finns have done a great job, the BH-212 shines with superior stamina values of around 500 hours. Kudos earned Nokia also for pleasant wearing comfort. The double bracket locks the headset in the ear, which not deaf feel even after extended wear, since the audio plug is not directly in the ear.
