Do any of you use a Bluetooth headset?

I am looking for recomendations for a good Bluetooth headset. It has to be comfortable to wear with glasses and needs to sound clear. If there are any out there that don't have a problem with wind noise I would be interested in hearing about those as well.

Any help would be appreciated!!

Thanks,

Jesse

i can say not to buy the one made by iogear. my gf has that one, and it sounds like crap and doesn't fit in her ear very well.

none for me since i don't have a bluetooth phone.

i use a headset its the motorola HS810 i think. it has a flip boom and its pretty comfortable and i wear glasses. the sound is pretty clear and the other line can hear me pretty well. the only downside is that if im laying down it kinda slips a bit.

I have the HS820. It's a light, comfortable, and has a reasonable battery life. I would recommend it.

I've got the logitech one. It works, but you can't have the volume up too high or else the person on the other end hear's an echo of their voice. Guess the mic is too sensitive for its own good.

I don't use one but I have seen one headset that is made to clip on to your glasses instead of going on your ear. I know Verizon has it and people I know that have used it say it works pretty well.

Hi Jesse, do you plan on using the headset with plastic or wire-frame glasses? Most over-the-ear headsets will conflict with eyewear to a certain degree.

I have plastic frames and I'm currently using the Nokia HS-11w. I find it fits very securely and has great sound quality (nice and clear with good tonal balance).

I also have the Bluetrek G2 which is very light weight and can coexist quite well with eyewear because of the thin rubbery loop. The main downside is that the sound is kinda high and tiny like it's all treble and no bass.

Another thing to consider is that heavier headsets will strain your ear over time. I found that was the case with the Nokia HDW-3 which had a sharp plastic loop. Though pricier than most others, you can check out the Nextlink Bluespoon AX2 which fits in your ear (like an earphone bud) as opposed to on it. I haven't tried it but it seems ideal for eyewear.

Here are a few websites to read about headset reviews:
www.MobileBurn.com
www.howardchui.com

Hope this helps.
