    Havent' read many reviews, but might be worth looking at the new Sony Ericsson MW600 as well.

    Cheers saltorio, but i'd like one that doesn't need the extra bluetooth dongle thing. Just seems to me if I get one of those I may as well plug it into the phone anyway

    Updated the list, probably more for my benefit! (I guess no one uses bluetooth headsets then!)

    Hi,
    As an previous SE X1 i have the Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 & it works good with Desire too.
    One thing with those you need to test if it fits your ear.

    Regards
    Roy

    Fair enough. That's actually a benefit to me, as if I don't like the feel of the earphones it includes, I can just plug in a different set.

    It's a combination of a number of things:

    1. Features that you're looking for.
    2. Performance -- not only reception between the phone and the BT headset but sound quality, etc.
    3. Fit/comfort -- obviously very personal.

    You can read up about 1 & 2 but 3 comes down to trying them out.

    Well I went for the Nokia BH-503's.

    Basically it was down to those, the Plantronics and the little SE's.

    I would have gone for the SE IS800, if it wasn't for the 4 hours of battery life. The Plantronics supposed to have a good sound, but they look ugly to me.

    The Nokias really look pretty hot, decent sound, but the killer was the 11 hour battery life, that nailed it for me. Saw a youtube vid of a guy wearing them and they looked the best of the bunch style wise.

    I am slightly worried about noise leakage as I will be using these primarily on a 4 hour round train journey every day. If its too much, and will cause too much disturbance they are going back.

    I suppose your BH-503's have arrived now. Are you happy with them? My Desire's in the mail and I need some new headphones...

    My hearing aids have bluetooth so I can use whatever bluetooth device without any other headphones.
