    I have had a lot of smart phones but never used bluetooth headsets and have a few questions.

    Can you get a bluetooth earpiece for answering phone calls that lets you answer from the headset once paired?

    Do all the earpieces support streaming or playing music/sprint tv audio/Google listen?

    Are they all mono or do some single earpieces have stereo?

    Is there an industry standard for noise reduction that I should look for in the feature list?

    Any other tips if I just want to buy one and be satisfied its the right one?

    The one i've eye'd is the Jabra BT530.

    Thanks in advance!

    I use the Jawbone Prime and have had no issues. People I have talked to say they thought I was on the phone and not a headset. I had the original Jawbone but it was bulkier and this one is much smaller. I like it alot. The noise reduction is very good and yes, I can answer by pushing on the headset etc. It is only for phone use. If you want to listen to music you will need bluetooth headphones or if you're in your car a bluetooth system.

    Update -
    I bought the Jabra BT530 i was looking at. Sound quality is excellent, It supports A2DP which means it plays music, has great noise cancellation and great battery life. Don't need those headphones after all!
