    Just got my EVO yesterday! :) Can anyone suggest a good bluetooth headset under $100????

    I was looking at the jawbones or plantronics voyager pro. I am a girl, so i don't want anything really big and ugly KWIM?

    Any suggestions are appreciated!

    I went from Jawbone 2 to the Voyager Pro both with my EVO. Much happier with the Voyager. After years of insanely loud heavy metal I don't hear quite so well and the Jawbone isn't nearly as loud as the Voyager at full volume.

    Voyager has a much bigger battery too. I would get 1 maybe 2 days out of the Jawbone while I get nearly a week out of the Voyager.

    I have a Motorola H17 and H680 or H690. Those are good for genearl phone calls.
    I also have a Motorola S305 stereo blue tooth that works great as well.

    Without a doubt, jawbone icon. Not sure how different the Era is, but I had the jawbone 2 (which was just okay), switched to the Icon when I got my EVO and it's been the BEST decision I've ever made.

    And there are some REALLY good deals on the Icon online right now.

    I like my Motorola H720 headset, sound quality is great, battery life is 8+ hours of talk time, has a little bit of noise cancellation nothing crazy, stylish, comfortable ( I can't stand ear buds that go down into my ear canal). And with the help of Super BT Mono app from the market place, it makes a perfect ear piece to listen to Tune In radio via bluetooth. At 59 dollars the price isn't too bad either.

    Motorola H17, I've bought the Motorola Endeavor and the Motorola Finiti which are "rated" better. However, I always seem to go back to my H17, I love it. It's not intrusive on the ear and it's not painful or uncomfortable after hours of use. I wear it everyday and almost refuse to talk on the phone without it, definitely worth a look!

    I went with these: Amazon.com: Stereo Bluetooth Backphones: Cell Phones & Accessories from buy.com for ~$45. Definitely worth it! They have great sound and are pretty comfy. The reason I linked you to Amazon is because of the reviews. I believe they just discontinued them for whatever reason, so if you decide you want some check around The Google :)

    On a side note, I wear mine at the gym when I'm lifting/cycling/whatever and the sweat doesn't make them gross or anything. Not having the cord is a blessing!

    jWIN-JBTH710 is the make and model

    Can some one discuss the big differences between the Jawbone ERA and ICON?

    Seemingly great ICON prices on Amazon ($48) vs $130 for ERA...


    lost my Plantronics 975 and need a replacement soon.

    Need one with a clear and loud speaker...

    thanks

    I'd like to know the differences as well. I love my Icon and upgraded to it from the Jawbone 2. I'm wondering if it's glaringly better or just subtle differences/improvements.

    I have both the Era and the Icon and unfortunately the era is worth the extra money. my main usage is phone calls and listening to audiobooks with a2dp.
    The era is much louder which makes a hugue difference with both usages. the icon's max volume is just too soft.
    secondly the era is lighter which makes it fit much better. The Icon was just never comfortible for me. Eventhough it uses thw same type of ear pieces, the era fits me much better, i think it is the weight.

    so IMHO the era is worth the extra cost and my ICON has gone tp pasture with all my other multiple a2dp bluetooth headsets (don't tell my wife)

    For those of you that are deciding between the Era or the Icon, the Icon is on sale through www.1saleaday.com for $34.99+ cost of shipping.
