    I do not know anyone who uses a BT headset anymore.

    I've been using the plantronic savor m1100 for quite a while. My backup is the plantronics voyager pro.

    Tried the jawbone era. The fit really sucks.

    Don't get the icon, get the era. Much better. Customizable options and just ridiculous battery life. Charge for barely 10 mins and you get 5 hours talk time.

    I can tell you the elite flip beats the era's battery life by a stretch. The customizable options rarely work right as well.

    The elite flip also has NFC technology that gives it a 300ft range with the nexus. ;)

    BlueAnt Q2.
    Reads texts that I receive to me, and also announces Who is calling.
    It really helps keep my eyes on the road :D
    Call clarity and volume is a JOY.

    I loved those features in the blueant headset, but once the earbud started freely rotating it would not no longer stay in my ear.

    BlueAnt has additional earbud attachments that prevent this as well as various alternate internal earbud attachments.

    Trief that one, it had muffled sound and unbelieveably cheap build quality.


    Btw, all a2dp bluetooths read texts to you if you have vlingo.

    Sounds like you got a bad one,
    Mine luckily is crystal clear.

    As far as craftsmanship goes,
    BlueAnt has some of the best out there.
    Love the wind protection during calls too.

    i still have my blueant z1 that i've had for years. great headset. only bad thing about it is the battery life. i'd rate that one better than the q2 in every way except battery life (although it isn't much different).

    Blue Ant Q2 and loving it. Don't forget it holds your contacts and can voice dial them.

    I use the Plantronics Voyager Pro. Its noise cancellation works awesome. It worked so well I advised people in the plant I used to work in to get them when we went to wi-fi phones (we ended up with about 20 people using them). Most reported both they and those they were talking too preferred them over the Voyager Pro to using the handset alone.

    I am using my Oticon BT Streamer along with my hearing aids.

    One thing about being hearing impaired is that my HAs are compatible with the BT device, and I don't have this chunk of plastic sticking out of my ear, The kids some times think I am talking to myself, but really am on a call.

    Plantronics Voyager Pro HD, use it all the time. When not on the phone I am streaming ESPN radio or music through it.
