The comfort issue with the M3000 is true for me too. I wish it were more comfortable and smaller. I may keep it anyway for those brief periods when I need a high quality sound and just suffer the size an pain. I should get the Bluespoon AX today or tomorrow and will see how it compares. Schmutzberry, I hope you have better luck with the BT800 than I did. Maybe it will fair better on the 7290. My wife was ready to throw me out with the headset it irritated her so much.
