Question Good headset for 8703e?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. My husband has an 8703e for work. He spends a lot of time on the road, and I want to get him a headset so he can use his phone hands free (I'd just do a car kit, but the headset could be useful when he is working, too). Anyway, I need to keep it to $50 or less. I want something that will allow him to answer calls without having to take the phone out of the case, will allow voice dialing, and will keep background noise to a minimum. I found some decent deals on the Verizon web site (that's who his carrier is): Jabra VBT185Z, Jabraź VBT135Z, Motorola H385. Can anyone tell me if these are decent headsets? Is there something better in the price range I need to stay in? It needs to be easy to use, too. He doesn't have a lot of time or desire to mess around with technology. Not asking much at all, am I? Thanks for any input you can offer.

I used the Motorola H700 and it is a low-cost, easy-to-use headset that works with the 8703. I believe you can find it online for under $50. I have used it with several BlackBerrys with great results.
