Question Decent (stereo?) Bluetooth Headset for BB?

Please Login to Remove!

I have tried headsets from Nokia, Logitec, Plantronics and Callstel with both my earlier BB8820 and my current BB8900 with resulting frequent complaints from other parties to the conversation that they don't hear me well. The Plantronics model (Voyager PLT 510) was even specifically recommended in one of the BB fora. Having struck out so many times, I don't want to buy something else without broad confirmation of good performance. From the form factor, I would like something similar to the Jabra BT8010 which allows the use of a small mono earpiece yet still offers the option of stereo listening. What experience have other BB users had with the BT8010? If negative or none, what would you recommend instead?

I have both Altec Lansing Backbeat 903 and 906 models (903 was a present) and most people I talk with on the phone won't notice that I'm on BT.
I use them mostly for music and they have been solid even while working out and rock climbing.
One time they froze maybe due to interference and got stuck unusable but I reset it by holding power button and plugging to charger at the same time.

My only complain is that they tend to cut a little bit if you are jogging outdoors. But at the car, office, home and at my backpack while rock climbing they have been awesome.

Battery life is around 7 hours of continuous music or phone
