Default Bluetooth earpiece recommendation

Please Login to Remove!

When I purchased my 8310 I ordered a Plantronics stereo headset/mic and though it works okay, I don't like the confining feel of a full headset for just talking on the phone, plus the sound quality isn't real good, it seems muffled and not real crisp sounding. Any recommendations for an earphone/mic that is good quality?

Thanks!

Jawbone! stylish, neat, fits perfectly, sound is fab. Wouldn't go back to any other earpiece after using this.

Jawbone 2, Jawbone or the Blue Ant. All perfect. Jawbone 2 is even smaller, fits better than the Jawbone.

I agree. Jawbone or Jawbone 2. Nothing like it. I wouldn't use anything else!

I've been using the Jawbone and it's the best bluetooth earpiece I've had so far.

I've been looking at the Jawbone BT earpieces myself.. never had one but some buddies do and they love them. I've never heard anything but good things about them!! I'll be getting one pretty soon myself.

Jawbone 2 for sure. Get the Jabra eargels and throw away the useless jawbone wire clip thingy.

@LunaRay: I use the Blue Ant Bluetooth and I love it. I agree the Jawbone (either version) is great but a little costly in my opinion. I have had the Blue Ant for awhile now and it still works like a charm. <<<--- my .02

Jawbone was nice, but I turned for the improved user interfacing of the Motorola Pure H12 - better sound too.

I am using Samsung WEP200. It is small and black in color. Voice quality OK. Voice Dialing OK too. Recommended.

For music and talking on the phone, I love these stereo 2-ear Kyocera's - you can find em cheaper if you look around. I picked them up from woot for 25 or so last year if I remember right.

I want to give another vote for Blue Ant ... I have the Blue Ant Z9i and love it! I have owned the Jawbone, Jawbone 2, Blue Ant Z9 and now the Z9i ... The Z9i is my current favorite. US users can find it at your local Radio Shack.

I have a Blueant Z9 and it works great, it's comfortable and I rarely get any sound complaints.

Default Discovery 655 from Plantronics

I've had this model for a while and it's great. Great noise cancellation, and if you shop around, you can get it for a good price. Plantronics is top-shelf quality, with a lot of charging options, earpiece sizes, ear loop if you wish extra on-ear security, and more. Standby and talk time are fantastic, too.

I've also used quite a few different headsets and I must say Jawbone does rock it just a little bit harder...

Default Jabra BT8040

I love the Jabra BT8040, it's great for phone calls, it connects to multiple devices, and it has streaming audio so you can listen to XM or media player. Highly recommend it.
