Default I need me a sweet bluetooth headset

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone PLEASE give me reviews/opinions on what ya'll think is the best BT headset for the 7130e from Verizon? I've tried a Logitech and the Moto 850 and did not like either. I thinking about trying the Plantronics Discovery 645 or the Jabra 500 next. Any reviews on either of these? I'm not even sure that the 645 has been released yet.
Thanks.

I like the Jabra BT250V. The newer looks sweet though!

There is plenty of info on BT on this site. Do a search on each one

I love the Moto H700. Very clear audio, many neat features such as taking/receiving calls, hold, mute, 3-way calls and more. The big thing for me was the size (its quite possibly the smallest/lightest BT headset yet, and looks quite nice), and the fact that it doesn't have an intrusive ear bud. Another bonus is that you can turn off the power completely by closing the boom. Many BT headsets cannot be turned off, they have to stay on stand-by.

I tried the Jabra 500, didn't like the weight or the earbud wedged in my ear constantly.

I'm gonna agree with TheShark on this. I have the H700 and I also like it very much. Good luck finding what you need.

I use the Moto700 and it is about the best I have tried. Still not perfect and background noise will kill it. I will not use a headset that inserts and seal the ear canal as it drives me nuts! BUT, these will most likely work best!

I will be happy when I get a car that you can get in, start the motor and have your cell phone services transfered to the vehicle. My BB7520 does not like my LX470.

Take some time to look around these forums- there is alot of info here already.

Look for a member named barjon- he has a website where he does reviews of headsets with audio clips and everything.
