Default Bluetooth Earpieces

Please Login to Remove!

What Bluetooth earpices are best for use in a vehicle or other areas with ambient noises?
I am currently using the Motorola H900 and it picks up to much surrounding noises.

Thanks
Robert

Aliph Jawbone. Absolutely the best in noise reduction. It is pricier.

I second that.

I use the Jabra BT-250v or the Motorola hs500. But from all I have heard, the Jawbone is the best.

H700 is good. I find it best for overall volume. NR is decent as well.

I got a Jawbone, and then saw a nice tip in another website. Grabbed an old Jabra ear jel, dab of crazy glue, and did away with the ear loop. Sound is around 10% louder, and the fit is comfortable and secure!

kjaslow - It functions correctly without the earloop? I thought part of the purpose of the ear loop was to keep the sensor pushed against your jaw... Can people hear you ok without using your hand to press unit against your jaw?

With the Jabra eargel, the sensor does stay against my jaw. On the other hand, with the normal ear piece and the ear loop, the sensor still stays put, but there's a spring in the hinge of the ear loop that pushes the ear piece OUT of my ear, and makes the whole thing feel like a very flimsy, loose fit. With the Jabra, it feels very much the same as my Plantronics 650 used to feel...except with all that great noise cancellation!

Very, very interesting. I love my Jawbone, but have had it for 6 weeks now and still haven't made it fit perfectly. I bought the Jabra eargels the other day, and even tried them (by fluke; didn't read the suggestion) without the ear loop, and the fit was good. I didn't think it would work without the loop, so I didn't even try to make any calls. Now that I read this here, I'm giving it a whirl. The ear loop does the same thing for me: pulls the thing out of my ear canal.

Wow, I think I may have finally realized a solution.

Nonetheless, the Jawbone is worth every penny. I've been told numerous times by people on the other end that I sound "so clear." "Like a landline."
