Default Bluetooth Headsets - Which is best?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm looking for a Bluetooth headset for my BlackBerry and think I've narrowed it down to two. The two I'm looking at are the BlackBerry Original Blackberry Bluetooth Headset HS-500 - BlackBerry Bluetooth Headsets & Mobile Phone Accessories and the BlackBerry Original BlackBerry HS-655+ Bluetooth Headset. What I would like to know is, which of these is the best? I've heard different reviews from different people, but I just can't make up my mind on which one to get, or if there is a better one out on the market please let me know.

Thanks

Best is really up to you and how they work for you. Not really a queston that another can answer.

Go ahead, make a decision. Tahe a leap and try it.

I have had pretty good luck with the Moto 500 and HS 710 and Jabra Bt-250v, but my hearing isn't that great.

I have the Jawbone, Palatronics 925 and the Jabra BT530 in my rotation. Price to feature ratio, I would have to choose the BT530 over the others ($35-$45 on Amazon).

Like Dubdub said above, it comes down to preference, much like fashion and phones.

Think I'm going to go for the HS-500 as I prefer the look of that to the HS-655+, and what's the point of getting something if you're not that keen on it???! I'll keep you all posted on how I get on with my new headset, and whether it's any good. Fingers crossed!!

I just got a Jabra Extreme and really like it. It works with my work BB and personal cell at the same time which is very convenient.

The reviews seem to say Plantronics Pro is the best if you don't mind huge/ugly, after that the Jawbone seems to get good marks but it also has a lot of pissed off customers from parts breakage and weird quality issues.

I am not sure the Extreme has those features. You would be best checking their web site.

Thanks
