Default Wired headset - Need advice

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
I'm looking to get a wired headset. I'm not interested in bluetooth devices yet. If I can't find a good wired one, maybe that's the route I'll go. Anyway, I have a 8300 and am currently considering the ETYxxx8226;COMxxx8482; Handsfree Mobile Phone Headset located here (Etymotic Research, Inc. - ETY-COM Instructions). It doesn't specifically say that it works with BBs, but I've seen others on this forum talking about them. It also has a 2.5mm plug, where my curve has a 3.5mm one. Does it come with or can I easily get an adapter? There is also talk that regular 2.5 to 3.5mm adapters won't work.

Can anyone help with other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

LOL.
But it looks like I might have to go BlueTooth, as I'm seeing no other options. The standard 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapters won't work, and nobody has a wired headset that specifically works with the curve. Oh well...

I didn't think I would ever use a wired headset until I noticed how clear the calls were on them. While my Motorola H700does a good enough job, the wired headset that came with my 8700g is amazing. People don't even know I am on a wireless phone.

Thank you, but I should have specified that I'm looking for one with a boom style mic, not an in-line one like this. I got one like this with the phone and while it works fine, it's not that comfortable and people have trouble hearing me on it.
