    Got any recomendations? Comments? Info? I got a new phone, and want one of the little ear thingies for it. I won't be using it much, just occasionally.

    I dont have one of these but one of the girls at work does and she can't say enough good things about it.

    The bluetooth earpiece is made by "jabra" and her cell phone service is with verizon.

    I was talking with a GT'er about this....he has two BT headsets...both motorola. One of them he bought at the cellphone store. The other he bought off ebay. The one off ebay is in foregin packaging and is a lot louder.

    Wife has one also....everybody swears by them. Getting rid of the cords is a big deal.

    I have a Motorola H700. It gets loud enough to use in the car and I get probably about a 20-25 range from my phone. I don't have problems with static and nobody's complained about echo yet. It's quite tiny as well.

    I got me one of these:

    It's a Logitech Mobile Freedom Bluetooth headset. It's unobtrusive, sounds a lot better than I expected, it's easy to use, and it works great with my Verizon Wireless Motorola E815 phone.

    I'm using Jabra 250. Found it good in terms of reception and/or clarity. The negative side is the blue tooth connection, where I have to redo the config once in a while (quarterly-on the average). And sometimes one press on the answer button doesnt communicate with the phone at once. However, mine is already more than three years old, I dont know if the late releases has a better make.

    It would be nice to see a BT headset that didnt get in the way of your eyeglasses/sunglasses.

    I wear glasses and I don't have a problem with my headset.

    OK, that sounded a bit snippy. I mean, the H700 I use doesn't get in the way of my glasses.
