Bluetooth headset help needed.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I want to get my wife a Bluetooth headset for her iPhone this Christmas. Her car doesn't have Bluetooth and the crappy speaker thing she bought doesn't work so well. What are some good ones to look at?

 

Attributes I am looking for are:

 

  • Volume
  • Clarity
  • Good mic
  • Easy to use
  • Comfort!!!

I heard really good things about the MEElectronics wireless headsets.

Thank you Juan,

 

But I think headset might have been the wrong word. I'm not looking for stereo headphones. Just the little ear piece thing for her to use while driving.

Plantronics legend if she just wants overall best function. (Design could be an issue if she wears glasses.)

 

Jawbone era if she wants it to be sleek/slim. This also has the best noise cancelling feature out of them all. (Not the best at staying in your ea, so it will need adjustment from time to time.)

 

 

I've tried a lot of the higher end ones and here are some to avoid.

1. Bose: I forgot the exact name but I had the version 2 and while it is tiny and sounded great, it did not do well with ad2p and did not have the best noise cancelling. When it was windy, people had issue hearing me and if you are listening to music or podcast on it, it would turn off on you after so many minutes.

2. Motorola Elite Sliver: This thing is comfortable and sounded good and can have multiple devices attached. Everything was great until I used it outside with no real background noise. No one could hear me unless I was shouting and even then they had trouble understanding me. When used inside with no noise whatsoever, it worked fine. Also the start up is annoyingly long. When I turn it on when already on a call, it would say "power on, phone 1 connected, phone 2 connected" with delays in between each one and it would be a good 5 seconds before it started to transmit what the other person was saying.

 

 

I've used a lot more but these are my most recent experiences.

Thanks mc21,

 

She does wear glasses, especially while driving.

Plantronics discovery 975s and jawbone era are my suggestions then.
