I have always used Plantronics ones without any problems.  Prefer the over-ear hook variety if your moving around a lot.  I admit however I haven't tried any other brands, saw no reason to change.  Normally get 2 - 3 years use before the batteries start getting lazy.

Jabra Supreme or Jabra Motion should do the trick. Make sure whatever you pick is HD-Voice capable (these are).




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Do you have aux in on your stereo?

I use Kinivo BTC450 plus a logitech +drive which is awesome, it is virtually as good as a built in system.

Plus let's you stream audio to head unit in apt-x (assuming your phone can handle)

4 years ago I put in a Pioneer headunit with built in Bluetooth with a remote mic.  Paid $500 for the unit at the time.  Mrs says its the best she's heard.  Works beautifully.  I believe it uses the premium Parrot bluetooth module.

Bought what I thought was a Sony equivalent for $200 a few months back.  It's crap by comparison.
