Currently looking for a good Bluetooth Headset that can be used with laptop, iPod Touch/iPhone and or cellphone...  Have had a nosy online and come up with a shortlist of the Motorola S305, the sony DR-BT21G and finally the JayBird Sportsband.

S305

Sony DR-BT21G  (i know its an archived model, also know they have just received stock)

Jaybird Sportsband

Just wondering if anyone has an opinion as to which is best by quality of sound, construction, battery lifetime, pairing ability (i.e. any noted problems).  

I will be using this at the gym (main purpose), and wanting to ensure they are durable...


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Have a look at one of these, you can use whatever headphones you like, or plug it into your stereo etc, I use it at the gym as its small and can just be clipped onto my collar.

cheers, although these would be perfect for the gym, and other sports, i was hoping to get a set that had a microphone (despite picking up ambient sound) in the headset
