Can anyone suggest a good bt headset to use with my Nexus 5? Mainly to listen to music and phone calls while cycling. (yes I pull over and stop before answering a call)
The ability to here so messages would be a bonus but I guess there is an app for that :-)

 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

I've got plantronics back beat 901 plus from memory. Work very well. You can use driving mode to read your texts and Callerid out.

I like my Sennheiser mm100. They can read my WP8 SMS's to me. No idea how they'd go cycling though.

I've got the Plantronics backbeat go. Good for about 4 hours and sweat proof. I use them at work.
