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'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.
