    Any members on here recommend a good Bluetooth headset for calls?
    Or if not, is there a good website on the web for these reviews? I know some review sites have major bias opinions.

    I don't generally keep track of review sites. I generally just check out what I feel is a good number of reviews to prevent a single site's bias from being a problem.

    As for C|Net, YMMV but I've never found their reviews to be useful to me.

    The only 2 that are truly competing with each other seem to be The Jawbone Icon (or Jawbone Prime) and the BlueAnt Q1.

    Nobody mentioned the Blue Ant Q1. It's one of the few handsfree headsets that work with the Droid, excellent quality, great customer service and you can get firmware updates on line.

    bluetooth headset

    Don't know what's brand of your phone, so can't find a right bluetooth headset for you. You can search it on ebay, may be you will find a nice headset. (My bluetooth headset was purchased on ebay), i am satisifed with the quality and price . :icon_ banana:

    I own over half a dozen Bluetooth headsets (Jabra,Plantronics,Motorola, Jawbone, Samsung). My favorite is the Motorola H710. Its loud, clear, rugged, easy to use, good battery life and very secure on your ear. Your mileage may vary..

    I have tried many BT headsets from >$100 to < $20. They all have their pluses and minuses. For me I ended up with a Plantronics 510 or 520 series as it offered the noise reduction, clear sound (receiving and sending) and excellent battery life. It is a bulky headset that sits on the ear and is not glamorous as all but for driving in my loud Jeep Wrangler or with the sunroof open I found nothing beats it.

    Hi everyone
    I have a s-69 bluetooth stereo headset and i wanna connect it to my lap top ,on which WIN 7 is installed. When i search the device on my laptop, the bluetooth device can find bluetooth stereo headset but device manager requests the driver. However, when i bought bluetooth stereo headset no driver was included. I tried to set up a driver for bluetooth stereo headset from windows 7 driver default, but it didn't connect to my laptop and it didn't work. Anyone can help me?
    Thank you
