I bought the newegg $18 WEP870 deal listed here. I can pair the headset with my phone fine (it pairs w/o needing to enter a code). In phone mode I can start a call, and it works fine for 3-5 seconds, but the sound degenerates into static very quickly. I realized I have to hold the phone < 6" from the headset for it to work! Any further and the static begins and it disconnects from the phone not long after. Now, I can pair the same WEP870 w/ my ipod touch and/or laptop and it works 20-30ft away. Also, my droid has worked great paired via headset profile to my car... I did try pairing my droid to my laptop with the laptop being a 'headset' and could not get it to work. Does this mean my droid has some kind of signal strength problem? Anything I could try? I can't see how it could be the headset... Music pairing says it connects but it never has worked (just some slight pops from the headset and it then disconnects).
