    Does anyone use a bluetooth headset (not earbud)? I'm just wondering which headset works the best, these things are pricey. Seems like a lot of the 5 star reviews are fake, I'd like to hear from someone who uses one.

    Two popular examples:

    VXI BlueParrott Roadwarrior B250-XT Bluetooth Wireless Headset
    Zelher P20

    Buy a radio with bluetooth. ABC Warehouse or someone comparable. Its cheaper than some bluetooths and works through your vehicle speakers.

    I love my Blue Parrot works well in noisy environments. I don't have to wind up the window or turn down the radio. I've used in the shop next to techs using impact tools without issue.

    The upper level plantronics are GREAT. They are close to $100 but well worth it. I think Best Buy has them. Two day battery life under "normal " conditions but I charge every night.

    I drive a tractor trailer and use a Blue Parrot and its the only thing I will use. It cancels out all noise except for your voice and you can hear perfect. I bought it in Feb on Bestbuy.com for $80. My wife tried it and bought her one the next week.

    Jaw Bone Hands down, I have the era and its great, uses military noise cancellation and it just flat out works. It also lets you control apps and other things with the headset.

    Does it have an ear bud (the piece that goes in your ear), or is it a headset style (sits outside the ear)?

    Which model? I think the new one has is a BT-250XT+, the reviews are mixed on which is better.

    Mine is BT-250XT. Absolutly no complaints about it. Not sure what the other model offers compared to this one.
