Bluetooth headset recomendations?

Real Estate Agent with Treanor Real Estate

What is everyone using for their blue-tooth headsets?  I had the original Motorola headset but I hated it. Old Motorola headsetMy ears were too small for it and the reception wasn't that good.  I never used it and it sat in a box.



Finally after a few years I decided to get another headset.  I got the Plantronics 520 and it worked great.  Plantronics 520The only unfortunate part is that after 2 weeks I forgot to take it out of my pants pocket and it went through the wash.  Needless to say I needed to get another one.


While at Costco a few days later I saw the Plantronics 220 for only $30 (the 520 was about $80). Plantronics 220I have been using it for a few weeks now and I really can tell the difference in price.  There is a lot of static when talking on a call and people say I sound funny when using it.  Even plugging it into the charger isn't as nice as the 520 model. 


Now I find myself in the market yet again for a blue-tooth headset.  I really don't want to spent another $80 if I don't have to.  Does anyone have any good recommendations for a decent priced blue-tooth headset?

all I can say is test them first... I bought a nice Motorola version, and find now that it is not loud enough for me... ouch... struggling to hear was not my reason to buy this thing...

It simply does not get loud enough for me...

perhaps I need the Bionic Ear or something...

I used a Motorola for a while and hated it. I haven't tried another option since. Best of luck in finding the right one for you.

We sell the Voyager 520 for about $41 on http://Bluetruth.com.  We have a few headsets under $50, but I think the 520 has the best sound.  We have audio tests on all our products, so you can hear what just what they sound like.  :)

Good luck, I'm sorry you washed your last one.
