Default Bluetooth Headset...Need your advice please

I'm on the phone all day while driving from here to there at work. And now I'm driving a 2008 Dodge Sprinter van...stinking big ol van is pretty cumbersome when trying to navigate though busy traffic.

So what do you guys use for bluetooth headsets? What do you recommend?

I plan on spending around $40 to $60 for one...

Thanks again for your input.

And NO I don't want to do this ear mod!!


Todd

Thanks!

I have a Motorola H3, it is good for the price. People complain I sound quiet but then again I talk quiet most of the time. I would recommend finding something with a fold out mic that gets it a little closer to your mouth, those seem to work well.

Todd...this is the one I use for work. It'* probably more than you want to spend, but its got great sound, noise canceling mic and those at the other end of my phone calls say it sounds great.

sound quality on the other end is great both them hearing me and me hearing them. the jawbones are nice but the talk time is only 4 hours. mine outlasts my phone which has 6 hours talk time. the headset has about 9 hours of talk time and 5 day stand by
