Hello all

I was thinking of getting a Macbook Air and because I do alot of voice dictation I wanted to get a wireless headset that took advantage of the bluetooth in the MBA.

After doing some searching I have had no luck.

How hard can it be to get the following.
*Bluetooth
* Stereo
* with a mic

I have found this which would be great but it looks like it's not over bluetooth and requires me to use up the USB port which defeats the point of having bluetooth in the Macbook.

Has anyone here tried to find a solution to this, im sure im not the only one.

Here is the Logitech headset that would have been perfect.

Motorola S9HD also might work but the mic probably won't suite your needs for dictation.

I found BT to be testy, not as good of an experience that I wanted.

I have a Motorola bluetooth headset that I purchased to use with my iphone and it works with my Mac mini too. Have you looked at the apple store for any options?

Thank you for your quick responses.

I have had a look at the Apple store and even called them up but with little luck.

I have searched the Motorola site but they all seam a little insufficient and not up to the required quality for the voice recording.

Creative doesn't do anything. I have also looked at Sony, Logitech (who I thought would be the most likely) and Plantronics nearly had a good contender.

Oh dear.
