Thank god for the TTY adapter!

Unfortunately people will have to choose between decent headphones, or the crap Apple ones with the microphone thingy...

The bluetooth headset comes with the dual dock and the rather nifty travel power adaptor (that you can plug the headset into), together those two are 'worth' $70. I'd be sorely tempted, after dropping all that money what's another $130?

Safari's spell checker doesn't recognise iPhone - someone didn't get the memo!

That thing is big and ugly. I hope I can use my tiny Motorola headset instead.

I thought the iPhone didn't have voice activated calling? Like, you couldn't say "Sarah Somebody" and it would start calling that person. So then, how does the bluetooth headset make phone calls? Maybe I am completely wrong.

$129 for a freaking bluetooth headset! I got mine for like not even 30 bucks and it's a pretty good one too. Hopefully it will be compatible with iPhone.

Far be it for anybody to actually read something before commenting, but the $129 headset price includes an iPhone Dual Dock ($49 separately) and iPhone Bluetooth Travel Cable ($29 separately).

We now return you to iPhone chaos. :D

A $30 BT headset is not a pretty good one.

Plus the Apple BT headset is really only $51 once you subtract the price of the dock and travel cable.

Then why can't they mark it up to 70 and sell it separately? Seriously, there are headsets (Nokia) that are like 120 for just the headset. This isn't THAT bad of a deal.:rolleyes:

You're right. But just looking at it, it appears to have the same design as a set of iPod headphones.

I'm very afraight of the same thing, it won't stay in or feel good to wear.

I sure hope not, the BT headset should be out in europe soon to, so that would be my first by towards the phone itself coming end of the year ;-).

Yeah honestly that doesn't look comfortable at all. Not super impressed with the design - they should have just licensed out Jawbone's design and put an Apple logo on it.

After having many, many bluetooth headsets, i will never in my life ever buy another "in the ear" headset. I have seriously went though jabras, motorolas, nokia's and by far the most comfortable is the motorola ones that are out of the eat, ie. the one I use now the H700.

When they stay in the ear too long it starts to hurt, even the Jabra one I had came with 3 different attachments to fit your ear, but still none were perfect, so that meant after 20 minutes of use, i started to feel straining in my ear, and for an hour drive to work every day it just wasnt worth it.

Stick to headsets that dont fit into the ear, just my advice.
