    I think "HEADSET" was the missing word, my friends. ;)

    I have a Jabra BT220. I got it mmm... three or four years ago? The wirelessness was ace. And the sound quality was fairly good. The biggest problem with it was that the battery life was too unpredictable. I couldn't trust that it would be available when I needed it. So I eventually got sick of pulling it out and having it be dead, and left it in a box somewhere. I used it solidly for maybe... six months? I dunno. Maybe I should get a new battery for it.

    Other than the battery issue, they're wonderful devices.

    i have the HS850. i can definitely recommend it, great quality, and very easy to use; you just flip it open to turn it on, flip it closed to turn it off. ;)

    I have the H700 - works great - excellent sound quality.

    Only problem I've had is syncing with my iMac. It is intermittent, so can't use it with skype. I don't know if it's because of the way the headset works or what, but I can't use it with skype unfortunately.

    I have a few bluetooth items and I've found them to be somewhat cumbersome to use. My Logitech DiNovo bluetooth setup on my PC is crap. The bluetooth connection between my Sony Ericsson S710a is ok, but somewhat slow. I haven't needed a headset yet, but my wife uses one with her Motorola phone and she's quite pleased with it.

    i've owned it since december. as for the battery life, i usually charge it about once a week, but the truth is, i don't think it needs to be charged that often, i just do it anyways. :eek: so yea, battery life is good ;)

    I just ordered the HS850 myself. Two of my friends have the 810 and they love it. So, while I haven't had the chance to use it myself, I have looked at reviews online for the 850 and they seem to be pretty positive, and, coupled with my friends' endorsement of the line, I can't wait for the 850 to get here!
