    I've used quite a few and none of them ever had Voice Control, which I just can't understand. You had to dial manually and then talk via the headset. Or use VC from the phone, which isn't safe while driving.

    I'm hoping Apple has FINALLY allowed VC from the headset because I'm in the market for a new one. Can someone please tell me:

    1.) Are there any out there that can use VC from the headset?
    2.) If so, what do you recommend?

    It's a Xmas present to myself, so I don't mind splurging. Thank you

    Not one person has a headset that does this?

    Can someone tell me if its even possible to use Voice Control with a iPhone and BT headset?

    I've had an Aliph Icon for a year now. It works great with voice control. It also displays it's own battery level on the iPhone screen right next to the iPhone battery meter. It's got very effective noise cancellation and OK wind suppression. The battery life is about 4 hours of talk time and much more on standby. There's a one button control for answering or ending calls or activating voice control. You control volume with the iPhone volume buttons. It's pretty well integrated with the iPhone. It's not that expensive either. I think list price is $99 but you can find it for less.

    I've had both a Plantronics Voyager and Jawbone that work with VC and I definitely prefer the Plantronics. The Jawbone is over priced and okay at best. The Plantronics is crazy loud and has great battery life. The newer ones also have great noise cancellation.
