    With the exception of some recent Macs, I'm a tech introvert; I haven't carried a cell phone in over 5 years. As a consequence of such, I've never used a bluetooth headset. Ever. I suppose if I were to use a phone possibly I would have researched the subject at greater length, but as of now, my searching on the forums and on google haven't turned up much worthwhile information.

    I'm curious if there is a bluetooth headset out there that will work natively with the MacBookPro's bluetooth radio, and hopefully by extension, the mac pro's too. I would be using it for Skype or maybe iChat, so the mic is as important as the audio-in; I'm rather indifferent if it is stereo or is good for listening to music as my main concern, other than functioning at all, is portability.

    I've read stories about pairing and passcodes but in all honesty my extent with bluetooth ends at keyboards and mice. Anyone have a headset they can recommend?

    The Plantronics Voyager 510 apparently has no troubles pairing to a MacBook (see Customer Discussions) and can be used with Skype. Anyone use this one?

    The best proof yet than the Plantronics Voyager 510 pairs with the MBP (unless he's hiding a cell phone somewhere) :confused:
    Edit: On second look, that looks more like a powerbook than a MBP... Hmmm.
