    They seriously need to update the bluetooth capabilities of the iphone.

    i have a tendency to lose things, and after losing one jawbone, two motorola h500s, i have settled on a low cost - well performing device: the jabra bt125. i like that it has a bendable earhook - a HUGE bonus since we all have different ear shapes. also, i have found it on amazon for ~20-40. i first got it at a walgreen's for 40. the sound is as good as any other headset i've tried, and the battery is pretty good (8 hours talk, i think). i've used it on three different phones (a razr, treo and now, iphone). works like it should.

    I don't know if it's the best, but I'll say this. I tried one of the cheap (lowest end) Motorola ones and I just couldn't do it. People couldn't understand me, said it was noisy, said I sound 'distant' and like I'm on a speakerphone.

    It was crap.

    So, then we tried a Jawbone. It was amazing. It worked. I could hear. People couldn't tell I was on a bluetooth headset. The noise cancelling WORKS. I tested it myself with my wife using the jawbone, she went on the freeway and rolled down the windows, clicked it on and *boom* it was quiet.

    I couldn't tell she was in a car at all.

    I have to admit I thought the Jawbone was overpriced gimmicky garbage, but nwo that I've tried it I'm a convert. It's an awesome headset.

    Now, are there other ones that are just as good? I don't know. I've only tried the worst, and the Jawbone.

    But, I'm getting another Jawbone, my wife stole mine.

    I don't think so. As far as I am aware you can't stream music over Bluetooth and into a headset.
