    I saw a thread mentioning that the Motorola S805 works relatively well with the iMac, but I'm wondering if these will work with my iPhone as well? I couldn't find any definitive answers about it.

    Basically, I'm looking for the best possible BT headphone/mic combo (preferably a full headset that covers the whole ear like the S805) that will work for the iMac. And if it works for the iPhone too, that'd be great.

    I'm a stickler for quality of sound. Static tends to bother me significantly, but I just want to find whatever works best and if that means I'll have to deal with a little bit of static, then so be it.

    Any suggestions? Personal reviews? Thanks in advance... :confused:

    I'll let you know in about 2 1/2 hours. I just got mine today and I'm waiting for the battery to charge. I got the system that works with the headphones or can hook into my Giro ski helmet pads. Hopefully all is well...

    The Iphone doesn't have A2DP (yet) but there is a way to make it work, but it sounds crappy.

    I was ready to send the headphones back until I hardwired it to the iphone (with the supplied adapter wire) and it sounded so good, I will either wait for the iphone to be upgraded, buy the A2DP adapter that plugs into the iphone or any ipod or just leave it hardwired when I ski for now.

    There's a company online (8bananas.com) that sells a decent one for $75, but it comes from some place like New Zealand and shipping is another $30. I'll check around for online before I decide if I get it right away.

    Is it worth it? It does sound very good and I will use it when I travel, ski and work in the garage. So, yes!

    BTW here's the instructions for making it work on the iphone currently:

    iPhone 8GB Unlocked using 1.1.1
    Nokia BH-503 / JABRA BT150
    Also working with 1.0.2

    Method:

    1. Pair your headset, make a test call to see if it works. End the call normally.
    2. Dial *#307#, press call.
    3. Press the answer button twice with 2 seconds delay in your bluetooth headset (If you don\\\'t do this correctly, you will continue to listen the ringtone in headset)
    4. Press answer on iPhone.
    5. Press the home button, do NOT end the call.
    6. Open iPod and play a song, you won\\\'t get sound from iPhone, nor headset.
    7. Once it is playing, press the home button.
    8. Open phone.
    9. Dial 0, press Call.
    10. It will ring again, answer.
    11. Press audio source, select your headset.
    12. Press home button, do NOT end call. (we\\\'re almost there)
    13. Open iPod and play anything you like.

    Shorter Way:

    1. *#307# Dial, press the bluetooth headset button twice.
    2. Answer on iPhone, press source.
    3. Select bluetooth headset.
    4. Press home button, open iPod, play anything.

    Now, you will get iPod playing through your bluetooth headset.

    Cons:
    - MAY not receive calls ( u can answer directly to ur phone)
