    Any recommendation for a Bluetooth handset for Siri? I want to use it at home even. I want a really sleek and top end one.

    What's your budget? They range from $50 to $300. Motorola and LG have some cheaper ones that work perfectly fine for streaming music/controlling Siri over Bluetooth.

    Sorry, I meant Bluetooth earphones/headphones. I'd personally rather use one of those instead of a headset though. Bit more versatile.

    The Aliph Jawbone series is probably one of the best at any price. I've paid more for headsets by Plantronics that were utter crap. The Jawbones use noise cancellation technology that makes it pretty effective to use with Siri in all but the noisiest environments. Ew, I sound like a commercial... but seriously, I've gone through a number of headsets and I've been very happy with the Icon. There are a few other models they make, as well... but I didn't want to spend more than $100.

    I asked my brother how I sounded and he was surprised how when I'm not talking everything is dead quiet... probably owing to the way it cancels noise with a sensor against the cheek that activates/adjusts noise cancellation according to your jaw movements and sound input.

    If you can wait, I'd suggest holding off until they start releasing Bluetooth 4.0 ones for it. Should have longer battery life, in theory.

    I actually prefer not earphones because think about it let's say you are around the house an you want to send a text message you can just pick up the Bluetooth and start speaking
