    I am in the midst of testing various ones. I have the Motorolla H700, but it disconnects often. Plus it's not pretty enough for my iPhone :p

    I'm trying the Jawbone and the Bang & Olufsen now.

    The Jawbone has noise blocking technology, but the buttons are confusing to me. I don't know when the noise blocker is on or off. There's no real indicator except to ask the person you're speaking with, "Did you hear that construction drill?" Plus, it's a little masculine-looking for me, a female. However, my mom thought I was indoors.

    The Bang & Olufsen cost almost half of what the darn iPhone itself costs, and unlike the jawbone, there aren't many reviews/sample YouTube videos on it. So I tested it myself and called my voicemail from the NY street. But I called on a Sunday (today) when it's not very loud out. However, the quality of voice was better. And like my mom w/the Jawbone, my friend didn't know I was outside with the Bang & Olufsen on!

    Which bluetooth do you prefer to use with your iPhone, and why?

    I bought the Jawbone along with my iPhone. Personally, I do like it but I am a guy. I agree about the buttons - they are confusing. I figured out the noise canceling makes an escalating noise when it's turning on and a descending noise when turning off. And you can leave it on all the time, it will remember what setting you left it at when you turn it off and on.

    I have the jawbone and really like it. Then again, I'm a guy and as such, have masculine design sensibilities.

    I've had mine for a few months and figured out that I really don't need to mess with the noise cancellation. Since NC is on automatically when you answer or place a call, if I don't mess with the buttons, I don't have to worry about its status. As for volume, I leave it maxed out and control the call volume via my phone.

    Hope this helps!
