bluetooth ear pieces

I have a motorola bluetooth ear piece that is at least 3 years old. It is falling apart and the battery is not holding much of a charge. Looking to get something newer.

What are the best ones now? I know some have noise cancellation. Looking to spend under $125.

The Jawbone has noise cancellation, but I don't like it. I can't get it to fit quite right and it always feels like it going to fall off, and the I've broken two of the replaceable metal earpiece things.

I've gone back to my Moto H800, which I like alot. Theres a new motorola with noise cancellation, IIRC

After trying a bunch of different Motorola headsets I went with a Scala 500. It's not a big company but their headset is very reliable. It works very well, easy to hear, and pretty tough. I've dropped mine a few times and it still works.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I've got a Moto H700, only used a few hours. Works fine, but the voice dialing sucks arse. Not really into the headset thing (it hurts my ear, but i use it since it was a gift), i'd rather use the speaker. Oh yeah, that blue light blinking annoys the hell out of me and my passengers so i usually tuck it underneath my skully.

Jammin gave me a Motorola head set for x-mas....I can't remember the model number...works well, I have no complaints. I don't walk around with it on, looking like a dork....just in the car, it's a great help because I drive a stick. But in reality I hate taking calls in the car.

Amen. They have been in the headset/earpiece business for around two decades and know their shit when it comes to comfort and usability. This is why most businesses use them.

I actually use the Plantronics TriStar wired headset.

My wife uses the voyager 510

I'm with you, I like the old-school wired.

I use the Motorola H700. Not a bad piece but I can't wear it too long as it hurts my ear. In the end I still prefer the old wired ear pieces like Jack Bauer uses.

Ah, so it's the earpiece and not my ear that's causing it to hurt. Do you have problems with the voice recognition?

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

No I don't. Sprint has excellent voice recognition.
