    Aside from the Apple headset, what do you guys think is the best one for the iPhone?

    I have the H700. It worked OK for a while. Haven't used it in a month and I just started using it again and now it doesn't work as good as it did. I dunno why. Pretty strange.

    No one uses a headset with their iPhone?

    two problems:

    1) everyone on OT thinks bluetooth headsets are gay

    2) if you use a bluetooth headset, nobody sees that you have an iPhone

    realistically though, the only headsets I've had consistently good experiences with are the high end plantronics explorer series. I got a Sony-Ericsson in-ear model that I absolutely LOVED and then it started dropping its connection randomly in the middle of calls.

    I use a Jawbone but I've managed to break both ear loops that it came with for my right ear and lost a few of the ear pieces. Planning on getting this http://www.amazon.com/Jabra-1202-Ea...sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=wireless&qid=1212869399&sr=8-1
    to add on to my Jawbone.

    I'm one firmware revision behind but when using a iPhone with a headset its really annoying that when I want to let someone else use my phone but not the headset you have to hit "iPhone" on the screen after the call is connected to keep the phone from using the headset.

    There's a new Jawbone out now that's a bit slimmer and lighter than the original.

    I agree with both.... I have a BT headset and never use it.

    I just want it for driving. I drive a lot and hate holding the phone.

    I currently have the Motorola H700 but it starting working really badly with the phone. Dunno why. So now I want something different.
