Hi people! Another day, another petition.

Can someone recommend me a bluetooth headset that is comfortable to wear, has a fast turn on/off switch, and doesn't mess badly with calls?

Battery is not a problem since I won't be doing long road trips.

I thought of purchasing this:

Plantronics M50

What do you think about it?

Thanks :p

If you want a good one that will last you forever and not break. DEFINITELY get the Jawbone Era. I have purchased 8 different Bluetooth headsets over the past couple of years, including the M50 and none of them compare to the Era. I LOVE that I can listen to my podcasts/music through it while I am walking around as well as all the extra features it has. I definitely recommend it. Its normal $129, but I got mine for $50 because our local Office Depot was moving and had a special, I see them dirt cheap on Amazon as well

Jawbone Era, but the Plantronics M1100 handles wind noise better.

Plantronics headsets are good. Had mine (Voyager Pro HD) for 2 years and it's been stepped on, fell in some food, thrown across the room, and fell on the road quite a few times and still works ok.

Hello,

"Battery is not a problem since I won't be doing long road trips."

This is for knowledge but in your country is it legal or illegal to wear a headset/earphone while driving?

Thank you

is it for gaming?

 

If yes I would throw in for consideration, the Logitech cordless vantage, it doesn't fit to the ear, so for me at least it doesn't hurt after an hour to wear
