Hello all! Was just curious as to which blue tooth headsets y'all recommend? I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a blue parrot headset.

I have the BlueParrott b450-xt. It's pricey but Iike it. Great sound quality, pretty comfy to wear and I never heard any complaints about the mic. Battery lasts forever. Only thing I dislike is it doesn't have an auto shutoff when I disconnect Bluetooth and I forget to turn the headset off.

You might want to hold off until you get your truck and see if it has a Bluetooth system in it already. A lot of the new trucks have them built in.

I have a Blue Parrot 250XT+. I've had it for a few years, bought it refurbished off of Walmart's site. People hear me fine and I hear them fine. It has 21 hour talk time and came with a wall and car charger. Both have long cables, so I can use it while it's charging. I love this headset and will eventually upgrade to a newer Blue Parrot.

Most drivers I know have a version of the Blue Parrot. I've had mine over 2 years and still works great. Noise cancelling is top shelf. Worth every penny imho.

I like the ones that go around your neck. Easier for us Schneiders to hide and throw across the cab if need be.

I have th blue parrot 450 as well. I like out a lot. I had the 350 before but the headband broke on it. The 450's construction is a little sturdier

I have had both the Blue Parrot and the Blue Tiger. I liked the Blue Tiger better for a couple reason. 1.) the parrot wouldnt play the music from my phone...it was talk only, no media. 2.) it wasnt as sturdy as the Blue Tiger. The Tiger fits over my ear better with a better cushion. I accidentally ripped the whole ear piece off the parrot :(

The blue parrot 450 plays music from the phone. It is also constructed more like the blue tiger than previous blue parrots. I've never used a blue tiger so I can't speak to their quality.

I've had both a Blue Tiger and a Blue Parrot. The blue tiger was great but it hurt my head/ear (side opposite the ear piece cut into my head.. just couldn't adjust it small enough) so I gave it to my other half when his finally broke.

I love my blue parrot. The headband is thinner and more flexible and I can actually stand to wear it for a whole shift of driving. It has 21 hours of talk time and goes on standby forever.
