Mike,

Kearsey uses the BlueParrott B450-XT Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headset, which is what I plan to get.

I recently got the latest Blue Parrot B550xt. It's virtually the same as my old 450. I only upgraded because my old one broke.

Side note: they don't hold up well when thrown across a room. Who knew?

Have a 250, a 35 & a 450.

Like the 450 best, though the 250 was a lot lighter.

Not driving a truck, but I can do calls in my slingshot at 80MPH on the interstate , and people say it's like I was sitting in the room next to them.

May get a 550, as the battery in my 450 is getting wonky - and I haven't called to see if there is an "official replacement battery" for it (they had them for the 250/350 - though there are "reportedly compatible batteries" on Ebay).

A lot of people like the Plantronics offerings also - we use them in the law office environments I do IT for.

Personally I cant stand the big headsets most drivers use. Instead I prefer the neckband with earbuds similiar to This. I had a pair that lasted me over a year and a half doing foodservice delivery even in the rain. My wife said she often couldn't hear the noise of the truck either. I believe it cost $40 at Walmart.

I have something similar to these. I have the LG brand and they have been flawless. I absolutely love them. The are kind of discreet and I don't have to look silly when I forget to take a bulky headset off and walk inside a store or something. The sound quality is good and everyone says they hear me really good.

Ok rookie to be here. What do you use the headset for? Music, phone calls? Only asking because I've read in some of the posts he's that companies don't like you on the phone when driving. I know I don't like taking on the phone while driving, it's too distracting.

More so, thought that any kind of ear speakers were illegal because they potentially obstructed sounds a driver need be alert to - i.e. horns.... safety issue.
