So I just went out and picked a Plantronics ML20 bluetooth headset for being on the road, because lets face it the fines you can get now are just not worth it. I picked the ML20 because of the price point and the reviews were great. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or recommendations for ones you might use. I was looking at the Plantronics Voyager but I couldn't shell out the $100 for one just yet. Has anyone ever used the Voyager and if so what did you think of it? I'm curious to see what people have to say about these.

I have the Blueparrott B-250 XT and it works great. It has a long standby time which I like. It is very clear both ways. The major truckstops run them on sale all the time. Just gotta catch it right. I paid 109.00 and got a 20 dollar rebate.

I had the plantronics Voyager and took it back and now have the Blue Parrot. I love my new one, the plantronics was horrible.

Can you give any more insight on what was "horrible" about it?

Sound Good ! but last week i buy Oxi Bluetooth Over The Head Headset Noise Canceling Flexible Boom Microphone for all Cellphones and Iphones from http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G3FZ7YU and believe me this headset is really good, great sound and backup, since i am a truck driver so i need this type of headset who have great backup even when i am in long trip.

I couldn't see spending upwards of $100 for a bt headset and set out to search the internet for something better for less and I was rewarded. First off though let me suggest that whatever you end up choosing make sure it gas noise canceling. It makes a world of difference to those on the other end of the line. Without it the bt mic will try to amplify every little sound making it nearly impossible for anyone to hear Nd or understand you. I ended up going to best buy and purchased a kinovo bt headset. It wears over the ears as opposed to over the head but is lightweight so as not to cause discomfort. Reception is excellent and the mic is built into the ear piece no so mic out in front of your face. As a comparison, my instructor had both a blue parrot and a plantronics and both worked well. His cheapest one was like 80$ on sale and the ear pad foam was worn. My kinovo works just as well if. It better has better ear lads and it only cost me like $35. Honestly my only regret is I didn't get one for my wife.

T/A is selling a discontinued Blue Parrot Xpress (not headset) model for 59.99 while supplies last. I have no complaints about it other than the fact the first one I bought didn't work. T/A happily exchanged it. Dunno about the battery but it sounds way better than my phone on both ends and I hardly know it's there when wearing it. Have to remember not to sleep with it on.

I have the plantronics voyager. It works very well. The downside, the battery runs out with about six hours of use. It is not comfortable to wear long periods of time. I plan on getting one of the over the head style ones in the next month or two.
