Me, I just wait for some $9 deal to flit by on Woot. Then I don’t care if I lose it, break it, or if it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles.

(Problem is, the $9 BT headsets I end up getting last for frickin’ ever, never break, have great battery life… oh, and are little uglier than most… but hey, anything in your ear isn’t exactly attractive anyway.)

I personally love the Jawbone, but I also use the Apple one, only because it is really small, has an insane battery life, I can use it while it is plugged in, and I can charge it on the same base station I sync my iPhone.
My friend swears by the Logictec one, that looks like the future, it retails for 120$, I think it is their most expensive headset.

Having been in a work situation where I had Bluetooth headsets thrown at me by all of the manufactures, I have tried about just about all of them. Bar none, the best I have used is the Plantronics 510e. I disliked the way the Jawbone fit on my ear, and the functionality was confusion. Not to mention it was expensive.

The battery life on the Plantronics is epic, and it can pair with multiple devices at once (handy if you use the sweet headset lifter like I do). I also like the fact that the Plantronics is big, and feels substantial on my ear, the echo and wind noise canceler is also top notch. Did I mention its cheap? You can get it on amazon for like $45.
