For the love of God and your children, if you are going to drive and talk on the phone – PLEASE use a bluetooth headset or handsfree device. And when you use a bluetooth headset, please refrain from wearing in Target wondering around the aisles looking like a crazy person who talks to yourself because no one can see your headset. OR if you are in a crowded environment, say a conference, refrain from using your bluetooth headset as people think you are talking to THEM. Do you know how many times I have felt like such a dork responding to someone who was really just wearing a bluetooth and was on the phone?
Anyways, the fact of the matter is, if you are going to buy a bluetooth headset, you will want a good one. These little devices can get pricey. No use spending money on something not worth it.
Here is a round up of the best bluetooth headsets based on reviews. People don’t lie.

Bose Bluetooth Headset

With this device, you can choose from 3 ways to wear your head set: on your ear, in-ear with an earhook or in-ear without a hook.
