I bought a plantronics headset yesterday and after I got it set up, I discovered one app (MyHeadset) touted on the packaging is not available in the Android market on the droid (and when I use the web I click through 3-4 security warnings and then it crashes my phone), and the other costs $25/year (that fact not mentioned on the packaging touting the features). So I'm taking it back. What should I get instead?
I want to be able to talk while taking notes, listen to streaming radio, and not constantly have my fat-little-cheeks accidentally pushing buttons while I'm talking. Also having more than 5 hours of talk time per headset charge would be nice. I will use it mostly inside, and think voice commands would be super-spiffy (so I can use it while doing messy or busy things with my hands like grouting or cooking or knitting or gluing stuff to other stuff). I also have smallish ear canals, so headsets that come with different-sized inserts would be great!
I got sucked into the plantronics headset because I thought I could verbally twitter and facebook and email while on an epic roadtrip and terrorize my minions far more in the future. This is not a requirement, just a whim, but it's not a whim worth $20 more than the next model and $25/year.
So, please advise. What should I get? (I have read the previous related AskMes, but I'm hoping there's something newer and super-cool that I don't know about...)
