Bluetooth isolation headset?
February 26, 2007 1:07 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for recommendations for a bluetooth headset, with sound quality and noise isolation as primary concerns.

My car (an Acura RSX) has very poor sound isolation, to the point that hearing anything on the phone is difficult at freeway speeds. With that in mind, I'd like to find a bluetooth headset, preferably with an in-ear design, with high quality sound and isolation. Shure and etymotic make wired headsets that would probably be best really, but I just don't want to deal with the hassle of a cord. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

My Jabra BT250v does well with my somewhat road-noisy accord. I can talk at ~60mph without trouble - it just sounds a bit "rainy". Above that, and the road noise is both a problem for me and for the person at the other end.

we tested a bunch of different models at work, and found that we liked the Plantronics Discovery 655 best. It does a good job of blocking out the outside noise, especially at freeway speeds. The bud goes in your ear, and it comes with an optional around-the-ear attachment so it won't fall out. I've seen them on deals websites for around $65.

Thanks guys, I would have thought there'd be more choices but for some reason there are few if any truly in-ear models. I'll probably go with the plantronics, but that doesn't look like it goes into the ear canal the way shure or ety headphones do. Seems weird when there are so many such options for wired headsets and headphones.
