    I can't seem to find a good headset that works RELIABLY with my BB, and can overcome the road noise from my car. Who has a bluetooth they love, and why?

    I used it for a couple of weeks. I liked it very much and it worked just fine but I found that my preference was a headset so I returned it. Pretty popular product.

    I'm using a Plantronics 655 and it seems to work well and has plenty of volume while driving as long as the windows are not rolled down in heavy traffic.

    So I went out and got the Partot Minikit this morning at Best Buy. They had it on sale for $34.99. I just got back from taking it on a test run and it works really well. It is not as nice as using the bluetooth through my wife's BMW but it does the job fairly well for the price. She said I was much clearer than on my Motorola H500. The call was very clear and she did not hear any background noise. I liked it because the volume was much better than the Motorola.

    leftcoaster - The Minikit is not a headset. It clamps to the visor of the car and sits there like a garage door opener. If you are looking for something for just the car give it a shot.

    Thankye, snookie! Here's my question, though: Can it overcome road noise? For some reason, I'm stuck on the idea that I have to have an actual in-ear device in order to hear the caller better. Correct me if I'm wrong ...

    I had no trouble at all talking to my wife on the road tonight. I talked to her going 35 mph on city streets and then 65-70 on the hwy. There was no difference. I would think that the car you drive would also have some impact on road noise depending on how well the outside noise gets into the car.

    I've been reading up on it and you're right: It depends on the car. And that's what led me to post the inquiry in the first place. I have a LOT of road noise. I think I'll zero in on some high-end bluetoothies

    Good luck. Post what you end up with in case the Parrot does not work out for me in the end.

    I sure will. I had the Jawbone II and loved it, but all of a sudden I couldn't get it to work with my Curve. My friend had the same problem, so I don't think it's just me. If you can get it going with yours, give it a try. It's the most unobtrusive bluetooth I've ever used; it has multiple ear hooks for comfort adjustment and the noise cancellation feature was really quite good.
