I have 2 pair of the Altec Lansing Backbeat 906's. For me they are awesome, as i can wear them all day long listing to music, and make and receive calls with out taking them off. And when im listing to music and someone next to me start talking to me i dont have to take them off, i push one buttom and they go into open mic, so the mics transfers the audio to the speakers. They also incorporate Plantronics dual-mic AudioIQ technology. The only problem i do have is battery life, only last 7 hours playing music, but thats why i bought 2 pairs.
Oh i forgot to say that when your on a call you hear the person in both ears not just in one.

I've used several over the years with different phones etc. I almost use the headset so I can be handsfree to do other things.
My current favorite and best I've had is the Jawbone Prime. Voice quality is very good and noise reduction is very effective and transparent to the person you are talking too. Battery life is not good though. Maybe 2 hours?
I also have a Plantronics 520 Explorer it sounds good and battery lasts a long tome but it's not good in noisy areas.

I am using my first gen Motorola S9's with the 3GS. The Moto's sound great, have a strong connection with the 3GS and overall the combo works well. The only thing I miss is the AVCRP commands which (hopefully) Apple adds in a subsequent update.

No: because there isn't any good water/sweat proof A2DP set. The only one guaranteeing this is the Jaybird, which is not the most comfortable design ot has the best sound quality. I like that it is over-the-ear, though.
Motorola S9 is not truly waterproof. and it is uncomfortable (try resting your head on a pillow or car headrest).

I always use my BT. Top three reasons - I don't like holding my iPhone up to my ear, my ear gets hot, my screen protector gets greasy.
I only wear my my Jabra BT500 when I'm on the phone, in my opinion people look ridiculous when they wear it non stop, but whatever to each their own.

I use the BlueAnt V1 so this little thing speaks to me when calls come in. I'll take it off and leave it in the car when entering a store but when I put it back on all I have to say is "am I connected" and it connects me right back to my phone. I will admit though that somehow it seems to work better on my wife's Motorola RazR2 but I dig the fit and overall package of the BlueAnt.
