I have a new Jawbone, but it doesn't fit on my ear very well (feels like it's about to fall off all the time unless I have my wool hat on in the winter) so I only use it while driving long distances. But it sure is handy in cases where I'm on the road and get a call--I definitely think it's safer to talk on a bluetooth headset, with both hands on the wheel and both eyes on the road, than without. I'm looking into a new bluetooth due to the ear fit thing, plus I do like the idea of being able to hear music through bluetooth. I may figure that out one day! Right now I'm looking at the Blueant or maybe the one chobbs1 or Alli has.

Hmmm. chobbs1, you're right, the one you have does look a little bulky (and it is also pricey, it had better sound good!). Alli, I couldn't find the 8030 anywhere, but I did find an intriguing little gizmo called the Jabra "Stone". Crazy expensive @ about $200.00 for the whole setup (earpiece, pads for the earpiece, charger, and even a clothing clip), but just might be worth saving up for, at least in my eyes. This looks like one that won't slip out of my ear!

i always use some type of headset. either bluetooth or a wired headset whenever i wanted to listen to music because i never decided to buy BT Stereo headphones. i don't really like holding the phone up to my ear, and i think that i can multitask alot more.

I use Microsoft Sync in my truck when I'm driving to stream music and make and receive calls.
I use JayBird BT-200's when i'm working out and running.
I use Apple's provided head sets when I'm in the hammock in the back yard or laying down on the couch relaxing.

Latest is Blueant Q1. I've had half a dozen others over the years. I am a multitasker .... can't be anchored by being disabled holding a phone to my ear. As soon as my day begins, the Q1 goes on and stays all day. Never have cared what people think of me - my life, my business.

I use a bluetooth headset about 80% of the time. I hate having to hold the phone up to my head plus, I listen to a lot of podcasts. I just upgraded to a Jawbone Icon which now supports A2DP and is great for listening to podcasts.
I either us the headset when driving or when driving on long trips I'm connected to a Jabra Cruiser car kit.
