    Sleekest BT headset?

    I presently have the HBH 660 headset, which works pretty well, but I can't stand the looks. It is just too obtrusive. (I also don't like the fact that the ear hook comes off so easily.)

    In any event, I am looking for a sleek, functional BT headset. I don't need any bells'n'whistles. I don't even use the caller ID on the HBH 660.

    Which headset seems to be the most aesthetically pleasing of the bunch?

    I like the Motorola HS810 and HS850. Both have folding boom mic that turns the device on/off

    The Motorolas look a little bulky-kind of the same problem I have with the HBH 660. I like the fold-away option, but how do they look when extended?

    The AX looks neat, but how well can the other party hear you when talking? The reviews seem a little vague.

    Thanks for insight guys

    I bought the jabra 250...it blows. Way to much static. Then the motorola hs810. Sounds good to me but people complain about the echo they hear when they talk. So I just got the bluespoon AX. Same thing. Sounds good to me but people are still complaining about the echo. I don't like the way it just sticks in your ear either.

    So who wants a brand new ax or 250 for half price?????????

    Bluespoon AX. As for the micropohone it is the best I have had, and I have the 660. You dont get much sleeker than the AX.

    Savdog01,

    Do you have the 250 or the new 250v with the vibrate feature? Also do you have the 3500 or the 3900 build? I went from 3500 to 3900 and it made a big difference in both quality and distance, using a Moto HS820.

    I paired with an older 250 last week and your right, it sounded terrible. I am wondering if the newer models sounds any better.

    I used a wired Jabra headset for years and loved the "In the ear" gel sound quality. I am not getting that from any other headsets. They are all on the outside and not loud enough.

    Stick with the HBH-660. It is the best.

    Remember that all of these devices have a BATTERY, a SPEAKER, a MICROPHONE, an ANTENNA, and a CIRCUIT BOARD. Therefore, they will have a little bulk.

    If you are expecting them to be as small as a wired set, you are mistaken.

    AX...

    All (good) things said about others, I happen to be partial to my AX. Had the 660, but only for a short while; too 'bulky' & I was afraid of it falling off.

    Yes, the AX, w/my XV6600woc, has some static, but I like it & it's small & unobtrusive.

    I just bought one of these. An over the ear set isn't an option for me. Right now I'm using the SE HBH-200 which works great, but I wanted something for watching movies and listening to music also.
