    Default Any good and inexpensive (<$100) bluetooth headset to recommend?

    Had the V3 one but got complaints that it's too noisy when used outside, so now looking for one that has noise cancellation capabilities

    I saw this here at Challenger at $69.
    Can't confirm if it is from Creative. Anyway, Creative got them from OEM. There're many same model under diff brandnames.
    I'm using this, so far so good.

    Thanks. It didn't seem to have any noise cancelling mechanism though

    Considering Motorola HS-850 now.... seems cool

    Initially, was looking at Logitech Mobile Freedom but it looks pretty big.

    Don't think you can find any Bluetooth headset with noise cancelling capability.

    maybe not exactly noise cancellation found in high end ear/head phones I did read abt "Windstop" and DSP noise cancellation features though.

    i am using the HS-80 which is pretty good. One thing i like about this series is that you can actually "switch off" the headset to conserve battery.

    I believe you are referring to HS-810. HS-810 and HS-850 is basically the same except HS-850 supports Bluetooth V1.2.
    Anyway, 60+% of all Bluetooth headsets available in the market uses chipsets from 1 particular supplier so chances are that their operation and performance are similar.

    I am using the HS-850. Long battery life coz when you fold the boom, it switches off. When the phone rings, just flip out the boom and it switches on. Connects fast so that by the time you put it to your ear, the bluetooth is already authenticated and connected.

    The pouch could have been better made though.... I dropped one when it slipped out of the pouch...

    Not bad. After playing with it for a while, it can get into a comfortable position on your ear. At first, I thought it was a little loose but so far it has not dropped from my ear yet.

    Too bad I just sold the Motorola 850 for 50 bucks to my cousin. I am now using the Jabra. I've used many Bluetooth device before but the Jabra FS 258 is the longest battery life and teh most comfortable. True is looks big but you can leave it in your ear the whole day without feeling any discomfort.
