Default Best bluetooth mic headset?

I'm looking for a pair of bluetooth earbuds with an in-line mic that has good noise canceling AND good sound for music. Is there such a thing?

I looked at the bluebirds x, but reviews consistently say the outgoing noise cancellation is worthless. The Go 2 from Plantronic doesn't even have noise cancellation at all, so that's out.

Any suggestions?

Default Consider

I know that you wanted a recommendation for earbuds but have you (and other people reading this looking for an answer) considered some on ear headphones? Obviously there are cons to giant on ear headphones but there are some magnificent pro's that make headphones worth considering. anyway, for the lower budget, there's the tenqa remxd. great quality for the price, but not much else to it. a classic look as well. it fits with the Nexus as a nice understated good looking device. on the higher end is the Jabra revo Wireless. Jabra is well known for their Bluetooth headsets and the Revo Wireless was a pretty nice one i was looking at. a bit overpriced but there really isn't anything else that has the features for a similar price. and on the really high end is the Parrot Zik. high quality but high price. i recommend a look at the Revo's myself just because theyre at a reasonable price range with some cool stuff

I already have some $400 Sennheiser over-ear for just listening to music.

What I'm looking for is something small that fits in my purse that sounds good and I can use to talk to clients in a noisy setting on my nexus. So it's got to be earbuds.

The BlueBuds are awesome. Test them and return them if you don't like them.

I personally don't do much wireless music streaming, but I have heard good things about these:

Depending on your personal situation, maybe the older model would be a better investment because this new one seems to have a much shorter range compared.

Hope this helps!

I looked at those, but if they'd even fit in my purse, they'd break.

I have these and they're not fragile in the least. Actually quite durable - I toss them in and out of a small gym bag. The "loop" is extremely flexible and covered in soft touch rubber. The battery life/performance/sound quality are all great.

The only downside for me, since I use these for the gym (lifting specifically), is anytime I lay down they want to slide off my neck. For general use and running these are amazing.

I have the Motorola Buds, and I love them. I haven't had any issues whatsoever with them.

I have some Outdoor Technologies Tags I got for free from my Girlfriend's Father.

The mic is OK but the music is actually superb. It drowns out most outside noise. 32 feet length and 6 hours of consistent listening time
