Default Best in ear BT headset for the ET4G - single ear for making calls?

I figure people in this group probably only want the best phone equipment. I've been using the plantronics voyager 975 for years and it is extremely comfortable, light and sounds pretty good. I was curious if people had compared it to say the Jawbone ERA or other in hear headsets. I'm not fond of over the ear ones as I want it to be very compact to fit in my pocket but I need to be as clear to my clients as possible. I'm just looking for a single ear headset for making calls.

Anyone who has had the 975 and can compare it to a better headset would be ideal.

That LG looks pretty nice, but doesn't look very pocket friendly...

Yeah it just chills around your neck like a necklace no need to put it in your pocket. Plus it has two headphones makes it great for movies/music/driving conversations

He/she wouldn't be the first person I have seen driving with headphones on. Actually is no different than the folks with the bass/stereo so loud that it is shaking rust off of the car...LOL. Neither situation is very safe.

Yes, and the noise cancellation is rather good.

I'm used to using headphones while driving. I do it all the time on my motorcycle. I'm a great driver so I don't really see the issue with it just like you said no different from blaring your stereo.

I use the stereo Plantronics, can't remember the model, it's about a year old. Has worked great with every phone and laptop I've thrown at it.

Mainly use it at the gym, so I can keep my phone in my pocket and not have to deal with cords. In the car, I use the BT in my stereo for music and calls (best invention ever IMO)
