I've used a bunch of Bluetooth headsets but the only one that I really really like is the Plantronics Voyager series, the latest is the Legend and it's very comfortable and has great features.

I'm still shocked that I see people walking around wearing an earpiece when not on a call. Last year some turd in a movie theater didn't want to turn his off, so it kept flashing blue every 2 seconds. A**hole.

I use mine only when in the gym for listening to music, both wife and I have the Motorola S305, works well with her iPhone and my Nokia Lumia 920.

I don't use it for phone calls though, so can't really tell how good it'll be.

I don't want to be racist but it seems to be older Asian male seems to like doing this, its like they're living in their own fantasy world and Bluetooth technology is still uber cool. Must have watch too much Japanese anime or something.

I frequently see this in restaurants, they'll wear them when eating and talking to their friends/family. Really weird.

This was actually a nicely dressed black man in his late 20's/ early 30's. I told him he could remove it from his ear now, or from his rectum later. He made that "this is the biggest annoyance ever" sound then turned it off.

If you can't go 2 hours without someone needing to get a hold of you via text or phone, clearly you're too busy to be in a movie.

I completely understand the feeling when people do that. I'll be using it more for its function hence the search for a miniature size one if possible. My dad still rocks the ish out of it like its a fashion statement even when not on the phone WTF is that about lol... anyways thanks for all the feedback and comments much appreciate more is welcome!

So this is where the Calguns fashion police hangout.

Op just get yourself a headset that works well and ignore the FP.

Take a look at the Jawbone Era, I've been really happy with mine. Sound quality is awesome and it holds a charge forever. Small enough to drop in your pocket until needed.

The smallest one I have is a Blue Ant. It is smaller around than a dime and doesn't stick way out of your ear. Blue Ant makes high quality blue tooth equipment.

I bought three of these and they are all I use. Motorola S10-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headphone. Every year someone buys me a new bluetooth as a gift for some reason and I get excited to try the latest and always go back to these.
