Default Blue tooth head thingys

I have never used one and i always make fun of retards wearing them walking around in public but i think the time has come i need to either get a blue tooth ear thing or a plug in something or other for my phone with the way the commercial driving laws are in effect.

So i have seen them from 20- 200 dollars is it a pay for what you get thing or can i get away with a 50 dollar unit.

Buy a good Jawbone. You get what you pay for is my experience. That said, I haven't used one in over 4 years.

I use a bluetooth speaker with caller id that I hang on the visor. Either that, or I just jack the phone into the car audio.

I have an original jawbone and love it, especially for.plowing, even has a reach of like 40ft so i can still manage calls if i.need to hop out for salt or to shovel.

However it doesnt always last through the longer storms, and isnt all that secure on my ear, that rhymes

Blue Parrot B250-XT.. Best Bluetooth on the market in my opinion. $60
on Amazon. Every truck driver I know uses them. There aliite bulky but the
sound quality is top notch. I wouldn't leave home without mine.

x2 our drivers use these as well and all the drivers i see at the fuel stop have similar style.. the little in ear ones get un comfy after a while.

$20 ones work. But the person on the other end hears
allot of background noise. Whereas with the blue parrot the person on the other
end hears absolutely nothing but the person talking.
Every driver in our fleet used them and they can talk with the
windows down and radio on. And we can't hear any
of the wind noise or radio.

Also they are very comfortable to where all day and battery life is
16hrs on a charge.

Blue parrot is hands down the best but dont get the one with interchangeable headbands.
I had 2 jawbones. They are another awesome option but they get lost too fuckin easy. One is who the fukc knows where and the other slipped off and landed in a tank of crude oil.

If you say "Secure on my Ear" without a southern accent it rhymes.

Ill get the model off of myne, absolutly hate wearing it. But when im working on some machine and need to call about parts or need some help it is handy. If it wasnt for commercial laws i doubt id wear one.

Just buy a Garmin GPS with bluetooth. I take phone calls on the run in rental cars all the time. I wouldn't recommend having lengthy conversations with it but i hate having a piece hanging from my head.

Never mind i dint see the 50 dollar thing'. You can find them used for that.
