    a blutooth what?

    headphone/mic for your ipod, cell or other mp3 device?

    a blutooth car kit?

    a blutooth keyboard, mouse or combination of both?

    If your asking about a headset, then you need to ask yourself if you want mono or stereo. You'll also need to contimplate on "in ear" or "on ear" headphones styles (it's all a matter of user confort which no one can dictate but yourself.

    I chose to purchase the Motorola MOTOROKR SD9-HD unit. They feel comfortable and have a great sound. They come with 3 sets of in ear multiple size adapters to select from. Easy to operate and all controls are on the headphoens themselve such as volume up and down, skip forward and reverse, mute, answer call, pause and play etc.... they work well for active lifestyles and can be worn while walking, runing, etc.... I picked mine up at frys for $79 and worth every penny....

    I have a little Samsung WEP470 in-ear headset that works quite well. I got mine through Woot!, but it's available from Amazon for $20.
    Amazon has a wide variety of Bluetooth headsets in all price ranges. You can check customer reviews, which are generally quite informative and frank concerning fit, battery life, comfort and sturdiness. One nice feature of this headset is the fact that it has an on/off switch rather than a button. Talk time is listed as being 6 hours and standby time as 150 hours. Voice clarity is very good.

    when you say in ear, you mean like a earplug? that seems like a nuisance and unconformable!?

    It depends on personal preferance and also the style. Most in-ear style plugs frustrate the hell out of me; however the way the ROKR fits/sits is totally different. It's held on by the way its designed rather then by shoving something in your ear canal.

    Take a look:

    They also come in a variety of colors (black, red, white, etc) to suite an individuals cosmetic taste....

    Here's a fairly good review you may want to look at:

    Not really. The in ear bluetooth headsets generally have an over the ear hook that supports the headset and the earpiece doesn't really go into the ear canal, but sits in the outer portion of the ear. Compare this to "over the ear" headsets, which have traditional earphone construction. My Samsung isn't at all uncomfortable once the ear hook is adjusted properly.

    got away from bluetooth headsets, seems like I always had problem with them. Currently back to a wired headset made by iASUS for my iphone the 500K. I like the quality of the sound and the fact it is a little less visible then a bluetooth unit.

    Learned about them when I did some contract work for a security firm.
