    How well a bluetooth works should really be the opinion of the person calling not the person using it. I have yet to buy a bluetooth, but I have talked to many of my friends with them and I have to say the Blue parrot wins hands down. I will be finally buying one this weekend.

    Many of you have bluetooths that maybe you can here well on but On the other end they sound like SSHHIITT.

    I have the blueparrott BT250 or some thing like that. Nobody complains about my call quality.
    My wife has a jawbone and its real hard to hear her. The voice is so muffled that I have to turn the volume way up on my end. That destroys the call quality to the point where I can't tell what shes saying. Either way I'm screwed because I can't tell what shes saying.

    I tried a few of them including the jawbone and I am currently using the BT 250 also. People say I sound the best with the BT 250. They say it is like I am in a quiet room using the handset yet I am in a truck rolling 68 mph with the window down and CB blaring.

    Has anyone tried this new BlueParrott Xpressway headset? Any comparisons with the B250 XT would be appreciated.

    Brickman she's probably just giving you her honey-do list. Did you really want to hear that?

    I'm about to return my second one. Worked well for a few days then people have trouble hearing me if I don't speak loudly. I thought the original was ugly but I think I will give it a try.

    I bought one and none of the fitting options worked for me..

    The over the head boom seems smaller than my 250. The behind the neck option was too big and the over the ear option wouldn't stay on..

    I wish it would have worked but I'm still happy to have my 250..

    Haven't tried the newest offering yet, but I may get one. I have a love/hate relationship with BlueParrott. Excellent volume, decent clarity, and nobody ever believes I am driving a truck when talking to them.

    But, I hate the buttons on them, cant stand the bulky goofy size and connectivity leaves a lot to be desired. I turn mine on and off quite a bit, and its a guess every time whether or not the #### thing will sync first try...

    I can only think of two things that a trucker looks "dumber" walking around a truck stop with. Crocs, and sweat pants.
