    Can anyone tell me if there’s a good brand of headset for truckers? I’ve heard of blue parrot and was wondering if that’s the best one out there or if there’s better. I’ll look around once I get one a truck after orientation at some of the truck stops I was just curious if anyone could give me any advice on what brand to look for. Thanks!

    I like the Blue Parrot. Long talk time, excellent noise reduction, loud volume

    I went through several cheap ones and then bought a blue parrot. I've been happy with it and purchased another one for my car.

    You can purchase refurbished ones from their website to save a few bucks.

    Bought a Blue Parrott 350 shortly after they came out. Still works great and I only have to charge it once every week or so.

    Blue Parrott. I just got the Blue Parrott 550, Love's truck stop has them for like $160 with some discount of $40 but it mail in refund or something. The 550 is the newest and has a couple upgrades from there 450 or 350. The 550 seems built better more solid headset. The 550 has a couple voice commands you can activate by saying Hello Blue Parrott, just some very basic stuff and it will answer the phone or redial last number or check battery level. You can to the same and more pressing button on headset to activate Google Assistant. If you pay full price $200 Love's has new one with special color.

    The older 450 and new 550 with the Love's special edition

    I got the blue tiger elite when it was on sale $139.

    Usually $179.

    It's bad ###. Everyone can here me crystal clear.

    And they JAM for listening to music off of my phone. I'm an old rock n roller, and they awesome bass.

    Bought my mom a Blue Tiger with the Covid Stimulus and she loves it. Me and my mom both agree that the BlueParrot 450 headsets are complete garbage. Dont even get me started on Road King brands

    Yes, I like it. When you take phone out and in of truck. You can reconnect the Bluetooth with phone by pushing the button on the headset. That seemed to always be problematic with the other models. When you get phone call you can just say "hello blue parrot" and it it answer the phone.
     
    authentic251 Thanks this.

    Sounds good. Was comparing the 450 and 550 but saw some negative reviews of 550. Probably can't go wrong with either one.
