    Blue Parrot is an industry leader and for good reason. I have a BT350 that is approaching 5 years old that still works perfectly.

    I would avoid cheaper headsets that don't have noise canceling microphones.

    I bought a road king headset this Summer and it works great. The only issue I have had with it is syncing with my phone but I believe that is a Bluetooth issue. It has only happened a few times. I have heard that can happen with Blue Parrot also.

    I no longer drive. Heck, I can't even do the George Jones thing today. Epilepsy (actually why I had to leave driving) I have a particularly nasty form of Epilepsy called ADPEAF and to fight it I almost always have music playing through mine. I can also take phone calls. As @Redtwin said, get a good pair with noise-canceling mikes.

    I use these, I am in my 3rd year, still get the full 6 hours of battery life.

    I have a Blue Parrot, not sure what model number but I bought it in 2007. Still works good.

    The mpow bluetooth dongle I use in my older model car is outstanding. Great sound on that thing.

    Sennheiser is a really good name in headphones. I have a pair of their earbuds and it is shocking how good those little things sounds. I didn't know they did noise canceling Bluetooth, will have to try them if my Blue Parrot ever dies.
