I know that I have seen many people posting about stereo Bluetooth headsets and what to get and where they can find a good deal on them. Well today Amazon has Jabra HALO stereo Bluetooth headset for $35 with free shipping. They have 3.5 stars out of 5 on user reviews, and I have never personally been disappointed with and of my Jabra headset that I have had over the past 12+ years.

Jabra HALO Bluetooth Stereo Headset.

Also because these have a mic built into them these would work great with the GrooVe IP. Which I am still loving. The only thing is with Motorola expected to launch a Droid phone on Virgin mobile in the next couple of weeks, my Archos may see less use. :(

The price on this has been low for sometime now. The problem is the battery consuption on these is horrible. The best deal is for me Samsung 1610 for 25 or samsung 3500 for 33. both are on amazone. The later has an extra ear bud and can be turned into two ears steteo.
Both have A2dp. And can be used for music and even connect to two phones.
The first is on sale in frys electronic for 24

Sweet, I had a Jabra that would separate into two separate pieces I loved it and, really miss it.

I read into this one. At first I really liked it, then I read a ton of people's reviews saying that the folding mechanism that actually turns the thing on goes out and stops turning it on. I ended up buying the Motorolla S9-HD. It can connect to both my phone and archos at the same time, has A2DP and that thing where you can control the music from the headset (can't remember the acronym right now). I'm happy with it, and I got it cheap brand new.

I have not tested the latest Jabra units so this info may not be current.

Jabra and Parrot BT units have shown a prevalence of incompatibility with Generic phones/pda's of non-US origin.

Check any BT thread on here, Sony and Nokia seem to be best.....

Sorry for resurrecting this old thread, but...

FZelle, the 903+ aren't working with my A70. I get regular dropouts. I've tried it with local audio, pnp DLNA server files, internet radio and still get dropouts. The 903+ work fine with my Samsung Tab.

Anyone else have the 903+ working with Gen 8, what firmware?

Dave

I think that Jabra Supreme UC would be a much better choice
