Do you play a lot of MP3 or other music on your cell phone? If so, a typical Bluetooth phone headset does not really give you the best of music because it is mono. If you would like to use a headset for your normal phone use and also occassionally to listen to music, then the Jabra BT 8010 might interest you.
This is a Bluetooth headset that comes with two earphones: a main unit and an auxiliary unit. When you want to use it like a phone headset (e.g. while driving, when you cannot have both headsets on), you can use the main unit. But let’s say you are working out and want to listen to music. Then you connect the auxiliary unit to the main one with the attached cable, and it becomes a stereo headset!
I have used this headset for about 5 months now with my Treo-680, and I have been quite happy with the performance. The main headset also has a volume dial that is easy to operate. It also has an LED display allows you to access the menu and configure it! You can store a few phone numbers. The main headset can be changed to right- or left-ear use very easily; the auxiliary unit just goes to the other ear.
