Plantronics Discovery 975

Editor's rating: 4

The good: The Plantronics Discovery 975 is a unique Bluetooth headset that features multipoint, voice prompts, and fantastic audio quality with good noise-canceling and wind-noise resistance. It has a much improved charging case with a battery status indicator.

The bad: The Plantronics Discovery 975 has a hard-to-press multifunction button and the volume key is tiny.

Aliph Jawbone Prime

Editor's rating: 4

The good: The Aliph Jawbone Prime is a highly fashionable headset with a snug fit, plus it has better noise-cancellation and wind noise handling over its predecessor, resulting in even better sound quality.

The bad: We're not thrilled with the hidden buttons on the Jawbone Prime, and the singular volume button is a bit annoying. The volume is a little softer than we would like at times. While it has excellent call quality, you can get cheaper headsets that are on par or better.

The bottom line:The Aliph Jawbone Prime is a great Bluetooth headset that combines high style with high performance.

BlueAnt Q1

Editors' rating: 4

The good: The BlueAnt Q1 is a slim and stylish Bluetooth headset with an innovative voice user interface that lets you control the headset entirely with your voice. There's no voice recognition tutorial, and the audio quality is very good.

The bad: The voice controls on the BlueAnt Q1 sometimes would not work properly if the alignment is off or if you're in a particularly noisy environment. It takes some fiddling to fit the headset properly.

The bottom line: Despite a few minor issues, the BlueAnt Q1's voice controls and good audio quality sets this apart from other headsets.

Motorola Endeavour HX1

Editor's rating: 4

The good: The Motorola Endeavor HX1's bone conduction completely eliminates background noise when needed, while the CrystalTalk noise-cancellation technology works well in most everyday situations. It also has voice prompts and multipoint support. We like the feel of the controls and the snug fit in the ear.

The bad: The Motorola Endeavor HX1's bone-conduction mode can result in poor voice quality, and the HX1 might fit too deep in the ear for some.

The bottom line:Though the call quality isn't perfect, the combination of bone conduction, CrystalTalk, and other features make the Motorola Endeavor HX1 a fantastic headset.

Sound ID 400

Editor's rating: 4

The good: The Sound ID 400 is a slim, lightweight headset with excellent call quality, three personal-listening sound modes, multipoint technology, and a comfortable fit. It has an environmental awareness mode that lets you hear your surroundings without taking off the headset. It is also compatible with Sound ID's Remote Microphone.

The bad: The Sound ID 400 has skinny buttons and we would've liked a dedicated volume rocker. The environmental mode has a bit of a buzz in the background.

The bottom line: The Sound ID 400 is a comfortable headset with excellent sound quality and plenty of features.

Nokia BH-905

Editor's rating: 4

The good: The Nokia BH-905 has a comfortable design, very good noise canceling, excellent audio quality, and it comes with an array of audio connections in case your device does not have stereo Bluetooth.

The bad: The active noise canceling on the Nokia BH-905 can take a second or two to activate. It's also very expensive.

The bottom line:In terms of audio quality and comfort, the Nokia BH-905 is certainly one of the best stereo Bluetooth headsets out there.

Samsung SBH-600

Editors' rating: 4

The good: The Samsung SBH-600 stereo Bluetooth headset fits very comfortably on the ear and has excellent audio quality. We also like the 3.5-millimeter headset jack that lets you use it with non-Bluetooth devices.

The bad: The Samsung SBH-600's call quality could be improved.

The bottom line: Though it doesn't have the best call quality, its comfortable fit and fantastic audio quality makes the Samsung SBH-600 one of the best stereo Bluetooth headsets for listening to music.

Samsung WEP870

Editor's rating: 4

The good: The Samsung WEP870 can be used as both a mono and a stereo headset. It has a dedicated on/off switch, a handy OLED display, comfortable earbuds, and good sound quality.

The bad: The Samsung WEP870 doesn't have additional earbud covers, and we would have liked to see a mic integrated into the lanyard. We also wish we could control the audio playback from the headset.

The bottom line:The Samsung WEP870 is a great choice for those who want a convertible mono and stereo Bluetooth headset.

Jabra Stone

Editor's rating: 3.5

The good: The Jabra Stone has a one-of-a-kind design that combines a headset with a portable charger. The headset fits easily over the ear and is small enough not to be noticed. Features include multipoint technology and A2DP streaming.

The bad: The Jabra Stone's controls are difficult to use; we wish it had a snugger fit; and the call quality could be improved. It also fits around only the right ear.

The bottom line: While we love the style, portability, and feature set of the Jabra Stone, it does suffer from a few design and performance issues.
