Bluetooth Headsets - Where to start?

I'm in the market for a hands free bluetooth headset, but have no idea where to start my search or what to be aware of when shopping for one. I've never used one before, so it's all new to me.

- Can anyone give me some advice on what to look for?

- Are the brands that much different (Motorola, Jabra, Bluant, etc)?

- Recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

You could start with a "bluetooth headset" on or and compare the features of the resulting headsets. You should have an idea of what features you want from the headset. Also, verify that your phone supports your required headset features.

Most all of the headsets coming out do the same things. Some support the Stereo profile and others don't.

But besides this feature, the headsets are the same. You know, except for price/size/manufacturer.

If I may suggest one brand that I have been using for a while and that has worked regardless of where I was at, would be the Jabbra brands.

Good luck.
