Recommendation: Excellent Bluetooth Headset
I don't spend a lot of time chatting on my cellphone and I especially don't like to use it when I'm driving, even if I am hands-free. It's not what you are doing with your hands that's the problem, it's what you are doing with your brain. However, there are times when it is necessary to have a brief conversation and anything that makes it easier to expedite it is welcome.
A month or so ago I bought an Aliph Jawbone bluetooth headset on the recommendation of a friend. It's distinguishing feature is a noise cancellation circuit. In a noisy enviroment such as a car, or even the waiting area at an airport gate, the noise cancellation feature takes out most of the background noise, both for you and the person at the other end of the call. The friend who recommended it to me would call from an airport and I could hear nothing but him, loud and clear. In addition to the noise cancellation technology, the headset features several interchangeable earpieces, so you can get a custom fit to your ear, and four additional ear loops, two for each ear, so the headset will hang over your ear and stay snugly in place, whichever side you prefer to wear it on. I bought mine at Amazon at a discount of roughly 50% from list and at least 30% from what I saw it selling for at a local store. I highly recommend it to anyone who has to spend any time talking on a cellphone. Here's the link to Amazon. Go check it out for yourself.
