Summary: The bottom line for me in using any Bluetooth is how well my customers can hear me when they or I call. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant. I have tried four different headsets with this phone over the past year. Each was a higher-end unit and the last was the jawbone icon hero, which users here have rated very highly - one of the best. The trouble is that my callers would complain of hearing themselves echo, or that it sounded like I was in a tin can. This was consistent for all of the devices. Enter BOSE. I was skeptical after reading reviews here (and the hype on their own website) but desperate to try one last-ditch effort. So, after checking their return policy (still the skeptic) I purchased one at Best Buy, thinking I'd just bring it back if it didn't work.
Well, no need. It DID work - amazingly well. As a test, I called my father on the way to best buy using the Jawbone. Then I called him again once I left the store after paired my BOSE with the phone. I asked him if he noticed any difference in the quality of the call before telling him what I had done and he commented that he could hear me more clearly than he ever had and that "that annoying echo" was gone. He asked what I did and I told him. I repeated the test with some of my colleagues to see if they noticed any difference. The resounding answer was yes - a vast improvement.
Bottom line? While there are features that would be nice to have in a bluetooth, BOSE got the most important one right in my book. My family, friends (and even more importantly) customers can all hear me MUCH better! Expensive, but well worth it to me as the experience for my callers is critical.
