Thoughts on stereo Bluetooth headsets?

So I'm considering getting a Motorola HT820 stereo headset with noise canceling mic. I intend to use this with Skype as well as my Sidekick 3, when I get it. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Bluetooth can still be spotty. It works great for phone calls (most of the time) I just don't know how the sound quality would be and if it would stay consistent.

If I fill half my tank with Shell V-Power gas and the other half with Chevron with Techron gas will I have V-TEC gas?

The particular set I want (Motorola HT820) has gotten some pretty good reviews for it's sound quality. However, there is no mention of how consistent it is.

Now, the only advantage of Stereo BT is if you want to play music, right? I don't really get the point of using BT then, because you'll always have them in. You have to worry about quality, you have to worry about two batteries (the BT headset and the phone), and it's extra cost.

Re: Thoughts on stereo Bluetooth headsets?

I have the BT820. I think the sound quality is pretty good. I use it a lot in conjunction with both my LG VX8600 phone and my laptop when listening to music at work. I can listen to the music from my laptop in my office when I'm working in the labs, so the range is good.

I haven't had much of a chance to use the mic, but that's mainly because I don't get signal on my cell phone in the building at work and that's usually the only place I'm using the headphones. Just after I bought it, I did test it out a few times to make and receive calls from friends and it worked fine. I had no problems using the voice dial commands via the headset mic.

I know what you mean, and I'm not getting one of those. This one in particular is more like regular stereo headphones minus the wire.

Thanks, this is what I wanted to hear.

Well, my headset showed up today, and I'm shocked. It actually sounds GOOD! Thanks for all the suggestions.

I'm still waiting for Sennheiser to make a decent bluetooth headset...
