I need a new Bluetooth headset

Recommendations? Sub-$100, methinks. I used to have a Motorola HS820, but it's slowly dying.

Not that I would, since it's an old model, but what's your reasoning? I've had it for like 2.5 years...

Re: I need a new Bluetooth headset

I think that was one of the innumerable one-liners that he posted that morning.

Regarding your headset, a couple of my friends have the SoundID SM100 and really like it. A couple of points that they like is that it's the "in-ear" type, not like the HS820 with the earlobe hanger. They also really like the sound quality, user settings, and the (gimmicky, I think) environment-awareness mode, which basically amplifies sound when not in use so that it makes it seem like the earpiece isn't actually impeding ambient noise. Of course, it drains your battery when you have it set on.

Oh, and if you have 2 people with SM100's you can set them up to work as 2-way radios so you can talk to each other, but the range isn't all that great.

Edit: I think they're about $75.

You don't mean Motorola, right? You mean Aliph.

Re: I need a new Bluetooth headset

Kinda ugly though (and twice as much $ as the mot headsets). I just stopped by a vzw store to see if they had it so I could give it a look in person (there was a vzw store next to where I eat lunch), but they didn't. Still, it's tempting.

Yeah, the H700 and H850 are both around $50 now.
