Ear buds too. For $130 I'd expect a more open system.

One problem to note with the headset feature. If you are driving on the road with both ears plugged up, police aren't going to like that too much. Well, maybe not all areas are like that but some it is illegal to have headphones on or both ears covered while driving.

The legality issue aside with respect to driving while using headphones of any kind over both ears,….one would think common sense would kick in before law enforcement had to get evolved.

no, i don't. many wont care. but anything thats 150 feet range from your phone is using your head as an antenna (just like if you hold your car fob against your head it can blip from huge distances)

HAHAHA, to me no driver should be able to use any other device while driving as every thing is a distraction to some degree.

Umm dual mic part kinda cool not sure about the wireless part though. The blue tooth remote to a PS3 is sweet how ever the MS blue tooth mouse sucks ass massive time.. So kinda makes me wounder..

LOL, a lot of laptops have WiFi and Bluetooth. Most people put a laptop on their lap at some point and I recall hearing that it can be attributed to the cause of sterility in men (or decrease in swimmers).

I also suspect putting a phone (with bilt in cell, WiFi and Bluetooth) directly to your head is worse then just a Bluetooth headset.

I would use a Bluetooth headset like this for a 30min to 1hr jog but that's about it whereas most people would use a laptop next to their junk for a lot longer then that,.....

In my car I would just use the built in Bluetooth so it wouldn't be in direct physical contact.
