Are you constantly swapping SIM cards between your iPhone 3G/3GS and another GSM based phone? The iPhone has an opening for your card at the top of the phone though removing it requires a special tool. If you lose the tool then you’ve virtually no chance of removing the SIM. Instead consider this $2.99 SIM Eject Tool that also hasRead more
You know how the secret agents and security officers in movies always have that telltale coil coming out of their ear? It just makes them look mysterious and important. Well, now you can get that same look with the IASUS 500K Headset. The 500K brings that same coiled design and stealth approach to conversations to your iPhone or Blackberry. FullRead more
A couple of days ago I reviewed the Jaybird Tiger Eyes earbuds, which include a microphone and are designed primarily for mobile phone users. But what if you aren’t looking for earbuds to use with a mobile phone? Enter the Endorphin Rush earbuds from Jaybird.
These earbuds have the same titanium drivers that the Tiger Eyes, which promise similar true
My very first bluetooth headset was from Jabra. Since then I have pretty much always had one of their products in my kit bag. I currently use their Jabra SP700 Bluetooth speakerphone every time I am in the car. I love its sleek design, fantastic sound quality and host of advanced features. It truly is a pleasure to use and,Read more
I’ve used a Plantronics 510 series for about 2 years now. It’s been a nice, steady workhorse for me. It isn’t the flashiest, or the loudest, but it has always been rock solid. Now along comes the new Voyager Pro. If offers a host of new features and technologies – a whole host of improvements. Let’s see if it livesRead more

One of the benefits of writing for both Gear Diary and whatsoniphone.com is that when I find a truly outstanding product, one about which which I am totally enthusiastic, I’m able to share that enthusiasm with a larger audience of both iPhone AND general tech enthusiasts. That’s certainly the case with the Sound ID 300 Bluetooth headset I have beenRead more
I’m always on the quest to find new headphones to use with my phones and as we all know the headphone set that comes with the iPhone are most inadequate to the task. In my own case, I couldn’t keep them in my ear!
Remember the Jaybird JB-200 Headphones I reviewed? Well Jaybird is back with another set of Bluetooth headphones. The Freedom headset looks like the JB-200′s I reviewed, but comes in different boxes for different platforms depending on what you need to make them work. For example, the JB-200im comes with everything that shipped with my JB-200 set. The JB-200im is pricedRead more
Bluetooth headsets are commonplace these days — especially since most states have now made it illegal to drive while holding a cell phone. Bluetooth headsets that are both comfortable and sound great, however, are anything but commonplace. More often than not I get a new headset that looks promising, use it for a couple of days, and then discover that
Do you dream about using a Bluetooth headset for both your cellular and office phone? If so, that’s weird. Setting aside that thought, this deal could make your day. When you walk into your office this Jabra JX-10 pairs right up with the included hub and functions as a wireless headset for your office landline. Before you jump in andRead more
Wi-Gear has upgraded the iMuffs for compatibility and optimization with the iPhone. Previously reviewed October 2007 here at GearDiary, the wireless headphone consistently delivers good performance and comfort for extended wearing periods whether sitting on your duff, driving, walking or exercising. Last year’s model had some initial compatibility issues with the 1st edition of the iPhone, but has been resolvedRead more
You know how there can be certain products that you see people using all of the time, or that maybe you’ve even used yourself for a while, but you just don’t really “get” them? Well that’s been my relationship with Bluetooth headsets, or “ear roaches” as Kerry calls them. Sure, I have used and reviewed many of the best modelsRead more
The folks at Just Another Mobile Monday have published a cool review on the Sony Ericsson HBH-DS220 Stereo Bluetooth Headset.
Says Ragart in the review –
Before we jump into this review, let’s try and set aside all the problems we might have with Bluetooth and its software implementations. Forget the fact that the iPhone doesn’t really support it well,
Ever since Kerry introduced me to the wonderfully descriptive and perfect term “ear roach”, used to describe those obnoxious Bluetooth headsets that so many people wear, I have been hard-pressed to think of them as anything but.
However, the Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth Earpiece I am writing about today is one earpiece that does not deserve my usual mockery. This
Bluetooth stereo headphones are really starting to proliferate. Not all headsets are created equal, that much is certain. While I do like my standby headphones, the Insignia Bluetooth headphones, sometimes I wish I had a lighter set for when I am working out; this set fits the bill nicely.
As anyone who owns an iPhone can tell you, a slight problem becomes apparent when you want to replace the stock stereo headset; namely that the iPhone’s headphone jack is deeply recessed, and the average 3.5mm plug simply can’t fit inside without trimming the rubber shielding the plug. When you are considering dropping some serious coin on a headset, theRead more
I am on a search for an alternative to the vice-grip like David Clark headsets that the company gives us to use on our planes. The Dave Clarks have one thing going for them; they shut out noise from the outside very well. The price for this though, is they can get downright hot and painful after a couple ofRead more
I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned this before, but if not then I doubt it will come as a surprise to any of you: I don’t like wearing a headset when using my mobile phone. I’m not sure if it’s because I haven’t yet found one that is so comfortable I can basically forget that I’m wearing it, or ifRead more
I’m a talker… Always have been, and will likely be yackin’ my head off the day I die. I… have the gift of gab. We all know its true, so who are we kidding.
With the influx of new devices I’ve got, E-TEN X800, E-TEN X650, and BB Curve 8310, I’ve been doing a lot of talking lately. I’ve been
Chris Spera called me the other day while I was driving my Alfa. We talked for a little bit, but then I finally had to admit that I was driving a stick shift in traffic, and holding my mobile phone to my left ear was a little bit tricky…since that was the hand I needed for the steering wheel, whileRead more
I admit I love wearing Bluetooth headsets for phone conversations (in the privacy of my car). However to wear them publicly, you have to get past the cyborg ribbing and the crazy look that people give you from looking at you like you’re talking crazy. Truth be told, most Bluetooth headsets are not worth the humiliation, let alone the intendedRead more
I have reviewed a number of different higher end headphones, both here and at Just Another Mobile Monday. For the most part, these headphones have involved cramming a small speaker as deeply into your ear as possible, in order to a) block outside noise, and isolate you within the music; and b) get the music as close to your earRead more
