BlueAnt V1 here, with updated Firmware. Tried JB's but found them a bit lacking in comparison and hate having to hold it against my face. Tried about nine different BTs and the V1 is by far the best imo.
I spent hundreds of dollars on bt headsets. I understand your question. Believe everything you here about the voyager pro. I travel hundreds of miles everyday in a noisy van, plus being outside and in clients offices. The preformance of this product is the best ever. My 75 year old father complained that he could not hear me over the road noise on all the other headsets. When I got this one he was the first test call I made. While doing 65 mph with a/c on he thought I was home in my living room. My daughter has hearing problems and had a hard time understanding callers on her blackberry. She got the voyager and that problem went away. I have recommended the voyager to my clients and they all have thanked me for it.
The only over hype with this product is it's claim that you can be outside in the wind. Believe everything else that Plantronics says. If you get one please post and let all of us know how you like it. Good luck.
All of the previous statements in this thread are right on the money.
I to have had just about every BT that's been out on the market, and personally my favorite would have to be the Blue Ant V1.
The sound quality (out going/in going), as well as it's fitment in my ear (made even better by using a Jabra mini ear gel, which also seems to have helped increase the incoming sound quality), as for it's voice command abilities and size, make this a worth while BT to have.
As for JB.. the first two variants had some serious fitment design flaws, whereas with the Prime they seem to have remedied that problem.
As far as Plantronics go... the sound (out going/in coming) is top notch, but the design is very dated. When it comes to the Voyager Pro (that puppy is bulky as hell), and if you're wearing shades or regular glasses, fitment yet again becomes a major issue.
One BT that I'm keeping an eye out for is the up coming Motorola HX1 Endeavor.
It seems Motorola is trying to make quality worth while equipment again, but this time with the tech they acquired from Invisio when they bought them out. And after personally using gear made by Invisio while I was active duty in the gulf... I'd have to say its going to be top notch. Here's a couple of links on the HX1 Endeavor:

Motorola HX1 Bluetooth headset rumored to be $159, Sprint exclusive
I purchased the Blackberry Headset 655+ from cellphoneshop.net and its worth the price and comes with a holster that the bluetooth fits nicely inside. Comes with 3 different ear gels.
I have the Motorola H960 and I would not recommend it to anybody. You can not get 5 feet away from your phone without it cutting out. I know it is off OP but I just wanted to give everyone heads up.
Jawbone Prime worth every stinking penny of it man.. dont waste time on others just pay for it and get it you will NOT regret it.. thanks JL :hail:
Yea I also use the Jawbone2 and its amazing the difference from others.....I now have BT built in to my car so I use that but when I'm in my other I use the jawbone and I can have the windows down and they can still hear me and not the wind. It really is great. Hope this helps :)
yea not to mention you can still hear them, it gets quite loud... really is an exceptional piece of equipment
Jawbone is the way to go. Won't regret it. It really does work as they say.
I am using a Plantronics Voyager 520 and it's the best BT headset I have ever used. Been using it for about 6 months and it has never disconnected while in use.
I should qualify my last post by saying it did actually disconnect on me last week. I realized it when it beeped in my ear and I thought it quite odd. Then I realized that I had just returned to my second floor office and my BB was still in my vehicle out in the parking lot (some 60 feet from where I was standing). Not too bad!
Well... after 4.5 yrs. of venerable service, my Z9 (flashed with Z9i firmware) finally died.:17:
Was very impressed with this little beauty, which is what compelled my wife to get her V1.
So... after shopping around for a decent replacement, a friend of mine suggested that I give the JB Prime another try. Reluctantly... I decided to give it another shot.
This time around, I was amazed on how well it operated. I guess my previous one was defective.
All I've got to say is get this latest and greatest from Aliph is well worth the investment.
Trust me... you wont be sorry.:)
I was using the Oakley Razrwire for a couple years. It worked flawlessly with both my old motorola razor and my storm. Got stolen out of my car a couple weeks ago, but another is on the way (not in stock locally...)
Thing I liked best was it comes attached (removable) to a pair of light grey sunglasses, and can be set up so it doesn't even touch your ear at all. Sound quality is superb and, although I never really leave my phone unattended, I was able to cruise all over my apartment without the phone and it never lost signal. Outside noise wasn't a problem, since you can attach it to either side of the glasses for driving, and the foam covers on the ear piece muffle wind noise pretty well.
