    Bluetooth Headset Recommendations?

    I've got a couple of Nokia 6310i's (one for work, one for personal use) and my trusty old Nokia wired headset is now faulty after providing many years of service. Hence, i'm looking to keep up with the times and invest in a Bluetooth headset. So, my requitrements are:

    1) Must be discreet
    2) Good battery life
    3) Pairs quickly with phone
    4) Rapid charging
    5) Under 50GBP

    Any recommendations?

    I've got one of these, infact just about to go buy another one for the missus.

    Only down side is it charges off USB, but i think you can get a normal mains charger.

    I've had it 2-3 weeks and its only needed charging once since the inital charge, but i'm not that heavy a user.

    I have a SE HBH60 and think its a great headset. Fills most of the quota apart from battery life, but as its a quick charger and uses standard SE chargers then you can use a SE car charger to charge it.

    Very comfortable and sounds very good. Worth a look imho

    we will have a Jabra headset roundup shortly, I am going through the ones we have, i started with the most expensive one, but its out of your budget, £99 RRP, but the BT800 is...VERY impressive....

    Jabra BT250 has a good fit, top average battery life and 12/24v chargers are available. BT200 could be a cheaper alternative.
    Rhyth is selling:
    Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 XR Di ll LD Aspherical (IF) £230 +pp
    Canon 50mm 1.8 II £50 +pp
    Proven good copies.

    Thanks for the replies. I eventually ended up getting a Motorola HS850 Bluetooth headset. I did look at a couple of the Jabra ones but the HS850 felt the most comfortable on my ears.

    Anyone see this new item from Zonet?

    It's a bluetooth stereo headset for your phone, plus an MP3/WMA player via SD, and an FM radio all in one!
