Check out the Blueant T1. Here's an Amazon link with some reviews

It also supports audiostreaming.

Re: LOUD and COMFORTABLE BT Earpiece?

I'm digging the BlueAnt T1. It may have to replace my Jawbone II. I hate that damn Jawbone!

Re: LOUD and COMFORTABLE BT Earpiece?

And as always, I vote for the Plantronics Voyager 855 (my 'tooth of choice). I posted pictures and specs in another BT thread a few months back...

Light-weight
sound-isolating earpiece
Stereo/mono by adding/removing 2nd earpiece
Noise-canceling

Only on rare occasions do i get any "echo". It has to be when I am talking to another bluetooth user (perhaps their device is causing the problem).

Re: LOUD and COMFORTABLE BT Earpiece?

My choice is the Jawbone Icon with a jabra eargel fitted over it (with one of the Icon's round buds under it, or it won't stay on). The Icon is hands down the best headset I've ever used; the eargel makes it tolerable for me and funnels the sound right into your ear. It's lame that you have to buy the eargels separately, but they do help since I couldn't get a good fit with any of the Icon's accessories. You can also get a custom fit eargel from some company (I can't recall the name right now but it'll come up in a web search), but they cost as much as the headset ($80).

Re: LOUD and COMFORTABLE BT Earpiece?

Voyager Pro is a great headset, but I find it's not loud enough. It's just loud enough, but there have been situations where it hasn't been loud enough for me.

Re: LOUD and COMFORTABLE BT Earpiece?

I have the G5 as well. While I DO like it I am not fully impressed with it.

it has comfort issues (the tail hurts my ear and I have BIG ears so its not too tight) and its not very good quality (but not bad) or very loud (but again not bad).

Then again that was with my 8330 I have not yet tried it with my TP2 I will try it today and report back.

The best QUALITY headset I have ever used was the PS3 BT Headset. alas no way to make it "stick" in your ear (its a "bud") and oddly NOT very loud at all.

Disappointingly quiet actually. I was expecting it to be LOUD being a gaming headset.

it is VERY good in quality though and battery life is insane. It is VERY comfortable though (not comfortable at all if you lose that ear piece rubber though!!!)

Re: LOUD and COMFORTABLE BT Earpiece?

Thanks for finding that link, I couldn't remember the name of the company offhand. I would skip the Avery sound ones if the eargels will do. You can get the eargels for $10 shipped off amazon and it's worth trying them before you shell out $80 for the custom one, unless money is no object.

In which case try both and let us know if the Avery ones are really that amazing...I'm curious.

The important thing about the eargels with the icon is that they say to put the small plain jawbone ring on first. I tried that but since I use the large eargel, I ended up using the large jawbone ring and it holds the eargel very snug, allowing the sensor to rest comfortably on your face. It takes a bit of time to figure it all out the first time you put it together, but so far it seems to stay put really well. Some people say the eargels don't work at all; I think they may be forgetting that you have to put one of the jawbone rings on first, or the eargel has nothing to grab on to.

Re: LOUD and COMFORTABLE BT Earpiece?

Can you send me a link to which eargels you are referring to? I might alreayd have them? Also is this ear piece we are talking about LOUD? I have had several units and they claim to be LOUD but they arent. I actually have to push the ear piece closer to my ear so that its loud enough...
