Which bluetooth headset would you recommend for the Droid X-Icon or Voyager?

I'm currently using a Blueant Q2 on my Droid X (unrooted and 2.2) and it doesn't work as well on this device as it did on my Touch Pro 2. It takes it about 45 seconds to open the voice command software and other times the voice command software sounds scratchy/static and very far away.

I'm looking for a new headset and was wondering about the Icon vs the Plantronics Voyager Pro+ and if anybody has used either one and how it works on the Droid X.

Thanks!

I have the ICON and am pretty satisfied with it. It gives me good sound quality and the physical on/off switch is great to prolong battery life when no in use and in my shirt pocket. Never tried the Voyager.

I never had the PRO+, but I have the PRO and the ICON. For me, I couldn't find a comfortable ear bud with the ICON and it kept wanting to fall out. Its a little better with the ear loop attached, but even then it felt loose and the ear loop is flimsy. It got uncomfortable for me during long phone calls.

The PRO is very comfortable for me. Its a lot bigger, but has great battery life. I can talk on that thing for hours without my ear hurting.

I've never had anyone complain about call quality on either of them and I think they both offer noise cancellation.

I've also never really used them for voice commands since its not supported on my phone yet.

EDIT: I also don't have the Droid X...

I actually tried both this past week and the I really didn't like the fit of the Icon as Mindfrost82 said it kept wanting to fall out and the earhook was flimsy. The swivel portion looked like on good tug and it would break.

I tried the Plantronics Voyager Pro+ and it felt better but I just couldn't get it loud enough to use in the car (with the radio on at a normal level).

I'm probably just going to stick with the Q2 at this point but thank you for the help.
