What is your favorite Bluetooth headset?

I have been using this Q900 from SoundPeats for quite a while. Unfortunately mine is wearing out and they don’t make it anymore. I love the great sound quality, cheap price tag ($20), the fact that they also act as earplugs, and they don’t interfere with my range of motion. What are you using?

Just invested into a new head set. Can’t say enough about them. Blue parrot 450s. Can drive anything loud, or be around anything loud and the person on the other end thinks your quietly sitting on your couch. Don’t hurt my head (wear them all day), batterie lasts 2 days with constant use.

10/10 would recommend.

Are kind of pricy though. $225 on Amazon. Tried all kinds of head sets and ear buds, expensive and cheep. Found these the best. Spend the money and make yourself happy. Lol

AirPods hands down.

Not good in loud environments though to use for phone calls.

Our whole farm uses the voyager plantronics. They’re unreal. It would be pretty hard to get me in to something else.

Blue Parrot makes the best headset for loud environments hands down. They're not the cheapest, but worth every penny. Whether I'm in the semi or tractor, everyone I talk to say it sounds like I'm at home.

Plantronics 5200 has worked really well. In fact, the only brand of bluetooth headset I've ever used is Plantronics. I can be in a noisy tractor and I've had countless people think I'm pulling their leg when I tell them I'm in a tractor doing fieldwork. It is also on the smaller side so it doesn't make it feel like you're wearing earmuffs.

I also have a blueparrot VXi B250-XT works great can drive our cabless jd3020 and talk to people no problem but ya kind off pricey at $250 but worth it I think

Verified FBN Member (ND)

250 is as low as $75 on Amazon.

Verified FBN Member (ON, CAN)

That's good to know. I got it a few years ago

Verified FBN Member (MN)

Plantronics voyager small easy to wear, great sound, clear, all for $100 best price

Verified FBN Member (MN)

Apple air buds are the best I’ve found. Only exception is in a very loud environment. Use in the combine, they’re amazing.

I have been using SkullCandy Bluetooth ($60 at Best buy) and just slipping my earmuffs on over top. Decided to try 3M Worktunes with Bluetooth for this year. Haven't started harvest yet so we will see how they work

Verified FBN Member (TX)

How did they work

Verified FBN Member (ND)

Love the BlueParrot 350. Great battery life. Unbelievable noise cancelling in mic.

Verified FBN Member (WV)

Sync Wireless by Honeywell. Model RWS-53016. Can get it on Amazon for around $100. Nothing better for calls and audio through the day. Battery lasts 12 hrs plus. Easy to use and I can be in skidloader or open tractor or around blower and hear/be heard perfectly

I have 2 sets of mpow Bluetooth head phones. They are not real expensive like $25-$30 on amazon. They work great and sound good. When I’m wanting over the ear muff style I use Skull Candy Crushers. Really good sound better than my ultimate ears and monster headphones.

Verified FBN Member (IN)

I’m using a BlueParrot B350-XT. It took me about 10 $50-$80 headsets before buying this one and it’s hands down worth every penny. I pretty much can no longer talk on the phone without it it’s so nice. Doesn’t matter standing next to an irrgation engine or my kids screaming it works. ive had it for over 2 years.

Verified FBN Member (MN)

Blue Tier Elite for the noise canceling feature

But on second one as battery would no longer charge

Long battery life in between charges

Verified FBN Member (OH)

I’m using ISO Tunes Pro and it’s definitely the best I’ve tried so far at the price point. $89.99 at isotunes.com I can talk on the phone while I’m unloading grain without cranking the volume to eardrum bursting levels, in the tractor, in the semi, all day long and I’ve never had a complaint all fall that someone couldn’t understand me. Only thing I don’t like is the wire that goes from one to the next, so I got a little clip that holds the wire to my shirt and now they don’t bother me at all. Super comfortable, basically like wearing earplugs. Music quality is decent, but I’ve heard better

Verified FBN Member (OH)

I just tried wearing the wire behind my neck today in the tractor and it was just far enough away that it would cut out when I was on the phone. As soon as I brought the mic forward to inches it picked up perfectly clear so something to consider

Verified FBN Member (NE)

**** QuietComfort ll headphones.

Verified FBN Member (OK)

I just use my Beats, I’ve tried a blue parrot one, but I didn’t like the one ear headset... it still allowed me to hear the noise I was trying to ignore

Blue tiger makes an interesting headset now that is convertible from mono to stereo. Elite plus I think it’s called. You can take the second earpiece off if you want to be able to hear ambient sound while you’re on the phone like if you were driving… It looks tempting but it’s also quite expensive.

Verified FBN Member (MN)

It is not legal to have both ears covered while driving, so maybe the removable one has its place but where do you put it when you remove it to drive

Verified FBN Member (MO)

Blue parrot in the trucks and machinery dont know about thehard work side. Dont use one

Blue parrot hands down for over all performance.

Have used them for 5 years

Verified FBN Member (MN)

Just like others have said, blue parrots are hard to beat. I have a 450xt and I have talked on the phone cleaning out a bin as well as mowing lawn and the other person cant hear any difference.

Anybody have the AirPods pro? Can people hear you when you are in the noise? I want something for both ears with good noise canceling but I hate having something around my neck or over my head!

Verified FBN Member (QLD, AUS)

Plantronics voyager 6200UC but by far the best quality with noise cancelling bear in mind they’re bit on the expensive side
