The Bottom Line The BlueAnt Q2 is yet another BlueAnt winner, with new Bing-411 features and fantastic call quality even in windy situations. The $99.99 Plantronics Voyager Legend big boom microphone isn't for the fashion conscious but its superb call audio quality and comfortable fit make it an excellent buy. The Aliph Jawbone Era knocks it out of the park with high-end features, amazing audio quality, and innovative design. The Jawbone Icon HD is perfect for those who want an easy-to-pair headset that will work on any Bluetooth-enabled PC or phone. Low-priced and extremely small, the $49 Plantronics M55 is a discreet and stylish budget earpiece, but there are better options for noisy outdoor environments.
