Any one got one?

what do you think of them? (if you have it)

and finally have you ever tried using it in your helmet?

I'm getting a new phone w/ bluetooth and I'm wondering if it's worth it.

I've got an ericsson one (the one w/ the long boom hbh-300 I think) and I love it. Makes driving much easier and makes it easier just doing stuff around the house when someone calls. I don't know if the bluetooth aspect of it is huge, but having a good headset is. The wire can be annoying, but if you're considering money, I'm not sure it's that big of a deal. I'm happy w/ mine though, good christmas gift

If someone does call... how you gonna pick up if the headset is under the helmet. I suppose you could have voice-activated answering turned on or something like that... but good luck without ANR on any bluetooth headset I've seen. Most of the time you have to touch a button on the set to pick up the call. kinda hard to reach through your lid for that.

I think you can set some phones in "handsfree" mode to auto-answer...but if not, pressing that little button in the helmet will be pretty impressive

Already tried it...doesn't work because of windnoise. Even with a Shoei curtain too much wind noise.
Only reason I would think about it is to make a call without taking all the gear off, riding and talking is like playing street hocky during a church service I don't even like coms.

I use the Jabra Freespeak which I think is the most comfortable of the wireless and I have tried using it under my Shoei but not while riding. During normal use it picks up a lot of ambient noise so I see how it could be noisy. I do not have the auto-answer feature on my phone but I might have to test it out (in a controlled environment).
