TiPb Top 5 iPhone Bluetooth Headsets


The following Top 5 iPhone Bluetooth Headsets guide is sponsored by the TiPb iPhone Accessory Store

The holidays are fast approaching and what a better last minute gift to give than a fancy new Bluetooth headset! With so many choices out there we figured many of you could use some help choosing the right headset. Today we'd like to give you our top five headsets available within TiPb's iPhone Accessory store! Our picks are as follows:

  • BlueAnt Q1
  • Plantronics Discovery 975
  • Jawbone Prime
  • Motorola H17
  • Motorola MOTOROKR S305

For the full rundown follow us after the break!

BlueAnt Q1


We are going to start off with my current personal favorite headset, the BluAnt Q1 voice controlled stereo Bluetooth headset. [$99.95 - iMore Store Link]

Out of all of the headsets I've tested, the Q1 is by far the only one I could leave on a full work day and not even realize I'd be wearing it. It is also one of the very few headsets that gets updates via firmware with the latest update enabling stereo Bluetooth along with some other small features. And top it off with top of the line audio quality and you have yourself an excellent choice of stereo Bluetooth headset.

Be sure to check out our full review of the Q1.

Plantronics Discovery 975


I will admit that I am currently testing this headset and will be posting a full review in the coming weeks and without giving you my full impressions I will say the Plantronics Discovery 975 [$119.95 - iMore Store Link] is indeed a quality headset.

Not only do you get the simplicity of one-touch controls, dual-mic AudioIQ² and WindSmart technologies to keep your conversations crisp and clear you also get a portable carrying case that doubles as a wireless charger on the go which is really a nice touch. Again, a full review is coming but definitely a headset worth picking up!

Jawbone Prime


Next up we have a headset that Rene put in such high regard with his full review a few months back, the Jawbone Prime. [$109.95 - iMore Store Link]

The main selling point of the Jawbone is it's top of the line noise cancellation, aka "NoiseAssasin". No other headset on the market gives you better noise cancellation. And to top it off you get a plethora of colors to choose from - black, platinum, green, brown, yellow, purple, and red. To top it off they are all in stock in our store. Double bonus.

Motorola H17


The Moto H17 [$89.95 - iMore Store Link] is Dieter's choice of Bluetooth headset and for a few good unique reasons.

There are those times where you need to run out of the house along with your headset but you forgot to plug it into the charger the night before, good thing the H17 has a rapid charge feature. 15 minutes of charging gets you a bit over 2 hours of talk time. Now throw in Moto's "Crystal Talk" technology for incoming sound quality and you have one heck of good headset. This is a headset you can not go wrong with.

Motorola MOTOROKR S305


Now the Motorola MOTOROKR S305 [$49.95 - iMore Store Link] is not your typical Bluetooth headset, for the money they are the best wireless stereo headphones currently available for purchase.

Sporting great sound they are extremely lightweight and fit comfortably with the out of ear 1.2-inch ear pods. The S305 is perfect for those looking for a wireless headphone solution to bring to the gym or even if you want to enjoy your music lounging around your home. Get an incoming call while listening to your music, not a problem

TiPb Top 5 iPhone Bluetooth Headsets


BlueAnt Q1 - Over Priced
Plantronics Discovery 975 - Over Priced
Jawbone Prime - Over Priced
Motorola H17 - Over Priced
Motorola MOTOROKR S305 - Over Priced
Conclusion - Over Priced
Sorry but my headset cost me 14.95 shipped from new egg and it works great and if I loose it I get another one for the same price. Actually my Jawbone would get more static than my 14.95 headset.

I had an original Jawbone and then when I got the iPhone I thought it deserved the new Jawbone Prime. I tried every ear piece it came with and they either hurt or it fell out of my ear. I took it back because of the comfort, not the performance.
I bought the Plantronics Voyager Pro. It's the best bluetooth I've ever had. Comfortable with just as good noise cancelling technology as the Jawbone. I could be driving with all windows down and the person I'm talking too never knows. I love it!
I'm surprised it's not on the list.

I have had a Bluetooth headset for about several months now and got fed up of it not connecting/staying connected to my iPhone. Is it the norm with these devices to disconnect from the main unit/device when not in use for a period of time?

The jawbone prime is great as long as you get the jabra earbuds to make the fit comfortable and usable without the earloop. My next Bluetooth will more than likely be the blueant.

I want the Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 stereo BT headphones, but you can't control volume or next/previous tracks.
Anyone know if Apple will get off their ass and add AVRCP to the next update? Pathetic, Apple!

I use the Motorola S9. Aside from iPhone's lack of support for AVRCP, they work great!

I used to have a Plantronics Voyager 520 headset that was awesome, but then I lost it (I think my cat stole it and hit it somewhere). I replaced it with a Motorola H390 a couple weeks ago (got it on sale at Staples for $14.99 after instant savings & rebates) and so far it's been working great (after getting used to it).

I like the Bell BH200 that came with my PC when I bought it a few years ago. It's comfy to me and has great sound for music. It's not much for talking on though but that's fine for me cuase I tend to talk loud. If your soft spoken, probably wouldn't recommend it. I use it most to listen to music while mowing grass and stuff like that.

Kinda shocked that no one has mentioned the Sound ID model. With the included App for tuning adjustment of the noise cancelling... it is without question the only wireless headset that I can use with regretting it. Worth everyone taking a look at both the 510 & elite 512 models!
