    What happened when you put "Bluetooth Headset" into a Google search box?

    Any bluetooth headset will work with your iphone.  The bluetooth protocol is standardized.  Now to find one that works well is an entirely different issue.

     

    The Jawbone era is a favorite among many, but Jawbone devices (and other manufacturers) have a tendency to stop working properly around a year. Also the Jawbone background noise filter may not work with your voice.  For me it would filter my voice (moderately low) unless I spoke extremely loud.  This IS insuring that the rubber nub is touching my face.

     

    I have had the greatest success with the Motorola HX550 but again it stopped functioning properly around a year.

     

    I have tried the Plantronics: Voyager Pro, 925, M55, M155, M165 (marque 2) / Jawbone: Original, Icon, Era,

    Motorola HX550, and various Samsung and LG units.  Plus many more that I can't remember; the HX550 worked the best for me and my callers. (I used mine all day in and out of a car (Honda Fit).  I am now looking to for a new headset and may just buy a new HX550 since amazon sells them for ~$35
