Hi,

I have a klipsch brand two-ear hands free Device. Frankly I'm dissatisfied and looking for another. No Bluetooth, don't want to be beaming additional radiation into my brain.

The klipsch lets a lot of background sound in on my iPhone, and the ear buds fall off all the time and are easily lost.

My requirements:

-noise isolating (ear-fitting silicone ear buds)
-two-ear
-high quality noise canceling microphone.

I use it a lot, so I'm not afraid to spend $$$.

Thanks!

I have an excellent single-ear headset for my phone, but it doesn't meet your double-ear requirements.

I had really good luck with a Plantronics Bluetooth headset, used it for years...

If you don't want bluetooth, I think we sell a decent wired one in the Mobile department, but never really lookoed.

I was in a truck stop and started paying attention. I saw probably 4 guys wearing 'Motor Trend' brand headsets. I finally asked one of them about it - he said it was the best headset he had ever used and wears it all day every day in the cab.

I think it was BT though. I am also interested as I still use the white set that came with my iPhone.

no bluetooth, thanks. I dont want/need another battery, nor do I want the extra radiation.

Extra radiation, really? I'm mostly teasing, but I've had people come in and tell customers not to buy wireless routers because they are "bad for your health, and cause cancer" and try to put signs on them saying "don't buy" with skull and crossbones on them. I have had the "pleasure" of having to escort them from the store. Some people....

Anyway, look around, I'm sure one exists, but it may be pricey.

These comments do have merit. Beaming energy into your cells does have SOME effect. Though the radiation is non-ionizing, there isnt enough understood and the hopes of commerce and pulling a profit has caused excess proliferation.
