Default Bluetooth headsets

Pretty simple, what do people own for Bluetooth headsets and what about them do you like. My wife and I both need new headsets and this area seems to be full of BS marketing. I just want a good headset, I don't even know a budget, it looks like the majority of decent spec ones are between $75-100.

I have a platronics one I bought over 5 years ago and it still works great. The sound quality is pretty bad by today's standards but it's old. I can definitely vouch for their quality and durability. I believe mine was the Voyager series.

i've went through a jawbone and a jawbra and found them both to be quite brutal. I use a Bose now. It's on the higher end price wise but you get what you pay for when buying bluetooth.

Just a quick update, I picked up a Plantronics PL-VPROHD to test.... I have not used it extensively yet but for a bluetooth headset it is very impressive sound quality. I will have to test it with a few more people on voice quality but so far it seems decent for the people on the other end. Its comfortable, the over the ear design just kind of places the plug in the ear.... does not seem to strain over long periods.

Just thought I would update since no one really reviews these things, its like shooting in the dark sometimes.
