Anyone recommend a BT headset that works well with N95?

I had an old bluetreck g2 one for my old nokia 6280 that worked fine but from reading here I see that it is a known problem for the volume to be crap on certain headsets - and this is dire now.

Anyone name me a brand/model that they are using that has some really good volume (my car is very loud and hearing is not the best so I really do need some good sound)

Many TIA

EDIT: Forgot to say, I don't want a stereo dealy, just a single ear type-thing

Nokia

I think you should just buy one of those Nokia 1s the 1 i have is the nokia bh-200 it worked well with my N80 an now its doing its job with my N95 but the best thing about them is they charge up with the same charger as your phone so you dnt worry about a second charger!!!

i have my N95 an Nokia BT headset and my Nokia GPS reciever all charge with the same charger!!!

Nokia BH-500

I've got the bh-500 and the beauty of it is that it allows you to use your own earphones with it. I've got an excellent pair of Senheisser earphones and i just roll up the wires and connect it to my headset, and clip it onto my shirt. Its not completely wire less, but it works like a charm!

Besides volume adjust, you can also play/pause/skip tracks remotely as well. And quality is excellent for both listening and talking. It is a tad expensive, but its well worth it IMO

I find the Jawbone to be one of the best I've ever used.

I have got BH-500 as well. In fact the headset is quite qood. Unfortunately the earphones are not very well, they are worse than original wired ones. Nokia could provided better earphones for this headset, especially in this price.
Nevertheless I think it's the better option for now, although I have heard that a new headset has to appear in the market soon (more expensive of course).

BTW:
Which exactly Senheisser earphones do oyu use?
Can you give a link?

Hi slawmilcz – yeah it is great and I agree, the earphones Nokia provide with the headset are kinda crappy though…

haha I actually have 2 different headphones. the sennheiser ones I use (hd212pro, link is http://www.sennheiser.com/sennheiser...nsf/root/05180 ) are above average but not too pricey, which I also hook up to my guitar amplifier, or for monitoring music. Due to their size, its good for using it at home or a walk in the park, but maybe not for the bus ride home, due to it not being very discrete. If you want an excellent pair that’s discrete (and maybe noise cancelling as well?) I’d suggest you go for the PXC250 (http://www.sennheiser.com/sennheiser...sf/root/04924#) it all depends on your budget and how you would use it

The other pair I have is a small earbud Sony earphones, which im using right now at work there isnt a model number on it, but it’s the standard ones you get with a new sony discman or mp3 player. It sounds good when there isnt much noise around you, but otherwise there are better ones out there (not including the default s**tty ipod ones). It was only about 20bucks though
