    I have a Sanyo 5300.
    I am looking for a headset with these qualities:
    (my wishlist)
    > Comfortable (on either ear)
    > Good sound
    > Great pickup
    > But good resistance to wind noise, popping
    > Private (that is others cannot hear too!)
    > Good cord length
    > Durable


    I am looking for recommendations from people who have used particular models
    for a while...
    -or- from store personnel who know the models well!

    My uses will be:
    - Home
    - Car

    TIA

    Basic rule of thumb : "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR".

    Ergonomic factors guarantee that what one person may like, another won't.

    Do you want one ear or two, over the Ear, around the ear, in the ear,
    boom mike?, Extra Long boom?? There are all kinds, and what works fine
    for one person may be very annoying to another.

    Go to a high end cellular accesory store and try them out. Some of the
    ones Staples or Office Depot sell for land line phones will also work
    well with a cell phone.

    Ole Phillipe provided some good advice ... I have a 5300 and use a Jabra.
    Seems to work ok for yours truly and for the party I'm speaking to.

    I have used the little jabra's for the last few months--they are
    available on ebay for nothing and I have bought several of them to
    keep in various places; the reception volumn is almost too lound on my
    5400---the mike could be better in a noisy enviromnent, but work
    fairly well-but I have to talk a little louder than I would like..

    I really like the ebay prices, some as low at a $1.00 plus
    shipping(which gets cheapers if you get 3 or 4 of them)

    We get a lot of training kits in the stores, so we get to try a lot of
    them out.
    Cord lengths are all roughly the same, long enough to go from your
    waist to ear, with about a foot (or so) of slack.

    The Bodyglove "Pro" headset (black over the ear, no boom mic) is good,
    but LOUD, I'd have to take it out of my ear a bit sometimes to use it,
    even on the lowest setting on the phone it was still loud. It has no
    volume control but it does have a mute & answer button.

    The Bodyglove boom mic - great headset. Volume control, good sound
    quality, answer button, mute, etc.. It seems durable.

    The Plantronics "120", "135", and "140" -- all good boom-mic headsets,
    only the 135 and 140 volume control. The headsets themselves are
    curable, but the part that goes over your ear tends to break and
    getting a replacement isn't easy.

    The Plantronics "170" (over the head telemarketer) is very good, and
    probabally the most comfortable (but ugly).

    The "silver" headset (coiled cord) - OK quality, auto-answer button,
    cheap. Few complaints that the coil tends to tug on the earpiece a
    little.

    The cheap black headsets are exactly that, cheap.

    All of these (except the Plantronics 170) WILL get uncomfortable in
    your ear if in there for an extended amount of time (15+ minutes).
    The most comfortable I've noticed so far was the Bodyglove boom mic
    headset (which I still use).

    I haven't tried any of the Jabra branded headsets, but I've heard that
    they're great, but can be bulky while trying to get them into your ear
    if you're in a hurry.

    What I like about the Jabra earpieces are that they are less obvious in a
    public place. Some of these headsets makes one look like a real geek ...

    Very fond of the Jabra over-the-ear with the two sizes of get plug adapters
    for different sized ears. Excellent audio quality.
