I agree the iPhone is simply sensational, while the Apple Bluetooth headset is a great example of minimal and functional design. However, if you've ever used the headset for even a few minutes in a loud or slightly windy environment, it's simply unusable. A Bluetooth headset without noise cancellation or wind guard is useless, no matter how pretty ... continued »

While still not excusing Apple in any way, shape or form from the lamentable absence of A2DP stereo Bluetooth from the iPhone, there's at least a hack of sorts to play music and the audio track from a video through your wireless headset. Don't get your hopes up too much, though; it's a partial solution at best.

Our man Vincent may be married to his iPhone, but he's rather promiscuous when it comes to Bluetooth headsets. He's always searching for the gold standard in hands-free, and while so far he seems to be leaning toward the Gennum NX6000 that hasn't stopped him dallying with SoundID's SM100 EarModule and Apple's own Bluetooth Headset. The latest beauty ... continued »
