If you're looking for a stereo Bluetooth headset but eschew the earbud style, the Blackwire C720 delivers a pleasing ear pad-oriented model. If you spend gobs of time making PC calls, this unit will enhance your Skype experience as well. Note that we encountered a slew of lost connections during testing; your mileage may vary.

Price when rated: $150

Pros

  • Answering calls by simply donning the headset worked like a charm.
  • Super-comfy ear pads and switchable boom for right- or left-side position.

Cons

  • Inline controls lack Play/Pause/Skip features.
  • Regular connection drop-outs proved frustrating.
