I bought this headset after first trying a Plantronics Voyager Pro. The Voyager sounded fantastic (both talking and listening) but wasn't compatible with safety glasses or a hard hat. (I'm an engineer, and need to wear safety gear when I go out in the field.) The VXI BlueParrott Xpressway ALMOST solves that problem (more below) but has some quirks and bugs of its own that need attention from the manufacturer.

Pros:

* Very long battery life - can be charged once a week instead of every day or two
* Buttons big and easy to find
* Multiple wearing options (but see below)
* Comes with car and AC chargers; can also charge from USB
* Mic boom is bendable
* Plenty of volume

Cons:

* Bluetooth very susceptible to radio interference. Walk past a Wi-Fi access point (which are all over!) during a call and there may be clicks or bursts of white noise. Wasn't a problem with Voyager; could be due to attempt to give the headset a longer range. Maybe it should have a sensitivity adjustment?
* Sometimes disconnects from phone with no warning; possibly also an RF issue or a software bug. Never happened with the Voyager
* Sometimes, when one pushes the button to answer a call, the phone answers the call but there's no audio on either the headset or the phone. Have to shut down the headset to get audio on the phone... if the caller is still there by that time!
* Ear hook is ill-fitting, useless for everyone I've tried it on
* Phone's voice prompts (I am using a Motorola Quantico) loud and distorted; did not have this problem with Voyager Pro. AGC issue?
* Noise cancellation nowhere near as good as Voyager Pro. Susceptible to wind noise. Phone's voice recognition fails often, especially in wind.

I bought this headset because it's one of the few behind the ear headsets available, and I wanted to use it with a bicycle helmet. I also own the VXI B250XT (over the head unit) which has great noise reduction esp outside, but has a wind screen on the mic.

This unit sounds equally great, but has options for behind the neck and typical ear loop. I use the behind the neck which is a bit tight on my head (large hat size). It's not the easiest thing to do to if you want to switch between the different configurations.

Outside, if it's windy (or if i'm on a bike in my case), you can hear the wind noise. It was easily fixed by putting a windscreen on it I stole from my xbox headset. Other than that, it's a great unit.

I am a field tech with the phone company, so I am ALWAYS on conference calls. I am on calls constantly while driving, while doing physical work, while inside noisy datacenters, factories, and construction projects. Because of this, I need all day wearing comfort and battery life. I need a microphone that actually comes close to my mouth. I need excellent noise cancellation. I'm tired of carrying around a bunch of chargers, so I need mini USB.

Here is what I have used so far: The original Motorola HS810, Jabra BT250, Jabra 8010, Blueant V1, Plantronics 510, Plantronics Voyager Pro, Plantronics Voyager 855, Plantronics Pulsar 590, Motorola S9, Motorola S9HD.

My Favorite headset so far has been the Plantronics 510. Even after trying all the others, I kept going back to the 510. Even after running it through the washing machine 3 times, I kept going back to the 510. After my last washing incident, I was saddened to see that they no longer carried the 510 at Fry's. I had tried the Voyager Pro twice, but both of them died for no reason within two weeks. After dealing with that, I decided to go on a quest for a new headset that met my needs.

I was first attracted to the BlueParrott Road warrior. I was impressed that all the drivers of 18 wheelers use them, so I was pretty much sold on BlueParrott sight unseen. I then found the Xpressway, and decided between the 3 different wearing options, the two different size ear pads each in two different materials: foam or pleather, and the slightly less dorky looks, I would go for that one instead.

It's a back to basics design which means it works: Old school over the head band holds it firmly in place. Foam cushion on your ear lets you hear your surroundings and almost forget your wearing it.

I had the VXI BlueParrott Roadwarrior B250-XT Bluetooth Wireless Headset. My uncle suggested it, and I work on the phones for work. I loved the Roadwarrior. I was very excited that they came out with the "upgrade" that I could try in 3 different ways! But I was mistaken as to how great this product would be. I am going to list the pros and con's objectively in case anyone is really contemplating this item. I hope this is helpful to someone. I did end up returning it.

Pros-
lightweight
answer button is easier to push than Roadwarrior
3 different ways to wear
don't have to worry about mic placement(roadwarrior, mic needs to be further from mouth)

Cons-
the over the ear is large and not very adjustable
for glasses wearers, the over the ear and behind the head are awkward, and starts to hurt
harder to hear the person on the other end than roadwarrior
I think the person on the other end has harder time hearing you(I got a lot more"What? What?")
you can't move the mic up and down like roadwarrior, has to stay near mouth
mic is a little heavy for the behind the head, seems to tilt forward, a lot of adjusting so others can hear you
