I've been using a Jabra A125S with my iPod 5G and it works well. The only drawback is the A125S has a battery life of only 6 hours, so I decided to try the Motorola D650 in hopes of a longer play time. Here are my complaints; The D650 drains the iPod battery quickly. When you pause your iPod for more than 60 seconds or so, the D650 powers off. When you start playing your iPod again, the D650 has to resync with the headset. Most of the time the resynch takes several minutes minutes and required repeatedly unplugging and plugging in the D650, starting and pausing the iPod, placing the headset back in pairing mode, etc. After owning the Motorola D650 for all of 5 days, it died completely. Unless your looking for poor quality, poor design and poor performance, don't bother buying a Motorola D650.
BTW - I've since purchased a Sony TMR-BT8IP. It costs more than the D650, but it performs superbly. Easy to synch and it stays synched, excellent power conservation, resistant to external emanations (microwaves, PC's etc.)
