I use a plantronics m28. Cost like 25 at walmart so they are cheap to replace. Music is fine nothings amazing with only one ear anyway. The battery lasts all day listening to music or audio books.

I use the LG Tone HBS-700 stereo bluetooth headset. I think I paid around $60 for it last year. Sound quality, for both music and calls, is pretty dang good IMO. It's also nice that I can comfortably wear ear muffs over them if I really want to block out any outside noise. Check them out on Amazon. The way they're designed seems kinda funky, but I haven't had a problem with them yet.

I use these also. About $42 at Best Buy. Very good blue tooth.

Spend a little bit more and you won't regret

LG HBS-730 around 45 to 55.

What I like about it, it stays in one place good, when you get a call, you feel it vibrating on your neck, the earbuds are like your traditional soft foam type of bud, the buds will store out of way when needed, or did I mention its stereo and not mono, so great for calls and music. I had the motoral also, good also, but didn;t like the way it hung on back of neck.

The lg is easy to operate and has a pretty good range also. I'm guilty of losing my phone(forgetting what room i left it) because the range is pretty good. A good 50 ft away i can be .

i just bought the hbs 730 and mine is black. so i think it is an upgrade from the 700, but i could be wrong.

anyway, i am quite impressed with the unit. out lasted iheartradio on my iphone in battery function. sound is good, and loud enough to hear while mowing. stays out of the way.

am very happy with this purchase.

I have the same one and it's great. I don't use it while on the mower but in the truck it's great. Music sounds great on it also.

Is that the updated model of the HBS-700? The 730 model wasn't out when I picked up the 700.
