    Hey everyone. I don't get on here nearly as much as I used to, but I wanted to come here and ask a question.
    I mostly run a Kobelco 140, Takeuchi TB260 and 290, and brand new Takeuchi TL8.
    My question is this.... what wireless earbuds or over the ear headphones have you used, and which do you find to be the best?
    I have been using the Jabra 65T for 2.5 years and they have been great. Phone calls are quite clear, even in the TL8 with the windows closed. The excavators and dump truck they are no problem for the person on the other end of the call.
    Jabra just came out with the new 75T and I bought a set. In a nutshell, they ROCK for listening to movies and music, but the phone call quality is pretty poor. So much so that I am bringing them back today. I may give the Jabra 85H a try, even though I'd rather not have an over the ear headphone.
    I am looking for something better for plowing snow in my new TL8 this year, as well as for the rest of the year.

    Thanks much.

    I bought a pair of Insignia (Best Buy’s brand) of Bluetooth “necklace style” earbuds. I wanted a set of noise cancelling that didn’t break the bank, so for $80 they were my best option. I paid $200 for the comparable Jabra set and had issues with them breaking up and losing connection. The insignias have been awesome and do a good job of blocking out my mowers noise. Price has gone down, so worth a shot

    I have only used the Jabra 65T and a pair of 3M bluetooth headphones (over the ear).
    I've had good luck with the Jabra 65T for all around usage.

    I've tried a bunch, and never liked any until these. Mostly for listening, but idled down no one seems to complain during a call.

    Plus they stay connected all day, using I heart or serius xm. Keep the noise down while operating mowers and Dingo. Held up for 6 months so far, better than all the others I've tried.
