    I have tried a few Bluetooth headsets with the Xoom. here is a list of them in order of Sound quality and Comfort...
    1 Jabra Halo :
    Exceptional Sound Quality in both Music and Phone Calls, Exceptional Comfort, Not Recommended for Running.Definately recommended for the Coffee shop or the library or the long train rides, I love the touch sensitive surfaces and its foldability

    2 Plantronics Backbeat 903+:
    Excellent Sound, which is on par with Jabra Halo, especially with music reproduction (Provided you can configure a good fit, I had to modify mine slightly for perfection, Picture attached) for phone calls,its slightly better than a standard mono set. Superb Comfort (Surpasses the halo), the only model with voice feedback and a surveillance mode for listening to your surroundings(amplified like a hearing aid), Motorola is probably better suited for Jogging because of its potentially tight fit( you will either love it or hate it, most hate it),


    3 Motorola S10 HD:
    Ok as far as sound reproduction in music goes but that depends highly on the shape and size of your head (if the headphones don't fit comfortably, the ultimate placement of the ear bud can hinder the sound delivered into the ear track, drastically affecting the resulting experience, then, if it does fit you, the sound is only fair, primarily because of a lack of Mid-Highs, causing vocals to sound muffled , this is compounded by a very powerful bass line
    .Excellent Build Quality, The Coolest Look and appeal, by my standards, of the three, while the 903+ draws the most attention.
    Personally, I own all three but the be honest, the motorola has been relegated to the junk drawer..sorry motorola, but i have a big head and i think you were not thinkong about big headed nerds when you made this one, The Halo , I use primarily for extended relaxation on the porch, in the library, the coffee shops on my days off, any airplane rides or long train rides, doctors and dentists offices..etc, the 903 goes with me everywhere else, lunch tome, sitting at the computer desk, the mall, weekend walks in the park with the dogs...etc. I let the need for portability dictate...but if were forced to take just one with me it would be the Halo..SLightly richer bass, cleaner Highs, longer battery..but i would be seriously missing those very sexy voice prompts..." listening time remaining,3 hours"

    Dont bother wasting your time with anyother models on the market. The three listed here have been extensively researched and ultimately they are the only ones which provide exceptional sound while maintainaining durability nd comfort..not to mention that these are the only companies which offer no hassle replacements . Do your pricing online and look for the halo $30-50, 903+ $30-60 and the S10HD $60
    Good Luck
    Also the Motorola Oasis is an excellent Mono Headset also the Jabra Stone2 (avoid the Stone1 like the plague, horrible reviews price dropped from $130 to $30 on amazon because of poor functionality, quality and sales)...Finally, There is a difference between the Plantronics 903 and the 903+, those differences are Price and also the plus is the only model with voice prompts and revised controls..

    I hate in ear headphones and tried to find a relatively small pair. The Jay bird sb1 are great. I mainly use for when exercising

    I completely agree with everything I just said

    Using two sets of motorola s305. One for while I'm at work and the other for when I'm at the gym (seems to be holding up well with the sweat and all).
