One of them's probably the BlueAnt X5 - what's the other?

Kate and I tried on a pair of the BlueAnt X5s at Dick Smith Belconnen
yesterday.  They're certainly not as comfortable as I'd hoped - I think
they're made for smaller heads than ours.  They're reasonable, but I
think they'd get very uncomfortable before the end of the extended
edition of the Lord Of The Rings, if you see what I mean.  They include
one powerpack and one USB charger lead, one USB interface to provide
your computer with a bluetooth audio sink, a plug-in microphone, and a
couple of audio cables and bits and pieces.  All yours for $179.

Me, I'm still looking out for a more comfortable version.

Have fun,
