    Cellphone mic/earpiece

    Does anyone have an earpiece for their phone that is actually comfortable? Mine is one of those with the little loop that goes over your ear and holds the mic thingie in place, but it's somewhat painful to wear.

    Suggestions?

    I went with a pair of bone conduction headphones. They sound great, and the mic is more than adequate too.

    Is what I currently use, but there are others. I never liked those loops/hooks and I could never find an earbud that would stay put in my ear.

    I always thought those things made you look like a Borg.

    This is **GREAT**! Thank you. I didn't know such things were commercially available.
    I have a daughter with a hearing disability and no one has ever brought these up - not even the doctors we saw *yesterday*.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt

    Very cool - I hope they might bring your daughter some relief with her hearing.

    I had no idea this type of tech might be useful for that, I just tried them on a lark really, hoping for a nicer alternative to having things stick in your ears, especially on long airline flights. I feel like they're the headphones I've been waiting for my whole life. They're great.

    My hair hides my earpiece, plus I'm not one of those people who walks around looking like a weirdo because they're talking to themselves. I use it almost exclusively for work because the speaker in my phone sux.
