I'm looking for some recommendations on some good ear-bud / headphone solutions. I've tried several, and nothing (so far) seems to work very well.
Here's my dilemma; I receive and make a lot of calls on my phone (a Samsung S-9). Many of these calls are multi-person conference calls. I often
have to pass through noisy areas with a lot of background noise. I can usually hear fine, but my background noise audio is often annoying to the
party on the other end (to the point where I almost always have to go on mute immediately after speaking...which is a PITA to do repeatedly,
especially in very active conversations).
Wired solutions are out because they just pick up too much noise, and then there's that annoying thing of the mic rubbing on clothing which sounds
like a thunderstorm on the other end. So it has to be wireless. For a while I tried this LG headset which goes around your collar with these ear
buds which were magnetically held to the headset. That actually worked okay for a while, but eventually it got progressively noisier (again, always
on the other end of the line). Then I switched and tried a set of those Skullcandy things which go around your neck with the internal mic. Those
didn't work well at all, way too much scratching noises from my collar.
I'd really like to find something which doesn't have an external mic at all, something which picks up the audio from inside my ear with no mic exposed
to outside noise. Oh, and it has to be wireless.
Thanks in advance.
ETA - In an ideal world, I'd just love, love, LOVE to find something which works as well as the David Clark and Bose headsets we use flying. I could
probably rig something up to make mine work, but a fella would look awful silly walking around with those on his head in public.
