All that's missing is the ability to listen to music. If they add that and bring it out for android it would be hands down the best and most versitle Bluetooth on the market. I'll be keeping my eye on this one.

I'm fairly certain they've implemented A2DP via firmware update on the 510 - so now it's simply missing apps for other OS'es.

Yep - A2DP music streaming is now supported. http://www.soundid.com/mobile/

I will say this - I have the 510, and it's a nice piece - but I still prefer my jawbone icon and blue ant q1 to it. The Icon's onscreen battery icon and overall superior noise reduction are far more useful than the novelty of the soundID app, which I rarely open. The q1's comfort an voice commands are also more useful. Take that with a grain of salt however - as they are all quite good, I tend to split hairs.

I have the Sound ID 510 and I love the thing. THe battery life is just epic. I've listened to music for about 6 or 7 hour straight and it still had battery life. My one problem with it is that it absolutely killed the inside of my ear for the first week. It was to the point where I had a sore on the inside of my ear, even after changing ear pieces. I did learn to use it on the left ear rather than the right. But sound quality is great. Battery life is killer.
