Priced at $129.99, which is positioned as a premium offering, it packs all of the previous version’s lovable qualities, but it’s now compatible to work with the iPhone, BlackBerry smartphones, and Android devices – while still maintaining its rich and unconventional...

This headset is pretty cool. I like the design, features, and cool app it comes with. I would like to see a over the ear optional hook, but that's just a personal request. Other than that it looks sweet. I might have to get this after my BlueAnt z9i dies (had it for 2 year now)

most definetly seems worth having if i ever used a bluetooth. and the price doesn't seem bad at all for everything it does. i'd pay that much just to feel like SecretAgentWoman... spying on everyone. HEY! I HEARD WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT ME!

Interesting headset . . . BUT where can you buy it?? Not available on Amazon or Best Buy. Only place I can find it is on the Sound ID site. Any discounting?

As a years long user of Sound ID i can attest to the quality of their BT headsets. We've used them going back to the 1st one, I've had a 400, a 510 and a 512. And when my daughter lost hers, i got her a replacement 512.
I've not seen the 6 yet at, at least not at a decent price yet, although i'm not sure i'll bother yet. My 512 is still working great.
If you get the 512, you get earprint and the other stuff and my guess is it'll be essentially the same as the 6 but not quite as cool. The reviewer also missed the fact that the 500s and the new 6 have 3 little mics on the side and that helps with noise cancelling. It's not quite to the Jawbone level, but it's pretty close. I was driving, my wife called and I was rocking loud. I couldn't hear her til i turned the music down, but she barely noticed i had music on.. Cool..:)
I use the 512 every day, it's super light and comfortable.. And to the guy who wanted an over the hear hook, it does include it, the reviewer didn't mention it. I don't use it and don't see the need, it stays in your ear pretty well.The ear things are weird, but they are soft and come in 3 sizes.. one will fit comfortably.
I've seen 512's pretty cheap, so if you want to try this brand, that might be a good way to go..It's shiny, cool looking and does the volume thing by running your finger over the plastic.
BTW..I don't work for them, just a customer. :)
