I did a lot of research before buying a Bluetooth headset for use in my Miata and settled on the Etymotic EtyBLU2. It’s been a few years since my last convertible and back then I was using Jawbone. The problem with the Jawbone was that although the person I was talking to could hear me pretty well, I couldn’t hear a thing because the eartip sat in the ear and not into the ear canal. I bought a third-party eartip that did, but I could never get the volume to work comfortably.
The EtyBLU2 is a totally different experience. First off, people I talk to don’t even know I’m in my car…and that’s with the top down! It also sits comfortably in my ear and I can hear perfectly. You couldn’t ask for more. It’s perfect.
Now, I will admit it looks like something a telemarketer would wear, but ya can’t argue with the results. You can take the windscreen off the boom mic, but I settled for the smaller of the two provided ones. It also comes with an assortment of eartips as well.
If you’ve got a convertible and need a Bluetooth headset, this is the one for you!
