Yeah I noticed the Motorola s-10 set and wondered if I paid too much at $40. I'm actually kinda pleased that it's not discounted further.
Actually all the bluetooth items I own [soundbox, earphones and keyboard] are same or close to what's served up here, and I bought at pretty much the same pricepoint. OK, my boombox is maybe a little lower-end, but I'm happy.
Technically, the glass is always full.

Uncomfortable for longer periods of time.
Found this video review on YouTube.
Hard to hear caller in noisy environs, earpiece is hard plastic, not gel.
People reported being able to tell he was on BlueTooth, and sounded tinny.
It has a proprietary Sennheiser port. If you lose the proprietary cable, or it breaks, you're out forty bucks. He also had trouble finding the charging cable on Sennheiser's website or iGo tips.
"For $69 to $79, you can find better alternatives."
For forty bucks, I would pass. I, too, am in the market for a decent, inexpensive bluetooth phone earpiece. Inexpensive in case my girlfriend's dog eats it again.
all glory to The Hypnotoad.

The Keyboard - word of caution.
I bought it during the recent Woot-Off, and the discussion was hot in both the comments and the Amazon reviews about battery problems.
My professional opinion:
Never leave the keyboard on charge and walk away for a long time. Keep an eye on the thing and unhook it when it's full.
Technical Explanation: The charge circuit may not be fully shutting down when the battery's full, causing a minor overcharge that reduces the service life of the battery. This is actually a common problem in cheaper chargers. You can prevent this by simply unhooking it when it's full.
Also note, it does do the "repeating key" thing, but this is actually caused by its battery saving circuit, and should only happen when you hit the first letter after a period of disuse. Prevent it by tapping an unimportant key (shift? Control?) before you start typing to "wake it up".
