I posted this here http://www.modaco.co...DP-t254179.html
but like this headset so much I thought to share with a wider audience

Using these Bluphones from gear4 with SPV e650 & above registry hacks described in the above thread.

just got them today, sound great.
support voice dialing.
media player behaves itself with calling, - stops track, press to answer, end call = resume track.
controls for next track, prev trac & pause all work.
pairing was very easy.

they are 26g

very unobtrusive.

£50

supposed 5hrs playback/talk 60 hours standby, I will post back if not vaguely accurate

maybe they could be louder but can't really complain for the size
EDIT: - Volumne is actually good, I didn't have everything turned up ...hehe

Pic attached give you an idea of how small they are

Not strictly true that you have to pair every time, but how to get them working again after switching off is not intuitive.
-You turn on the phones bluetooth
-Turn on the headset
-Push the main Button on the headset
that re-establishes headset mode - "set as hands free"
Then you have to manually go into
-Comm Manager
-Settings
-Bluetooth
-1.Bluetooth (devices)
-Select the Bluphones
-Menu
-4. Set as Wireless Stereo

Have to agree that this fine when setting off for a 1 hour commute, but not something you want to do for a quick listen to something.

Be good if you could speed dial this operation (like a macro?) or put some sort of custom function on a modded home screen to do this, but I don't know how.

Used these tramping through Croydon rush hour and the sound is good, volume good enough to be heard next to a clanky tram, effective base & decent stereo quality, my non audiophile ears are quite happy.

Forgot to mention, in the box
1. Headset
2. usb charging cord
3. spare set of different sized earbud nipple thingames so you pick the set that fits your lug holes best.
4. quick start guide & manual.
