Thanks to flexible joint mechanism and in-ear use, the Plantronics Explorer 360A (50 euro) bombproof sits on the ear, even at a Rodeo-ride would tilt the part probably not from the ear. Here the test report with the Nokia 6300.

However, it is not uncomfortable even after extended wear. Practically: Plantronics grabs a car charger cigarette lighter with this if there’s even more to say and you about nine hours operating time are insufficient. The housing is clean, although somewhat stupid.
The Americans for the proper handling of the Explorer have earned Kudos: the keys give a clear message, the operation worked well during the trials easily.
Floor loses the Plantronics in terms of Acoustics: turning during a conversation quieter or louder, hear the chat partner at the other end is an annoying knock – and the conversation.
