I've had this headset for about 2 months now, quite exceptional, couldn't ask for a much better headset, with the inclusion of the external battery pack for charging on the go, you can't get much better.

Not at all, the only time I get static is when there are other errant 2.4 ghz devices in the area. It even has a missed call alert on the actual headset. One great feature of it is the fact that it has a wind passthrough, so when it's windy, you hear the wind but the person you are calling barely does at all. Makes it so you can talk when it's windy and they can still hear you, it's not perfect, but it does a fantastic job.

I'm not sure what they mean by "automatic noise control" but this headset does NOT have effective noise suppression. Callers will clearly (sometimes painfully) hear what's going on around you.

I got this headset to see how well it rejects noise, and determine whether my problems with near-zero reception range on the etyBlu were a problem with my 8820 or with the etyBlu. My conclusion was that the etyBlu has substandard bluetooth reception but OK noise rejection, whereas the 925 is somewhat painful in my ear, and has zero noise rejection, but has better bluetooth range.

I'm still not sure that the 8820's bluetooth range is up to par, but it worked fine with the 925.

I wish UmeVoice would come out with a wireless "The Boom" headset =P It's the only one where you can realistically have a conversation without anyone knowing you're not in the office.
