Hey guys, can most BT headsets be used in both ears? Or are they usually only made for the right side ear?

Hmmm... not all are made for both ears though, so you'd best ask before you buy!

The SE HBH-660 is for both ears, the display can be the other way round.
The disadvantage is that the volume buttons are at the bottom when you wear it in your left ear.

MOST are made for both ears, but for me personally I can't wear it on the left. Just feels real weird, what about other users? Anyone can wear on either ear and feel comfortable? Just wondering. :gathering:

haha, opposite with me, I can't stand listening to any phone on the right side - I just don't feel I can hear as well out of that side. Plus I'm kind of "both handed" but I switched to left handedness when I was young, so I'm more lefty with my hands. I still kick and throw right handed though.

I always phone on my left ear, wear my headsets left as well. My hearing is better on the left (or maybe it isn't but it just feels like that) my right ear has suffered too much as a child :lol:

Good headset manufacturers like Plantronics always make sure that you can adjust the headset to sit on either the left or the right side of your head:)

Good to hear - mine should be arriving in the mail soon. Since it is a prize, I don't know what brand it is. Will just have to wait and see... Can't wait to get it!
