    Whether you love or hate your iPhone, you'll get tired of holding that big sticky piece of glass next to your face eventually. Want have a talk while you work or exercise? Need hands-free calling behind the wheel? Do you just have lazy, withered arms? Chances are you need a headset.

Because of the varying needs of headset users, there's no one Battlemodo champion, but some are definitely better than others. Here are the results:
