Work got me the Apple EarPods as part of my work from home tech package, they are great for conferencing, client calls, zoom calls etc.

Bluetooth earpiece.  I have one from Jabra and not only does it work well, but the battery life is really good.

GF got me some JBL Tune 220's for Christmas. Stoked on em!

Edit: Haven't talked on the phone with em yet so this isn't too helpful

Couple of folks at work have various JBL versions & seem to like them.

Not to hijack the thread, but what's out there for over or on-ear versions? I wear an in-ear hearing aid that makes the usual style a no-go.

I picked up the Sony WF-1000XM/B ear buds. 

I was skeptical about a Sony item but they’re actually really nice. USB-C charging of the case. The app is free and has many features including the ability to deselect what touching the earpiece does.

I’ve also got a set of those.  They are excellent.  Top rated noise cancelling chip.

Yeah only downside would be the lack of waterproof rating, but that comes with a reduction in sound quality IMO. 

Also have the ISOTunes OHSA compliant headphones for earring protection. 

Sony’s were top rated and half as much as the troublesome Bang and Olfsen ones my coworker has.
