Want a Bluetooth speaker to match up with my phone. I like to listen to music when im on the long rides. Would be a plus to be able to answer ny phone also.

I would assume most ones on the market now are but it never hurts to check and see what BT profile the headset and phone will understand. I have the scala rider team set pro. They will take and receive calls but wont do music, but most of their others will. I the the profile for playing music is AD2P.

+1 on the Sena models. The SMH5 is the entry level and is what I have and am very impressed with. I use it riding alone to listen to music, GPS and even take calls (they can't tell I am on the bike). When riding with the Mrs., we use it to chat back and forth. We can even "share" the music so she hears what I hear.

The SMH10's do all that with more range and the ability to add more sets to the chat. If you have the cash the 10's are the way to go.

The thing I like about the Sena is you can upgrade the firmware and they just released a version that will allow the Sena to communicate with other brands.

Check out Revzilla.com for in-depth reviews and videos on most of the brands.

I bought the dual pack of the Uclear HBC200
Awesome set
Boomless mike and it works great for the wife and I
The range is great. we get separated by red lights every now and then, but we can keep talking.
It plays my phones music and sounds great.
And it has voice recognized call pick-up. All I have to do is say hello when it ringing and it auto answers the phone.
Great battery life too.

I ended up getting this one from Shark at the recommendation of someone on the forum:

It's inexpensive, but has been working well for me and the wife so far. Does intercom, phone, and music.

I too am considering a BT head set, and this one with the features described sounds good.

Do the others mentioned here have the 'Hello" feature to answer calls?
