Another vote for the SENA headset. I really like it, and use it every day while commuting. Phone calls work great, people never comment on me being hard to hear or anything (I bet a majority of them don't even realize I'm actively riding a motorcycle while I talk to them).
Two things about it...
1) the speakers are pretty good, but don't get REALLY loud. So you may want to play around with installation to make sure they are as directly over your ears as possible (not too much higher, lower, etc.), and close to them.
2) Realize that with a bluetooth thing like this, it DOES take a second or two to connect to another one when talking. So if my wife is riding with me, she hits the button to connect to talk, and then it takes about two seconds before it connects. Wired systems are instantaneous, wireless save power by waiting for a "request" to talk, and THEN asking for a connection and receiving it. Not a big deal for general conversation, but don't depend on your passenger or someone else being able to yell, "WATCH OUT FOR THAT CAR", because by the time it connects to send the message, it'd be too late.
