Perhaps I'm being dumb (not the first time), but why Bluetooth? If you have a PC/laptop, a webcam with built in mic is all you need (and most laptops these days have both built in)?

If you're calling Skype why not get a 3 network phone, they have free Skype to Skype calling

I've got a set from Philips very similar to click here

Fantastic!

Bluetooth is bluetooth - either a device has it or it doesn't.

ive done some reading etc and alot of people have problems connecting these sets to thier PCs for Skype,[the ones for mobiles] i always thought BT was BT bvut im not so sure after reading these

really - bluetooth *is* bluetooth. It's an encoding and transmission protocol, nothing else.

But you get people who do understand PC's and those who don't.

The only time i've found people who are havinmg problms, don't know how to set up their PC (or the software doesn't set their PC up for them). Phone's don't suffer from this as they are far less complex, and with only a very limited number of audio options.
