  • Best Answer:

    The A170 and M165 headsets are completely identical inside and out. Same features, same performance, same warranty. The differences are in what comes with the headset:

    - The A170 includes the "exclusive Apple charging kit": a 2-in-1 charging cable, enabling simultaneous headset/iPhone charging via a single USB connection, plus a USB car charger. Together they are a $25 value. Whereas the M165 includes a standard micro USB AC adapter for connection to a wall outlet.

    - The M165 includes a 1-year subscription to the online Vocalyst service, which Siri renders superfluous, so there's no point in including it with the A170.

    - The A170 includes an iOS-specific manual.

    For iPhone users who typically charge via USB, the A170 is a good deal.
