Bluetooth for phones and music

I regularly travel using Audible books for entertainment, and would like to find the best Bluetooth wireless headset that would allow me to listen to my books but also make and answer telephone calls on my iPhone.  I really don't care about stereo, and would prefer a single-ear device with an ear-hook (since ear buds tend to fall out of my ears).  But when I looked into the top rated devices (Plantronics 5200 and Sennheiser Presence) it isn't clear if they will allow me to listen to books & music in between phone calls.  Can you please recommend a device that satisfies these requirements?

Thanks,

Phil

They all do.. the phone takes priority over your audio so your media player will have its audio muted while in a call. This is the way it's worked for me even with wired headphones.

How come I'm not given the usual bar that allows me to rate your service?
