    I've been reading reviews about BT earbuds for my iPod Touch. There are many options at many price points, and I'm feeling confused! I'm thinking I want earbuds...I would be using them mainly when walking. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I thought that I wanted them too, and then I started reading the reviews of some of the, what I thought were, better brands and was rather quickly dissuaded from purchasing them. Most of the complaints turned on range of reception. One pair that I very much wanted supposedly, according to the reviews, couldn't pick up the signal if you had your touch in your pocket, or on a belt clip.

    I got a pair of Polk UltraFit 3000 headphones and love them...

    What I was looking at were these from Denon. They looked good, and rather well sized, but the reviews scared me away.

    Exactly! So many mixed reviews! I'm willing to spend a little money, but not on something that doesn't work to my liking.

    The XBA-BT75 from Sony look good. I tried them but never bought them though. Only 6 hour play time per charge but it comes with a recharge case that stores about 9 more hours or something like that.

    Also heard the Jaybird Freedoms are nice. They are a bit smaller than the Sony ones and have equally short battery life.

    I've seen a lot of people wearing the LG Tone headphones but I'm not sure how comfortable it is to wear a headset on your neck.

    I personally own Sony's MDR-1RBT full sized headphones which sound awesome and have a 20 hour battery life. They're pricey though at $400 retail and not an earbud like you are looking for.
