    Hi all,

    I'm looking at getting a pair of Bluetooth headphones for my iPhone 7.

    I'm very specific when it comes to them, as I tend to only like the in-ear headhpones and am not a fan of over the ear clips. I also don't like the Airpod style where they just sit in your ear (as they always fall out for me)

    I currently have the Sony MDR-EX650APT and am happy with those.
    I was going to wait for the Beats X (due to the battery life) but am also looking at the Bose Soundsport, B&O H5, and Jaybird X2. Not to mention I'm impatient to wait for a vague "Autumn" release time.

    Any recommendations from people here? I do like my music (not particularly for the gym) but I do a lot of travelling and walking.

    Thank you.

    love love love my Jaybird X2 headphones. Sound quality is great, they are plenty loud, they come with a ton of tips so you are guaranteed to find a good fit. the wire management is great and battery life is phenomenal, I usually get the 8 hours advertised.

    Another JB X2 recommendation here especially if you intend to run with them. One of the few I have tried that manage to stay in my ears.

    Get something cheap to hold you over until the BeatsX, AirPods & Powerbeats 3 come out.

    Here are some $39 TREBLABS. https://amzn.com/B019DB5QQ4

    Mixcder bluetooth headphone will be great choice. The headphone gives 40mm huge dynamic drivers, 20 mW of power.

    Another vote for the Jaybirds. I have small ear canals, and earbuds either fall out or hurt me, but the Jaybirds are a great fit, sound good (for Bluetooth), don't fall out, and are fine with sweat (or rain). They reconnect automatically about 95% of the time, people can clearly hear me when I talk in a low-normal volume (I HATE loud talkers), and they hold a charge and charge well.

    I actually lost my first pair in the airport shuttle, rebought them on Amazon on the tarmac, and was annoyed to be using my backups (Apple in-ear headphones) for two days.

    Would you mind telling me if and how Siri works with these?
    Apple made a huge deal about the air pods having deep Siri integration which is now making me question about getting the beats x. I guess I had just assumed Siri already worked with beats headphones

    Siri works perfectly with my Jaybirds, so I assume they also work with the Beats.
