    Quite a few models out there. Anyone have any experience with these? Will use them with my iPhone 4S and my MBA.

    I have the motorola MOTOROKR S9 (the first version, non-HD). still holds a nice charge and no problems connecting it to my iPhone & mac, sounds ok-good, mic had a few issues in noise environments but good if you like to run and work out. Heard the newer version improve the mic. I like mine for working out and running. I usually take the headphones that came with the iPhone out everyday because I'm a guy and don't want to wear it on my neck at all times.

    Avoid the Nokia BH-905 (not sure if this applies to the 905i) but the iOS Bluetooth stack sees the headphones as a headset and moves the audio balance to the left ear. Really annoying and has been busted since iOS 4 (worked in 3)

    Wired they're excellent headphones with good noise canceling.

    I have the jaybird freedom(jf3) I use mostly for working out, running. they come with lifetime sweat warranty, a few extra ear pieces to find the perfect fit. some people don't like the strap that goes across the back, but there is a lil piece to attach to make it shorter. I have enjoyed them so far and I love not having to worry about the chord getting in the way. good luck in your search.

    I have the Moto S9-HD's they are ok, I bought them when they were pretty new for about $70 (definitely not worth that much) I use them a lot when mowing the lawn/snowblowing or running, or just anytime I don't feel like dealing with the wires.

    something to note, bluetooth works great indoors when it has walls and doors ect to bounce off of, but if you are outside. make sure your device is very close to the headphones, otherwise they will cut out a lot!

    audiophile bt headphones

    i have a similar problem. i cant seem to find a nice pair. beats by dre makes a bt over-ears set, but i hear a lot of complaints. same with sennheiser; people say theyre good but not worth nearly what u have to pay.

    does anyone know of a nice, audiophile quality pair of over-ear bt headphones? money isnt really an option as long as they are actually good.

    i use an S9 headset right now and like does it work? yea. does it sound good ? no, not really. thanks in advance for any suggestions

    I'm pretty happy with mine so far but I only got it Thursday. So I really don't think I have enough hours in. Also I haven't compared it to any others. I wish I could compare several devices like that to see how they stack up. I might see if bestbuy will let me try a couple.

    I have LG HBS-700 and love them. Sound good, good battery life and fairly easy to use

    Well I like them allot in fairness though I have nothing to compare it too. I like to honestly say they are better or worse then say Dre but I never tried a pair of the bluetooth headphones. but I'm happy with my purchase I have heard no buzz or noise. I can go a couple rooms away in my house with out loosing the signal. I haven't tried it on a call yet. I also haven't got it to support siri yet not sure if it does. I like the 3.5 wired option. I have connected it to my 4S my touchpad both webos and android with no issues. comfort wise it's there controls easy to navigate..

    "MiiKey Wireless Rhythm" work great on the iPhone 4s. Can be found on Amazon. Great sound and you have an option of using a wire for non-bluetooth devices.

    I picked up the Jaybird Freedoms and I like them. I had another set from Jaybird and didn't like the fit. The sound is pretty good and the reception is ok. I keep it in my front pocket and only cuts out every now and then. Call quality is pretty good but I don't spend a ton of time talking on the phone. Jaybird also has bands that are bt and they are all sweat proof and guaranteed. $100

    Has anyone here used the Able Planet over-ear noise canceling headphones before? They're corded... and that's what I previously had fallen in love with, but I can't justify replacing them when the realm of BT headphones for the same price point is expanding (ie. $300 or less for GREAT audio). I've also owned the Bose QC3 and prefer the lynx audio system... I feel it's more balanced... but anyway, anyone know if one of these mentioned sets compares?

    What's funny is that it's not even a sig, he's pasting it into every post. On top of that, it breaks the signature guidelines.
