    Does anyone know or have heard rumors if the Apple Watch is going to come with bluetooth earphones? The watch doesn't have a jack to connect cable headphones, and since you can actually storage music in the watch and leave the phone at home..... Surely bluetooth earphones should be included?

    Speculation very welcomed :)

    Maybe with the edition as that comes with a special charging box thingy

    Since Apple's Bluetooth headphones currently sell for almost as much as the cheapest Apple Watch, I very much doubt they would be included.

    I think it's unlikely for them to be included. However, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple releases it's own Bluetooth headphones at the event which can be paired with Apple Watch, say, for $79.

    It could well just be a rebrand of the current Beats Wireless Headphones.

    Well, to me, that would be a bummer since I just ordered one of these babies yesterday :eek:

    I should be getting them tomorrow. Have you got yours already with you? They're supposed to be very good! Perfect companion for a run with the :apple:Watch :)

    I've been using them since Christmas, they're awesome!

    Make sure you take the time to try all of the different sizes and get the fit right.

    Get Comply Foam Tips and Lose the Fins!

    Had to chime in here. I've had the Bluebuds for around a year and a half and absolutely love them. Once you've had earbuds like this, you'll have a tough time imagining how they could possibly get better. I used to use the Klipsch S4i and loved them too, and while their sound quality may have been a little better, the quality of the Bluebuds far exceeds what I expected of them.

    But here's my one gripe: the rubber tips don't keep them in my ears, and while the fins help to keep them in, they're uncomfortable.

    Solution: Comply Foam Tips. No need for the fins anymore, and they've never once fallen out of my ears, even while working out. And they're WAY more comfortable and noise isolating.

    I order them from Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002P7EKAM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) - come in 3 packs, probably need to order new ones every 6 months or so (that said I use the Bluebuds heavily - maybe 1.5-3 hours per day, so the tips may last longer for most people).

    Take a look at the headphones Comply uses to show off the tips on their home page!

    I haven't read anything suggesting they would include Bluetooth headphones. This only really matters in the case that someone is using the watch for fitness purposes, which isn't necessarily a minority, but still. It wouldn't make much sense for Apple to include Bluetooth headphones as that would raise the cost of the watch, and most people probably aren't going to be using Bluetooth music streaming from the watch as they'll have their phone with them most of the time.

    i wonder how bluetooth pairing will work if I have the headphones paired with my phone and watch? Which gets priority?

    I have a Bluetooth headphone that is paired with my phone and my iPad. Basically, whichever one is currently playing sound gets priority, except when a phone call comes in, then that gets priority. If you want to switch sources, you either stop the sound on the source that is playing, or there is a switch on the headset that lets you switch sources.

    But if you are listening to music on the watch, and a phone call comes in, then that gets routed to the watch... so... Does it matter? :D

    I have the Bluebuds X - I too had issues with them falling out of my ears - I tried every combination of the buds. I ended up getting a set of decibulz which mould to the ears. Not enough noise isolation though. they are the best bluetooth headphones I have had - and I have had a lot. I am looking for to my Dash headphones though.

    I'd like a wireless version of the EarPods. I'd consider paying $49-$79 dollars for a pair if they sound as good as the wired set. Bonus if they throw them in with the Watch and Edition models (I can see them being excluded from the Sport model).

    I bought the Bluebuds X when they first came out a few years ago, and ended up throwing them in the trash a few months later. Not because they were bad, they were awesome, but because I get really stupid after a long workout and accidentally put them in the trash bin with some mail.

    Be careful with those things.

    But on that note, I'm waiting for my Kickstarter pair of Bragi Dash headphones. I can't vouch for them yet as they're not out and tested, but to me they're the ultimate Apple Watch accessory (which is an accessory itself).

    PS: I've worked out a headphone safety system since losing my Bluebuds.

    Wow! I just googled those things and wow, I mean WOW!!!

    I got my Bluebuds today and they are even better than I expected. But after watching the video on the Bragi website... Did I already say WOW?

    Only thing that puts me off is the price. Don't get me wrong. If they're all they claim to be, they are totally worth it...
