    Hey, I'm looking for bluetooth headphones(must be bluetooth, my audio port is jacked up) that people here have used and enjoy (under $75). I prefer the earbud style as opposed to headphones.

    Also, if it matters, I would like to be able to control the ipod functions as well as use for phone calls.

    I've seen a bunch on amazon and apple.com but the opinions don't mean as much to me as the Macrumors community :p

    thanks guys

    You should check out the Jabra Halo stereo bluetooth headphones. Normally $129 but currently on sale at Best Buy for $99.

    They sound good and are extremly comfortable to wear. You can pause/play the music and answer the phone directly from the headset. I have owned a couple of different bluetooth headphones and these are by far and away the best pair I have used.

    The only complaint I have is that the volume control can be a little difficult to use at times. Otherwise a great product. Check them out.

    eh, those are really nice, but I prefer in ear instead of headphones.

    But maybe I won't rule them completely out, since they're pretty nice looking. How is the fit?

    They fit great for most uses. Very comfortable. However, I don't think they would be an ideal solution for running or any type of extreme sports.

    The problem with most of the bluetooth earbuds that I have seen is that the they are massive in order to contain the necessary electronics/batteries etc. At that point they almost aren't really earbuds in my opinion.

    Good luck with the search.

    Check out Jaybirds. Tested their newest version at CES - best BT to my ears.

    these seem to be highly rated for sweat proof and comfort but the reviews are saying that u need to place on right arm where receiver is or u will drop connection. SO left arm or down by waste u might have signal issues ...

    back to the drawing board for me ... i had the Motorola s9 and would keep my phone on the floor while hitting the punching bag with no connection issues....
