    After reading some threads decided to purchase the wireless beats 2 and paired with new Apple watch. Works and sounds great with music uploaded easily to watch. Highly recommend

    Considering these too. Had in my cart the other day but didn't pull trigger. The golden ones to match my iPhone 6+.

    I picked up the beats studio wireless last week and can't wait to pair them with my watch for gym purposes.

    I have the jaybirds and the sound quality over bluetooth is really poor. I am no audiophile and I can hear how low quality it sounds. Are the Dre powerboats any better? They are both around the same price point so I am guessing its an innate issue with bluetooth.

    I use to have Jaybird Bluebuds X. Great sounds however could not get them to stay in ear during runs.

    Have since gotten Powerbeats2 Wireless and I love them. Never been into Beats but their newest and higher end stuff sound great. Went and got Studio Wireless for the gym and couldn't be happier.

    So now I have wireless for running and wireless for lifting.

    The pointy shaped rubber that goes around the earbud is annoying to put on because it has to be rotated to the perfect angle for a fit in the ear. Even then, it still falls off after it gets moist.

    I'm thinking about getting the power beats 2 but $200 is hard to swallow for headphones. But I've had a lot of crappy Bluetooth ear buds

    I bought these on Amazon earlier this week for only $22. I'm honestly thrilled with them. Would I rather have a super nice pair of Bluetooth earbuds? Absolutely, but I just dropped $700 on the damn watch haha.

    I own the power beats 2 and they are great. Sound is really clear not to much bass. I run a lot with them and they stay put. Expensive but they were worth it. Had them for 4 months no issues so far.

    I bought the powerbeats 2 towards the end of last year. I use them in the gym and while riding my bike. The sound is great(not claiming to be an expert) and never have problems with the bluetooth connection. They are a little pricey but I really enjoy them - did get on sale for $180. I have not paired them with my watch yet but I am expecting all should be fine there as well.

    Plantronics Backbeat Fit Bluetooth earbuds are half the cost and a non-ear-rape design (non-sealed). Working great for me.

    I have the jaybirds and the quality is beyond awesome. Not sure what you are talking about. All my friends and online reviews also think that they are the best sounding Bluetooth earphones.

    Just picked up the Powerbeats2 last night. They're very comfortable, don't easily fall out, and sound great.

    Straight out of the box they have very little to no bass. I had read on another thread that if you use one the bigger rubber ear pieces it comes with (It comes with 3 different sizes/shapes), the bass will be boosted. After I did that they sounded amazing.

    Was never a fan of beats, however these are a winner.

    I completely agree. You have to use the largest ear pieces to get the best bass and sound.

    Btw, your screen name. Used to love that radio show.

    I own both the high-end Jaybirds (X something) and the Beats Wireless 2 and I prefer the Jaybirds. They are also cheaper (usually $119 in-store at Bestbuy vs Beats $199).

    Also: I've had the Jaybirds since April 2013 and use them EVERY DAY to workout and they still hold a good charge. :) Great purchase.

    I just got these in the mail.
    Tried them out on a walk tonight.
    They are pretty comfortable, sound quality is decent; but the volume isn't quite as loud as I would like.
    Pairing was easy but my music did cut out for a while when I tried to use the controls on the headphones; got it back up after resetting the bluetooth connection.

    For $30, though, these are a no-brainer.

    Absolutely. Volume is not an issue for me.
