    Has anyone tried any of the lower priced Bluetooth headphones that are out there? Amazon seems to have loads of them on the market right now at around the £25-35 price point.

    I was thinking of trying a pair of Skullcandy Ink'd Bluetooth earphones. I've got a wired pair, and for £8 they sound really decent so thought the wireless pair might sound similar.

    Anyone recommend any that aren't massively expensive?

    Sol Republic Shadow Wireless are great and fairly inexpensive on Amazon

    I went for the Taotronics BH07u from Amazon, costs about $39 and the sound quality to me is phenomenal. Nothing would beat it at this price point. Bought them about 3 weeks ago and they still work without a single issue. Battery lasts me about 5hours on continuous playback and charges in about 1.5hours or less to fully charge. The bass is high and sound clarity is way ahead of my Plantronics. Has noise cancelation and Bluetooth 4.1. I pair it with my iPhone 7 and on the top right corner you get an additional battery indicator. Oh and they have magnetic clasp at the ends so you can secure them around the neck. Already bought 3 more pairs for colleagues.[​IMG]

    thewirecutter has several good write ups reviewing all types of headphones and price points. I'd start there.

    I can't recommend these enough. They are my go to gym headphones now.

    Battery if is a little short. 3-5 hours but they sound great and no wires!

    My recommendation is Skullcandy Uproar, they can be had at Walmart, BB, and Target as well. Great bang for buck.

    Thanks everyone - I'll take a look.

    I was thinking about some Skullcandy Ink'd Wireless because I've got the wired version and they sound really great, and only cost £8 so I expect the wireless version to sound the same? They've got a neck collar though, which I'm not sure about.
