    Looking into buying one instead of a new pair of wired headphones.

    What do you guys suggest I buy?

    If you've got the extra dough to fork out, these are the best, no doubt:

    They fit even the weirdest ears shapes ans sizes, work with iPhone and iPod Touch (2G), and the battery is quite long lasting. I don't have them myself, but everyone I know that has purchased them has never had second thoughts about their decision. Whatever you choose, good luck! :)

    There are dozens, if not hundreds on the market. I personally like my Sony BT50s.

    Do you need OS 3.0 to use these on iPod Touch? Or do they somehow work already?

    Yes, the 3.0 firmware update is needed to activate the bluetooth chip on the 2nd gen Touch. It won't work on the 1st gen touch. Expect it in June. There's a $9.95 Apple tax for it though.

    It's true that you need 3.0 to activate the bluetooth chip in the iPod Touch 2G, however some (if not many) bluetooth headphones come with adapters that plug into your iPod.

    If you follow the link in the first reply of this tread, you will see it is compatible with ALL iPod models. Click on the photos and click the last one to see the adapter. All it is, is a regular headphone plug with a bluetooth transmitter on the end. :) Having 3.0 will just not require said adapter anymore.
