    Anyone know of new stereo bluetooth headsets that can take advantage of the Bluetooth 4.0 profile in the iPhone 5 for uncompressed audio? I had a pair of plantronics backbeats that were great, however I dropped them and ran them over with the lawnmower by accident, and don't want to spend my money on a product that was designed 3 years ago.

    Wow, so I take it there are no Bluetooth 4.0 stereo headsets?

    Dunno about BT 4.0. But I just got the new HK BT headphones. Quality is so good, a bunch of other people at work got them as well.

    They're not Bluetooth 4.0, but these are amazing:

    They support Apt-X, which sounds much better than the standard bluetooth audio codec, and are extremely comfortable, sweat proof and sound great with lots of punch.

    I have the SB1 (previous version) and still love them. Going to probably upgrade to the SB2 soon though as I want Apt-X quality.
