    Hello,

    I want to get wireless headphones or earphones (is there a difference?).
    I'm looking for great stereo sound for iTunes music and TV shows and for use with Skype.

    There are plenty about but most seem to need an adapter/dongle to work. I do not need (or want)t hat as the Airport/Bluetooth is built-in.

    The Jaybird JB -200 looks good but I'm not sure I'd find them comfortable on my ears. What is the sound like when listening to iTunes TV shows?

    I just found these Sony DR-BT101 - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...Bluetooth_Wireless_Stereo.html#specifications - Anybody know if these are good?

    I have a preference for silver or white in colour to suit the Mac.

    Regards

    yes, but as I said most seem to need a dongle/adapter. I don't want that.

    Indeed. can anybody tell me of their own personal experience of these Sony headphones and the Jaybird JB-200? what is the sound like when using iTunes? Do they work well with Skype?

    regards

    no set budget on this - just reasonably priced (no more than €150 but preferably around €50), great stereo sound, white or silver (only interested in black if it's the Jaybird) and wireless without an adapter (must use the built in bluetooth or aairport on the Mac)
