Default Bluetooth headphones?

Please Login to Remove!

Do they make good sound quality wireless ear phones/ear buds?

I need something that would allow me to keep my Bold in my backpack at the gym but allow me to listen to the MP3 player on it.

If giving up sound quality is the only way to do it, I'm not interested, ha!
I cant carry this thing on my hip at the gym like I could with my iFail.

TIA!

I have the insignia BT headphones. I like them a lot but look dorky. I had the motorola but they put too much pressure on my head.

Motorola s9, they are sweat resistant.

Behind the head earbud-esq.



Everything bluetooth is dorky, but these are a little more conspicuous (I suck at spelling)

Will the a2dp bluetooth headphone work for audio during video playback? Or just music/calls?

Yup! They work w/YouTube videos.

I myself have the Jabra BT530. I highly recommend my earpiece.

This ear piece looks like a normal single ear headset or am I missing something?

I'm looking for something in stereo...

The Insignia didnt look impressive but the Motorola one looked nice...

Are these things heavy on your head? I don't care what they look like as long as they sound good and don't weigh my head down lol. Do they stay in your ears well? How about in a workout environment?

I use these:

Amazon.com: Plantronics Voyager 855 Bluetooth Headset (Black): Cell Phones & Service

I bought them to use more for phone calls - but have used them a couple of times when on my push bike for MP3. The sound is very good and pretty loud. They also stay in place very well.

I'll suggest to make full use of bold...when you can listen music than a bluetooth headphone is a good choice... you can also check jabra 3030 Jabra BT-3030 Stereo Bluetooth Earphones - Black - BT3030 - Fommy.com

I'll give it a shot. The headphones that came with the Bold SUCK
Sound quality.. good; but the material they are made out of is NOT user friendly at all.

I have the Jabra 3030 and it does sound good (haven't tried it with the Bold yet). The mic is on the dogtag and I find it picks up a lot of background noise when on the phone.

I think you're looking for something that doesn't exist...I don't think any wireless device can give you the quality a nice pair of wired headphones will.

Hi I'm new... and read your thread... I'd suggest these (if money is no object)

SENNHEISER MXW1... they retail for "around" 499.00 :P

They sound phenomenal (can vouch for that)... but they do have a transmitter that attaches to your phone, that lets the earbuds communicate with the device. Since you're keeping the phone in your gym bag... the small transmitter could stay in there as well.

The transmitter is maybe a little bigger than a squared off pack of gum... and comes with a charging dock to charge the transmitter, and the ear buds.

Their comfortable, and for me, don't fall off at the gym.

(small details here)
The revolutionary MXW1 features unheralded wireless audio reproduction. Using the KLEER(TM) audio spec, the MX W1 delivers completely wireless stereo sound in perfect time and phase to the two remote receivers. Using a Twist-To-Fit design and high quality transducer, the KLEER(TM) audio transmission occurs with low latency and uncompromised reproduction without compression or shifting in the ear. The sophisticated and tech-oriented design is low profile and transports in a compact docking station that can charge the earbuds up to 3 times remotely.

addition:

I can also recommend the jaybird jb-200 .. they go for around 129. and have a microphone built in for taking calls... they're sweat resistant and sound great as well.

That would be ALOT of coin to spend on some headphones!

I think I'm going to go with the S9. They are affordable and not a significant loss if they dont work out.
