Bluetooth Earbuds?

Anyone use bluetooth earbuds? I'm getting tired of the wires. I'd like something comfortable and with decent sound. Something sweat resistant would be ideal too since I'd use it mostly at the gym.

Earbuds are ideal. I don't know if they make straight wireless earbuds though. I wouldn't be interested in a headset, I know Beats makes one of those.

Any recommendations?

Re: Bluetooth Earbuds?

Samsung HM3700 might be what you're looking for. I like them, but I don't know how sweat resistant they are. Might not stay in place too well if you're active though. I got them at Newegg for only $20 on sale. For you, those behind the neck wraparounds might work better for active use.

for the gym I use

or

because you can use your own earbuds with both of them. I prefer the second one because it's a lanyard that you wear around your neck.

I also have a Jabra STONE2 that I use for talking and sometimes bring to the gym because it's so small and convenient I keep it in my car just in case I forget, but the music volume isn't that loud on it.

Not completely wireless but great battery life and very comfortable. As a bonus with the microphone around the neck it doesn't pick up much wind noise.

Re: Bluetooth Earbuds?

Thanks everyone for the input. I was thinking something more along the lines of this:

I don't want to use the earbuds I have now. The wires are too long and get annoying. Anyone use something like this? How is the sound?

This seems interesting. Does it feel comfortable while you're working out? That's where I'll be using it 75% of the time.

Re: Bluetooth Earbuds?

Let me toss this one out there.

I use the single ear JBuds w/mic at work every day. These right here...

http://www.amazon.com/Earphone-Heads.../dp/B0069CZDQO

I also use this sort single earbud on walks at home doing this and that, just so I don't miss calls or miss things going on here at work. Does something like this, wireless, exist out there? They are very handy, but the dangling wire is a pain in the ass.

Before I found those JBuds I'd buy a cheap pair of earbuds and just cut off the left earbud. It worked, but pretty silly even to me, so I'm glad I at least found some good single earbuds period.

And of course Jaybird just released the Blubuds X. They look good, 8 hrs battery.
