Our lone thread was "behind the neck" wireless headsets, so this didn't qualify.
So I made this thread pretty generic. I'm really not into earbuds, they just feel like they're making me deaf and cleaning out my earwax.
But you can buy some pricey Bluetooth earbuds too.
I gave in to an impulse buy of Logitech's new Bluetooth wireless headset ($59.99 at Best Buy, I'm sure cheaper online). It's conventional design, a bit "plastic-y" but seems to be sturdy and comfortable. It includes a folding headset mic (oddly, it's on the right earcup unlike the left earcup as most I've used).
The battery is supposed to be good for 6 hours. It includes a USB charging cord but no AC adapter block. While it includes directions for removing the lithium ion battery once it no longer holds a charge well, it's apparently considered "end of product" stuff (i.e., the battery isn't considered user-replaceable
, just user-recyclable
*I have GOT to give it to Logitech for the most "pain-free to open" plastic packaging ever. Other than using a knife to slit the couple plastic sticker seals on the box, I didn't have to resort to scissors or special "hard plastic package opening" tools at all. Nothing was "sealed in," and it was all designed for easy removal and if I had to return it, easily putting it back in the box. I hope it's a trend.
*Most importantly, it fits my fat head.
They are lighter than they look, probably due to the plasticness.
Folds easily for storage, but while in its extended form, it feels sturdy. I mention it cause my Sony noise-canceling headphones, while they also fold like this, they almost fold too easily for their own good.
A little light does various things to indicate recharging status, and power on when you have it on. I'm not sure it has an auto shut-off when not in use, so it might not be ideal to fall asleep with this thing on. There's a mic mute button there too.
I initially thought the headphones were too quiet (even with my Touch on max volume). I was thinking I'd have to return it. Then last night I looked closely at the right earcup and realized it had a volume control ring (+/-) on it that adjusts headphones level independent of device volume. DUH!
So they sound good, and are NOT too quiet.
*Although it's heavily billed as for iPad 2, iPhone, Touch etc., it'll work with any Bluetooth-enabled device. Range is supposed to be up to 33 feet from the device. I mostly wanted it to listen to music in bed (despite the power switch concern thing), and not have JJ the cat scrambling after my headphone wires.
I've also been known to sort of roll over and have my Touch go flying off my bedside table shelf etc.
