    Bluetooth headphones?


    I'm tired of paying $15 a pair of skull candy's and only getting 3-4 months out of the jack! I've gone through 5 pairs in the last year. I'm looking into getting a Bluetooth set.
    Can anyone recommend a pair for a decent price? Thanks

    I got two pairs of Bose headphone one for gym only the other for everyday bs. But I have had the gym Bose head phones for almost a year and they get abused. They also come with a good warranty I have not used it. But there sound quality and durability are amazing.

    I bought some Insignia blue tooth headphones that are behind the neck style (which is my favorite). It's the best gym purchase I've made. Has controls on the ear piece so don't even have to look at my player or have it on me.

    Oh and they have been rocking strong since about 2007.

    get dre beats earbuds....yes yes i know, no one wants the big dj style and whatver but you can not beat a lifetime warranty for gym headphones and the earbuds look no different that any other ear buds, just are metal and no cheap plastic like skull candy

    Thanks for replies. I'm looking mainly at Bluetooth. All of my skull's have gone bad at the plug. So to eliminate that problem I'm gonna try Bluetooth.

    Battery is pretty good and goes strong. You have to make sure you have it charged up but that's not a big deal. It's probably good for 2-3 days without it. Mines hitting over 6 years old at the moment and no complaints except I lost an ear piece cover haha

    It's a bit chunkier obviously that normal behind the head but still pretty light and you become accustom to it quick. I've run, sprinted, lifted, flipped tires, prowler, etc and they don't cause any problem or move off my ear.

    I've had two that were great.
    JayBird Freedom and Motorola.
    The Jaybird were my favorite and sound quality was excellent. No more getting your wire caught on a piece of equipment during that crucial lift!

    Here my take on it.... I use headphones every day for gym and other stuff... I bought monster turbine pro gold(studio quality sound with life warrenty) ~$300 (dont buy on ebay fakes) regardless my point is buy more expensive headphones think about it you buy one good product and you get to keep it for years as it will not break on you i had my headphones for about a 2 years use it daily.

    All great input!! Thanks
    Still haven't decided on anything, reading a bunch of reviews. Really don't have the funds to spend $300 or even $100. What else is everyone using?

    Ended up going with Kinivo... $25 shipped from amazon and they are awesome!! Way better than I expected. Sound is great, fit my head good, comfortable during all lifts. I haven't run with them but then again I don't run much!! Bluetooth is def the way to go!!! I can leave my phone in my bag and lift! I listen to pandora, and I can change songs from the headset! So far so good!!
