Bluetooth ear plugs
Hey everyone I've been looking or a way that I can listen to music at work with Bluetooth earphones that look like regular ear plugs. A guy I work with said he saw some just like the ones we use (blue cord with orange plugs). I would just like to listen to the music on my phone while I work. Has anybody seen any of these or seen a DIY to do it? I've looked all over google and haven't found anything yet.

wow, spammers R us in here
but as for your question, there IS actually a pair of earphones out there that are wireless like that... but they're around the $500-$600 range (around there). I forgot what they were called though, I do however know that they showcase them in the beginning of the movie "Definately Maybe" when Ryan Reynolds gets out of his office

This thread needs some serious cleaning.
Yeah, 2 minutes after I posted that someone cleaned it.
So who wants to buy me a set of those sweet earbuds? I wonder how long they go on a charge?

those h9s would be pretty sweet if you could wear two of them and have stereo music

Actually the whole reason I want them is to listen to music at work, I don't need a head set. I already have the jawbone II but I have heard things about the apple one. But I'm looking for ear plugs (ones that go inside your ears) that are Bluetooth so I can listen to music. I'll post more information tomorrow. It's sleepy time now.
I looked at those headphones from the movie and they are not exactly what I want. I was looking for ones that don't look like fancy dancy headphones but look like regular ear plugs.

well from what we've seen around, those are the closest thing to "in ear" bluetooth earphones that you'll find
03-26-2009, 01:17 PM #11
Or maybe something like this
CERULEAN TX + F1
Wireless Stereo Bluetooth
Transmitter & Headset.
And Sony Ericsson also have Stereo Bluetooth™ Headset HBH-DS205
and this one Sony-Ericsson HBH-IS800

ok. finally back on the PC....
those are very close to what i need! here are my ear plugs from work to give you an idea of what they need to look like (or close to it):
ideally they would look very close to that (very unnoticeable and inconspicuous. here are some that i found a story about, but the dont exist yet (to my knowledge):
taken from HERE.
so if i needed to buy the sony ones and do a DIY, that would be fine. but i was looking for the most integrated ones....
and thanks everyone for your replies and ideas
or maybe i could get these
and take off the plastic on the back and mod them that way....ideas?
these are SOOOOOOO CLOSE
Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 Wireless Stereo Headphone
if nothing else....
i could use these
and put some regular BT headphones inside. ive been looking for a way all night!

I have these and they are great but would be hard to mod
03-29-2009, 06:03 PM #14
Do you know if they have wires running through the back where the plastic headband is? I'm thinking I'm going to make my own using the big hearing protectors.
03-29-2009, 09:23 PM #15
The back is where the battery, antenna, and most of the guts are

dang! thats what i thought. i dont thing that im going to be able to make the ear plugs work. im thinking that im going to need the big ear protectors and put the regular BT headphones inside with a switch like this to turn them on and off:

I use these
I work in a factory where they require earplugs so I can't really wear earphones. But these look like i'm just wearing normal earplugs.
You kinda have to disguise the cable tho. I where a lanyard with my employee ID card in it around my neck and I just tie the earphone cord around the lanyard and run the cord down the middle of the lanyard where u can't see it and under my shirt to my pocket where my ipod is waiting. You end up just looking like you tied your earplugs to your lanyard so you won't lose them. Some people at my work do that anyway with there regular earplugs.
I was thinking about maybe getting an ipod shuffle or something small I could put in the lanyard behind my ID, or bluetooth receiver.

I almost bought the Sony bluetooth one. However, if you do a search for reviews on them when paired with the iPhone, you'll see that many people complain about volume control, or lack there of. People seem to suggest that there are problems with the iPhone Bluetooth software stack. Not sure if the problem has been fixed with the latest iPhone firmware or not, but beware.

i still might have to pick these up for when i work on other projects. how is the sound quality?
