    Default Bluetooth Headphone Recommendations
    Hey guys, I am in the market for some in-ear bluetooth headphones to listen to music. I just bought the Motorola S9-HD and they work great but after reading alot of reviews they seem to wear out rather easily. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

    Whatever you get, make sure they have volume control on them. Unlike the IS800's I got, sound great, but WAY TOO LOUD!!.. lol

    I would stick with what you have. That is an excellent pair of wireless headphones.

    Well they do work great now but all the reviews I read say if you get any moisture or sweat on them they will go out on you rather quickly. Im nervous to keep them because they only have a 30-day warrenty

    Get the plantronics 855 they are like a combo bluetooth headset with a wire and ear bud. I purchased mine off of amazon brand new for $35 shipped i have tried the motorola s9 and i through they sounded great but they were kind of uncomfortable to wear.

    I also use them for gymming and running 5+ miles. Even have a little sweat salt on them...for character....sounds great no problems at all.

    occasionally the volume will go all the way down, but its only happened twice.

    I have the jaybird bluetooth. And they're are pretty solid, they're also suppose to be waterproof. The only thing I don't like about them is they push the top of my ears out,makes me look like an elf lol. Other than that they're cool with me.

    Also like one of the above posters said the pair u have get alot of praise. So u might be good with the ones u have.

    I have the motorola S9's and I don't like them because they don't seal in the ear. Bass is weak too. I switched over to the Plantronics 590A, which are actually bluetooth headphones and they blow away the MOT S9 as well as everything else I have listened to. Additiionally, they have a universal bluetooth audio adapter that has a 3.5mm plug. This device allows you to stream bluetooth from ANY audio device with a 3.5mm headphone jack! They are available on ebay for around $99 with a retail value of $249 per Plantronics.

    Default Jabra bt3030
    I am using jabra bt3030. I absolutely love this one not just because of the ease of usage but also because of the flexibility. You can use any earphones along with this set. I am using Bose earphones along. Both music and handsfree experience is wonderful.
