Default Bluetooth Earphones

I've got an HTC One X and am looking for advice on Bluetooth headphones. *I used Motorola Rokrs with my old HTC Desire, but they've finally died - and as I*occasionally*had connection problems with them I'm not sure I'd buy another pair.*

I need to be able to make/receive calls, and the usual play/pause/ff/rw/volume controls on the headphones.*I will mainly be using them outdoors for cycling etc, so reliability and strong connection are at least as important as sound quality... and*I listen to a lot of what my kids call my "Shouty Rock" (Dropkicks, Skels etc) so high quality music reproduction isn't vital, as long as it's not too tinny and has got a bit of bass to keep me going**

I'm hoping to spend about 50 quid, but could go to 80 if that would get me something that ticks all the boxes. As you can guess from the fact that I've got kids and listen to Dropkick Murphys, function is far more important to me than good looks!*

Edit... I have tried a pair of Jabra sport earphones, but the connection was terrible unless the phone was strapped to my arm up by my right shoulder, which isn't practical for cycling.*

Any suggestions please?

Cheers, Moose.

I have Motorokrs which haven't died yet, although the battery life is now quite bad.

I guess you know all about them, though, so I won't say much more

Creative have a range of bluetooth headsets, sports ones have a mic too.
Always had decent stuff of them, but I know some think their stuff isn't the best.
You should be able to get them for the price you want, but not sure on the design myself to have tried them yet

Thanks for the quick replies. I've had a look at the Creative ones and checked a few reviews out - seems impressive so I've got some on order.

Cheers, Moose.

I might be a little late by the look of things but:

The Sony Ericsson MW600 is a pretty decent BT headset. You can clip it to clothes, and there is a headphone jack so you can change the original earphones that come with it to something else (doesn't need to have integrated mic since the mic is on the fixed piece itself). It has play/pause, back/next + volume control. Connects flawlessly. My only gripe with it is that the volume control is touch-sensitive: sometimes it's hard to adjust precisely. But other than that, a pretty good choice (got mine for 35 euros on Amazon).

I would agree with benitorios about the Sony Ericsson MW600. I think this is great, ideal for me, great sound. good connection, I also use this as my bluetooth car device as it has the 3.5mm jack, cheap, great sound. Ideal. The only negative is the touch sensitive volume control as benitorios also mentions, can me fiddly at times, but you don't need to play around with the volume that often. recommend.

Thanks for the further replies. Hopefully the Creative ones will do the job for me, but the other suggestions might be of use to anyone else who finds this thread when they're in the market for new phones themselves.

Cheers, Moose.
