    Can anyone recommend a good bluetooth stereo headset? I'm sick of earbud wires dangling and getting caught on stuff when I work outside in the yard listening to music.

    DO NOT go for the Altec Lansing/Plantronic Backbeat 903's. It may just be me but the fit is awful. Also doesn't work well when you're working out either. This set doesn't like sweat at all. Mine went all haywire just 2 days after I got them as a replacement to my first set from Plantronics. Having to send both back. If you can find a Plantronics Voyager 855 anywhere on the earth that isn't fake, grab it while you can. Has been discontinued, but that was one good looking/sounding bluetooth headset.

    I got the wep870s because they are $10 after the rebate. Had decent reviews. and for $10 it is worth a shot. Ordered with amazon prime so I will get them on friday. :D

    YAY I was helpful to someone! Haha

    I have a pair and I really like the sound quality ... they definitely have better sound quality than most wired headphones of an equivalent ($10-30) price. I would use them all the time with my Captivate in place of the stock headphones but 5.1 doesn't work for bluetooth audio :(

    One think you should be careful about ... when wearing it around your neck, be mindful not to catch the bluetooth earpiece/receiver on anything ... I was sitting at a table and I got up really fast and accidentally caught the earpiece on the bottom of the table because it was hanging in front of me and it ripped it off ... it still works fine in stereo mode, but I can't put it in my ear anymore :(

    I really like the Rocketfish RF-MAB2. Have had really good luck with them. Use them for running, gym, and casual. Haven't had problems with sweat and they do stay in place. A little difficult to wear with sunglasses, but they still work.

    If I'm looking at the right ones, I bet you love them. They had better be awsome for that price. :eek:

    Another cool thing to consider: $9.99 after MIR. Comes with microUSB charger. Just ordered one. :)

    Some of the reviews say the Samsung WEP870 has very low volume on calls and is hard to hear people. Have you experienced that?

    To tell you the truth -- I have not experienced low volume from the other party, but I HAVE experienced the other party telling me I was hard to hear. With just the earpiece there's no problem, and with stereo the volume is definitely high enough for you to hear. I don't know if the poor sound from my end was from ambient noise or interference or a crappy mic or what, though.

    I don't use it much for calling -- I use it mainly as wireless headphones.

    I just bought some plantronics backbeat 903. I know one guy on here says theyre bad, but I did a lot of researching and looked at A LOT of reviews, they seem like they have great sound quality, good call quality (not as good as a $100 set with no music streaming, of course) and the best features/controls. I guess if you buy them, get them from a place with a good return policy lol

    Have only used it for a few days, but loving it so far. Supposedly 11 hours playback time. Comes with a pretty decent microphone as well.

    I got my wep870's in the mail on friday and I am pleasantly surprised by them. I found the sound quality and loudness good. They are comfortable and stay in my ears easily. They will clip to a shirt neck so the bluetooth receive doesn't dangle around either.

    Used them on a call and I could hear loud and clear. The caller didn't mention anything about having problems hearing me.

    Overall, for $10 these are a steal since I'm basically using them just as wireless headphones. Used them with the lawn mower and one of the huge gas powered leaf blowers. I could hear the music just fine. The earbuds do a great job of blocking out the surrounding sound.

    So I just got mine from amazon and it looks as if they were returned. There are no extra rubber pieces, the plastic bag that they came was torn apart. Can someone tell me what exactly should be in the box? Also it looks as if I got some bits of earwax as a bonus!
