    I bought the one linked to below a couple of months ago.......I originally bought the Motorola S10 headset but found it was too uncomfortable.....this Sony-Ericson one is great.....the receiver clips to your shirt collar and cannot even be felt.......it even has FM radio built in.....

    I considered the one that you are looking at but I didn't want anything around my neck......

    Motorola S9 or S10's. Sounds great and comfortable for working out.

    I bought the Rocketfish BT headphones from Best Buy for $59.99. All I can say is WOW... The sound is INCREDIBLE! The range is GREAT! And the in call BT on it sounds better than my Jawbone Icon.

    I have used the S9 headset for 3 years and love it. I bought the S 10 set and found it very tight and uncomfortable.

    While stereo Bluetooth headphones can be convenient they really have horrible sound quality. The biggest problem I've had with my two Motorola sets is the pitch modulation that occurs. It's especially noticeable in accoustic music or music that doesn't use a lot of distortion. It's really horrible to me, maybe because I'm a musician, but anyone should e able to hear that there is a problem.

    Anyone else notice Bluetooth pitch modulation?

    I bought the S9 HD for my DROID, and then when I got my BIONIC I used them with that for a while.

    I bought myself a few Christmas presents - one of them being a brand new pair of S10-HD.

    I recommend both, but the charge on the S10s last phenomenally longer. Sound quality on both are good, build quality is top notch.

    I consider myself an audiophile, and I've yet to hear pitch modulation from either of my S series headsets.

    Then again, these are not just for listening, they are also for communicating - both include a mic and controls for answering, making and ending calls as well as basic music controls (next / prev track, start / stop / pause). That may be the deciding factor, though I doubt it.

    Since you are a musician, would you mind referring me to a track that I can compare with? Also, what device are you listening to the track on, and have you used the same headset with your computer (meaning that the modulation may not be because of the headset itself, but because the device you're using to listen to the music may, in fact, be having problems keeping up with streaming the music via BT to your headset, and thus the modulation...)

    The reason I say that is that with my old Motorola DROID, running CM7, I had very little system memory left - and I noticed that if I ran Pandora, especially on high quality, it did almost exactly what you are describing - songs I know by heart chord for chord would be out of tune, at times as much as a full step, and I narrowed it down to Pandora after removing my headset as well as my Motorola T505 BT to FM modulator out of the picture and listened directly through the phone's speakers.

    What would happen is that Pandora would run out of space / memory for downloading the current stream, and as soon as it had a chance to catch up the music would speed up - so it was most noticeable on pitch but if you knew the music enough, you could hear the change in BPM as well (I'm pretty good at discerning minute differences, though I'm not a musician).

    My g/f apparently is very good at listening and bought me the Turtle Beach PX5 headphones that I've been lusting after for quite some time this past Christmas. Though I wanted them for gaming, I was hoping they'd be able to work with my Bionic as well. Apparently they can, but I only tried to use them once when I initially set it up, and I was able to get them to pair but wasn't able to get them to play. I'll look that up when I get the chance. But in any case, they're excellent for gaming and I'm very confident that they'll be just as excellent for listening to music.
