    My boyfriend has a Motorola Droid and wants Bluetooth headphones. Does anyone have any recommendations on which would be good to get him? I don't know too much about this stuff and I want to get him a good gift. :)

    I'm going to have to give a thumbs down to Motorola S9-HD. They were great for a while but after about 5 months the microphone went into permanent mute and another month after that most of the buttons stopped working. Apparently these are common problems.

    I bought a Jabra Clipper (about $50-$60) which is a little tiny Bluetooth receiver that you can plug any pair of headphones into. It's designed to clip onto your clothes, but half the time I just throw it in my pocket. It also has controls on it that work with the built-in music player and they also work with the Slacker Radio app. I love this thing!

    I have Motorkr S9-HDs and they work great... they're even tolerable outside! I got mine refurbed with a 2 year warranty from Square Trade so if they crap out it's just a matter of replacement.

    I would follow this advice. Bluetooth headphones are generally expensive and sound like crap.

    I registered just now to tell you that I purchased the Sony DR-BT50 headphones yesterday and they are an excellent purchase. While fairly expensive, ~$130, they can be found for slightly less on eBay, and are so far, amazing. Connection to my Moto Droid 2.2 was seamless, and the sound quality is great. I know people sometimes complain about how the quality of sound is inferior on a Bluetooth connection compared to a hardwire, but I couldn't tell, even compared to a set of Bose Tri-ports and a Sony professional DJ style headset.
