    These sound really good! Got a pair and I have been really impressed how long they last too.

    Why are people so bad at posting links?

    I'm not, I tested that link when I first posted it and it didn't work. So I redid it and it worked fine. Now I check the thread and it's broken again. Something is odd about that link.

    I replaced it with a related link that hopefully works.

    OT: Something is goofy about this forum and posting of links. No ebay link ever works. I don't get it.

    Back On-T: If these headphones are so good why are here so many open box versions being hocked on feebay? I would love to get some of these but I just don't understand why the quantity for sale. Everybody loves them that has them but obviously somebody didn't like them because they took them back. Puzzling.

    Don't think that is the case... These are ALL like brand new. All the ones we got were no different than the ones in the store, everything was in plastic...

    Nice! Thanks for this thread. I've been looking around for a decent pair of BT headphones or in-ear items for a little bit now.

    Anyone have other ones that they like as well ? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I got the over the ear ones and find them very nice. The sound is actually quite decent for a small speaker and the range with the Evo is incredible. The only thing I didn't like was that one of the buttons rattled when doing aerobics or heavy exercise. But I got them for sitting at my desk so that won't bother me.

    I picked these up (Rocketfish RF-MAB2) from a seller named dontmissonthis for $23 on ebay. Arrived in original packaging and seem to be working great.

    For a small pair of headphones they don't sound that bad. The bass is respectable for such a small set of headphones.

    It seems the buttons are the main issue for a lot of people. I guess my hunt continues.

    can you answer and make calls with this? also, how do you think they would handle during workouts? would the in ears be better than over the ears for working out? mainly biking.

    I use these to make calls and also as my running/workout headphones. Still going after a year with my hero and evo. The sound quality on calls is just as good as any other bluetooth I've ever used. I personally like the "over the ear" headphones. They feel comfortable and these are tight enough that they don't ever move, even when doing plyometrics during a workout.

    To answer the question as to why there are so many on eBay, Best Buy employees get a SUBSTANTIAL discount on Rocketfish and Dynex products. The margin on those brands can easily be 70-80%, if not more, so even at $22, for a $60 item, the sellers are probably still making $10 a pop. It is still a good deal (eBay) for those of us that can't get the employee discount, though.

    I'm thinking about giving them a try, but I've been spoiled with headphones in the past and I have a feeling I will be disappointed by the sound quality.
