    I want to find a bluetooth headset to use. But I also listen to music really often. So which headset should I get in each case below?

    case 1. bluetooth/wireless no wire at all.
    case 2. bluetooth/wireless with little wire.

    I have had great success with my Motorola s305. Music buttons function smoothly as well as phone answer ignore buttons.

    My X10 came with the SE MW600 and it works fine. I swapped the headphones with Koss plugs though. :)

    From what I have been checking, I like both MW-600 and HBH-IS800.

    I prefer HBH-IS800 more, but I heard from someone claim that the battery only last for 2 hours of music steaming?? is that true?
    Can anyone confirm on this part?

    -Motolora one is a little too big for me.

    Don't know about the HBH-IS800 but the MW600 lasts for many hours. I haven't tried it a whole day but I use 'em when I hike and with appx 1h15m every day it took several days to get to 50%.

    I own a SE HBH-DS980. The sound is great and lasts approx 6 hours of music. Also, the caller's name and phone number displays on the OLED screen and is also able to access your recent calls list and make calls without ever pulling the phone out. However, it seems phonebook access via bluetooth is not supported on android 1.6.

    I'm at the university all day and 6 hours isn't enough. So if you want something that lasts approx 18 hours (never actually measured it) I bought the Sony DR-BT50 which also supports AVRCP and very comfortable to wear. Audio doesn't give as good bass as other DJ headphones but it doubles as earmuffs in the winter which is a bonus especially when you're waiting for the bus! LOL

    The MW600 has up to 8,5h of streaming and 11h of radio according to SE. It shows caller id and YOU CAN SWAP OUT THE EARPLUGS with other headphones with a 3,5mm plug. :)

    Yeah, I'd recommend the MW600s as well. Battery life is fantastic, and the ability to swap the headphones if you wish are great.

    Only niggly issues I have with them is that they don't display track ID from the phone (though they do for enabled radio stations), and it's hard to find headphones with short cords if you do want to replace the earbuds it comes with.

    And the volume control doesn't control the volume on the phone, just the receiver. And the volume control is a bit difficult at times.
