    Im looking for a pair of bluetooth headphones that would work with the iPhone. Something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-MOTOROLA-HT820-WIRELESS-BLUETOOTH-STEREO-HEADPHONES_W0QQitemZ280194743075QQihZ018QQcategoryZ133229QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem


    Im thinking since iPhone doesn't have A2DP, im going to need one of those ipod connectors that hook up to the dock connection, but i don't know if that will work.

    Personally, id like a pair of headphones that would work with my iPhone, and with my laptop (via bluetooth) to listen to music/watch movies.

    I went ahead and bought these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=250209666862&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=015

    Im sure that setup will work with my computer, at least. And as far as I can tell, all i need now is some sort of compatible bluetooth dongle for the phone. My only question is, do i need to go with one that hooks into the headphone jack, or one that goes in the ipod connector?

    Will something like this work? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jabra-A2DP-Music-Bluetooth-Adapter-A125-for-iPod-iphone_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ6755QQihZ008QQitemZ180209670981QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

    I was doing some research on a good set of over the ear headphones to listen to music on the iPhone through bluetooth and all of the ones that I have seen that are compatible all have a base that connects to the bottom port of the phone (not usable with a case on the phone on any of the ones I looked at) and there is one set that I found that has a dongle that goes in the headphone jack but it is an enormous round thing the size of a hockey puck. It defeats the purpose of having a bluetooth headset if I have to have this clunker swinging back and forth off the end of my phone. I would have to set the phone down on a table and then it isn't truly portable then is it?

    Thanks for the information, I was recently disappointed to find they didn't have this item at Best Buy, instead bought the only Bluetooth headset a Rocketfish Mobile mono that was in stock at the time only to end up returning it. I did find the model you suggested on Buy.com.

    They stay in my ear pretty well. I only use them at they gym. I don't do much running to say if they stay in or not. I'll maybe adjust them once. Also, I use the comply foam tips and not the stock tips.

    They were delivered today and I really like them. Sound good, especially for Bluetooth and are very light and comfortable. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Awesome! They'll sound better once you burn them in over time. I agree, they are extremely light.

    I have been using the Motorola S9 and Motorola S9-HD for a couple of years now. The S9's are a great set of blue tooth headphones with good range .

    Here is the link for the S9-hd which is a couple years old but in all reviews they have always done well, and have a really good sound quality.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001LXR0BW/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000NKCO5Q&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=01KKVTGMTCYCH0FR4VJD

    They have have been replaced by the S10-HD. I have not tried those yet, but most reviews I have read say the S9 series is still better sounding.
