I use these Motorola S10-HD Bluetooth earbud exclusively. I used them to replace a really nice pair of Klipsh earbuds and i don't think i'll ever go back.
Do you have to be a hipster douchebag to use them? ;)



No, seriously...anyone recommend these or another 'sport' bluetooth headset? I've broken an iPod and an iPhone when the cord caught while on the treadmill and sent them flying.

These things are worth their weight in gold. You can wear them for almost 6 hours straight and they will not hurt a bit. Cost about 15 bucks or so.

Sony MDR-AS20J Active Style Headphones with Soft Loop Hangers - Black


100%. These stay on, they sound great, and they let in just enough ambient noise to give you SA on traffic outside your field of view. Why break the bank on headphones that are going to get beat up and corroded with sweat and salt air?

I had the previous model, the S9. I really liked the functionality they provided. Not having any cords was a wonderful experience. Like you, I've also had problems while running on the treadmill, when I don't want (or have) my armband. The two down sides (and maybe this has been remedied with the S10): 1. I sweat an ungodly amount when I'm running and the sweat seemed to want to get in my earbuds on this model after about 15-20 minutes of running. 2. Battery Life. The battery life of my S9 is nearly non existent now. It lasted me for about 1 - 1.5 years before the battery wouldn't last for an entire workout. Again, the S10 may be better than the S9 in those respects, but when I get the disposable income again, I will probably be purchasing the S10, or its replacement.

i had the same problem....Once i sweat the right side will be silent and only my left one will be making a noise. the ones I have look similar to those pictured above, except the part where it says L and R, mine are black. They could be the older models.
