Looking for bluetooth headset for working out

I would like some in ear bluetooth headphones. Price doesn't matter too much I just want the best sound I can get. Noise isolation would be nice. I want a microphone if possible. I don't like the kind with the solid bar on your neck like these http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-S10-HD-Bluetooth-Headphones-Packaging/dp/B004BHCSQC/ref=pd_cp_cps_0/191-9264469-5585736
sweatproof.
I'm looking at these plantronics right now. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AFGP5MM?ie=UTF8&SubscriptionId=AKIAIAA4MWUJXHBYFRNQ&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B00AFGP5MM&linkCode=xm2&tag=squidooa95135-20 I've never worn the kind that go around your ear like that but I'm willing to give em a try.
Any suggestions or advice on bluetooth headphones? I'm not an audiophile yet so all the specs are out of my realm of understanding.

  1. I went in search of bluetooth workout headphones but never found any that were water resistant (I sweat a lot when I run) or light enough (which means they move a bit as your run).

    As a result, I picked up a Sansa Clip+ 4GB player and Sennheiser PMX80s. I wear shorts or running pants with pockets in them. I put the Sansa unit in one of my short pockets. It weighs just enough to stay put, but little enough not to wag back and forth as I move. I run the cord from the PMX80s under my shirt or between my t-shirt and sweatshirt on cold days and this works great for workouts. You can actually rinse these headphones off when your done with your workout and they're dry and ready to go the next day.

    They are great headphones for running and working out with every piece of equipment at the gym with the exception of a bench press or other excersizes where you have to lay down on your back. I've run a half-marathon in these without sweat becoming a problem between my ear canal and the headphone.

    Another plus with these headphones is there's no cord noise. If you've used cheaper headphones, you know just making contact with the cord can cause a percussive sound to travel up the lenght. The cord on these does not do that.

    Not sure if you're 100% decided on bluetooth, but I was in the same boat as you last year and just wanted to give you something to consider. It works for me.

    Well a lot of them are advertised as "sweat proof" thats what I meant to say. Yeah I'm pretty set on bluetooth because I lift a lot and swinging weights around snags the wire a lot with my old headphones.

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    if you are looking for the best sound, cancel noise you note the Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless, is a workout-focused Bluetooth earbuds with a bass response that is a satisfactory for basshead-who like a lot of bass in their music. The ear hooks can be bendable to the shape to fit around the ear. It’s comfortable and you won’t feel weighty at all.

  5. There is a lot more available with regard to bluetooth headsets for exercise than there was when this was originally posted IN 2013!
