    Hey guys. I'm looking for some new headphones. I keep buying crap kind that are cheap and never last. I go the gym and want something thats gonna stay in my ear and not fall out and sound good.

    Anyone have the bose lE2 headphones. There alittle pricey at 90 but I know bose is a good cause I have there tv speakers. Anyone have these and can give me some advice. Just wanna see what other people say before I spend the money you know. Thanks

    New Jaybirds. Wireless, sweat proof, $$$ at 150, but they are awesome for gym and running. You of course need Bluetooth devise.

    I've been looking at bluetooth headphones myself. I like the design of the Jaybirds, but reviews haven't been as good as I wish. It seems that there is a resounding vote for the
    LG HBS700 where ever I look

    This website seemed to have the best grouping of reviews from what I've researched:

    I have these, and I can tell you that they are by far the best pair of bluetooths I have owned so far. I have had two different Motorola ones, and a pair of plantronic backbeats, and these Jaybirds rock. Of course the sound is not as good as the plugged in Bose, but for workout headphones I really prefer wireless.

    I love my bose MIE2's. Same thing just have a remote for phone answering and such. They sound amazing and I've never had a headphone that fit so well. There is no way for these to fall out with the way they are designed. I'm not sure why everyone doesn't make a contoured fit like bose has done. Well worth it!

    I do worry about the sweat though, that is a nice feature of the jaybirds, though I do think mine have some type of warrantee.
