Re: Bluetooth Headphones

I do find it mildly amusing that this thread was started by a spammer but turned into something constructive. As far as headphones go i love my motorola SD-10 HD. Got em at walmart. Stays in my ears no matter what!

I suppose I could I try to get something out of this. I have cauliflower ear so not many ear buds fit very well (I don't like over the ear ones, those are rediculous). Anyone know anything before this thread gets closed?

I also have cauliflower ears. The Motorola s305 mentioned above are what I use. They are a small on-ear headphone with a behind the neck band. I am on my second pair. First pair lasted about 2.5 years before I ran into issues with charging.

I think that the headphones that OP/spammer posted have silicone tips. I usually have no problem getting those inside my ear. I, however, cannot fit earbuds in either ear (such as the stock iPhone headphones.)

Take a basic set of iPhone or iPod earbuds (or a cheap equivalent) then get some of this stuff (WFS) and make a custom set. I've made two sets this way and the Sugru helps seal out external noise and provide a more secure fit. Just roll it into a short snake, wrap it around the edge of the earbuds, then put them in your ears and mold things so they fit you specifically. Let them set for about 30 minutes then remove them carefully and harden for ~24 hours and you'll be good. They'll still flex a little even when hardened but it's pretty tough material.

Thanks both of you.

Re: Bluetooth Headphones

currently enjoying the BlueBuds X paired to my new iPod Nano's, perfect combo for me and i've ran these buds through a gamet of anti-headphone movements: Burpees, HSPU's, overhead presses of all kinds, running, jump and even back tucks. All is good with the world with these things. Im sold.
