    Looking for headset recomendations

    I'm looking for a headset (or two) and was hoping someone could give me some recomendations. I've never done bluetooth on a phone before (found out my old clamshell supported it after I bought my droid hehe).

    What I am looking for are primarily stereo headsets for listening to music. Ideally they should have basic track selection controls and a volume control. If they can also receive phone calls (i.e. has a mic) that would be even better.

    They should also be sturdy enough to stay in place during a workout at the gym.

    If there are wired (non-BT) alternatives I'd like to hear about those as well (for work).

    My vote goes for the Motorola S9-HD's. These are my first introduction into Bluetooth headphones and I am very pleased with the pairing of them and the Droid. Some reviews I read claim breakup of the signal with their device (must have not been a Droid) but I have not experienced any loss of signal with my usage. I usually have my Droid attached to my belt inside a Seidio leather case but have left my phone on a table and walked 20 feet away with no loss of signal or disconnect.

    I can usually get a good 5 hours of usage before they need to be recharged and they recharge in about an hour's time.

    The S9-HD's have a very heavy bass with the "wow" feature enabled and I usually keep that turned off due to it being a little over bearing.

    I use Mixzing to play my MP3's I have on my SD card and all the buttons on the S9's work great even with the phone locked. I can skip forward/backward, pause, stop and adjust the volume up/down on my headset without ever touching the phone.

    If a call comes in you hear a ring in the headset and press the phone button to answer the call. The music pauses and resumes after the call is finished.

    They come with 3 sets of rubber earpieces that can be changed out easily.

    So far I am very pleased with the S9-HD's and I recommended them as a good matchup with the Droid.

    I got the Motorola stereo Bluetooth for 59 bucks. Sorry I can't remember the model number. It is the one that hooks over the top of my ears and loops around behind my neck. It has all the controls for selecting music and making calls. I use it at the gym and it stays put without falling off. Sounds good and is comfortable.

    I was looking at the Moto S9-HD's until I found the Altec Lansing Backbeat 903's.

    They ROCK. Super comfy, stylish, great sounding and pocketable.

    I picked mine up at an AT&T store for $79.

    I would recommend the Rocketfish Bluetooth headphones. They sell at Best Buy for $59. I found mine on the internet for under $20 using the barcode scanner app. I have used a pair of knock off S9s and because I have a shaved head sweat would get in my ears during running or spinning and it would short out that ear. With the Rocketfish headphones they wrap around your ear and can sustain getting sweaty. I even used them for long bike rides and they do not have a problem maintaining connection in the streets. You should check them out.

    I would go with either the MOTOROKR S9-HD's or the S305's. Since you said you plan on using them while working out I would go with the S9-HD's. There have been reports of the S305's absorbing sweat into the ear pads which causes problems.

    I've used the S-9 and S-9 HDs for about two years. I loved how they sounded and fit, but I was never able to get more than 6 months out of a set before the sweat killed them (4 pairs in all).

    I also tried the Rocketfish and also liked how they sounded, but the fit on me was terrible. All ears are unique though, only way to know is to try them. I can't speak for their longevity - I returned the set I had after a week.

    I am still searching for a BT headset that can survive the workout environment. If I could afford to continue replacing them every 4-6 months I would keep using the S-9HDs. Can't do it, need the money for running shoes!

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I've been reading reviews of the various headsets mentioned and so far the only one that doesn't seem to die to sweat is the Rocketfish one mentioned.

    I'll probably give that one a go and see how it works out.

    By any chance does anyone knwo if the Sony Ericsson MW600 Bluetooth remote control headset works? It seems that it works under this protocols:

    Hands-Free Profile v1.5 (HFP)
    Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) v1.0
    Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) v1.4
    Headset Profile (HSP) v1.1

    Does the Droid has it? If so, then it wouldn't be a problem now would it...There is a store in NY that has them, and I would like to get one.....
