I've tried countless stereo (A2DP profile) Bluetooth headsets and this one stands out from all the others for several reasons. Other than being a tiny bit flimsy feeling, this headset takes the prize for just working, virtually all of the time, for the common use cases for a wireless headset: 1) Listening to music/podcasts throughout the house/office 2) taking and making calls seamlessly and untethered, and 3) as a PC/Mac headset and headphone (and yes, it works great with Skype).

Here's how the DR-BT22IK/B breaks down:

PROS:

- The included iPod/iPhone dongle to add A2DP (stereo Bluetooth profile) to the Apple device requires no battery or charging, it actually draws enough power from the device itself through the dock connection. And it does NOT increase the rate of power drain noticeably. Just one less device to charge, an incredible feature by itself. And it's tiny, the smallest A2DP transmitter I've seen.
- Works just fine with the iPhone 3G, though you'll get a message that it wasn't designed to work with it. But it does with no problems.
- Sound quality and loudness is excellent for a wireless headset. Surprisingly, the bass sounds the best I've heard on a Bluetooth headset. Trebles have the typical limitation of these headsets and sounds slightly muddy, as it does on all the others. Lesson: The tremendous potential convenience of Bluetooth is still a trade-off on sound quality.
- Can pair with up to 8 devices at a time and comes pre-paired with the A2DP dongle. Had no trouble with pairing with my iPhone as a headset (not a headphone, which requires the dongle) or my Mac.
- The working distance between the headset and device is about the best I've seen.

It's a shame the previous reviewer gave these 1 star because I got a lot more than I expected from these headphones. In fact it's safe to say that these headphones restored my faith in Sony products. I had previously sworn off anything Sony after the whole rootkit debacle but I saw these on sale at the ATT store so I figured I'd give em a try.

The bass, midrange and high's completely exceeded my expectations. I don't know how Sony engineers managed to pack so much into a small pair of headphones but they did a good job. Initially I had some difficulty getting them properly seated on my ears. I found that you need to angle the headband slightly forward to get the best sound in both ears. This is probably because the top doesn't lock in place. I was able to link these up with my cell phone and pc (via bluetooth dongle). I'm pleasantly surprised at the microphone quality as there is no extendable boom. When paired with my cell phone these headphones allow me to switch from music to an incoming call and right back where I left off. I can't say much about the battery yet however I certainly got more battery life than the last guy. If you're looking for a pair of bluetooth headphones with good range for a reasonable price look no further. I highly recommend this product.

I purchased the Sony Wireless Bluetooth Transmitter and Headphone for Ipod after searching for some time for a pair of wireless headphones that would meet my limited criteria. I wanted a headphone set that sounded decent (I didn't need top sound), was reasonably priced, and worked well at the gym.

I found my answer in these headphones. I had read that they would possibly cause a greater drain on my ipod battery but since I don't use my ipod other than when at the gym, that was not a problem. I have not found them to create any issues with battery drain that would be out of the normal for something like this. The battery on the headphones seems to last a reasonable amount of time before needing a re-charge.

The sound is certainly sufficient for me. I can increase the volume enough that it helps drown out background noise without blowing out my eardrums. The headset stays on firmly most of the time, with the exception of bending forward at which time they'll occasionally fall off. No problem. I've learned to just push them back a bit further on top of my head so that they stay on when lifting weights.

The spring in the center of them, which allows for them to collapse, does seem a bit flimsy but has not created a problem up to this point other than to once in awhile pull a few hairs. Again, a simple adjustment on my head takes care of that. Folding them up is easy; I'm loving not having a cord to deal with that gets tangled or catches on the weight machines as I walk by them! The headset is comfortable on my head and I like the over the head style vs ear buds or the kind that clip over your ear lobe.

The transmission of music has never been delayed or interrupted while working out.

I originally bought the Motorola bluetooth headphones here on Amazon. I didn't like the sport style with the headband across the back of the head - made it hard to workout becasue the headband kept pushing on the headrest of all the workout machines.

So, I gave those to my wife and bought me these Sony over the top of the head, head phones. I use them primarily with my 32GB Ipod Touch.

I gotta say I like these better.

Pros:
1. Traditional over the head design.
2. Very easy to sync with Sony transmitter.
3. Good sound.
4. Comfortable to wear around the house or while workingout.
5. Foldable for easy and compact storage.

Cons:
1. Needs a hard case to insure they don't break while traveling.

Overall, great headphones to be paired with your Ipod or computer.
