Best unit I have found for the money and compact size.

Ok, so I travel about 250 days a year, so I can be very hard on a set of headphones from the wear and tear of the road, plus I am in the gym at least 5-6 days a week where headphones get a workout too. In the past, after tiring of damaging the audio jack on various phones and mp3 players from inadvertent pulling of the wires, I went for a set of LG bluetooth earphones. I beat them up for a year, and other than their tendency to fall backwards off my neck when doing bench press, I loved them...until a rental car swallowed them up in Dec. So, off to Amazon to buy the new and improved LG HBS-730. Wow....LG..what happened? The first pair had the audio quality of cats in heat, and range was awful. I returned them and got a new set, which were WORSE right out of the box. So, back they went and LG was out as a choice.
I did a TON of research on many units here on Amazon, and other places, and stumbled on this unit. The audio quality is light years ahead of my LG units, no wires or neck harness to slip off when laying down, and the controls are big and very easy to use. I have read the reviews about the battery life here,but since I will use these for workouts, a 3-6 hr battery life is plenty. I also don't care if they don't function as a phone mic as I don't take calls during my workouts. Overall, these are well worth the extra 20 bucks or so over the LG's, are very easy to pair and I figured out how to quickly use them without having to brush up on my Japanese to read the directions!
