Can anyone recommend a superb in-ear, wireless bluetooth, with-mic headphones?

Suppose if you can, a nice trip to the shops on the balmy summer’s day. This is not a tension packed, hunger-motivated jaunt to your local supermarket followed with the bitter finding the bastards have put their prices up AGAIN…I said this was a pleasing journey. You head out into the warm, dazzling summer daylight searching for milk, some eggs and perhaps just a little treat for yourself. You slide your iPod from the compartment and…and…Wait a second, the cables all tangled up.

Hold on.

Gimme a moment.




By time you have untangled the wires, you’re out of a nice mood for the walk, you’ve abandoned that spur-of-the-instant jaunt to that recreational area you were toying with and you do not want to hear any tune at all. In truth, it’s too damned hot for just about any of that. You do not desire a nice, healthful tossed patch salad or Spanish omelette for dinner, you’ll just swing by the local grease trap on your way home. Likewise, there are bills to pay and housework to complete and arguments to see with your partner. Maybe you even cancel the journey to the shops altogether. The milk is not that lumpy in the end and you may make a perfectly pragmatic Spanish omelette out of flour, water and spaghetti hoops, correct?

To avoid this sort of thing happening to you, it’s advisable to try guided reflection, therapy, or self help books which can inhibit little things like a jumbled headphone cable sending you spiralling right into a profound, dark depression. But, if you can’t be troubled with all that New Age hocus pocus, then why get yourself a pair of Bluetooth in ear earphones?

Bluetooth in ear earphones don’t have a cable, all you do is slide the tiny beauties from your compartment, pop them into your ears and enjoy the ride.

Envisage our small sun-dappled situation again, now without the cable fiasco.

Your walk is agreeable and comfy, the hot sun gently caresses your face and there doesn’t look to be a cloud in the sky. A gorgeous member of the opposite sex smiles at you (no doubt drawn to your magnificent choice of headphones) and all appears right with the world. Perhaps a tossed garden salad becomes dinner and dancing? Perhaps a quick flutter on the lottery becomes a mansion and a pool house. Who knows?

I will liberally confess that none of the scenarios above are particularly possible, but, I’ll also say that using a pair of Bluetooth in ear headsets, at least the cables won’t get knotted within your pouch and annoy you on the day by day basis. Which has to be worth something, right?
