The Good Bluetooth wireless headphones for iPod; integrated iPod controls; internal, rechargeable batteries; better sound than stock iPod earbuds; surprisingly comfortable and light.

The Bad Rechargeable batteries not removable; basic battery-status indicator; not adjustable, so won't fit everyone; for iPod only.

The Bottom Line The innovative, Bluetooth-enabled Logitech Wireless Headphones for the iPod are a worthy upgrade for virtually any iPod owner.

Wireless Headphones for the iPod

Editor's note:The Logitech Wireless Headphones have been known to break during long-term use because of durability issues with the headband. If you are looking for a more durable and up-to-date pair of wireless headphones, the Logitech Freepulse Headphones are a better option.

Although it's anybody's guess whether Apple will release an iPod with integrated Bluetooth wireless capabilities, Logitech has stepped up to the plate with its Wireless Headphones for the iPod ($150), the first set of Bluetooth headphones for Apple's MP3 player. The well-designed product includes white neckband-style headphones with foam-covered ear pads and built-in controls, a low-profile Bluetooth 1.2 wireless transmitter (measuring 1.25 by 2.5 by 0.75 inches) that attaches to any dockable iPod, and a charger cable. (If you want wireless headphones for another MP3 player, check out Logitech's Wireless Headphones for MP3 .) The transmission range of up to 30 feet lets you conveniently stash your iPod in a messenger bag or a purse, for instance, while listening untethered.
