Performing smartphone Bluetooth tricks, Sony's Smart Wireless Headset Pro sounds like a bright idea but doesn't follow through.
Headphones are available in a zillion styles, sizes, and price ranges. To help you cut through the clutter, we've assembled a list of top headphones by type and price.
The Creative WP-450s are good Bluetooth wireless headphones, but the step-down WP-350 model is a better deal.
Low-priced and extremely small, the $49 Plantronics M55 is a discreet and stylish budget earpiece, but there are better options for noisy outdoor environments.
The workout-friendly Jabra Sport is crafted to withstand exposure to water, dust, and drops without skipping a beat, but the tight fit and lackluster audio will leave all but the most serious fitness buffs craving something more.
The MEElectronics Air-Fi AF32 Bluetooth headphones are very solid for the money.
While its fit could be snugger and NFC pairing is a pipe dream for now, Motorola Elite Sliver's advanced features and battery pack travel case will please all but the pickiest Bluetooth users.
It's hard to beat the Jabra Supreme's strong noise canceling and voice command features. If you're willing to pay a premium and don't mind the design or lack of stereo audio, the Supreme may have your name on it.
If you can look past the failings of the Android app, the Samsung HM3700 is a useful and attractive mono-to-stereo Bluetooth headset.
The Plantronics Marque M155 is an attractive and comfortable Bluetooth headset that complements the iPhone's style, and works well as long as you keep it to indoor usage.
We recommend the Outdoor Technology Bluetooth Tags for their comfortable and secure fit, clever wireless design, and acceptable stereo performance.
