What's are people's experiences with headphone upgrades?
Ideally i would like to keep the in-line microphone and controls, but wondered which brands people can recommend?
I also like the wires which loop around the back of the neck rather than dangle in front.

I think the sound i get from them is remarkable for the price.
They are exceptionally light and comfortable. (I can't use in ear buds as they always hurt my ears)
I got them on ebay for £23.

Can't fault them. :)
Here's a review of them.
Hope that's helpful for you. :)

Yes they have a built in mic perbear.
Here's the PDF for you to have a wee look over if you like. :)
Hope this is of use to you.
They really are great little headphones for the price I think. They last a long time too before they need a recharge.
I'm not saying they are the best by the way perbear, but I think they are great to listen to your music while out and about and of course you can answer and reply to texts with them on WP too for not a great deal of money. :)

You're very welcome perbear.
You might get them on your local ebay, that's where I got mine.

Don't know if this is of any help or not to you. :)

I know, they sound great too for all you pay for them. I'm not saying they would be as good as say £100+ ones or anything LOL.
Not that I would ever pay that for just listening to some music when out and about. :D

Currently I am having problems finding my headset from my Omnia 7. It is on "Searching" but does not find any bluetooth object nearby. It was different some hours ago when I had a work session with course mates at the university (of Gothenburg) when it all of a sudden found a phone. I have tried to switch my Wi-fi off in case that would interfer. Any suggestions, Theweebear?

Oh no there's always something. :(
Not really perbear, I just turn on bluetooth on the phone and once you initally pair the headphones it just connects automatically every time.
There's not really any additional bluetooth settings to alter.
You are searching with the blue and red light flashing together and not just blue? (Long Press on the headphones?)

Edited: I have tested the sound by making a phone call, listened to streaming radio and also a sound recording I made yesterday evening when at work at the Gothenburg Operahouse. I am satisfied with the sound and it is very comfortable to wear the headset. No pressure at all to the ears.

Aw i'm so pleased perbear, no, once they are paired that's you set.
Just turn them on and they connect automatically. :)
The quality isn't bad at all is it for what they cost ? They go really loud too without distortion. :)
That's what I like, they are so light and the cushioning is nice and soft on the ears.
I have had mine on for hours and you wouldn't even know they were there. :D

Yesterday evening I also used the headset to listen to a podcast I regularly download to my phone and it sounds very good. It is even comfortable to wear in bed. However, when I tried a video podcast the sound came over the phone's speaker(s). I don't know why and I have not investigated that yet. Still happy! Does it not look like Santa is preparing a pair for you too, SilverCha0s?
