    I just wanted to share a great solution that I have found for listening to music and using my phone (voice and text) while cycling

    1) I purchased an LG Electronics Tone+ HBS-730 Bluetooth Headset
    2) Using Hey DJ or Voice Music apps

    Allows me to receive and answer calls and texts hands-free while listening to music and then have my music resume once I am done using the phone.

    This way I can have my phone in a pouch on my bike and still control everything via Bluetooth.

    I'm glad you found this to work. It will be useful for a lot of people who like to listen to music via Bluetooth as well as use Bluetooth for calls.

    I use one of these to stream Pandora while I work in the yard. Blocks out part of the noise of the mower/trimmer, and since I have a high-powered wifi router in my attic, I can pick up the wifi on my entire lot (0.6 acres). I have to turn the mower off to talk to the phone, but hey - without this I wouldn't even know if I was getting a phone call or a text.

    If I'm working closer to the house, I use the JBL Power-Up speaker. Very nice sound for such a small package. I just wish it had a handle - I move it around quite a bit, and it's just a bit too big to just grab with one hand and go. A handle would make it perfect. Or - if someone would make a case for it with a handle....

    How did you get the hbs-730 to activate cortana? I cant seem to make voice commands with it.

    My $20 Bluetooth headset from wal mart will activate Cortana, all you have to do is hold the call button for 2 secs. Even pauses music for voice commands/texts/phone calls and resumes automatically.
