Decent bluetooth headphones to go to the gym with?

I did do a search for bluetooth headphones in this forum, but couldn't find exactly what I was after...

So, I've got the N95 8GB now... Wicked, wicked phone! Loving it so far.

My new years resolution was to start going to the gym, but I need music for me to get through it! Could anybody recommend some decent bluetooth headphones that I could use with my N95 8GB? I'm not really one for ear phones, as they always fall out and, ultimately, I find them quite uncomfortable... I have seen the Nokia ones, but the one I saw was a proper closed-cap set (and they're expensive too!)...

Anyone have some bluetooth headphones that they could recommend?

Many thanks!

It's a tough one... I'm after some that can be folded up really or something like that... Don't think there is too many options.

I always find ear phones fall out of my ears (especially when running). The in-ear phones may be an option, but it feels weird sticking them so far into my ears. Rather have some that go around my head, but then that has the problem of not being able to just slip them into my bag or jacket pocket without fear of breaking them...

I'm a fussy bugger.

I have some i-Tech BlueBand ones which are pretty good. They sit over your ear and clamp on well. They fold up and are pretty cheap if you shop on the bay.
Probably suit your needs pretty well, I wear mine for jogging.

I put them on here before, but Play.com are doing some Sony bluetooth over ear ones for 12.99. Got a set last week and so far they work really well. Haven't tried them at the gym yet though.

Maybe too late here but I'd like to put my oar in for the Motorola S9.
They're comfy, waterproof and sound great.

I too, would like to speak up about the Motorola S9 headphones and notice they can be had for less than 30 on ebay - just search for S9 in bluetooth.

I wear them in the gym and out on the bike - in fact everywhere and they're the best I've tried in terms of lightness, portability and most importantly to me, sound quality.

Just a word of warning - I've found that the N95 is a bit susceptible to very large movements between phone and bluetooth device and this happens with every device I've tried with the phone. If you keep the distance between the phone and headphones fairly constant - ie in Camelbak on the bike or back pocket in the gym then there's no problem. Anyone else find that?
