Hey folks,

I'm a bit sick of wearing the in-ear headset that came with my S3. Now I'm looking for on/over-ear wired headset that I can use to answer calls too. Ideally, at the risk of looking like teenage music junkies (if that's even a term), I would like one that's comfortable enough hanging around my neck - nothing ginormous.

Any suggestions please? I googled for "android stereo headset" and the results confused me even more.

I use SOL Republic Tracks with my iPhone.

I find them to be excellent for every day use and very durable.

Not that cheap at $170 a pair, but heaps cheaper than many in their class.

I think they look good too.

The only thing I'd caution against is wearing them with glasses as they can be a bit of an uncomfortable combination.
