oh i would be keen to hear this one. I used Bose Freestyles for gym, but the blimmin cord does get annoying. Sounds are awesome, but for gyming, one does need something a lot more discrete.

try the Brainwavz , they have a really good reputation and all their products get great reviews, i use the normal brainwavz earbuds and they are brilliant.

Can you change the EQ settings on your phone?

I had some earbuds that had a laughable amount of bass,

Turned up the bass on my phone, all fixed

Next month I will work on World Peace but this month I solved one of earths other major problems...

Finding a set of Bluetooth earbuds... with bass!!

and the solution is two fold

PROMATE Stereo Ear Bud Bluetooth Headphones. DSP Digital Noise Reduction Technology. Tangle Free Wire. 7hours Playback.

PBTech sells for $89 I think Ask me nicely and I will supply a new pair For $80 delivered

now match them (on a Mac) with a program called Audio Hijack

and Voila! Decent bass on Bluetooth The software also fixes the low volume on the mac

Oh by the way the earbuds are multi connects to multiple devices

I think you'll find that bass reproduction is harder the smaller the speaker. 

I'd recommend something bigger, such as conventional headphones w/ bluetooth.

In my experience with earbuds, swapping out different ear pieces made the biggest difference to the earphones bottom end.
I have a set of Sony's that came with many, many different sizes, and they changed bass characteristics drastically.
