I'm looking for a good set of bluetooth in-ear headphones for the gym. To date I have been using an ipod nano with wired buds, but have lost the player and rather than buy another nano, I'm thinking of looking at bluetooth in-ear for use with my Sony Z2 at the gym.

There doesn't seem to be much choice around, any recommendations? Sound quality is important.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

I use the SportzBeatz Motion for running and the gym and am very happy.  Great sound quality, super comfortable (they come with lots of different inserts so you can find a great fit) and are noise isolating which I prefer.
The best thing I like about them is that I'm a sweaty bugger in the gym and these things stay comfy and are easy to clean/wipe down after use.  I went through lots of earpieces from different headsets (wired and wireless) before finding something that lasts.

Unfortunately they don't seem to be available in NZ.  I picked up mine in Aus - http://www.dicksmith.com.au/mobile-phone-accessories/sportzbeatz-motion-black-dsau-a8371

I bought these, and they have great sound, well isolated , and stay put while running...

Little pricey at $140usd from amazon but you usually get what you pay for, especially with bluetooth devices.

Thanks all, appreciated. I particularly like the look of the jaybird, so will investigate further (-:
