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.

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 (-:
