Hi folks,

I have been using a pair of evere on ear bluetooth headphones for years which were cheap but gave good service. They didn't have the best sound but as I was only using them for running I found them great. On ear seems to suit me best as in ear always seem to fall out and also block out more outside sound than I would like (I am becoming risk averse in my old age!).

I have found the Arctic P311 which have good reviews on Amazon.

What is everyone else using?

Bluetooth and on ear are my requirements.

Cheers, Matt.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Most reviews on amazon are either 5* or 1*. 5* are because people bought something and want to justify having spent the money, 1* is faulty products or grumpy people.

I reviewed the P311 headphones here and found them acceptable.

Have a look for the $35 kogans from

I use these. They're light, and cheap enough I don't mind the thought of replacing them when they stop from being outside/wet/sweated on
