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.

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 kogan.co.nz

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
