Im wondering anyone knows of any and possibly used any "over the head" style bluetooth headphones, a friend of mine is after some but doesnt like the behind the neck ones as they hurt his ears (wuss)

Also, being a picky little gurl he doesnt like the size/look of the Nokia BH-604, wants something alittle smaller like my motorola ht820s, just not behind the head.

Does such a pair exist? And are they a reasonable price? (Ive bought 2 pairs of ht820s 1 new and 1 second hand off trademe for $60 and $61 which i believe is a steal) but i think he'd be looking at around a hundy, maybe more if it seems worth it.

Also, they have to be a model that works as a headset ie, has a mic as he wants to use them with his online gaming voip.

Any info would be greatly appreciated

He should try out the Sony Dr-BT21g headset - its behind the ears styled, but very light and he may well find it comfortable enough. I have the Motorola S805's over the head styled headset, but its a similar size to the Nokia BH-604's. Not too many other over the head styled ones out there as far as I'm aware. Howard Forums bluetooth section has some pretty robust discussion about every headset under the sun, perhaps he should look there.
