Hi there, I have an OKTA touch and are in the market for some bluetooth headphones. I tried some Motorola ones, but they aren't adjustable and fell off my head!! I can't seem to find any local (NZ) reviews on bluetooth headphones around. Does anyone have an advice based on their experiences or know anywhere that might have some reviews. It's a reward for giving up smoking 6 months ago, so I'm keen to GO SPEND SOME MONEY!! hehe.

Thanks in advance.

Sandy

You mean Bluetooth stereo headphones for music, not headsets, right?

In any case, BlueAnt is available though Dick Smith and Telecom stores. They are really good products - I have a couple here.

Sandy, have a look at trademe and HBH-DS220. With this device you can use any headphones you like, if your Okta does standard stereo Bluetooth then this should do the job.

Thanks Mauricio, I did go to DSE and Tcom (leading edge), but neither of them had stereo bluetooth headsets and looked at me blankly when I started enquiring. Bond & Bond did offer some Evere ones but I couldn't find anything on them. I will do some more online research on them. And yes, I do mean stereo, I have an 4GB storage card with all my music on it and take it walking and jogging with me. I'm just keen to get rid of some wires!

kiwitrc the ones you mention don't really look like they're wireless. But I will look harder into these also.

What a dilemma, all ready to spend money and can't find someone who wants to take it!! LOL

Thanks guys

Yes, the Bluetake is the only one that works with my Acer notebook. I use it for gaming and are really good. I just don't said anything because I am not sure where to find those here in New Zealand.

Hi,

I would recommend to get the icombi AH10 bluetooth headset, from Airlogic (Korean company). This unit can be use to listen to music and talk on any phone which has bluetooth built-in.

What I like about this headset is you can pair it with your cellphone and mp3 player at the same time, I use stormblue A9+ bluetooth MP4 Player. when someone calling my cell number the headset will pause the music and start ringing, then you can press the phone icon on the headset to talk directly off the headset. without even touching the phone. Once you finished talking and hang up the phone by pressing the phone icon on the headset the music will resume to where it was.

You can also use it with skype, msn, yahoo, or any internet chatting apps as long as your computer has bluetooth built-in or if your computer don't have bluetooth built-in any bluetooth usb dongle will do the job nicely.

Other cool feature is the remote control function for volume and track control on your mp3 player using this headset, very handy to have when you do sport activity like walking, running, at the gym or using public transport.

The sound quality is amazing, I took this headset to sydney recently and had a conversation on the phone at a really busy train ride. I could hear the voice on the other end of the line so clear it feels like I was talking in a quite place, it seem that the headset blocking out the outside noise. And I didn't have to yell out as well, impressive!!

With 11 hours battery lifetime when fully charged, I wouldn't complain :)

From my experience, by far no other brand beat this headset yet.
