Behind-the-head sports stereo earphones
Much like the Bluetooth mobile speaker craze that seems to be under way right now, a few years ago every company with a toe in the Bluetooth pool seemed to come out with a set of in-ear Bluetooth stereo earphones for active use. The Jaybird Freedom earbuds, Jabra Sport stereo headset, and Motorola S10-HD are among the more popular models that are still around. It seems these products must not have taken off like the manufacturers hoped, because new versions don't seem to be forthcoming.
This is good news for bargain hunters, as many of the above models are now available at deep discounts from Amazon and elsewhere. I had a set by a company called xStream (essentially a $30 knockoff of the Motorola S10-HD) that performed fine for a few years in the dry western climate here. If you exercise in humid environments, you'll want to go with something like the Jabra or Jaybirds.
