OK so now after 6 months or so of considering it i've taken the plunge and am now a HD owner. Now I need good fuctional headphones for calls and tunes.

So I would welcome opinions from the "experts" as to which to go for.

I'm no expert but I'm pretty happy with my Bluetrek ST1's which I got for £16.99 delivered from Play.com. Sound quality is great, they've got a built-in mic for calls, and the controls work flawlessly with the Touch HD. The only problem I've found is you have to be careful how you put your head back against headrests, cos there's a tendency for the headphones to get pushed forward out of your ears if yiu're not careful.

Does the S9 allow you to controls music (pause, play, skip) and volume controls through the headset? Also do you know if it works with the TF3D media player? Cheers.

I'm thinking of getting these when pay day comes around

Hmm... that price looks as though it's for a second most other sites a pricing from £50 - £70.

I'll need to look at these they appear to be a bit Star Trek :(

Does all of that with the TF3D player.

Works also with videos,handsfree,Coreplayer,Voice Recorder etc.

Control buttons are easy to confuse at first but fine once mastered.

Not too bad at all.

You only receive through the left earpiece and the mike is embedded in the right.

I do not use in the car but at home fine when I have music on.

Hey im using the Sony Ericsson HBH DS980 and they are perfect!!! Just one thing, when im watching videos with this i noticed that the frame rate has dropped lol n it is sometimes visible that the video stutters lol. Is this usual for all bluetooth headsets?? Because after all, the audio needs to be streamed to the headset via bluetooth rather than simply being relayed via the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

I've got HBH-DS970 and yes they sound fantastic, BUT no matter what I do I cannot get them to control Coreplayer on the Touch HD as they just control TF3D music player instead and I cannot change that, so I sadly never use them anymore as it's very frustrating.

PLEASE if anyone knows how I can make these headphones control the tracks in Coreplayer I'd be really grateful to know.

I think there is an option in Coreplayer where you can select certain plugins? I think one of these plugins allow you to control tracks in coreplayer. Hope that helps.

I've seen a couple of settings like you mentioned but couldn't make it work.

Do you know exactly what they should be?

I'd Recommend the Plantronics Voyager 855

Great for both mono/stereo calls and music.

If you shop around can get them for around £40.
