    who needs one more thing to charge? That's what I thought until I listened to a pair of Bose Soundsport Bluetooth headphones. Holy cr@p they sound good. 6 hours per charge. I cannot recommend them more highly.

    I need those for yard work! My headphone wires always get caught on the mower handle when I am turning. Talk about first world problems.

    I don't listen to music when I ride, I figure I listen to the music I like enough in the car and in the garage when I am cleaning/working on bikes.

    I often listen to book reviews or interviews when I ride. These have drivers for each ear, so you can hear the spoken words.

    Also, Ziggy Stardust sounded pretty good on them this morning.

    How are the Bose Soundsports with wind noise? I've tried 3 different cheaper models and I cannot get away from the constant noise.

    @ryant35 they are the best that I have tried, but not perfect. You still hear the wind,the individual drivers help, and I can "out volume" the wind if you know what I mean. But they DO catch wind due to their design and at speeds over 15 ish, you hear wind. If I wear to wear them for a time trial, for example I would wear a headband over them. I suspect that would quiet them down.
