Bluetooth Headphones, Part II

After a day of use, my new bluetooth headphones hurt the tops of my ears. I wish the plastic rims had some padding. Anybody have an idea of how to rig something up without looking silly? Padded tape or something? They're kind of like thick eyeglass earpieces. I can flip them around with the rim underneath my chin (speaking of looking silly), but they don't fit quite right. Also, why do they make you hold down the power button for 3 seconds to turn them on or off? I hate that.

You could try some furniture pads on your headphones - the felt ones, anyway. Also I think there are some good soft products for hikers who need extra padding around ankles/heels/toes/etc.

Do they require batteries?

Batteries are built in. Lasts ~14 hrs. for music.

try a medical supply facility. They have ear pads for people with over the ear hearing aids, and also ear pads for people with glasses. Good luck!

It is not aesthetically feasible to wear bluetooth headphones (regardless of whether or not you attach other items to them) and NOT look silly.

If you MUST wear bluetooth headphones, good fashion sense requires that you provide left/right balance by wearing either a lightsaber or a phaser on the opposite side of your belt.

I have the same problem but I have found a solution, I leave my headphones in the fruit dish on the dining table.

Try some black rubber "shrink wrap" like electronics people use...try Radio Shack.

Cut a piece to length, slip on the offending earpiece, hold a match underneath, et voila...it shrinks to fit. I did it to my glasses when the plating wore off and they started to chafe my ears :-)

...now if I could only fix the adhesive tape holding the bridge of my glasses together :-)

I'm curious to know which headset you use. The ones I've tried give the person called a slight echo when they speak (sounds fine in the headset).
