Bluetooth Headphones

I despise headphone wires. They catch on my coat in airports. I'm constantly rolling and unrolling. They get in knots anyway. The hassle actually deters me from breaking out my headphones on planes or buses at all; I'd almost rather be bored or carry a magazine. The wires tangle on my keyboard at work. I inevitably forget I'm wearing headphones and try to walk away from my computer. That's why when I saw Motorola's new bluetooth stereo headphones at Radio Shack, I simply had to have them. I also picked up the bluetooth stereo gateway so I can watch TV late at night without disturbing Krista or the baby (Radio Shack had a package deal: $200 for both). The headphones can pair with both your phone and music device at the same time. If you get a call, your music pauses, and the headphones turn into a handsfree headset. Great styling, very sleek, leather pads, very comfortable. 14 hrs. of music listening or 17 hrs. of talk time. 500 hrs. standby time. They charge in 2 hrs. with a standard USB charger. They come with a nice velvet bag to store them in. I tried to pair them with my Mac. It could only recognize them as a headset. The awful sound worried me until I plugged my stereo gateway into the computer and paired with that instead. Crystal clear even a couple rooms away. I guess it will have to do until Apple adds support for the stereo bluetooth profile (Hello, Apple?). Even Dagny digs 'em. She was jamming to Metallica this afternoon:

As for the bluetooth headphones.. good idea, I hope to see them get a bit more polished in the future as far as accessability.
