    I have tried different bluetooth accessories with my ip4 and have had no luck. The sound quality on these things is horrendous and the one I bought that could ALSO be used to play music was a piece of crap. It was the Motorola S9 Stereo Bluetooth Headset for iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G.

    The sound quality of music was all tinny... no bass at all. Voices on phone calls were so silent and distant even on 100% volume.

    Does anyone have a bluetooth that actually works? what's the price of the one you bought?

    Currently it is very difficult to wear the earbuds the ip4 comes with (they dont stay in my ears and it's impossible to drive stick with wires everywhere).

    Let me know what you have by posting here. Thanks!

    I have both the Blueant Q1 and the Jawbone Icon. Both have A2DP and can play music. Voice calls are crystal clear on both, and I'm very happy with both of them, although it seems the range of the Blueant far surpasses the Icon.

    oh thank you ... i didnt specify and should have, but those are single ear ones... I'm looking for something to replace the ear buds the iphone comes with... so i can listen to music too. It would have to be dual ear to work

    Ahhhh. I need to have one ear free. I don't want isolation. Have you had a look at Jaybird?

    I have the Altec Lansing Backbeats and have been very happy with them. My only problem is that I have very small ears and sometimes they don't hook over my ears just right, but the sound is great, both on my iPhone and my iMac. I found them online for $49 by googling them for best price.

    Alli. Yes I did look at those but they are super expensive. Lynda I'm going to look into yours. Is the bass quality good and dual ear?

    Lynd. Are those Bluetooth? I drive a manual car and get caught up in wires

    Yup, the Altec Lansings are bluetooth. I got them because I spend a lot of time in the garden and was getting tangled up in the plants all the time. Stereo, and the bass is very good - I listen to a lot of classic 60's rock and it sounds great! Retail is $98 or so; you can find them MUCH cheaper by googling. I paid $48 I think...

    Mystic, I couldn't reply to your PM because I don't have enough posts...here is my answer: I have the 903's. The only difference between the 906 and the 903 is the "dongle" that comes with the 906 for phones that aren't bluetooth ready.

    Problem with the 903's is that if you have the phone in ur pocket, it will cut out often.

    Thanks farbod but i never have my phone in my pocket and talk on a headset...i feel silly looking like i'm talking to myself. No-- the phone part of it is just for the car and music is for the gym and my phone would be in front of me while i'm on the treadmill or elliptical, etc.

    I love my Plantronics Voyager PRO+ ... It is the most comfortable headset that I have used, has great volume and really like having a battery gauge on my iP4.
