The only place I'd wear those are in the house. At least I'll have the pleasure of not hearing my wife and daughter laughing...

I can just see my fellow train/bus/plane passengers tumble to the floor wearing these! Oh dear. I'll stick with the very minor inconvenience of a cable (which on Shure e4c is not microphonic).

the boxes must look ridiculous considering their grafted to the headphones why would anyone seriously wear these

wow the more bluetooth headsets come out the more i think they are a bad idea whats wrong with the traditional headset

if you want a wireless headset why dont they try to make a simple headset that is transmitted over a simple frequency.

another alternative to wireless is just get an fm transmitter (one that fits on the bottom) and a nice fm radio headset ( i think they still make them )its cheaper and smaller

These headsets range up there on the scale of ugliness!!!

I bought these and they were definitively not as mentioned in the review above. Being the third bluetooth headset I have bought (and the most expensive), I had high expectations. They do sound great, BUT the range was only 15 feet (in an open gym), fit was not very comfortable, and worst of all, the phones would shut off when I tried to use the FWD/NEXT button! Given the strange look, Etymotic needs to go back to the drawing board on this one.
