Can anyone recommend wireless earbuds for a laptop (Dell Latitude D820)?  It would be nice if they worked with iPod/iPad too.  I've seen some postings on EE but none with a good solution.

Also, is there a better "zone" where I should be posting this???

thanks,
darin

You can try the       

Plantronics Pulsar 260
or
Samsung HM3500

both of which I've tried and used, and works great.

I think both of those are Bluetooth.  My laptop doesn't have it (and I don't think my iPod does either).

Other suggestions?

thanks,

You can try using the following connection

Scosche IPBCK Stereo Bluetooth Connection Kit for iPods

Eventhough it says iPod, it will work for anything that has a 3.5mm headphone jack. You can use this on your laptop as well and use any(most) bluetooth devices.

If you have iPod Touch, you should have bluetooth with the new OS update. If this is the case, you can simply buy a bluetooth dongle for your laptop for around $5 from dealextreme.com

Hope that helps otherwise most of the RF related headphone that are not bluetooth are over $50.

Excellent...I didn't know you could get a Bluetooth connection kit.  

Can you tell me how the quality of the Bluetooth earbuds compare to wired headphones?

thanks,
Darin
