I CHARGED UP a set of SonyEricsson MH-100 earbuds, pushed the power switch until little blue bars pulsated, and let my Xperia X10 connect with them. Two taps later and I had Monday's For Immediate Release streaming through the earbuds. To test their range, I walked outside in the rain, turned around 10m away, and came back into the house. I heard Shel and Neville talking the whole time. Then I went upstairs and they kept chatting away, one storey below where I was sitting. I need a cable-free listening experience because I'm doing a lot of outdoor work. The MH-100 also works with an old iPod connected with an aftermarket Bluetooth dongle.
Buy them for EUR 40 from Amazon. Or get them from friendly counter staff at Carphone Warehouse if they have accessories that fall out of a SE Aino box. But don't poach on my Clonmel Carphone Patch.
