Hi, I did a search and found a related thread but not related enough.

Can anyone give any advice on which brand you think is good for:

Wireless blue-tooth headphones.

I want to use it only at the gym for some music while exercising.


Yes, I perused Amazon and google.

Any first hand advice on what you think is best. I'm open to the small buds or the big headphones that cover the ears. Both would be OK.

TIA.

I have tried 3 pairs of wireless earbuds and returned 2. The ones I keep are the Tranya T3. All were bought from Amazon. One of the best test of wireless headphones is using thing them with a phone GPS app. After waking up some earbuds will miss the beginning word or few words of a voice navigation. For example, Google Map says, "In 300 feet turn left on Lincoln Street." With some earbuds, you will hear, "300 feet turn left on Lincoln Street.", or "Hundred feet turn left on Lincoln Street." or even worse, "Feet turn left on Lincoln Street."

I returned 2 pairs of wireless earbuds because they failed this test, among other problems. The Tranya T3 passed this test. Here is my review of these headphones. I tend to nitpick a lot when I review things. My impressions of these earbuds are now more favorable than when I wrote this review.
