Bluetooth Headphones advice wanted

Looking to give a holiday gift of Bluetooth headphones in the under $100 range.

I would appreciate any input from you on desireable models and undesireable models, and, of course, sales.

These would be for listening only, no microphone needed.

Thanks!

The first step is to decide if you want:
-In the ear (buds)
-On the ear
-Over the ear.
Each has its plusses and minuses.

I just went through this looking for a gift for a family member. Luckily, there's a new roundup of bluetooth headphones here: [thewirecutter.com]



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Its really personal. I found I need over the ear to be comfortable. I like the sony models but wirecutter reviews have never let me down.

Love wirecutter, but for wired headphones.... not so much. They recommend iOS/Android neutral phones, but I'm not interested in headphones without volume controls. I've posted they should just do separate iOS and Android reviews.

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater
