iLounge has a review of the new Wi-Gear iMuffs Bluetooth Headset for iPods and cell phones. These Bluetooth headphones are definitely designed for iPods as they have a remote control on the ear. However, thanks to their built in microphone, they’ll do the trick for your cell phone? What did iLounge think?

Pros: A pair of microphone-equipped Bluetooth stereo headphones that works with both (older) iPods and Bluetooth wireless phones, enabling you to keep one headset on for music and telephone calling. Headphones run for comparatively long 12-hour run time on included battery. Smallest transmitter we’ve seen paired with an iPod wireless headset, with good (but not CD-quality) sound quality and balance, and 30-foot broadcasting distance.

Cons: Incompatible with currently shipping iPods; only recommended for users of discontinued 3G, 4G and mini models. Headset remains large by most standards, and both less comfortable and fashionable than many people will prefer; wireless connection is frequently interrupted when transmitter is pocketed or bagged, and despite Bluetooth 2.0 billing, can’t take advantage of +EDR standard supported by newer computers.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
