I've got a pair of JayBird Bluebud X's and love 'me. They're wireless earbuds and I use them all the time. Snowboarding, running, cutting the grass. They use bluetooth to hook up to your playlist on your phone or iPod. Pretty simple. It's always a hassle to get in and out of your jacket pocket to switch tracks, answer a phone call or what not. It has buttons below the right earbud where you can switch tracks, adjust volume, and take incoming calls. I haven't heard any complaints from people taking to me on the phone using the buds...no interference or not being able to hear you or vice versa. Wireless is the way to go and quality of sound isn't too bad. It's not beats by dre quality, but gets it done for the simplicity.
