    OK, do all of the headphones work or are there certain brands to avoid?

    Looking to spend $100 or less and would like to be able to answer the phone when listening to music when a call comes in.

    If there are links on this forum then please let me know and I'll continue to study this.

    Switching from iPhone on Thursday, getting excited

    I don't think you'll have issues with any brand as long as they're not shady ones. For the latter kind, I'd blame the headset anyway, not the phone.

    Yes, all Bluetooth headphones should work so long as they aren't shady (as previously stated) and fit within the Bluetooth standards. I can't really recommend a brand or model, not at the $100 price range. In my experience, you really have to spend $200-$300 in order to get something that doesn't sound anemic while only lasting 5 hours on a single charge. For example, I purchased a pair of Sony on-ear Bluetooth headphones a few years ago for $120 and they were just awful. The old Sony on-ear headphones I had with my Rio 600 actually sounded better.

    I've listened to both Bluetooth models from Bose, they both retail for $250. The audio quality of each pair was vastly improved over the Sony models though the battery life of the over-ear Bose headphones is still anemic (7 hours), the on-ear models are much better at 15 hours.

    So I highly suggest waiting and saving your money. I have had experience with other Bluetooth headphones in the $100-$200 price range and they all just sound like they are lacking something. Lacking detail, lacking bass, lacking any life really. The best sounding Bluetooth headphones I have listened to are the Parrot Ziks but they retail for $400 ($350 now that the Zik 2.0s are coming out).
