    Great question Slowhand - let me throw in a few options I'm considering and see if anyone out there has tried these. I'm specifically interested in Bluetooth stereo headphones that also take calls. I'd like to use them to listen to music and podcasts when I'm working out or mowing the lawn - or just hanging around.

    Amazon.com: Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset (Black)[Retail Packaging]: Cell Phones & Accessories : Over-the-ear Motorola headphones; they have a great rating on Amazon but I don't think they would be effective enough at blocking outside sounds (like if I'm mowing the lawn).

    Amazon.com: Motorola S9-HD Bluetooth MOTOROKR/MOTOACTIV Stereo Headset (Gloss Black): Cell Phones & Accessories : In-ear, behind the head earphones/buds; seem to be mixed reviews but a good price. These would probably block out sound better but someone mentioned that they're not particularly comfortable and you can't really sit back or lie down in them.

    Amazon.com: Motorola S10-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headphones[Retail Packaging]: Cell Phones & Accessories : Update version of S9 above; reviews are also mixed and it doesn't seem to be much different other than the price (it's higher).

    Amazon.com: Plantronics BackBeat 903+ Headset: Cell Phones & Accessories
    Amazon.com: Plantronics 903/R US BackBeat Headphones: Cell Phones & Accessories Behind-the-ear/in-ear buds; somewhat better reviews than the Motorolas (CNET likes them too) but may not be for everyone. I'm not sure what the difference is between the 903/R's and the 903+ (other than price).

    Amazon.com: JayBird Sportsband Bluetooth Headphones (Midnight Black): Electronics : Over-the-ear/over-the-head; cool looking (or weird looking) but pricey.

    I haven't tried these yet but JBuds have been getting really great reviews and constantly upgrade their products fixing problems that most customers have issues with. This is their newest version with a mic. If I were to get wired mic headphones, I'd probably get these.

    I used these ones on my iPhone and it also works well with the Atrix (although the buttons don't do anything) still good though, they are a little pricey at $99

    I use beats by dre tour edition. But all I do is listen to music, never really needed a mic. And I would just get a bluetooth separate for me personally. I listen to a lot of music, and I'd only need a headset for when I'm driving and taking calls(which is practically never).

    The beats also can come with a mic attached to them. Not sure if the control button on the mic will work for music controls(as it's made for iPhone) but I would imagine the mic would work.

    So today is the first day I've listened to music on my atrix. Any one notice terrible quality coming out of the aux jack?

    It was also very difficult to shove the aux cable into the port, lots of resistance.

    I don't know if I have to change EQ settings or what. Or if it's just because it's pandora (but I never got bad quality on the iPhone). But either way, music quality is poor..

    My beats are good head phones, and they are coming out sounding very thin and distorted.
