Looking for something cool to buy someone or an awesome new gadget to add to your wish list this holiday? Or maybe you want to treat yourself with something that can be useful and fun while doing your last minute holiday shopping. Why not pick up a nifty stereo bluetooth headset for that tech geek in the family? You really can’t go wrong as most smartphones nowadays have the stereo bluetooth feature built in – including the latest firmware of the Apple iPhone.

Regardless if you want to shop with Amazon or not, it’s always smart to go on there and check out their best sellers lists and read all the customer reviews. Personally I think it’s one of the best places to read real reviews & comments from the users in the real world.

With that said… check out the top 10 best selling stereo bluetooth headphones on Amazon.com right now:

My Favorite Stereo Bluetooth

nokia-stereo-bluetoothAlthough I haven’t tried all the headphones on that list, my personal favorite is the Nokia Bluetooth BH-503 headset. Not because they are Nokia, but because I’ve tried them before and they just sound great and are very comfortable to wear. The battery life is astounding (11 hours) and the control keys kick ass. Check out the 24 customer reviews and form your own opinion. I know these are a little pricey but in the long run you’ll be happy. These work great with the Nokia N97 and make the music experience complete. Most of the time I use my stereo bluetooth headset at work, leaving my phone on the desk and walking around my office jamming out without wires.

Do you already use a pair? Let us know if you’ve tried any of these top ten bluetooth headsets.

    @ Mike – Using the BH-503 with the N97 do you get slight gaps and short periods of either faster or slower pitch during playback?

    I have tried my N97 with the Nokia BH-903 and the BH-103, both exhibited these problems with the audio playback. Is this a general problem with BT stereo headsets or just Nokia ones?

    Has anybody here tried the Nokia BH-905's? Am i crazy for even considering spending that much?

    I'm using my N97 with a SE DS970 headset and have no problems. Everything works like a charm except the display of the mp3 tag info on the DS970's LCD. But that's a thing that never works when using devices from different manufacturers.

    I have the S9 pictured above. It is marginally useful, but it seems to work even worse on the N97 (used to use it with a razr2). Unlike the razr2, the skip forward/back controls and the call functionality don't seem to work. Even in close proximity, it can lose the connection to the phone – worse than my razr did. If the phone is jostling around in say your backpack while riding your bike or while running, forget it – it will contstanly disconnect at worst or choppy audio at best. It's really only somewhat useful if you're sitting at your desk or cleaning up around the house where you can lay the phone down.

    Hi there. I have the Nokia BH-504 and it's an excellent Bluetooth stereo headset. Can certainly recommend it. Works perfectly with my N97 Mini. Crispy sharp audio quality and brilliant range (about 15 metres).

    My one major complaint – and this applies to ALL Bluetooth headsets – is that I cannot listen to the FM radio with it. Because the radio app demands that a cable headset to be plugged in (to function as an antenna for the FM receiver). But the moment you plug a cable headset into the phone, the audio output goes to that headset and NOT to the Bluetooth one – even though the Bluetooth connection is active.

    I find it incredible that Nokia has not fixed this obvious issue! Even when I've plugged in the cable headset for radio reception, I would much prefer to listen to radio on the Bluetooth headset — so that I don't need to have the phone on my body and I can walk around with my hands free. Why doesn't Nokia allow this?!!

    So I got the Nokia Bluetooth BH-503 headset for Christmas…a little late, I know, but such is life when you depend on visiting friends to bring you your Amazon order.

    I must say, I'm quite excited about this little device. The headphones look really slick and fit very comfortably on my noggin. I've yet to try them, in fact they are charging right now.

    I think the work place is about to get a whole lot better. Do you think I should drive with them? Hmm…something to ponder…You never know how the police will react down here.

    I could be utterly wrong here, but I'm guessing that there would be significant difficulties in running both at the same time, as bluetooth communication relies on radio waves as well…Interference.

    Possible? No clue, but it sounds nice.
