Motorola Buds Wireless Headphones 

Another way to cut the cord

Motorola's "in-ear, wrap-around" headphones stay put and are lightweight, low-profile and so comfortable, you may forget you're wearing them.

Motorola's "in-ear, wrap-around" headphones stay put and are lightweight, low-profile and so comfortable, you may forget you're wearing them.

In a 2008 episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Dee Reynolds (Caitlin Olson) does a stand-up bit about high-tech.

"What's the deal with those hands-free headsets everybody's always wearing in their ears?" she says, "It's like, 'Hey, everybody. Look at me. I'm one part robot and three parts asshole.'"

At the time, bluetooth headsets were usually tiny gadgets (with a perpetual and annoying blinking blue light) clipped to one ear, as though the user was a cyborg or an extra in some Wachowski film.

Fast-forward to 2015. "Hands-free" is as ubiquitous as streaming music and TV, and bluetooth is as standard on many car models as power windows. Bluetooth headsets or headphones have evolved, too—both the technology and the aesthetics are more advanced. An excellent example of function finally meeting form in the bluetooth arena is Motorola's Wireless Buds. Over-the-head models can slip off when you bend over; over-the-ear headsets can be uncomfortable or even painful. Motorola's "in-ear, wrap-around" headphones stay put and are lightweight, low-profile and so comfortable, you may forget you're wearing them. They're great technologically, too. Specs (via motorola.com), include the following:

• An extended range of up to 150 feet

• Voice prompts

• Premium HD speakers with AptX® audio coding technology, which offers audio quality indistinguishable from wired with impressive dynamic range

• Dedicated music buttons

• Three EQ presets for customized listening

• Standby time: 17 days

• Talk time: up to 10 hours
