    I don't speak much while playing and sometimes i feel like listening to The Ticket(1310) for my daily dose of sports/guy talk. I've tried using corded in-ear headphones but find the phone in my pocket distracting. I should say I only try it during winter as I can easily slip my phone in my jacket pocket which also has wire management loops sewn in.

    I wonder if the sports bluetooth headsets are comfortable while running back and forth doing tennis specific motions. Joggers/Runners have repetitive steady motions whereas in tennis there are back and forth, side to side, quick reversal of motion, arm swinging, head rotation etc which can cause the headphones to pop off or be uncomfortable.

    Does anyone have any experience with blue tooth headphones?

    If I'm just rallying and working on my timing, I like to listen to music too. Phone in my right pocket, run the cord underneath my shirt, so the wires won't get in the way.

    Sony's EX line of earbuds stay in my ears nicely, and they sound GREAT for not that much money.
    Klipsch Image S4 earbuds are also great too.

    I sometimes listen to music while hitting with the ball machine but have never tried it in a match with another person. I use inner ear headphones (Skullcandy Fix buds) which say in really well and connect to my Ipod or phone which I just keep in my pocket. I usually run the headphone cable up through my shirt so it doesn't get in the way and I don't find the phone/Ipod in my pocket particularly distracting.

    These look pretty cool though: http://www.amazon.com/Mini-Wireless...58462277&sr=1-8&keywords=bluetooth+headphones

    Regular earbud headphones, tuck it into your shirt and your good to go.
