Audio [Q] Wireless headphones for Music + Calls

Question for all you folks out there. I'm looking for headphones-- I actually just bought the Beats Wireless headphones.. and considering returning.

Selection Criteria
- I'm on phone calls for work a lot
- I listen to a good amount of Pandora through laptop and Note 3
- Like having bluetooth for wireless
- Like having a 3.5mm jack option
- Durability is a big plus
- Battery life not a top priority, as I'm usually close to a charger
- Noise cancellation not top priority

Based on these, I chose the Beats Wireless on-ear headphones. I haven't tested out on calls yet, but the sound is pretty good. But wow-- do they feel cheap with all that plastic!

I'm considering returning them, and have been looking at the Bose AE2w wireless headphones, and purchasing a 3.5mm cable for $30 ($%#&). I don't like their wireless implementation with the after-thought-looking dongle that comes with them.

What do guys recommend?

I'm loving my plantronics back beat go 2's. They don't meet your 3.5mm jack requirement but are otherwise great.
