Default Are these wireless Bluetooth headphones good?

I've been looking for wireless headphones with just the wire and buttons like these are these good and worth buying for when playing basketball and just listening to music

I had some exactly like those that were under Plantronics name. I liked them very much. The only thing, if I remember correctly was the battery only giving you about 5 hours of continuous listening. But the sound was decent.

I don't see any mention of sweat/water resistance, so I'd be weary of using those for basketball or any activity where you'll be sweating.

the jaybirds bluebuds x posted above are the best bluetooth available. i have them and also the bowers and wilkins c5 that are corded. naturally the corded ones sound better (no bluetooth and bowers and wilkins sound) but for full wireless the jaybirds sound awesome. only problem is getting a comfortable fit.

Oh ok thank you all for the help. I saw the Jay Birds before but I wasn't looking to pay that much because I already have the LG Tone plus but I just wanted headphones like these with just the wire and buttons. Maybe I might end up buying the Jay Birds headphones eventually I'm not sure yet though. Will those headphones work good for playing basketball?

I have the new Jabra Rox: http://www.amazon.com/Jabra-ROX-Wire.../dp/B00IL7B2YM
and I'm really liking them. They are still pretty expensive, but a little cheaper than the jaybirds. I don't have the jaybirds, so I can't compare, but most of the reviews I read before I purchased the Rox said that they preferred the Rox to the jaybirds for sound quality. They are also water resistant so there won't be any worries about sweating with them.
