Very Long battery life, Very light and comfy and I can listen to my phone or computer thru 2 bathroom walls and a kitchen cabinet about 20feet away. Outside range will be a bit greater with no obstructions.
I've never had luck with bluetooth audio from my laptop or desktop. Signal degrades after 3'. If any bluetooth pros can recommend something though, reps!
What kind of Bluetooth do you have on your laptop? It's best to have Bluetooth that's integrated with the WiFi. That way, the Bluetooth can use the laptop's WiFi antennae, which are larger and better positioned (usually in the display assembly). Also, in order to take advantage of the high-speed mode introduced in BT 3.0, you need to have a BT/WiFi combo card (standalone BT adapters cannot support HS--tough there aren't many uses for BT HS).
Anyway, I always throw out the junk WiFi cards that most computers are bundled with and replace them with proper dual-band, dual-stream Intel cards (6230, 6235, or 7260), and that's also how I get my Bluetooth. And the range is pretty good--my Sony MW600 (with a detachable/interchangeable earpiece, so I can substitute the earbuds with my favorite headphones) gets at least 50 feet with a few walls in between.
I'm skeptical of those nano USB BT dongles because they usually use some crap chipset and their antennas are tiiiiny.

not even worth the $7 imo. i got my logitech for $2 and the sound/mic quality blows the lenovo away. the sound quality is shoddy on the lenovo and the mic only works on 1 out of the 2 pairs i bought. also cheaper construction than my $2 headset.
seems like a good price for BT headset ones, $20 - sounds about right for gym and it has a microphone build in which is a nice suprise- will be able to answer calls between my music without having to reach into pocket or let go of bars. Hopefully its not to shitty otherwise though - seems that it sells for around $30 elsewhere - not a good indicator. Took a plunge nonetheless - repped!
