I have no idea who actually uses this type of Bluetooth headset these days, but new models keep coming out, so I'm assuming people are purchasing them!

I don't use them to talk, but to listen to music in one ear when I am falling asleep. I previously used regular Bluetooth in-ear headphones intended for music, but my cats chewed those wires. Does anyone else listen to music to fall asleep?

Tried it but kept getting paranoid about running the battery down to nothing

I sleep to music every night. Usually stream it from a tablet though. I've done the headphone thing from time to time, but this way, I don't have to worry about it stabbing my brain as I toss and turn. It falls out a lot too. I've even had speaker pillows. I'm in the market for a new headset, I think my jawbone has finally bit the dust. Are the newer styles the smaller headphone-like ones?

So from my own personal observations of bluetooth headphones, I see a lot of popularity with the large over ear ones, for sound quality, and the fully wireless earbuds (with no wire inbetween). The fully wireless look to be nearly there tech-wise... but still not quite there yet, I've never used a good pair so no firsthand experience. Apple is all in on their airpods though, so I assume the tech is there. I believe what's next (there are already some but I can't find any good ones) are headphones that allow passthrough of the surrounding ambient sound while you listen to your music, so that you have your listening privacy while still being able to hear the door bell, knocking, etc.

I wonder if something like this will pair with a PC?
At work we use "Skype for business" and I don't have a desk phone. I've used a Plantronics Legend for a long time. It comes with a USB Dongle to pair with the PC. I've paired it with my cellphone as well and it has worked fine until recently. Everyone complains my audio is aweful and especially when I answer calls on my phone I'm barely audible.
I'm in the market for a replacement but my admin is too cheap to give a replacement now and I'm too cheap to spend $80 on a handicapped device.

I use one of these. My car doesn't have bluetooth and if I need to take/make a call while walking around, this is a lot better than holding the phone up to my ear, or worse yet, holding the phone in front of your face and using it as a mobile speakerphone [roflol].

I also don't have an Apple phone, so don't use (or even like the look of) those airpods. Also, in some (most?) states, my Calif for example, it is illegal to drive with a device in/on both airs, so police could hassle you if they pull you over.

Talk about low fidelity music! [lol] What happens when you roll over? Do you have to search the bed in the morning for the earpiece?

Unfortunately, I am not able to use pillows with speakers and simply music from a device because I don't want to wake up my significant other. If you know of a better way to listen to music while sleeping, please do share!

Yup! The search isn't long - unless my cats decide to play with it during the night - and I prefer that they fall out of my ear during the night so they don't stay in my ear all night. I set the timer on my iPhone so that the music stops after a while.

I only listen to music in one ear when it's for sleeping. I'm a side sleeper, so I wouldn't want to have something between my other ear and pillow in any case.

I have considered true wireless in-ear phones like AirPods, but they're so small that I feel like they may be difficult to find if they come out of my ears overnight. I like Bluetooth headsets, like the one posted in this thread, because they're not tight enough to stay in my ear all night, but big enough that they're easy to find and my cats aren't as interested in them... haha.

I'm a freak, I know. If you think this is all weird, I got something stranger: I was talking to a friend who listens to music when he sleeps, and he says he listens to classical music, slow instrumental music, and nature sounds. He then asks me what sleep music I prefer. He was puzzled to learn mine is mostly pop and hip hop. My current sleep playlist consists of:
Music helps me fall asleep, but I also just really enjoy listening to music. For me, I'd rather be able to listen to music than watch movies, which I don't think is typical.

If your work PC has built-in Bluetooth, or you can add a Bluetooth dongle (this may require IT to help you install if permissions are needed), this type of device should work.

I use mine for something crazy like making phone calls. Although I don't have this exact model I am purchasing one. It's also very handy when listening to the radio in the car and getting directions from Waze in my ear.

They have seen a resurgence in Georgia ever since Georgia passed a law that prohibits phone use while driving. So if you don't have bluetooth on your car stereo, you need one of these bluetooth earpieces to legally talk on your phone while driving.
