    Bluetooth headphones (single ear)?

    Anyone know of any good bluetooth headphones that can be used in one ear and have easy to use music controls while wearing gloves? (music controls are important, not just a call button)

    I dont care much about sound quality because I use a low volume and wind noise will drown it out anyways. Just want something better than the stock Apple headphones when riding to work.

    AirPods are as good single as they are for both ears. They've been an amazing product for me. YMMV.

    Anker sport, I have a battery backup from them as well. Their stuff lasts, and they have power on one ear and volume on the other. Fairly big buttons.

    The back orders for 7+ months probably says yes beyond their being so good for the work I do. I did say YMMV.

    Apple headphones dont stay in my ears very well, at around 25mph they fly out every time from the wind and sometimes just randomly. I'd lose the Airpods on the first ride, plus I need something easily used with gloves.

    I use Aftershokz Trekz Air, bone conduction headphones. They've been great, like still being able to hear what's going on around me.

    I use these https://www.plantronics.com/us/en/pr...kbeat-fit-3100 (i can't use Appe earbuds either). The controls are easytaps on the unit, but not sure how it would work using just one, as the default at least has controls on both right and left. It has a lot of customization though, so perhaps take a look at the manual. They have been very reliable and connect with an ipod or phone easily.

    I got a pair Aftershokz bone conduction headphones and absolutely love them--both on the bike and around the office listening to podcasts/audiobooks.

    Another Aftershokz owner checking in. I use my pair primarily for commuting by bike, so I can hear things around me. But no isolation from outside noise cuts both ways, and I find these headphones are never my go-to pair for general use.
